Refund Policy 

Beulah Heights University has adopted a new withdrawal refund policy.  This policy will take effect immediately so please read the information below carefully:

Students who drop a course before the end of the fourth week of a semester will receive a refund for their tuition on a pro-rata basis depending on the date of the course withdrawal. Students who need to add or drop courses are strongly encouraged to do so by the end of the official first week of the semester.  Course additions will only be allowed during week one (drop/add period).

Please note: Not attending classes for which you have registered does not entitle you to a refund of the charges incurred. You must drop your class(es) by the add/drop deadline or withdraw from ALL classes to receive a refund. Tuition and fee refunds are based on the date you have withdrawn from all your classes.  Refunds remaining on student’s accounts after book purchases will be issued when the money is received from the source by the University. Refunds will not be made until Beulah Heights University is in possession of the funds. Students should not depend on receiving their refunds by a certain date, as refunds will not be available before the end of the seventh week of the semester at the earliest.

All classes/courses are subject to the same withdrawal refund policy, which includes modulars, directed studies, internships, and online.

 Also, according to Beulah Heights University’s General Catalog, refund calculations for students receiving federal financial aid are as follows:

1.  Federal regulations require schools participating in the Student Financial Aid Programs to use the federal refund policy as set forth in the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, Public Law 105-244 for students who receives financial aid when they withdraw from the college.  This policy applies to tuition, fees, room, and board.

2.  For withdrawals prior to the first day of classes, a student receives a 100% refund.  If a student withdraws from Beulah Heights University and is receiving federal financial aid, a portion of those funds may be returned to the federal aid program  based on the following: 

A.  If a student withdraws before completing 60% of the semester, the student is only entitled to federal student aid based on the percentage of time that was completed.  Pro-rated refunds are calculated and determined by percentage of the semester that has been completed up to and including the official date of withdrawals.

B.  Based on this calculation, the University (Financial Aid Department) determines the amount of financial aid that is unearned and is responsible for returning any portion necessary to the appropriate financial aid programs.  Financial aid funds are returned to the federal programs in the following order: Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan, Subsidized Stafford Loan, Federal Pell Grant and Federal SEOG.  Any remaining credit balances will be returned to the college and/or student.

Based on the above information, the Financial Aid Department calculates the R2T4 (Return to Title IV) amount and provides the Business Office with a Return/Refund Manifest detailing specific information about this return.  The Financial Aid Department then submits a requisition made payable to Beulah Heights University to deposit R2T4 funds in Federal account to enable the U.S. Department of Education to later auto debit this account to return to the lender.
