The documentation should also clearly state whether any excess funds are to be refunded to the student or sent back to the third party billing sponsor.
  2. Students will be financially cleared only in the event the third party billing sponsor is covering tuition, fees and any other charges in full. THE INSTITUTE RESERVES THE RIGHT TO BLOCK FUTURE REGISTRATIONS IN THE EVENT THE THIRD PARTY BILLING SPONSOR HAS NOT PAID THEIR PORTION PRIOR TO THE BEGINNING OF A SUBSEQUENT SEMESTER.
  3. Students will not be financially cleared in the event the third party billing sponsor is only covering a portion of the tuition and fees unless the portion not covered by the third party sponsor is paid in full by some other means.

Students can apply for refunds only in the event that the third party billing sponsor letter has been received and either payment in full is as a result of the letter, or additional financial aid must be in an approved status at the time the letter is presented. Refunds are not available until after the drop/add period ends for each semester.
