Ross University Vet School TUITION POLICIES
TUITION POLICY ON FAILED COURSES
If you fail any course in any semester, you will be required to repeat that course and will be charged for it. If you are currently in a remedial semester and are required to repeat courses that you have passed previously, you are eligible for a tuition waiver up to a maximum of 50% of the cost of the Ross Vet school tuition. Questions relating to this policy should be directed to the Office of Student Finance.
TUITION REFUND POLICY FOR WITHDRAWALS
A withdrawal occurs when your enrollment is permanently discontinued or, in some cases, temporarily interrupted (see Note below). A withdrawal may be official (when you notify the Dean in writing) or unofficial (without written notification). The effective date of withdrawal is normally your last date of attendance.
If you withdraw, Ross Vet's handling of tuition and charges corresponds with federal loan eligibility regulations, which are based on the period attended.
If you are a new student and withdraw prior to the start of the first semester, no tuition charges are due.
If you are a continuing student and withdraw prior to the start of a semester, no tuition/charges are due.
If you withdraw during the first 60% of a semester, your Ross Vet school tuition and related charges are directly prorated based on the portion of the semester that has elapsed. Your student loan eligibility is recalculated, and you and Ross Vet are each proportionally responsible for returning “unearned” Federal Direct loans to lenders. In addition to the lender returns required by federal regulations, with the your authorization, Ross Vet returns any remaining credit balance to lenders, decreasing your loan debt for that semester.
If you withdraw after the first 60% of a semester, your full tuition/charges remain due.
For withdrawal during the first 60% of a semester, student loan eligibility is recalculated, and RUSVM and the student are each proportionally responsible for returning "unearned" Federal Direct loans to lenders. In addition to the lender returns required by federal regulations, with the student's authorization, RUSVM returns any remaining credit balance to lenders, which decreases the student's loan debt for that semester.
Note: Although a leave of absence may be authorized in limited circumstances, failure to return to the University from a leave of absence is considered a withdrawal as of the last date of attendance. Please note that a leave of absence and an academic leave of absence are two different statuses. Refer to the section on Academic Policies in the Student Handbook for a full explanation on an Academic Leave of Absence.
