Tuition Refund Policy
According to federal guidelines, refunds from financial aid cannot be issued until after the fourth week of school has been completed.
Tuition (less any deposits) for the 2022-23 academic year will be refunded according to the following percentages based on the date of the written withdrawal request. The date on which the Registrar is informed in writing will be considered the date of withdrawal either from the college or from a course. The college will grant tuition credit as follows:
If withdrawal date is: Percentage
Before school begins 100%
During the first two weeks 75%
During the third week 50%
During the fourth week 25%
If you are entitled to a refund due to an over-payment, you must complete a Student Refund Request Form. Once Student Financial Services receives your refund request your account will be reviewed and if you are due a refund, a check will be issued to you in the next refund period.
Housing and meal plan refunds will be processed as outlined in the housing contract.
Other important refund notes:
- Approved TAP awards cannot be refunded until the College has received the funds from NY State. Generally, there is a delay in funds that are received from NY State
- All college fees are non-refundable
- Deposits are non-refundable
The financial aid reflected on your bill is either authorized or memoed for the current semester. Although the financial aid listed has been used to reduce the current amount due, all financial aid is subject to change in order to comply with Federal and State financial aid regulations.
New York State Residents Only
If TAP is listed on your bill, it may be an estimate based on the information you submitted on your 2022-2023 FAFSA. If the amount differs from the amount listed on the award certificate received from the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation, adjust the amount on the bill, and submit a copy of the award certificate with the bottom portion of the bill and your payment.
Receiving an award certificate from the NYS Higher Education Services Corporation does not necessarily guarantee the remittance of funds to the College. Students who receive the award must be certified by the College to be full-time, matriculated, and in good academic standing.
Stafford, PLUS & Alternative Loans
Most Stafford and PLUS loan disbursements are now sent to the college through Electronic Funds Transfer. You will be notified by Student Financial Services when your loan disbursement is credited to your account.
If your loan cannot be disbursed through Electronic Funds Transfer, the student loan check will be mailed directly to the College. Student Financial Services will notify you in writing when your check is received.
Please note: The amount credited may be less than borrowed amount due to fees deducted by the lender.
For those students who have registered, all tuition and fees must be paid in full or assigned to a payment plan for the:
- Spring Semester no later than January 23, 2023
Students will not be permitted to register for upcoming semesters unless all indebtedness to the College is either paid or assigned to a payment plan and clearance has been received from Student Financial Services.
FORMS OF PAYMENT
Checks: Made payable to St. Thomas Aquinas College. There will be a $20 charge for any check returned for NSF. No check will be re-deposited. Should a returned check result in late payment, there will be an additional $50 late payment fee.
Credit Cards: The College accepts American Express, VISA, MasterCard, and Discover. When paying by mail, please complete and return the credit card information portion of your bill, including card number, expiration date, and authorized signature.
