The dates to drop a program with a refund are established for each term and published on the Elevate College website. Please check the dates carefully because after these dates, it is considered a withdrawal. Refunds will not be given after the deadlines. Students who withdraw from a course will not be entitled to a refund.

Prior to orientation, a refund of the tuition paid is available for withdrawal of enrollment, minus a $150 administrative fee. During or after orientation there is no refund of tuition.
