Tuition Information

Total cost for the

Tuition:
Application Fee:
Registration Fee: $100
Technology Fee:
Textbooks: $2,500 (estimate)
Total Program Cost: $36,450

**Total program cost excludes the cost for the retake of failed courses and/or replacement textbooks or materials. University of the Potomac reserves the right to change the above costs, including tuition, at any time.

Payment:

Tuition and fees will be paid at the time of registration unless the student is eligible for financial aid and clearance has been given by the Financial Aid Administrator or other financial arrangements have been made with the Business Office. Students are responsible for any financial obligation incurred while attending University of the Potomac (the "University") regardless of any anticipated financial aid.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

Rejected Applicants: If an applicant for enrollment is rejected by the University, all monies paid to The University will be refunded.

Three-Day Cancellation: An applicant who provides written notice of cancellation within three days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and federal and state holidays) of signing an enrollment agreement, making their initial payment or first visiting the University, whichever is the latest act to occur, is entitled to a refund of all monies paid. No later than 30 days of receiving the notice of cancellation, the University shall provide the 100% refund.

Other Cancellations: A student has the option to withdraw from the University at any time by giving notice of their intent to terminate enrollment in writing. In the absence of the student giving written notification, the student is dismissed from the University after 14 consecutive calendar days from the last date of attendance, or upon the failure to return from an approved Leave of Absence.

For purposes of determining refunds, the number of days enrolled is calculated from the start date to the last date of attendance. The students withdrawal date is either the date the student notifies the University of their intent to withdraw, or the date the University determined the student was no longer attending, usually 14 calendar days after the date of last attendance. Class days missed due to absences are included. Time out of class due to an approved Leave of Absence, schedule conflict, termination and re-enrollment, and school closure is excluded.

When a student withdraws from a standard term-based program comprised of a series of modules, the University must determine whether a Return of Title IV Funds calculation is required and if so, the length of the period of enrollment or payment period, as applicable. The Return of Title IV Funds Policy of the U.S. Department of Education entitles recipients of Title IV aid to retain aid on pro-rata schedule up through completion of 60% of the semester. After the 60% point in the semester, the recipient is entitled to 100% of the scheduled aid. A student who terminates prior to the 60% point may be obligated to pay the University a portion of charges incurred and/or a repayment to the Title IV programs.

Institutional Refund Policy

Tuition is charged on a session basis. All fees are non refundable. The Institutional Refund Policy generally allows the University to earn 100% of the institutional charges from students who complete 60% or more of the semester. The student's withdrawal date is the date the institution determined the student was no longer attending. The institution may take up to 14 days from the last date of attendance to make the determination that the student was no longer attending.

Tuition Refund

Last date of attendance as percentage of the
payment period for which the student was obligated
Percentage of Tuition
obligated and paid to be returned
Less than 10% 100% refund
10% up to but not including 20% 80% refund

30% up to but not including 40% 40% refund
40% up to but not including 60% 20% refund

Refund will be sent back via the original sources of payment that the University received it from. If applicable, refunds to agencies, private loans, scholarships, and to the student will be made within 30 days of the date the student is determined to have withdrawn. Notification will be sent to the students of all refunds made.

Although the staff cannot advise students on when to withdraw from their program the students are encouraged to become familiar with the refund policies, make their own decisions and take the appropriate actions.

All other charges are non-refundable.

Arbitration Agreement

PLEASE READ AND INITIAL EACH ITEM BELOW

*1. Any dispute I may bring against University of the Potomac (the "University"), or any of its parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, or employees, without limitation, or which the University may bring against me, no matter how characterized, pleaded or styled, shall be resolved by binding arbitration, conducted by the American Arbitration Association, under its Consumer Rules, and decided by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the case pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, and under the laws of the state of Delaware. Any dispute over the interpretation, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement shall be decided by the Arbitrator, and not by a Court. I explicitly waive any right I may have to a jury trial, and understand that the decision of the arbitrator wil be binding, and not merely advisory.

* 2. Neither the University nor I shall file any lawsuit against the other in any court and agree that any suit filed in violation of this provision shall be promptly dismissed by the court in favor of arbitration. Both the University and I agree that the party enforcing arbitration shall be awarded costs and fees of compelling arbitration.

* 3. The costs of the arbitration filing fee, arbitrator's compensation, and facilities fees that exceed the applicable court filing fee will be paid by the University.

* 4. I agree that any dispute or claim I may bring shall be brought solely in my individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, representative proceeding, mass action or consolidated action.

* 5. Any remedy available from a court under the law shall be available in the arbitration.

6. To the extent I have outstanding federal student loan obligations incurred in connection with my enrollment at the University, any arbitration award providing monetary damages shall direct that those damages be first paid toward my student loan obligations.

* 7. I may, but need not, be represented by an attorney at arbitration.

Terms And Condition

Terms and Condition

Transcript Request Service

At the end of the application, you will be able to print and sign the completed Transcript Request Form(s), one for each school attended.

* I authorize University of the Potomac to request and receive a copy of my U.S. college and high school transcripts. Students applying for transfer credit are required to present an official transcript of grades earned. To be considered official, transcripts must be in a sealed envelope from the institution of origin and bear all appropriate institutional markings. Students should submit transcripts from all previous colleges/universities attended. The University must receive official transcripts within the first semester of a students attendance.

* I acknowledge that unofficial transcripts can be reviewed for transfer of credit if they indicate school name, course name, and grade received. However, if my official transcript showing potential transfer of credit is not received by University of the Potomac, I understand that I am subject to loss of transfer of credit from this source, which could affect my financial aid plan and the length of my program.

Transfer Credits

* I acknowledge that I have reviewed and understand the transfer credit policy in the catalog for the program to which I am applying.

High School or Equivalent

* Attestation of High School Graduation or Equivalency: I understand that high school graduation (or its equivalency) is an admissions requirement for University of the Potomac. I hereby certify that I am a high school graduate or I have completed education resulting in my obtaining certification equivalent to high school graduation (GED, home-school certificate, etc.)

Credit Transder to Another School

* I acknowledge that regardless of the institution involved, the acceptance of credits is at the discretion of the accepting institution and cannot be guaranteed. Upon request, University of the Potomac will provide information that may aid the student in receiving credits for work completed at University of the Potomac. University of the Potomac does not, in any way, imply or guarantee credits may transfer. It should not be assumed that credits will transfer to any other institution.

Financial Aid Code of Conduct
