  • Students and their billing parties will be responsible for payment of all costs, and agree to pay all fees and charges established by the college, including reimbursement of any collection agency fees, if applicable. Such fees may be based on a percentage of the amount owed to the college, up to a maximum of 24%.

  • The college will assess a $25 fee for any check or ACH returned by the bank and reserves the right to invoke the laws of the state of Maryland governing bad checks.


Refund Policy

  • Credit balances are automatically refunded if required under Title IV (federal aid exceeds allowable billing charges) or a student has graduated or withdrawn from the college. All other credit balances can be refunded if a written or website request has been received by the Billing office and the class drop deadline has passed for the semester that the credit balance occurred.


Students Withdrawing from College

  • An adjustment of semester charges may apply to students who withdraw from all courses of their own accord, based on the refund periods below and the date the official notification of withdrawal form is received in the Registrar’s Office.
  • Federal Aid will be adjusted in accordance with the Federal Return to Title IV calculation based on days of attendance as a percentage of total days in the semester up until 60%. For example, if the Return to Title IV calculation calculates that the student earned 20% of their federal aid based on the length of time spent in school the aid would be adjusted to 20%. No adjustments to federal aid will be made once 60% of the semester has passed.
