Refund Policy

Students who wish to receive a refund must withdraw formally from the program with the ELPP Coordinator.  Refunds are not issued for courses individually dropped, as ELPP students must maintain full-time enrollment. 

The amount of refund is based on the date the student makes notification to the ELPP Program Coordinator of their intent to withdraw, not on whether the student attended classes or on how many classes the student attended.  Upon withdrawal from the program up to, but not including, the first day of the semester, as defined by the program calendar, 100% of the refundable semester charges will be cancelled;

  • 90% of semester charges will be cancelled during the first week of the semester,
  • 60% of semester charges will be cancelled during the second week of the semester,
  • 40% of semester charges will be cancelled during the third and fourth weeks of the semester,
  • No cancellation of charges after the fourth week of the semester.

Bill Due Dates

Bill notices will be sent to the student's Southern email for each semester; paper statements are not mailed out.  Payment arrangements must be established by the bill deadlines: 

  • Fall semester July 15
  • Spring semester December 15
  • Summer semester is due upon registration

In the event of registration after any bill due date has passed, payment is then due upon registration.
