A $1,500 non-refundable escrow deposit is required of accepted students to indicate the intent to matriculate in Presbyterian College Physician Assistant Studies Program. A student must remit the deposit by the deadline stated in his/her acceptance letter to retain his/her conditionally offered seat in the class.
All charges are due and payable on the schedule published by the Business Office. Circumstances which prevent a student from adhering to these dates should be discussed with the Office of Student Accounts. Students attending school under grants and/or loans should confer with the Office of Student Accounts concerning payment of fees. Students attending school under the G.I. Bill may discuss payment of school fees with the Office of Student Accounts. These students must also submit all required paperwork to the College’s VA Certifying Official. Failure to make proper payments, unless otherwise cleared with the Office of Student Accounts, will result in dismissal from the College. The College will not issue grades, grant degrees, or furnish academic transcripts until all financial obligations have been satisfied and all College property returned. Policies and procedures for leave of absence, short-term leave, and withdrawal can be found in the PA Student Bulletin.
Refunds for Withdrawal from All Classes – If withdrawal occurs during the first 60% of the semester, all aid that is not earned will be returned to the aid program involved. Refunds will be calculated on a per diem basis tied to the semester calendar. If a credit balance results from the adjustments to tuition, fees, room, board, and financial aid, a refund will be disbursed. Students who withdraw in the final 40% of the semester will receive no reduction in charges. An administrative fee of $100 will be charged on all withdrawals.
- If a student withdraws/drops a class, all books and equipment must be returned.
- $1,500 non-refundable acceptance fee will not be considered for a tuition refund.
The student’s account will be credited only after the proper withdrawal forms have been filed with the Registrar and the exit interview is completed. Students must contact the Registrar’s Office to officially withdraw from the school. Students who discontinue class attendance without officially completing the withdrawal procedure will be responsible for the full amount of applicable tuition and fees and all active courses graded with a grade of “F”.
Off-campus housing is available in the surrounding area. Students must arrange for off-campus housing individually. Room and board are not included in tuition since off- campus housing is not provided by Presbyterian College.
