Withdrawal Adjustment Policy/Schedule

Students who withdraw from the College may be eligible for a reduction of Tuition, Room and Board, and fee charges. To be eligible for such an adjustment, the student must complete a College Withdrawal Form, which is available in the Office of the Registrar. The official date of withdrawal is the most recent date of academic activity which is provided by the student’s instructors to the Office of the Registrar. Mount Ida College adheres to the Higher Education Act of 1992, which requires institutions that participate in Title IV programs to have an equitable and fair refund policy.

Students who fail to withdraw following these procedures are considered to be ” in poor standing.”  This will jeopardize a student’s ability to take courses, transfer to other institutions, and receive grades and/or transcripts.

Any student who has an unpaid balance with the College will not be allowed a transcript nor a diploma until such time as all debt owed to the College has been paid in full.

If efforts by the Office of Student Financial Services to collect the monies owed are unsuccessful, the account may be placed with a collection agency, and if the delinquency persists, that account may be reported to a national credit bureau.  It is the policy of the College to pass on to the debtor all reasonable costs associated with collection of the debt through a collection agency.  If at any time the student believes information concerning payment delinquency is inaccurate, he/she should notify the Office of Student Financial Services at:  1-617-928-4750.
