Tuition Refund Policy


To provide students with the information needed to obtain a refund for tuition and fee payments made at the time of course withdrawal.


For refund consideration, a student must indicate in writing (an email from the student’s School of Nursing account is acceptable) the course they are withdrawing from. The course withdrawal request is sent to the School of Nursing Program Coordinator and Coordinator of Student Services. The refund amount is determined by the date on the course withdrawal request or email.

Listed below is the Refund Policy for Holy Name School of Nursing students based on the withdrawal time period:

School of Nursing Tuition Refund Policy by Semester

Withdrawal before the first day of class100%*
Withdrawal within the first two weeks75%
Withdrawal within the third week50%
Withdrawal within the fourth week25%
Withdrawal after the end of the fourth week0%
Withdrawal for recipients of Title IV funds are on a pro-rated basis up to60% completion**

Note: There is a nonrefundable $300 enrollment fee paid upon acceptance of seat in NRS 101. This fee is applied to NRS 101 tuition and fees.

*Minus the cost of the school issued tablet device unless the tablet is returned unopened in the original box.

If a student withdraws from the program, no financial aid monies will be refunded to the student. These monies are to be used for educational expenses only, and will be returned to SFA programs. The Financial Aid Office will notify the guarantee agencies of the last day of attendance of the student borrowers.

Title IV Refund Policy

The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw, drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term. The federal Title IV financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations.

**If a student leaves the school prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term, the financial aid office recalculates eligibility for Title IV funds. Recalculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV funds formula: Percentage of payment period or term completed = the number of days completed up to the withdrawal date divided by the total days in the payment period or term. (Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This percentage is also the percentage of earned aid.

Unofficial Withdrawals

If a student does not officially withdraw from all classes but fails to earn a passing grade in at least one course, federal aid regulations require that we assume the student has "unofficially withdrawn," unless it can be documented that the student completed the enrollment period. Unofficial withdrawals require a Title IV refund calculation at the midpoint of the enrollment period. The reduction of federal aid will create a balance due to the school that must be repaid.

Receipt of Financial Aid Funds

Outstanding tuition and fee balances owed to the School will be deducted first from any Financial Aid disbursements made on behalf of the student. If a student is owed a cash disbursement "refund" after applicable deductions, the cash disbursement “refund” payment will be made as follows:

  • For Federal PELL Grants and Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loans: If a student is due a refund against a federal Pell grant or federal Direct Loan disbursement, a check will be issued to the student for that amount no sooner than the end of the semester as these funds are to be issued for educational expenses. The student will be notified to pick up the check in the Registrar's office. The student must sign for receipt of the check.
  • For Alternative or Private Loans: Alternative or Private Loan checks are made co-payable to both the student and the school. The student will be notified to come to the Registrar's office to endorse the check and receive a receipt for that check from the Registrar. The check is then deposited to the school's account with the hospital's Finance Officer. A Holy Name Medical Center check will be drawn payable to the student for the "refund" amount and will be available in about 14 to 21 days. The student will be notified to pick up the check in the Registrar's office.
