AUC’s tuition and refund policies in the event of withdrawal are consistent with U.S. federal student financial aid regulations and are based on the period attended:
If a new student withdraws prior to the start of the first semester, no tuition charges are due; however, the student’s acceptance deposit is not refunded.
If a continuing student withdraws prior to the start of a semester, no tuition charges are due for that semester.
If a student withdraws during the first 60 percent of a semester, tuition charges are directly prorated based on the portion of the semester that has elapsed. As semesters are normally 16 weeks in length, tuition is prorated for withdrawals during waeks 1 through 9.5.
If a student withdraws after the first 60 percent of a semester- that is, after completing week 10 - the full tuition charges remain due.
For withdrawal during the first 60 percent of a semester, student loan awards are federally required to recalculated, and AUC and the student are each proportionally responsible for returning “unearned” loan funds to lenders. In addition to the lender returns required by U.S. federal regulations, AUC may return any remaining credit balance to lenders, decreasing the student’s loan debt for that semester.
Health insurance fees will be refunded at a rate of 100% if a student officially withdraws within 31 days of the first day of an enrollment period. After that date, health insurance fees are non-refundable. University Apartment occupation fees and security deposit are refundable as described in the University Apartment Regulations and Occupancy Agreement.
Student Government Association (SGA) fees and the electronic resource fee are non-refundable. Once students are promoted to clinical sciences they will no longer be billed for SGA fees.
Students registering for clinical clerkship programs must cancel the students’ obligation for the registration period by providing notice of cancellation in writing within 45 business days prior to the start of the clerkship to receive 100% of tuition and refundable fees.
AUC will provide any refund due within 30 days from the date notice of withdrawal or an approved Academic Leave of Absence is timely received by AUC at 901 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Ste. 700, Coral Gables, FL 33134; fax: (305) 444-6791.
AUC Policy Regarding AUC Student Admitted to United States or Canada-Based Allopathic Medical School after Enrolling at AUC
Any student who is admitted to and enrolled in AUC for the first semester may be eligible for a full refund of the first-semester tuition if he or she is admitted to a United States-based or Canada-based allopathic medical school, provided that:
The starting semester for which the student is admitted to a United States-based or Canada-based allopathic medical school has not passed
The student has supplied the AUC Office of Student Finance with proof that the student has been admitted to a United States-based or Canada-based allopathic medical school.
Such proof is in the form of print or electronic copy of a formal letter of admission on official university letterhead.
The student has not begun his or her second semester at AUC.
Under the terms of this policy, AUC will refund 100% of the first-semester tuition. All other fees and deposits will be subject to the policy terms noted in the Withdrawal Refund Schedule. Students who withdraw from AUC after the start of the second semester will be subject to the same refund policies noted in the Withdrawal Refund Schedule. Students who withdraw from AUC during their clinical rotations will be subject to any applicable late cancellation fees for the scheduled rotations.
