Unofficial Withdrawal is when the student does not notify the school of their intention to withdraw and just stops attending. The school considers the withdrawal complete when the student has reached their maximum number of missed instructional hours or 2 instructional days of no call no show, whichever comes first and has had no further contact with the school. For purposes of determining the earned and unearned portion of Title IV aid, per Department of Education, LWT will consider last date of attendance as the withdrawal date. For all other funding, the school will consider the withdrawal date when the missed instructional days have maxed or the instructional day after the 2nd instructional day of no call no show. The unofficial withdrawal date must be identified within 14 days from the student’s last date of attendance.
If any student should withdraw at any time for any of the following reasons the tuition shall be fully refunded:
- Military obligations
- Death of the student or death in the immediate family
- Illness of such duration and severity that completion of the term is precluded
- Exceptional circumstances
All refunds will be mailed to the student’s address on file within 30 days of the date the school determined the student withdrew/terminated.
Any return of Title IV aid is to be returned within 45 days of the withdrawal date. This calculation will be completed by the Financial Aid Administrator.
Full refunds shall be made to the student if a course is officially cancelled by the school or if a student is denied admission to a course by the school.
