Cancellation and Refund Policy

Due to the limited number of spaces available in the program, if a student is accepted into the program, the school has made a commitment to the student to complete the program.  Such a commitment to the student necessarily prevents the school from filling that space occupied by the student with other qualified students.  Therefore, if a student withdraws or is dismissed for cause – midterm once the program has commenced – it will be impossible to fill that space committed.

A student applicant may cancel, by written notice, his enrollment at any time prior to the first class day of the session for which application was made.  When cancellation is requested under these circumstances, the school is required to refund all tuition paid by the student, less a maximum tuition fee of 15% of the stated costs of the course or program or $100.00 whichever is less.

Quarter, Semester, Trimester Refund Policy:

If a student enrollment status terminates or cancels for any reason, all refunds will be made according to the following refund schedule:

Three-Day Cancellation:  An applicant who provides written notice of cancellation within three (3) business days, excluding weekends and holidays, of execution of an enrollment agreement is entitled to a refund of all monies paid, excluding the $100 non-refundable registration fee.

After Three-Day Cancellation:  An applicant requesting cancellation more than three (3) days after

executing the enrollment agreement and making an initial payment, but prior to the first day of class is entitled to a refund of all monies paid, less a maximum tuition fee of 15% or $100.00 (whichever is less) of the stated cost of the course.  The After Three-Day Cancellation policy also coincides with the Three-Day Cancellation policy; hence the $100 non-refundable registration fee is still applicable.

The school has a tuition refund policy that stipulates the amount of tuition and fees that are refunded to a student who withdraws from all classes during a term.  This policy is published by GHC in the student handbook or catalog.  Refund deadlines are published in the student handbook.  The chart below shows the amount of tuition and fees returned to a student, depending upon when the student withdraws.  Students must immediately notify Student Services that they are withdrawing by following specific withdrawal procedures.

Minimum Terms for Tuition Payment

For those students who are not eligible or do not wish to participate in any of the Financial Aid programs available from the United States Department of Education, tuition must be paid in advance.  Payment arrangement as specified may be utilized.

Students whose Financial Aid is insufficient to cover the total cost of fees, tuition, and books must establish a satisfactory payment plan prior to starting class.

Current tuition rates will be charged for courses repeated, for any reason, to complete program.

A Payment Plan is available for each program.  Please see Business Office for more information.

Late Payment Penalty

Payment in full of the total balance due will avoid a late payment fee of $150.00.  One week after the due date the student may be assessed a $50.00 fee. Two weeks after the payment due date the student may be placed on financial suspension and/or have their studies interrupted. Student accounts must be paid in full by the established due dates for students to be eligible to register during the next registration period. Transcripts, diplomas, or other statements of record will be withheld and students will be ineligible to enroll and/or continue to be enrolled in future semesters until their obligations have been fulfilled. If an account is not paid in full by the end of the semester it will be referred to an outside collection agency and the matter will be reported to the Credit Bureau.

Payment and Registration Status

All registrations for a given semester are considered to be temporary and tentative, based on satisfactory academic progress and total satisfaction of all financial obligations to the school.  GHC will delay the future semester registration of any student if the student has a delinquent account balance from a prior semester. 

NOTE:  Students who find it necessary to drop all courses for which they are registered may do so by filing an official withdrawal form with the Registration Office.  Withdrawals filed with the Registration Office can be processed in person, by fax, or by certified mail.  Withdrawal forms are available in the Registrar’s office.

Payment Options

All payment must be in United States currency in person or by mail.

Remittance should be made payable to “GHC” and identified with the student name and social security number (SSN).

Payments returned by the bank are considered nonpayment and may result in cancellation of registration.  A $100.00 returned items charge will be assessed for returned items.  Late registration and/or late payment fees may apply.

Taxpayer Identification Numbers

GHC is required to collect a student’s social security number for various reasons:

  • Students must provide an SSN when they apply for financial aid
  • Documentation for state board of nursing licensure preparation
