Tuition, Fee Schedule and Related Policies
10.1 Tuition for BS & MBA programs (2021-2022 Academic Year)
10.2 Standard Fees
Please note that all fees on this page are only for the current catalog year and may change in the future. All fees are reviewed annually and may be subject to increase.
10.3 Additional Fees
Students should be prepared to meet additional costs of their degree program. These can include travel, accommodations, food, textbooks, learning guides, course readers, conference call charges, dissertation editors, computer software and hardware, courses at other institutions, commercial database searches, professional meetings, conferences, and workshops. Learning consultants or other editors are the sole responsibility of the students using their services.
10.4 Application Fee Policy
All application fees are non-refundable. An application fee is required with every application. If an applicant is unable to fully complete the application form for the intended semester, he or she can request that the application review be extended until the next semester. Such a one-time, one-semester extension of application review will incur no additional application fee. If an applicant is rejected, the file will be closed by the Admissions Office and the applicant will be required to complete a new application and submit a new application fee if he or she still wishes to pursue an education at Virscend University.
10.5 Student’s Rights To Cancel Policy
The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a refund on tuition if it is requested on the first-class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. In such a case, the institution shall refund 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges, less a reasonable deposit or application fee not to exceed two hundred fifty dollars ($250). NOTE: If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of monies not paid from federal student financial aid program funds.
A notice of cancellation shall be in writing, and a withdrawal may be effectuated by the student's written notice to the school’s Admissions Office, 16490 Bake Pkwy, suite 100, Irvine, CA 92618 or by the student's conduct, including, but not necessarily limited to, a student's lack of attendance.
In addition, the school may withdraw a student from a course, if within the first two weeks of class the student has not reported to class nor communicated his intent to the instructor and admission office.
10.6 Refund Policy
A pro rata refund pursuant to section 94910(c) or 94920(d) or 94927 of the BPPE code shall be applied to students who have completed 60% of the clock hours of instruction in any given period of attendance. The amount refunded will be the total amount paid by the student for the academic semester minus the portion of the educational program that was provided. The calculation is as follows:
The amount owed equals the total amount paid for tuition minus the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days the student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
No refunds are due once the student has received more than 60% (9 weeks) of the clock hours of instruction in any given period of attendance. For purposes of determining a refund, a student shall be considered to have withdrawn from an educational program when he or she withdraws or is deemed withdrawn in accordance with the withdrawal policy.
If an institution has collected money from a student for transmittal documents in order to act on behalf of the student to pay a third party for a bond, library usage, or fees for a license, application, or examination and the institution has not paid the money to the third party at the time of the student's withdrawal or cancellation, then the institution shall refund the money to the student within 45 days of the student's withdrawal or cancellation.
This institution shall refund any credit balance on the student's account within 45 days after the date of the student's completion of, or withdrawal from, the educational program in which the student was enrolled.
