Books and Supplies

Students are required to buy books and supplies. Students
who receive the Thaddeus Stevens Grant will have their
books loaned to them; students must return the books or pay
for the purchase of the books when their course or program
of study has been completed. If books are not returned, the
cost for the books will be charged to the student's account
and remaining unpaid balance will be referred to a collection
agency.
Textbooks are available at competitive prices through the
College's bookstore provider online or at the bookstore
location. Prices of books and supplies vary according to each
major.

Tools

When students are accepted into their majors, they are
expected to buy all required tools or supplies. A list of
required tools will be located on the College's website.
These purchases must be made prior to the beginning of
the fall semester and will be listed on the website under the
appropriate course of study for the current semester.
Students who receive the Thaddeus Stevens Grant will have
their tools loaned to them. Upon successful completion of
their first year of study, the College will award students with
these tools. Students who do not successfully complete their
first year of study must return the tools. If these tools are not
returned, the cost of the tools will be charged to the student's
account and any remaining unpaid balance will be referred to
a collection agency.

Refunds from College Termination

Students who wish to decline admission or who withdraw
from the College are required to notify the College 14 days
prior to the first day of classes to receive a 100% refund.
Students who notify the College in writing of their denial of
admission or who withdraw from the College fewer than 14
days before the first day of class but before the first day of
class will be charged 20% of their tuition and room charges
for that semester. Students who do not notify the College
in writing prior to the first day of classes of their denial of
admission or who withdraw from the College will be charged
50% of tuition and room charges for that semester.
In the event of withdrawal from classes prior to the
completion of the semester, tuition, room, and board charges
will be reduced according to the following refund policy:

Institutional Refund Policy

This policy applies to Tuition and Room charges:
Withdrawal Date
Up to two weeks prior to semester start date: ......................80%
Up to one week after semester start as a no show: .............50%

Student activity fee is not refundable.
Note: Federal regulations require that for students receiving
Title IV Financial Aid (Stafford Loans, unsubsidized loans,
PLUS Loans, and Federal Pell Grants) the institution must
calculate the percentage and amount of Title IV assistance
the student did not earn as of the student's official withdrawal
date. For students who did not notify the institution of the
intent to withdraw, the last recorded date of attendance will
be used.
Unearned funds must be returned to the appropriate financial
aid program by the institution or the student or both in the
following specified order: unsubsidized federal Stafford
Loans, subsidized federal Stafford Loans, unsubsidized
direct Stafford Loans (other than PLUS Loans), subsidized
direct Stafford Loans, Perkins Loans, federal PLUS Loans,
direct PLUS Loans, federal Pell Grants, and FSEO Grants. The
exact provisions of this regulation are available in the Office
of Financial Aid and Registration.
PHEAA State Grant refunds will be calculated according to
the institutional refund policy and appropriate amounts will
be returned to PHEAA.
The student is responsible for all claims of damage or loss
of school property. A student who is withdrawing from the
College must go to the Business Office and pay the outstanding
balance on his/her account to avoid late payment fees. The
College will refer all delinquent accounts to the Attorney
General's Office for collection.

Leave Policy

A leave is granted only one time. Students are permitted to
interrupt their program of study and return the following year
at the beginning of the semester in which they previously
withdrew.

Thaddeus Stevens Grant Students

Recommended students who qualify for the Thaddeus
Stevens Grant are eligible for only four semesters of the Grant
or six semesters for those students admitted to the oneyear pre-major program. Prior to completing a full semester,
students who are granted a leave of absence will not have
that semester count as one full semester.
However, eligibility for financial aid and the Stevens Grant
is determined on a yearly basis with respect to the current
admissions procedure. Therefore, students on leave will need
to provide the Office of Admissions with a letter stating their
intent to return with the required financial documentation
prior to the semester in which they wish to enroll.
