Refund Policy

A student who submits a semester registration form, tuition, and fees and finds it necessary to withdraw writes a letter notifying the Dean of Students. A student may not withdraw in good standing or graduate until all obligations to BGSP-NJ are paid in full.

The School considers the date of withdrawal to be the date such written notification is received by the Dean or Director.  Absence from class does not reduce financial obligation or guarantee that a final grade will not be recorded.

The refund policy schedule is different from the extended payment plan and federal student loan schedules. Therefore, receiving financial aid or making tuition payments according to extended payment plan deadlines does not ensure that a balance will not still be due if a student drops out. “All-school” fees, such as application and registration fees, are nonrefundable.  The tuition refund policy schedule follows:

Approved drop in writing before 1st day of class100% refund
Approved drop in writing before 2nd class meeting75% refund
Approved drop in writing before 3rd class meeting50% refund
Approved drop in writing before 4th class meeting20% refund
Drop on or after 4th class meetingNo refund
