2) Private Student Loan:

This loan is to help students who need additional funds to help meet their educational expenses. Many of our students use Discover , PNC Bank, Sallie Mae, or Wells Fargo. In most cases, the student applicant will need a creditworthy co-signer. The loan can be applied for online and the approval or disapproval will be communicated to the student instantly after the application is completed. Private loans cannot be greater than the cost of attendance minus all other estimated financial aid. All terms and conditions are set by the bank or lending institution. All private loan options should be carefully researched and considered.

Refund Policy

Excerpted from the 2016-2017 Undergraduate and Graduate Academic Catalogs.

Registration in the College is considered a contract binding the student for charges for the entire semester. However, it is the policy of Greensboro College to give partial refunds in the event students officially withdraw from the College. The term “refund” is defined as a “reduction” in assessed charges. Cash refunds are only available to those having paid accounts. If a student cannot attend Greensboro College for the semester or term for which he/she is registered, and he/she does not follow proper procedures for withdrawing (see Dismissal and Withdrawal Policies and Procedures), a fee equal to 10 percent in fall or spring semesters, or 50 percent in summer sessions, of the tuition that is due upon the end of the drop/add period will be charged to the student’s account.

Students who are removed from the residence halls at Greensboro College for disciplinary reasons will not be entitled to a refund.  

Students who officially completely withdraw of their own initiative from Greensboro College before the beginning of classes will receive a full refund of tuition, academic and student activity fees. Nonrefundable deposits and registration fees will not be refunded.  Students who arrive prior to the beginning of classes and then leave prior to the beginning of classes will be charged $45.00 per day for the Room and Board for the days they were on campus.  

The beginning of classes is defined as follows.

Day Classes – The first day on which day classes are scheduled to meet, regardless of when a particular class begins.

Evening and Weekend Classes – The date and time of the first scheduled class meeting.

After the beginning of classes, students who officially completely withdraw of their own initiative will have their tuition, room and board prorated according to the following schedule.

First day of class through the end of Drop/Add period 90% Adjustment
One to seven days past the end of Drop/Add period 75% Adjustment
Eight to 14 days past the end of the Drop/Add period 50% Adjustment
15 to 21 days past the end of the Drop/Add period 25% Adjustment
22 or more days past the end of the Drop/Add period 0% Adjustment

 

Fees other than tuition, room and board are not subject to proration.

Students may drop a Weekend II class (which begins in mid-semester) prior to the beginning of the course without financial penalty. After the course has begun, students who wish to withdraw from a Weekend II course will have their tuition charges prorated according to the following schedule:

First weekend of classes 90% Adjustment
Second weekend of classes    75% Adjustment
Third weekend of classes 25% Adjustment
After the third weekend  0% Adjustment

 

Students should be aware that withdrawal from Weekend II classes may result in an adjustment in the student’s financial aid award, including eligibility for the North Carolina Need-Based Scholarship.

For those students who withdraw and are receiving financial aid through Greensboro College, the refund policy is dictated by federal guidelines. The College must refund the programs from which the student received assistance based on the date of withdrawal and percentage of time enrolled. It is therefore imperative that the student follows proper withdrawal procedures to ensure that a fair and equitable refund calculation can be performed. Once the withdrawal date is established and adjustments have been made in the charges incurred based on the length of enrollment, the Financial Aid Office must reduce the student’s financial aid accordingly and reimburse the programs before any refund to the student can be made.

Military Tuition Assistance Refund Policy

Refund Policy for classes that meet in sessions of eight weeks through 15 weeks of duration will include the Military Tuition Assistance refunds. 

Military Tuition Assistance refunds will be paid directly to the Military Service, not to the Service member as follows:

  • Before the first day of the session in which the class is scheduled, 100% of the TA funds will be refunded.
  • If classes are cancelled, 100% of the TA will be refunded.
  • After the beginning of classes, students who officially completely withdraw of their own initiative will have their tuition prorated according to the following schedule:
    • First day of class through the end of drop/add    90% adjustment
    • One to three days past the end of drop/add period   75% adjustment
    • Four to seven days past the end of drop/add period   50% adjustment
    • Eight to Eleven days past the end of drop/add period  25% adjustment
    • Twelve or more days past the end of drop/add period  0% adjustment
