Privacy of Student Records – Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
At Marymount California University, all academic records of students who enroll are kept in accordance with the provisions of the Family Educational rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended. Copies of this Act are available to students in the Library and the Academic Affairs Office, Student Development Services Office, and the Registrar’s Office during normal working hours.
The refund schedule applies to students who withdraw from enrollment at the University. Withdrawal dates for refunds are defined as the date a completed Withdrawal Form is received by the Registrar’s Office. The refund schedule assumes that all tuition and fees have been paid in full prior to withdrawal. Any balance due at the time of withdrawal will be deducted from the refund amount. If there is a balance owed after the refund has been applied, the student is responsible for the immediate payment of the balance due. Financial aid may be adjusted when a student withdraws from the University. After the financial aid adjustment is applied to the account, it may result in a balance due to the University. Any balance owed after applying financial aid adjustments are due and payable immediately. If a student withdraws from one or more courses, but does not withdraw completely from the University, no adjustment will be made to the student account. Students considering withdrawal from coursework should consult with their academic advisor.
All requests for refunds must be in writing and addressed to the Office of Business Services after the completed Withdrawal Form is submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
For the purposes of calculating the refund percentage, a week is defined as Monday through Friday. The first week of the semester will begin with Monday of the week that classes begin – irrespective of whether the first day of classes falls on a Monday – and the weeks will run continuously with no break or delay due to instructional vacation days. Withdrawals submitted after Friday of any week will be considered as being made during the following week. Students who withdraw after the 7th week of class are not eligible for a refund.Admission Refunds
