CANCELLATION INFORMATION FOR NONMATRICULATED STUDENTS
To withdraw from a credit or noncredit Division of Continuing Education course you must notify the Registrar's Office, in writing, of your intention to withdraw. You may do so: by e-mailing your withdrawal to dropaddce@sva.edu; by sending written notification via mail or fax; or by completing a withdrawal form, in person, at the Registrar's Office. The office is located at 205 East 23rd Street. Failure to complete a course does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does notification to the instructor, nor does lack of attendance, nor does dissatisfaction with a course. Refunds are computed from the day on which written notice of withdrawal is received. The postmark will be considered the date of withdrawal for refunds requested by mail. All refunds for payment made by American Express, Discover, JCB, MasterCard or Visa, will be credited to the appropriate credit card account. Payment made by check or money order will be refunded by check, payable to the registrant. Processing of refunds takes approximately four weeks.

REFUNDS FOR 10 OR MORE SESSIONS
If written notice of withdrawal is received by the Registrar's Office:

  • Before the first class session, the student will receive a 100% tuition refund, including any lab, equipment or model fee.
  • Before the second class session, the student will receive a 90% tuition refund, including any lab, equipment or model fee.
  • Before the third class session, the student will receive an 80% tuition refund, including any lab, equipment or model fee.

THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS AFTER THE START OF THE THIRD CLASS SESSION.


REFUNDS FOR 5 TO 9 SESSIONS
If written notice of withdrawal is received by the Registrar's Office:

  • Before the first class session, the student will receive a 100% tuition refund, including any lab, equipment or model fee.
  • Before the second class session, the student will receive an 80% tuition refund, including any lab, equipment or model fee.

THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS AFTER THE START OF THE SECOND CLASS SESSION.

REFUNDS FOR 1 TO 5 SESSION INTENSIVE AND WEEKLONG COURSES
If written notice of withdrawal is received by the Registrar's Office prior to the first class session, the student will receive a 100% tuition refund, including any lab, equipment or model fee.

THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS AFTER THE START OF THE FIRST CLASS SESSION.

NONREFUNDABLE EXPENSES
From time to time, the School of Visual Arts may find it necessary to cancel a course or workshop, or make changes to scheduling or faculty for a course or workshop. If this occurs, the School of Visual Arts will attempt to give notice to those students who are registered for the affected course or workshop, to the e-mail address or telephone number provided by the student in her or his registration materials. It is the student's responsibility to keep the College advised of a current mailing address, e-mail address and telephone number at which he or she may be contacted. If a course or workshop is canceled, or the schedule or faculty for a course or workshop are changed and as a result of the change the student no longer wishes to take the course or workshop, the School of Visual Arts will reimburse to the student the tuition and course fees for that course or workshop within the guidelines published in this bulletin, but will not be responsible or liable for any other expenses that the student may have incurred, including but not limited to transportation and housing costs and the purchase of materials and supplies.
