Any student wishing to withdraw from all courses prior to the start of the term should notify the Office of Records and Registration immediately. Arizona Summit Law School will refund tuition and fees as described below.

Non-Title IV Funds:
Any student who pays for tuition and fees using non-Title IV funds only (i.e., cash, credit card) and does not take out any financial aid will be subject to the following refund policy.

Refund Schedule Table for Non-Title IV Funds Only:

Withdrawal Date Refund
0-3 Calendar Days 100%
4+ Calendar Days 0%
*4-30 Calendar Days 20%

*This only pertains to students who are with non-Title IV funds and not using any Title IV funds in the form of student loans. In certain circumstances, a refund of 20% of tuition and fees may be granted if the student withdraws between 4 to 30 calendar days from the start of the term. The following are the only circumstances in which a refund will be considered:

  • The student has an incapacitating illness of such duration and severity that the completion of the term is impossible.  Confirmation by a physician must be submitted in writing.
  • The student is called to military duty.
  • The student passes away or a member of the student’s immediate family (i.e., parent, spouse, child, or sibling) passes away.

Combined Use of Title IV and Non-Title IV Funds Only:
If a student withdraws from all classes within 0-3 calendar days of the start of the term then the tuition and fees will be removed from the student’s account and all Title IV funds will be returned to Title IV programs.  If the student received a living stipend (i.e., money in excess of tuition and fees) the student is required to return 100% of those funds back to SummitLaw as those funds are required to be returned to Title IV programs. If the student does not return these funds to SummitLaw in order to be returned to Title IV programs, then a hold will be placed on the student’s account until paid in full.  This hold will prevent the student from registering for future terms, requesting transcripts, graduating, and using other student services.

If a student withdraws 4+ calendar days from the start of the term or on or before 60% of the term has been completed, then federal law requires that a calculated percentage of all Title IV funds disbursed to the student be returned to Title IV programs.

The return of those Title IV funds as calculated by federal law will be returned to Title IV programs in the following order:

  1. Unsubsidized Federal Student Loans
  2. Other Assistance by Title IV (i.e., Graduate PLUS Loan)
  3. Other Federal, State, Private or Institutional Assistance

The return of Title IV funds to Title IV programs will create a balance on the student’s account representing the tuition and fees that still need to be paid to Arizona Summit Law School in order to bring the student’s account to a zero balance. If the student does not pay this balance in full, a hold will be placed on the student’s account. This hold will prevent the student from registering for future terms, requesting transcripts, graduating, and using other student services.
