Policy Statement

FIT shall refund student tuition and fees if notified of a class change, or dropped classes, within an appropriate period of time. Courses dropped prior to the first day of the semester will have 100% of the tuition and fees canceled. Courses dropped on or after the first day of the semester are subject to the refund schedules outlined in this policy, which govern the prorated cancellation of semester tuition charges in cases of program adjustment or withdrawal. Students with extenuating and documentable circumstances may submit an appeal to be considered for additional tuition refund pursuant to the procedures in this policy. This policy does not apply to non-credit courses.
