University Enrollment Policies and Procedures:

GENERAL TERMS

Each student is accepted with the understanding that he/she has registered for the entire course of study at the graduate level. The student agrees to report to Keiser University, located in Florida, and/or to log on online on or before the program starting date, and maintain regular attendance at the University during each term registered for and abide by all the Rules and Regulations of the University. The University reserves the right to dismiss any student for maintaining poor academic standing, excessive absences, failure to comply with the regulations of the University as stated in the current literature, or for non-payment of tuition and fees when due. A late charge of five (5) dollars is added to any invoice ten (10) days or more overdue. Students are liable for all late fees, reasonable attorney’s fees and all other costs and charges necessary for the collection of unpaid fees. Students must supply personal items, such as textbooks, pens, paper, and notebooks. Students are held responsible for all misuse and/or breakage of equipment in the University’s facilities.

GENERAL POLICY

University policies have been formulated in the best interest of students and the University. Changes in University policies are rarely made during a school year, since plans for each season are made well in advance. However, the University reserves the right to make changes in tuition, fees, refund policy, curricula or any phase of its programs, where, in the opinion of the administration, students and/or the University will benefit. Such changes may be made without further notice. The University also reserves the right to cancel any classes which do not have a minimum number of five students enrolled. Courses which are delayed are rescheduled within 16 weeks of the original date or the University will make a full refund of all monies paid to the University for them. After successful completion of the program, students receive their graduate degree from the University. Although Keiser University provides employment assistance, it cannot promise or guarantee employment.

ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES

Occasionally, students have concerns and/or problems that need to be addressed. Students can confidentially discuss their problems at any time with their instructors, the Student Services Department or anyone on staff at the University. Additionally, Campus Presidents maintain an opendoor policy to meet student needs. If the administration has to take disciplinary measures against a student, he/she may appeal the decision to the Grievance Committee, which is made up of impartial staff member, and a student representative. If a student dispute is litigated, and the student receives an unfavorable decision, the University will be entitled to any reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in the legal proceedings.

ARBITRATION

It is agreed that, in the event the parties to this agreement are unable to amicably resolve any dispute, claim and/or controversy arising out of or relating to this agreement, or if a claim is made by either against the other or any agent or affiliate of the other, the dispute, claim and/or controversy shall be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association under its Commercial Arbitration Rules. If this chosen form or method of arbitration is unavailable, or for any reason cannot be followed, a court having jurisdiction hereunder may appoint one or more arbitrators or an umpire pursuant to section 682.04 F.S. Each party shall have the right to be represented by an attorney at any arbitration proceeding. The expenses and fees of the arbitrator(s) incurred in the conduct of the arbitration shall be split evenly between the parties to the arbitration. However, if the University prevails in the arbitration proceeding, the University will be entitled to any reasonable attorney’s fees incurred in the defense of a student’s claim(s). Venue for any proceeding relating to arbitration of claims shall be in the county wherein the institution is located. This agreement cannot be modified except in writing by the parties.

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

In order to graduate from Keiser University with a graduate degree, students must (1) Successfully complete all requirements for graduation. A complete listing is found in the Keiser University catalog; (2) Complete all documentation, records and files as necessary; (3) Fulfill all financial obligations to the University.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY

Tuition and Fees Disclosure

Tuition is computed on the assumption that a student will remain throughout an academic year. Since a place in class has been reserved, tuition is only refunded in accordance with the University’s Withdrawal Policy. Students withdrawing from the University must comply with the proper clearance procedures as outlined in the catalog. Refunds and/or reductions in indebtedness are made solely at the option of the University for withdrawals necessitated by conditions beyond the student’s control, such as an emergency acceptable to Keiser University. Refunds and/or reductions in indebtedness are processed after all required approvals are documented on the Withdrawal Form. Students are obligated for all charges (tuition/ fees/books/supplies/ laptops) for the term and/or semester they are currently attending, plus any prior account balance. A semester equals two terms (16 weeks), with one term equaling eight (8) weeks of instruction. An administrative fee of $100.00 is charged when a student withdraws prior to the end of a term and/or semester in which he/she is enrolled. Students, who have withdrawn and wish to reenter, are charged a $150.00 reentry fee.

Return of Title IV Funds (R2T4)

A pro-rated portion of any Federal Tile IV funds received are returned to appropriate programs for students who withdraw prior to the completion of a term in the semester that is prior to reaching the 60% point of a semester. The formula for Return of Title IV Funds (Section 484B of the Higher Education Act) also specifies the order in which funds are to be returned to financial aid programs. The return of Title IV funds follows a specific order: (1) FFEL/Direct Stafford Unsubsidized Loan; (2) Subsidized Loan; (3) FFEL/Direct Grad Plus; (4) Other Title IV Program (Not FWS).

Cancellation/Withdrawal Calculation

Withdrawal at any time from the date of a student’s registration to the day before the first scheduled day of the semester: The University retains a Withdrawal Fee of $100 and the Application Fee of $50.00 (1) Withdrawal at any time during the first week of the semester and/or term: 90% refund of tuition only.
