For payment options, see: http://www.park.edu/online/paymentinfo.asp
The financial assistance award for each term/semester (excluding the Stafford, Unsubsidized, and Parent loans lender origination fee) may be applied toward the total charges if all required materials have been submitted to Student Financial Services. Park University will permit students to apply up to 50% of their work study toward charges. Any remaining balance due is payable on or before registration day.
A student will not be allowed to re-enroll unless all debts are settled in the Accounting Office. Transcripts are not released until debts are paid.
Additional financial alternatives are available from the Student Accounts Coordinator in the Accounting Office.
if financial assistance results in a credit balance at registration, the balance will be refunded to the student approximately 14 working days after the beginning of the semester or after the release of financial aid to the Accounting Office, whichever is later.
Non-repayable gift awards (other than employment) are directly credited against charges after add/drop ends each semester if all paperwork is completed. For example, a valid Student Aid Report (SAR) must be on file for the Federal Pell Grant to be credited to an account; Federal Perkins Loans require a signed promissory note to be credited to the student's account. Student employment awards are never directly credited against charges. State grants are credited to the student's account when checks from the state are received by Park University.
Financial assistance may be awarded to full and part-time students who qualify. With the exception of Federal Pell Grants and Federal loans, resources are generally exhausted by the higher needs of full-time students. Reduction from full-time to part-time status may result in a decrease in financial assistance.
Full-time class load is six credit hours for an eight or nine-week accelerated term, or 12 credit hours or more in a semester program. A student may enroll in no more than six (6) hours per term in an accelerated program without prior approval from the Director of his/her respective program or 18 credit hours per semester in the traditional program without prior approval from the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
A student may audit courses (take for no credit or grade) by paying one-half the tuition for the course and the full course fee if applicable.
Undergraduate students 55 years of age or older may receive a 10% tuition
discount on credit bearing Parkville Daytime Campus Center courses only.
Undergraduate students 55 years of age or older may audit (for no credit)
Parkville Daytime courses without tuition costs. Individual course fees may
The first eight calendar days of a semester/term constitutes the Registration Adjustment Period. Within this time, the student will be permitted to exchange classes without financial penalty. For any adjustment other than even exchange, the student will be responsible for charges associated with the Registration Adjustment as detailed in the Refund Policy section (page 21-22). The adding or dropping of a class must be done by the student in the Park representative's office. Courses may not be added or dropped by telephone. A student using Veteran's Administration educational benefits may drop a course without penalty by the VA during the Registration Adjustment Period.
Park reserves the right to withdraw a student from a class(es) if the student does not meet his/her financial obligation or fails to attend classes. Any student failing to attend a class(es) for two consecutive weeks, without approved excuse, will be administratively withdrawn and notified by mail that a grade of "F" will be recorded. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands including temporary duty.
There are two types of withdrawal, official and administrative. An official withdrawal begins when the student initiates the withdrawal process. Refunds of tuition are based on this date. If a student fails to initiate the withdrawal process, and is withdrawn for nonattendance, this is an administrative withdrawal. In this case, refunds of tuition will be based on the last date of attendance, if known, or the mid-point of the semester or term.
Students must officially withdraw from a class(es) no later than two-thirds of the way through the term in order to receive a "W." If a student does not officially withdraw by this time, a grade of "F" will be recorded.
In order to "officially" withdraw: Students enrolled through the traditional 16-week program must initiate a total withdrawal from all classes and/or residence halls in the Office of the Registrar before any academic withdrawal can be made. Students enrolled in an accelerated 8 or 9 week program must initiate their withdrawal with the appropriate site administrator. Students continuing enrollment but wishing to withdraw from an individual class must do so at their home site. Withdrawals by telephone will not be accepted.
When a student withdraws from all classes in an enrollment period, and that student has received federal financial assistance, federal regulations require that calculation be performed to determine if any federal funds must be returned. This is referred to as a Returned to Title IV calculation. If it is determined that funds need to be returned, they will be returned in the following order:
A school must return Title IV funds to the programs from which the student received aid during the payment period or period of enrollment as applicable, in the following order, up to the net amount disbursed from each source:
- Unsubsidized Direct Stafford loans (other than PLUS loans
- Subsidized Direct Stafford loans
- Federal Perkins loans
- Federal PLUS loans
- Direct PLUS loans
- Federal Pell Grants for which a Return is required
- Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) for which a return of funds is required
- Federal TEACH Grants for which a Return is required
- Iraq and Afghanistan Service Grant for which a Return is required.
A student may request a Leave of Absence from all courses in order to avoid an unofficial withdrawal if he/she needs to be absent for more than two consecutive weeks of class(es). The formal institutional guidelines for this procedure are:
- Students must request the leave of absence in writing.
- Documentation supporting the request should be submitted concurrently.
- The written request and documentation should be sent to the Registrar's Office or to the appropriate Site Administrator.
- All faculty members concerned will be provided the requested materials for their review. This is necessary so that any potential problems associated with grading or required assignments can be dealt with.
- Faculty members will respond, in writing, to the Registrar concerning their agreement to the terms of the leave of absence.
- In addition to the faculty, the appropriate Associate Deans or Site Administrator will be provided all materials pertaining to the leave request.
- If all parties agree to the terms of the leave, the leave may be granted.
- Copies of the approved leave request form will be forwarded to the following individuals:
Vice President for Academic Affairs Controller
Vice President for Distance Learning Faculty
Vice President for Enrollment Management Site Administrator
- The student and faculty must agree, in writing, on the nature of the coursework that must be completed in order to successfully receive credit for the class.
- If a leave of absence terminates during a subsequent semester or term there can be no enrollment in that semester or term.
- A student may be granted a leave of absence in any 12-month period and it may not exceed 180 days. The institution will not place additional charges on the student for any period covered by an "approved" leave of absence. An approved leave of absence will not affect a student's in-school status for the purposes of deferring Federal loans.
- If a student does not return from a approved leave of absence, the student's withdrawal date and the beginning of the student's grace period for Federal student loans, is the date the student BEGAN the leave of absence. This may exhaust some or all of the student's grace period for federal student loans, putting them into repayment status.
