Withdrawal from College

Since every college has many expenses of a continuing nature associated with each student’s attendance, it is understood the student is registered for the entire semester and responsible for tuition and fees incurred. However, if a student withdraws from the College before the dates listed below, he/she will receive a tuition refund according to the schedule listed. The last day of class attendance, as indicated on the completed exit interview with the Center for Academic Advisement, is considered as the official date of withdrawal in all instances.

Students enrolled in off-campus programs through King’s College (i.e. Medical Technology, affiliated Study Abroad) will be subject to the withdrawal refund policy of the host institution.

Fall Semester

Rooms in the student residence halls are rented for the semester and there is no refund of room charges in case of withdrawal after classes have commenced. Refund of board fees is determined on a pro-rata basis throughout the semester.

With the exception of tuition and board, no refund is made on any other fees after classes have commenced.

The College endeavors to treat all students fairly and consistently in all cases of refunds; however, it is recognized that in rare instances individual circumstances may warrant exceptions from published policy. In these cases, the parent or student should write to the Vice President for Business Affairs, 133 North River St., Wilkes-Barre, PA 18711, detailing the reasons why special consideration should be given in their case. Appeals must be made in a timely manner.
