    General Refund Policy

    Students who withdraw during the semester may be eligible for refunds, depending upon the time of the withdrawal. Students must give written notification to the registrar of their decision to withdraw and complete the withdrawal procedures in order to be eligible for any refunds.

    Please refer to your school’s student handbook for specific information regarding refunds.

  • Late Payment Fees are accrued on a weekly basis beginning with the first business day following the payment deadline at the greater of 1% of the outstanding balance or $50. Unpaid fees from offices at the Claremont University Consortium (CUC), including the Student Health Center, Library, and Campus Safety are added to KGI student accounts and, also, are subject to accrue the late fee.

    Any unpaid balances may result in removal from registered classes and student systems/programs such as Sakai and Student Government activities. Furthermore, a hold will be placed on diplomas and registration until your outstanding balance is paid in full.

    To view the late fee policy and other information, review your school’s student handbook.
