It is the intent of James Rumsey Technical Institute (JRTI) to have a fair and equitable policy for the refund of tuition fees in the event that the class is cancelled or the student does not plan to attend. There is NO REFUND on textbooks. Students should only purchase textbooks after they have enrolled.

Refund for classes or programs cancelled by JRTI: If fees are collected in advance of the start date of the program, an immediate process begins to return 100 percent of the fees collected. All fees will be refunded within 45 days of the planned start date of the canceled program. No request from the student is required.

Refunds for students enrolled prior to visiting the institution

Students who have not visited JRTI campuses prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty before the first day of class.

Refunds, when due, shall be made within 45 days (1) of the last day of attendance if written notification of withdrawal has been provided to the institution by the student, or (2) from the date the institution terminates the student or determines withdrawal by the student. Refunds are made on a semester-basis only. Refunds, when due, do not require a request from the student.

Title IV Grants

Postsecondary students who withdraw from the program before completing 60 percent of any given semester must return a portion of the Title IV financial aid grants they received. The amount to be returned is based on the concept of “earned” and “unearned” federal financial aid. The percentage of enrollment time completed determines the percentage of earned aid. For example: if a student attends through the first 25 days of a 100-day term, the percentage of earned aid is 25 percent. The remaining 75 percent of the aid received is therefore unearned and must be returned to the federal financial aid programs.

  • There is NO REFUND on textbooks. Students should only purchase textbooks after they have been enrolled in the program.
  • Registration fees are nonrefundable.
  • All refunds will be rounded to the nearest penny.
  • Procedure to Identify Student Refunds

If the student provides written notification of withdrawal or the student is terminated by JRTI:
The Director or his/her designee notifies the Financial Aid Administrator and the Financial Aid Secretary that the student has made notification of withdrawal. The Financial Aid Secretary examines the student’s records to determine if the student is eligible to receive a refund. The Financial Aid Secretary fills out a requisition form for the refund. The requisition is approved by the Assistant Principal and given to the Executive Secretary. The Executive Secretary generates a Purchase Order for approval by the Director. Once the PO is approved, the Executive Secretary writes a check to the student for the amount of the refund. The Director and the Assistant Principal sign the check. The Financial Aid Secretary contacts the student to deliver the refund through pick-up or via US Mail.

If James Rumsey Technical Institute terminates a student or if written notification of intent to withdraw is not provided by the student:
The Instructor notifies the Assistant Principal that the student’s attendance, grades or behavior warrant termination. The Assistant Principal uses data provided to determine if termination is required. Once the determination is made, the Assistant Principal makes contact with the student to provide notification of termination. The Assistant Principal notifies the Director, Financial Aid Administrator and the Financial Aid Secretary that the student has been terminated. The Financial Aid Secretary examines the student’s records to determine if the student is eligible to receive a refund. The Financial Aid Secretary fills out a requisition form for the refund.
