Refund Policy

All students are guaranteed that tuition at the time of registration will not increase as long as they are actively and continuously enrolled in a program. If a student cancels within 3 calendar days after midnight of the day the student signs the Enrollment Agreement (Full Refund Period), the student will receive a FULL refund with NO further obligation.

The effective date of official withdrawal from the university is the last day of recorded attendance. The student is expected to notify the registrar in writing prior to or upon the date of complete withdrawal.

The University further guarantees that students who wish to withdraw will have all money due refunded within in the parameters of the refund policy. The University assesses no administrative and/or withdrawal fee of a student who withdraws. The University of Atlanta uses the following criteria to calculate refunds:

  • Refunds are made in full to the student within thirty (30) days of the date of withdrawal
  • The applicant requesting cancellation more than three (3) business days after signing the contract or the student completing no more than five (5) percent of the instructional time is refunded no less than ninety-five percent of tuition;
  • The student completing more than five (5) percent but no more than ten (10) percent of instructional time is refunded no less than ninety (90) percent of tuition;
  • The student completing more than ten (10) percent but no more than twenty-five (25) percent of instructional time is refunded no less than seventy-five (75) percent of tuition;
  • The student completing more than twenty-five (25) percent but no more than fifty (50) percent of instructional time is refunded no less than fifty (50) percent of tuition;
  • The student completing more than fifty (50) percent of instructional time is informed that the institution is not required to issue a refund.

The University of Atlanta has adopted a policy for addressing extenuating circumstances such as prolonged illness or death, or other circumstances which prohibit completion of the course or program of study; that establishes a process for determining a settlement which is reasonable and fair to the student and the University.

If the University of Atlanta cancels or changes a program of study or course (time or location) in such a way that a student who has started the program or course is unable to continue:

  • Makes arrangements in a timely manner to accommodate the needs of each student enrolled in the course;
  • Refunds all money paid by the student for the program of study or course if alternative arrangements determined by NPEC to be equitable to both the institution and the student are not possible.

Message from the Administrative Board

To all current and prospective students:

As part of our efforts to combat fraudulent activities perpetrated against the University of Atlanta and its student body, please be advised of the following:

1. The UofA only uses official channels in all communications with students. As such, we will never phone you except in an emergency situation and even then, by prior arrangement. The UofA does not utilize social media of any description to contact its students. Specifically, we do not use media such as Whatsapp, IMO or any other SMS platform to contact students.

2. The Uofa will never resort to calling you to demand payment for your program of study nor would we harass you in any way for any reason

3. The UofA encourages all students to be ware of fraudulent activities perpetrated by certain individuals who are in no way connected with us but who engage in criminal activities in attempts to defraud our students.

4. For your sake, please, do not send money through any means, to anyone that claims to be from the UofA. You should only send money following an official notification and as agreed between you and the UofA for your program.

5. UofA is currently working hard to be fully accredited once again with the relevant authorities. Any calls or communications from any one claiming or soliciting your transfer to a different university for the purposes of accreditation or any other purpose is fraudulent and should not be entertained. If you receive such calls, please, hang up or ask the caller to send an official email. If you do stay with the caller, do so long enough to obtain basic information from them, then, hang up and dial our fraud hotline to report it and verify the authenticity of the call

6. Should you find yourself at the receiving end of any suspicious activity, please, do not become a victim. Instead, hang up and dial the Chamblee Police station or report the matter to a special Crime Hotline at the UofA. The number is 630 800 2139.

Remember, we all have a duty to protect ourselves. Do not become a victim. Do not allow criminal activities to flourish at your expense. The UofA takes all such activities serious and will take steps to prosecute the perpetrators to the fullest extent of the law.

Stay informed. Stay alert. Stay safe.
