Refunds

Students who drop a course or courses may be entitled to a full or partial refund of tuition charges. In order to be eligible for refund of tuition, the student must formally drop by completing and submitting a “Drop Form” for their program via the PAU Registrar’s portal.The amount of tuition that is refundable depends on the date the student formally drops courses. Students who withdraw from courses after the refund period are fully responsible for payment for the courses.The tuition refund schedule that indicates official drop/withdrawal dates is published in the Academic Calendar.

Estimated Cost of Attendance/ Budget

The Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of what an average student in your program can expect. The COA includes both direct costs (items billed directly by the school: tuition/ fees and/or health insurance) and indirect costs (associated expenses of attending school: books/ supplies, transportation, etc.). The COA is not what you have to pay, but rather is provided so that you can create a personal budget and determine how much financial aid is needed.
