If a learner withdraws or is separated from the Ithaca College MS-PAS program for any reason once the semester has started, a credit for tuition charged is given depending on the number of weeks attended. The full tuition refund policy is available here

Federal regulations governing Title IV financial aid programs require that the Office of Financial Aid determine the amount of the refund that must be paid back to the financial aid programs if the learner received aid for educational expenses. Therefore, some or all of a learner’s credit may be allocated to financial aid programs and not refunded to the learner. For more information please contact the Office of Student Financial Services at sfs@ithaca.edu.
