Institutional Refund Policy

Students who register but do not attend classes or who withdraw from the University for any reason after attending classes are entitled to a refund (according to the refund policy) whether they officially withdraw themselves or unofficially. If the student does not officially withdraw, the last day of attendance would be considered the withdrawal date. Students who withdraw officially must follow procedures set forth in this publication.


Procedure for official withdrawing

Students wishing to withdraw from the University can do so officially by notifying the office of student development via phone or via email. 

Unofficial withdrawal from the University: An unofficial withdrawal is when a student does not attend any classes and stops participating in any academic activities for 14 calendar days beyond the date they last attended classes.

Withdraw Date: A student’s withdrawal date is as follows:

  • the last date of academically-related activity provided on the Vargas portal attendance record;


  • the date the student informed JMVU of their intention to withdraw.


Students who officially withdraw from the University, in compliance with the procedures established in the University Catalog, will receive a refund depending on the time of the student withdrawal.

The semester tuition and fees refund for all diploma and degree programs, will be according to the table below:

All refunds hereunder shall be made by the University within thirty (30) days of the date that the University determines that the student is withdrawn. Student must claim refunds within one calendar year.

Students who are Title IV recipients will receive any refund due after the university has completed the Return to Title IV calculation.

Students who have received a University Scholarship (see Section on University Scholarship) and withdraw from the University, may be eligible for a refund on the monies paid to the University after the scholarship is applied. The same refund calculation policies apply. 

Policy Regarding Enrollment Agreement Cancellation
The University requires students who accept JMVU’s offer for admission to sign an enrollment agreement. The University's policy provides that students will have five (5) days within which to cancel the Enrollment Agreement. A student who cancels more than 5 calendar days after signing an enrollment agreement, but prior to beginning a course or program is entitled to a refund of all monies paid minus the non-refundable application fee.
