refund & withdrawal policy

Withdrawal deadlines are strictly enforced by the Hamilton Holt School. Tuition refunds for withdrawals after the stated deadline will not be granted for:

  • change in job assignment (duties, hours, travel, etc.)
  • change in financial aid status and/or eligibility if not reported in writing to the Holt Office by the end of the first week of classes
  • lack of prerequisite knowledge or coursework
  • personal or family crisis or illness
  • relocation out of the area
  • temporary duty assignment or transfer by the military

Withdrawal exceptions are extremely rare and are granted only completing an Appeal Form for Review of Student Charges. All appeals are reviewed by the Fee Appeals Committee that is comprised of representatives from all programs of the College. The Committee meets once a month and will provide a written decision to those matters being appealed. The decision of the Fee Appeals Committee is final.

Withdrawal and refund deadlines will differ for courses offered on an intensive format. Generally, 50% for withdrawal before the second scheduled class meeting.

refund schedule

All withdrawals must be submitted in writing to the Holt School Office or Graduate Coordinator. Tuition credit is first applied to existing unpaid balance. No refunds after published dates.

payment deadline and information

Tuition deadline for Fall 2015 for all Holt programs except Counseling:

August 24 at 5:00 p.m. 

Deadline for Counseling only

August 31 at 5:00 p.m.

Please visit the Office of the Bursar to view information regarding payment options. 

Students are held personally and financially responsible for the course enrollments, tuition, and fees they initiate through the registration process. We expect full and timely payment for all registrations. Students who cannot pay full tuition through one or a combination of acceptable methods of payment on or before the deadline must withdraw in writing prior to the deadline in order to avoid additional financial penalties. Late payment penalties include an initial fee of $50, and $50 per month until the end of the term or the balance is paid in full. This will be applied to all payments received after the posted deadline. Please visit the Office of the Bursar for additional information.

late fee schedule

Beginning fall 2015, in addition to a Bursar's hold, accounts with a past due balance will be subject to a monthly late payment fee on the following scale:

Past Due Balance of $200 - $999.99 $75
Past Due Balance of $1,000 - $4,999.99 $125
Past Due Balance of $5,000 - $19,999.99 $200
Past Due Balance of $20,000 or greater 1% of Past Due Amount

Please visit the Bursar's website for additional information. 

Note: By registering, students agree to accept full responsibility for the payment of tuition and fees. If a payment is not fulfilled or returned for insufficient funds or no approval by credit, students also agree to pay all fees associated with collection of due funds, including collection costs and attorney's fees.

non attendence policy

The Holt School does not automatically withdraw students for unpaid balances, but reserves the right to do so if such students are registered for courses that have waiting lists.  In this case, the student will be withdrawn after the payment deadline, notified of the withdrawal in writing, and receive a full relevant tuition credit. Late payment fees will remain on the student account to cover incurred administrative time and costs.

payment by financial aid

Financial aid recipients who have received the Rollins award letters may defer all or part of their payment (depending on the award) until the aid becomes available. Deferment of tuition for financial aid applicants is an extension of the payment due date. It is NOT a guarantee of eligibility for financial aid. Students are ultimately responsible for the full cost of tuition and fees. The amount of financial aid that is reflected on the student account on the date of registration is what the Holt School will consider when reviewing payments. Students have the responsibility to determine and pay any remaining balance prior to the payment deadline in order to avoid additional late payment fees. Students who anticipate financial aid and subsequently learn that aid has been reduced, denied, or withdrawn must either pay the full tuition balance or complete a written request to be withdrawn without financial penalty by the end of the first week of classes in order to avoid being held financially responsible for their classes and late payment fees. The Holt School is not involved or aware of decisions regarding the status of student aid and does not automatically withdraw. The student has responsibility for this. There is important Information About Making Schedule Changes for Florida Bright Futures Recipients. 

payment by corporate sponsors

Some employers have a billing agreement with the Rollins College Office of the Bursar. Students attending under one of these agreements must have a signed, authorized form on file in the Bursar’s Office at the time of registration in order to defer tuition payment. If the original form is not on record at the time of registration, the student may register by paying 25% of tuition due plus fees.

tuition discounts

Alumni with Bachelor's or Master's Degrees, and current adjunct faculty in academic programs are eligible for a 20% tuition discount on undergraduate course tuition. Alumni with a MA in Counseling from Rollins College are also eligible for a 20% tuition discount on graduate counseling course tuition.  Proof of employment or graduation may be required in some instances.
