REFUNDS


HTU’s refund policy is in compliance with the Amendments to Education  Law Section 5002, passed in July 1990 and with the Minimum Standards  and Criteria set by GNPEC.


Refunds for Withdrawal from ALL Classes


If a student withdraws from all classes after the first day of the  semester, he/she is entitled to a partial tuition refund depending on  the percentage of the semester that has passed since the first day of  the semester (see “Tuition Refund Schedule,” below).


Refund Approval Contingencies


Students who withdraw before the beginning of a semester or on the  first day of the semester will receive a refund of all monies paid, with  the exception of the non-refundable application fee. After the first  day of a semester, students are liable for

  • non-refundable registration fee
  • the cost of any textbooks or supplies accepted
  • tuition liability as of the student’s last date of attendance at the university (see “Tuition Refund Schedule,” below).


To be eligible for a refund, written notification of withdrawal must  be submitted to the Office of Business Affairs. In addition to the  stated policy herein, Hudson Taylor University will review a student’s  extenuating circumstances (e.g. injury, prolonged illness, death, or  other circumstances which prohibit completion of the semester or program  of study), and, at its sole discretion, may grant a tuition refund beyond the amount prescribed in this section.


Tuition Refund Schedule


The amount of a tuition refund is determined on a pro-rata basis up  to 50% completion of the semester days to the student’s withdrawal date  or the last date of attendance by the student, whichever is later. If a  student withdraws after completing 50% of the semester, no Tuition  Refund shall be given. This Tuition Refund policy applies to full  withdrawals only; no partial withdrawals will be applicable to Tuition  Refunds. Hudson Taylor University shall pay the refund within thirty  days of the date of withdrawal.


SCHOLARSHIPS  


Hudson Taylor University may grant scholarships to students based  upon their academic records, attendance records, service to the  community, and commitment to the welfare of fellow students and Hudson  Taylor community. Recipients of scholarships are selected either by a  student’s application, or recommendation by the faculty or  administration. The Scholarship Committee is comprised of the President,  Dean of Academics, Director of Admissions and Dean of Students. The  decision to grant a scholarship is made by consensus or unanimous  approval of all members of the Committee. The Committee considers four  factors in making a scholarship award decision:


  • Academic record
  • Attendance record
  • Service to the community
  • Personal attributes or leadership characteristics.


Hudson Taylor University does not currently participate in Title IV  funding, nor are there any private endowments that fund scholarships.  HTU does not offer hardship- or need-based scholarships. Scholarships  are not awarded as cash, but as credit toward tuition. Scholarships are  ONLY awarded toward tuition; fees are not included and must be paid by  the student. Students may apply for these scholarships in the Office of  the Registrar. Violation of the Attendance policy and/or a negative  change in Academic standing such as being placed on Warning or Probation  status will result in the cancellation of a scholarship. Currently,  there are two scholarships available to those who meet the criteria:


  • Academic Achievement Scholarship


The recipient must be a full-time student with at least two semesters  of academic record at HTU. The student’s overall GPA must be at least  3.75 out of 4.0. A recommendation letter from a faculty member is  required. The selection and granting of the scholarship is made each  semester and the recipients are awarded $500.00 toward their tuition. No  cash award is made.


  • President’s Scholarship


The recipient of the President’s Scholarship must exhibit  extraordinary commitment to leadership in his or her respective  community and must demonstrate selfless dedication to the needs of the  Hudson Taylor community, and to society, nation, and world. The  application for this Scholarship must be accompanied by a personal essay  and recommendation letter from a member of HTU faculty or  administration. The selection and granting of the Scholarship is made by  the Committee with the final determination of the amount of the grant  by the President. It can range from a $500.00 per semester tuition  credit to full coverage of all costs of education while attending Hudson  Taylor University.

Students who wish to apply for one of the scholarships above may  obtain a Scholarship Request Form from the Office of the Registrar.


Financial Counseling


While HTU does not participate in any federal or state financial aid  program, the administration recognizes that students may have questions  or concerns regarding their finances and ability to fund their  education. HTU therefore maintains a policy of informal financial  counseling, and will help students insofar as possible with making  financial decisions. Students may contact the Dean of Students for more  information.
