Students can request transcript for transferring credits earned in Vine University. They can visit and get counseling for transferring. The transcript will be issued to the student or the institution the students desired to transfer in. There is a fee for issuing transcripts as described above.

The fee must accompany the transcript request. The fee is charged for the research of student records and is not refundable when a transcript is withheld. A transcript will not be issued to, or on behalf of any individual who has a past due financial obligation to the institution until such obligation has been cleared. Other fees are not refundable once the request or the work has been done.

Personal Checks

All personal checks submitted for any payment to the University for any charge or payment will have your student ID number written on them. If you prefer not to have your ID number written on your check, please submit your payment by cashier’s check, money order or when appropriate (other than “mail-in” payments) in cash. University staff will write student ID numbers on checks where a student has not already done so.

Refunds-Overpayment

Payments to student accounts which result in a credit balance will be refunded upon request, or in accordance with cash management regulations as required by federal regulations for students having federal aid. Requests for adjustments to charges must be made within four months from the date of the student’s statement on which the charge first appears.

 

REFUND POLICY

Tuition refunds are made for withdrawal from a course when notification of withdrawal is filed to the registrar. Students may withdraw from a course and receive a full refund anytime prior to the beginning of the course or through the second week. The date that the official Add/Drop Form is received in the Registrar’s office determines the date of withdrawal. Failure to attend class is not regarded as withdrawal. Students failing to properly withdraw from a course do not normally receive a refund.

 

Fall/Spring Semester

The Full Refund is available within the first two weeks of classes.

After the third week of classes Tuition refunds are pro–rated as of end of week in which student withdraws.

The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program(total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.

Withdrawals after ninth week of classes: Tuition No refund.

 

STUDENT TUITION RECOVERY FUND

California state law requires that upon enrollment a fee shall be assessed in relation to the cost of tuition (education Code 94343). These fees support the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF), established by the California Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of an untimely school closure. Institutional participation is mandatory. It is important that enrollees keep a copy of any enrollment agreement, contract, or application to document enrollment; tuition receipts or canceled checks to document the total amount of tuition paid; and records which will show the percentage of the course that has been completed. Such records would substantiate a claim for reimbursement from the STRF, which, in order to be considered, must be filed within 60 days following school closure.

Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) is a non-refundable charge.

A student must pay the state-imposed assessment for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all of the following applies:

  1. You are a student in an educational program, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all of part of your tuition either by cash guaranteed student loans, or personal loans, and
  2. Your total charges are not paid by any third-party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay the third party.

You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment if either of the following applies;

  1. You are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program, or
  2. Your total charges are paid by a third party, such as an employer government program or other payer, and you have no separate agreement to repay the third party.

The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by students in educational programs who are California residents, or are enrolled in a residency program attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education.

You may be eligible for STRF if you are a California resident or are enrolled in a residency program, prepaid tuition, paid STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following:

  1. The school closed before the course of instruction.
  2. The school’s failure to pay refunds or charges on behalf of a student to a third party for license fees or any other purpose, or to provide equipment or materials for which a charge was collected within 180 days before the closure of the school.
  3. The school’s failure to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federally guaranteed student loan program as required by law or to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the school prior to closure in excess of tuition and other costs.
  4. There was a material failure to comply with the Act or the Division within 30-days before the school closed or, if the material failure began earlier than 30-days prior to closure, the period determined by the Bureau.
  5. An inability after diligent efforts to prosecute, prove, and collect on a judgment against the institution for a violation of Act.
