Tuition Payment Plan Policy

Tuition and fees not covered by financial aid are due at registration. Students who are unable to meet this requirement may elect a Tuition Payment Plan upon approval of credit by Antioch University Los Angeles. These arrangements must be made in advance of registration. At least 40% of the amount owed must be paid in order to register, and a fee of $40 is required on all Tuition Payment Plans. The 60% balance is paid in three equal installments. Checks and all credit cards are accepted for payment. Online payment is available via myAntioch.

In addition, the Late Payment Fee is assessed whenever the student fails to meet any installment payment obligation on time. Students who owe amounts from a previous quarter may be denied re-enrollment at registration.


Tuition Refund Policy

For quarter-based programs (MAP, BA, MAE/TC, MAEx & MAOM):

The refund schedule for all quarter programs, as shown below, applies in cases of withdrawal from the University as well as in cases for reductions in the number of units for which a student is enrolled during a quarter:

New and continuing students in any of the quarter programs who drop classes during and/or after the add/drop period are subject to the following tuition refund schedule:

First 2 weeks (14 days) = 100%

Week 3 (21 days) = 70%

Week 4 (28 days) = 60%

Week 5 (35 days) = 50%

Week 6 (42 days) = 40%

Week 7 (49 days) = 30% 

Week 8 (56 days) = 20%, drops to 0% after Week 8

For semester-based programs (MFA and USMA):

Students in the semester-based programs who withdraw during the periods stated below are subject to a percentage refund of tuition which will be calculated based on the date the Office of the Registrar received the student’s written notification of his/her intention to withdraw.

The MFA In Creative Writing program refund schedule is as follows:

1)      Prior to the third day of residency = 100% refund of the semester’s tuition

All students receiving federal financial aid funds who fully withdraw from the university after the add/drop period are subject to the “Federal Return of Title IV Funds” policy which determines the amount of Federal Title IV aid that must be returned to the Federal government by the school and the student. Refer to the Withdrawal and Return of Title IV Funds Policy in this catalog. If a student withdraws within the Add/Drop period (and/or 100% refund period), any Title IV funds disbursed will be returned to the sources so that the student may use these funds elsewhere.
