Tuition Policy: Quarterly Payment Plan (1 payment per Quarter)

Students on the Quarterly Payment Plan must make their payment on or before the week before the first day of the academic term. Students who pay after the due date will be subject to a $75 late fee. The Financial Office will notify the student by email, with a copy to the College Registrar, that they will be dropped from their classes. ACM accepts bank checks, electronic bank transfers, or credit card payments for tuition costs. The College also offers low interest, 15-month level pay plan.


Student’s Right to Cancel

The student has the right to cancel and receive a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later, less the non-refundable fees. (5 CCR §71716(b)).


Student Refund Policy

To cancel enrollment and obtain a refund, the student must provide written notice to the Office of the Registrar.

Withdrawal may be effectuated by the student’s written notice or by the student’s conduct, including, but not necessarily limited to, a student’s lack of participation. Students have a right to cancel their enrollment agreement and obtain a refund by submitting a Withdrawal Form to the Registrar’s Office prior to the withdrawal deadline. The withdrawal becomes official only when the Registrar’s Office has received the completed and signed Withdrawal Form. The effective date used to determine a refund of fees will be based on and computed from the last possible class attendance/participation date.

Refunds will be made within 45 days of official withdrawal or 45 days of the date of the last possible day of the student’s attendance/participation. According to ACM Board of Trustees and accrediting body regulations, the refund distribution will be handled as prescribed by federal and state law and according to ACM Board of Trustees and accrediting body regulations. The refund procedure is uniformly applied to all students, regardless of the form of their tuition payment. In case of conflicting laws and regulations, Federal and State regulations will take precedence in that order. A student may receive a refund check only when the refund amount exceeds the balance they owe to the College. The basis for refunds is as follows:


The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (a total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days a student attended or was scheduled to attend prior to withdrawal. 5, CCR §71750(c)(1)
