New England Culinary Institute offers a refund to the student who withdraws from an educational program, according to the appropriate schedule outlined below. The Refund Schedule for Resident Programs is applied to the program tuition, room (for those students living on campus), board, and fees charged each term. Students enrolled in online or elective courses during a non-resident term will be charged a tuition fee for these courses, and may incur additional room and board fees. A separate Refund Schedule for Online Programs applies to programs offered entirely via distance education as set forth below; this refund schedule applies to tuition and fees charged for each term.
Any student wishing to voluntarily withdraw is asked to complete and sign a Notice of Withdrawal form and deliver it to the Director of Academic Services. For all refund calculations, the effective termination date will be the last date of documented attendance.
The timing of the refund payment will be based on the effective determination date of the withdrawal. In the case of a student who has provided notice of withdrawal to the school (whether in writing or otherwise), the timing of refund payment shall be based on the date actual notice is received by the school. Whereas, for any student who is withdrawn without filing a completed Notice of Withdrawal form or otherwise expressly notifying the school of said student’s decision to withdraw, the timing of refund payment will be based on the determination date of the withdrawal by the school.
Applicants who have not visited the school prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within three business days following either the regularly scheduled orientation or following a tour of the school facilities and inspection of equipment where training and services are provided.

All scholarships and discounts granted by NECI are subject to revocation in full upon the withdrawal of a student from a program.
Any monies due will be refunded to the payee within 45 days of the date of determination of the student’s withdrawal. Any tuition refund due to financial aid overpayments will be refunded after all aid is received, up to 45 days after the end of the term.
Students are responsible for paying their loans and the entire balances due on their NECI student accounts after the school’s refund policy has been applied. Students considering withdrawing from NECI are strongly encouraged to first contact Student Financial Services to determine the impact of their withdrawal on their student account and their financial aid.
