Certain fees may be refunded on a pro-rated basis, if applicable. All students wishing to withdraw must file an official withdrawal notice (available in the Registrar’s Office) with the Registrar’s Office, which must be signed by the student. Tuition credit will be calculated from the time the notice is received in the Registrar’s Office. Refunds shall be processed within sixty (60) business days of receipt of the withdrawal request or termination date.

Non-attendance of class does not constitute an official withdrawal. The Institute will review attendance and student tuition accounts at week four of the semester to determine refunds and institution-initiated student terminations.

Students who are expelled for non-academic reasons may not receive refund of tuition, fees, and room charges. In accordance with the NMI refund policy, there will be no refund of room charges after the start of classes. It is NMI’s policy to withhold all diplomas, degrees, official transcripts, and other official recognition of work completed at NMI from students with outstanding debts to NMI.
