Each Urshan College student deserves the best financial aid advisement possible and the UC Financial Aid office staff are committed to providing current and accurate advisement for a variety of potential student financial aid sources. Every student should contact the UC Financial Aid office for personal assistance and to answer any financial aid questions they may have.
Financial aid is defined as money provided to students and their families as either “gift aid” or “self-help” to assist in paying college costs. “Gift aid,” as the name implies, is free money such as scholarships and grants, which students do not have to repay. “Self-help” programs include loans and employment and are so named because students must repay loans and work for money awarded through employment programs. Awards to students consist of scholarships, grants, loans, and employment—singly or in combination (See UC Financial Aid Handbook).
Other Financial Aid Source
Schholarship, grant and loan opportunities and eligibility requirements are listed under the Admissions tab on the college website, www.urshancollege.org. Any questions you may have about financial aid at Urshan College can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Additional financial aid may be available from numerous sources, including the student’s home church or district, benevolent associations and private and public charitable funds.
Refund and Withdrawal Policies
- It is understood that any terms extended to any student are for convenience in paying the tuition and fees and are not in any way to be considered as payment(s) for periods of time. By accepting applications, the College has assumed the obligation of furnishing a complete program, instructors, equipment, classrooms and other facilities necessary for teaching those programs at the stated offered tuition cost and with the understanding that refunds will be made per academic term only.
The account of students who drop classes or withdraw from the College will be credited according to Table 5. The Refund Scale on the following page.
Refunds are calculated based on the date the student officially withdraws from the College. No refunds shall be provided in case of an unauthorized withdrawal. Failure to file the signed withdrawal form with the dean of students within two weeks of the last attendance in an on-campus class constitutes an unauthorized withdrawal. For students in short-term courses, failure to file the signed withdrawal form with the director of distance learning within 48 hours of the last attendance in class constitutes an unauthorized withdrawal. Refunds will be made to the student within 30 days of official withdrawal. Refunds will not be paid to any person other than the student.
Students who drop short-term courses (e.g. online courses) will be credited according to Table 6. Course Withdrawal Credit Scale. Students may drop a course even if the course has not yet met.
Students receiving benefits administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs shall be entitled to a refund of 90% of the exact pro-rata amount of tuition and fees. The exact proration will be determined by dividing the number of class days remaining in the semester at the time of official withdrawal by the total number of class days in the semester. Where the amount of refund is less than that which would be applied under the standard refund policy, the standard policy shall apply. Refunds will be paid to the student within 40 days of official withdrawal. (38 CFR 21.4255)
- Withdrawal during the semester is inadvisable; however, when unavoidable circumstances make it necessary the matter should be discussed with the dean of students who will initiate, if necessary, a withdrawal process.
Failure to complete the withdrawal process within two weeks of the last class attendance constitutes an unauthorized withdrawal. No refunds shall be provided in case of an unauthorized withdrawal. In addition, unauthorized withdrawal will result in a failing grade being entered for all courses in which the student is registered. Students are considered enrolled until they complete all withdrawal procedures.
Students who withdraw from the College have 48 hours to vacate the premises. All student conduct regulations remain binding until withdrawing students have left the campus.
Health and Safety
- Drug and Alcohol Abuse – “Students must refrain from using tobacco in any form, drinking alcoholic beverages, using illegal drugs, or abusing legal drugs” (from the ‘Code of Conduct’ in the Student Handbook).
- Vaccinations Policy – “To facilitate physical health and protect against the spread of disease, Urshan College encourages all faculty, staff, and students to receive immunizations as recommended by personal medical care providers. Urshan College recommends all employees and students remain up-to-date on vaccinations and obtain any vaccines which need to be administered every year.
Transfer of Credit Policies
Students may earn credit transfers for an equivalent course(s) previously taken at another institution. Because of wide variations in educational systems, quality, appropriateness, and applicability, all potential course transfers will be evaluated by the Registrar before such transfers are granted. The Academic Dean and other qualified faculty may be consulted on an as-needed basis. This process will ensure these credit transfers are Urshan-equivalent courses based on similar content, level, and student outcomes. The Registrar may also consider credit transfers for general elective courses for which there is not an Urshan equivalent course. However, a final course grade of “C” or above from an accredited institution is required to be eligible for credit transfer. Courses graded as “Pass” or “Satisfactory” will be eligible for credit transfer only if the transcript identifies the “Pass/Satisfactory” grade as equivalent to a “C” or higher grade. Official transcripts must be sent directly to Urshan College for evaluation. Credit transfers earned from unaccredited and international colleges will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Students may appeal credit transfer decisions to the Academic Affairs Committee if they feel their request was denied unfairly. The decision of the Academic Affairs Committee is final. Requests for credit transfers based on military service will be evaluated using the guidelines provided by the American Council on Education.
Urshan College requires that 15 credits of the last 30 credits earned for an associate’s degree and 30 credits of the last 60 upper-level credits earned for a bachelor’s degree must be earned at Urshan. Additionally, the maximum allowable credit transfers (the sum of all general and military credit transfers, CLEP/AP credits, GATS/PI credits, and Work Training and Life Experience credits) for any student shall not exceed 90 credit hours.
Copyright Infringement Policies
As part of our purpose to train servants of God to walk with God in all of life, we expect godly integrity in the academic work done at Urshan College. God’s covenant with His people calls for honesty and a commitment to truth. Specifically applied to academic labors, this means that we accurately represent our work to others. In other words, neither cheating nor plagiarism is tolerated. Plagiarism, simply defined, is presenting the ideas of others as if they were one’s own. The ideas of others can be written or spoken, published or non-published. The presentation of those ideas can be in a quotation, a paraphrase, a summary, or simply as the idea behind one’s own thoughts. Proper credit must always be given to the source or ideas through documentation, regardless of whether or not a professor has specifically requested footnotes and/or a bibliography. The first violation of either plagiarism or cheating will result in failure of the assignment or test in question and could, depending on the assignment, result in failure of the course. A second violation will result in dismissal from the institution. Unauthorized distribution of copyrighted material may also subject a student to civil and criminal liabilities (this includes but is not limited to lectures uploaded within a particular course).
Urshan’s complaint and grievance policy is intended to accommodate issues of serious merit and may not be abused by frivolous claims. Fair and prompt resolution of legitimate student grievances is a vital part of the Urshan system’s professional and ethical commitment to its students.
All parties in the grievance process shall be guided by Christian principles as specified in the Urshan Honor Code and shall conduct themselves in both verbal and written expression in the highest tradition of Christian love and mutual respect.
The Urshan system’s recognition of a student’s right to make complaints adheres to the following policy:
Urshan takes every complaint or grievance seriously. Urshan aims to address complaints and grievances through a resolution process that:
- Is impartial and fair to all parties involved
- Is carried out with transparency and consistency
- Is accessible and available to all students
- Is handled within established timelines
- Respects the privacy of all parties involved
- Is appropriate for dealing with complex and sensitive issues
Students may make complaints or grievances without fear of reprisal.
The grievance procedure is as follows:
Complaints should be addressed to one of three appropriate offices:
- Complaints regarding student life to the Office of the Dean of Student Services
- Complaints regarding academics or faculty to the Office of the Academic Dean
- Complaints regarding institutional issues or administrative personnel to the Office of the Executive Vice President.
STEP 1: When a problem or issue arises, students are advised to seek information and assistance from the appropriate supervisory office. Students have three options for proceeding:
- Take no further action.
- Make comments or suggestions regarding the issues. The majority of complaints are resolved successfully at this step.
- File a formal written complaint (SEE STEP 2 BELOW).
STEP 2: A student files a formal written complaint to the appropriate supervisory office responsible for the service, decision, or action about which they wish to complain. The appropriate supervisory office will endeavor to find a resolution.
- Formal written complaints should be filed via the Urshan complaint portal.
- Receipt of grievance will be acknowledged in writing in no more than 10 business days.
- Resolution of grievance will be reached within 30 days.
STEP 3: If a satisfactory resolution has not been obtained at this point, students may file a formal appeal with the Executive Vice President who will hear the complaint and render a final decision based on all the evidence presented. Only the President of the institution may overturn this decision.
