On the day of registration it is expected that each student pay a minimum of 60% of the total cost of that semester (registration, tuition, activity and lab fees, and room and board). Book costs should be paid in full. If it is not feasible for the student to pay this amount, arrangements must be made with the Business Manager before registration day.
No transcript or diploma will be issued until all academic, financial and other obligations to Cornerstone are met.
If a student who has applied to Cornerstone gives written notice of cancellation within fifteen business days after the day on which the application was approved, CBI will refund all tuition, fees and other charges paid by the student.
When a student has been accepted by Cornerstone and gives written notice of cancellation following the fifteenth business day after the date of the acceptance but before the start of the course of instruction, CBI will retain 15% of the total cost of the course or $50, whichever is less.
When a student has been accepted by CBI and gives written notice of cancellation after the start of the course of instruction but before completion of 75% of the course of instruction, the amount charged for tuition, fees, and all other charges will not exceed the pro rata portion of the total cost of the course that the length of the course completed bears to its total length, plus 25% of the total cost of the course or $100, whichever is less. After completion of 75% of the course of instruction, no refund will be given. Veterans will be refunded according to VA policy.
