In 2021, the estimated cost of rental housing in the Sacramento area is $19,000 a year. Temporary housing (e.g. airbnb) starts at approximately $35 per night.

 

CANCELLATION, WITHDRAWALS, AND REFUND

Student’s Right To Cancel

You have the right to cancel your program of instruction, without any penalty or obligations, through attendance at the first class session or the seventh calendar day after enrollment, whichever is later. After the end of the cancellation period, you also have the right to stop school at any time; and you have the right to receive a pro rata refund if you have completed 60 percent or less of the scheduled hours in the current program period in your program through the last day of attendance.

Cancellation may occur when the student provides a written notice / email of cancellation sent to info@unitedmedicalinstitute.com. Email must come from the valid student’s email address on UMI’s record.

The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form and, however expressed, it is effective if it shows that the student no longer wishes to be bound by the Enrollment Agreement.

If the Enrollment Agreement is cancelled the school will refund the student any money he/she paid, less an application fee of $100.00, within 30 days after the notice of cancellation is received.

 

Withdrawal from the program

A student may withdraw from the school at any time after the cancellation period (described above) and receive a pro rata refund if the student has attempted 60 percent or less of the scheduled hours in the program period through the last day of attendance. The refund will be less an application fee of $100 and less STRF fee. The refund will be paid within 30 days of withdrawal. If the student has completed more than 60 percent of the program period the tuition is considered earned and the student will receive no refund.

 

DMS Program Periods

Period One (1) MOD I&II (Didactic & Clinical I&II) 1,180 hours

Period Two (2) MODIII (Clinical III) 540 hours.

 

For the purpose of determining a refund under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a program of instruction when any of the following occurs:

  • The student notifies the institution of the student’s withdrawal or as of the date of the student’s withdrawal, whichever is later.

  • The institution terminates the student’s enrollment for failure to maintain satisfactory progress; failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the institution; absences in excess of the maximum set forth by the institution; and/or failure to meet financial obligations to the School.

 

Refund Calculation

For the purpose of determining the amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of recorded attendance.

The tuition amount owed to the institution equals the hourly charge for the program period (total institutional charges, minus non-refundable fees, divided by the number of hours in the program period), multiplied by the number of hours a student was scheduled to attend in the program period prior to withdrawal.

If, prior to withdrawal,  the student was scheduled to attend 60 percent or less of the total scheduled hours in the program period, the institution prorates tuition charges up to 60 percent of the period of enrollment based on the formula outlined below. For students who withdraw after attempting 60 percent of the program period of enrollment, the institution will retain 100 percent of the tuition charges for that period of enrollment. This means that the student will receive no refund and will be responsible for 100 percent of the tuition charges for the program enrollment period.

 

The calculation to determine the percentage of tuition to be refunded to the student is as follows:

Scheduled Hours in Period of Enrollment up to Student’s LDA / (divided) by Total Hours in the Period of Enrollment = Percentage of Period of Enrollment Attempted.

 

If Percentage of Period of Enrollment Attempted is more than 60 percent, then 100 percent of tuition will be retained by the institution. If the percentage is 60 percent or less, then the following calculation will be applied:

Period Tuition multiplied by Percentage of Period Enrollment Attempted equals Tuition Retained by Institution

 

If the amount of tuition (excluding non-refundable fees) that you paid is more than the amount that you owe for the time you attended, then a refund will be made within 30 days of the date the institution determines that you withdrew. If the tuition amount you are charged is more than the amount that you have already paid, then you will have to pay the difference.

 

Example 1-Refund is due: A student completed 60 out of 100 hours scheduled for the program period when the student had to withdraw from the program. It is determined that the student attempted 60% of scheduled hours for the program period (60 attempted hours divided by 100 hours in the program period). The hypothetical tuition for the program period of enrollment is $1000 plus $100 non-refundable application fee. The student has already paid full $1000 tuition and $100 application fee. Since the student attempted no more than 60% of the scheduled total hours for the program period, a refund calculation is performed to determine if and how much of the refund the student should receive. The hourly rate for the program period is $10 per program hour ($1000 divided by 100 hours). School will retain $600 for the hours that the student attempted prior to withdrawal (60 hours multiplied by $10) plus $100 non-refundable application fee. The student will receive a refund of $400 ($1000 less $600).

 

Example 2-No Refund is due: A student completed 61 out of 100 hours scheduled for the program period when the student had to withdraw from the program. It is determined that the student attempted 61% of scheduled hours for the program period (61 hours divided by 100 hours in program period). The hypothetical tuition for the program period of enrollment is $1000 plus $100 non-refundable application fee. The student has already paid full $1000 tuition and $100 application fee. Since the student attempted more than 60% of program period hours,  the student is not eligible for a refund. The school will retain full tuition, $1000, and $100 non-refundable application fee.

 

If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of monies not paid from federal student financial aid program funds. If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loans.

 

Withdrawal Date: The withdrawal date is the date through which the student’s percent of the attempted enrollment period is calculated. For a student who officially or unofficially withdraws from school, the Withdrawal Date is the student’s Last Date of Attendance (LDA). The withdrawal date for a student who fails to return from a leave of absence (LOA) is the last date of attendance prior to the start of LOA.

Last Date of Attendance: LDA is the last day a student had any academically related activity, such as class/lecture attendance, projects, clinical experience, or examination.

Withdrawal Date of Determination (DOD): The DOD is the date on which UMI determined that a student was no longer in school. DOD is used to determine the timeliness of the refund. The DOD is the earliest of the following dates:

  • The date the student provides official notification of intent to withdraw

  • The date the student failed to comply with one of the school’s published attendance/academic policies.
