*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 procedures or following a tour of the school facilities and inspection of equipment where training and services are provided. An applicant will be refunded all monies paid if requested within three days after signing an enrollment agreement and making an initial payment. An applicant requesting cancellation more than three days after signing an enrollment agreement and making an initial payment, but prior to entering the school, is entitled to a refund of all monies paid minus a registration fee of 15% of the contract price of the program, but in no event may the school retain more than $150.00.
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 determined termination date.
Non-attendance of class does not constitute an official withdrawal. Last Date of Attendance shall be determined as a student who has missed all scheduled class meetings within a 12.5% or approximately two-week (whichever is greater) timeframe or has not participated as stated in the syllabus without contacting the college course instructor.
Students who are expelled for non-academic reasons (i.e. Code of Conduct infractions) may not receive refund of tuition, fees, and room charges. Non-attendance of classes is considered an academic reason in these cases. 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.
In the event of an Act of God (i.e. hurricane, fire, blizzard) that delays a scheduled start date, Northeast Maritime Institute will contact the student by telephone informing the student regarding the delay and the new intended scheduled start date. A student may cancel this agreement without penalty within seven days of being notified of any expected delay to the scheduled start date.
