Refund/Reversal of Fees Information

A non-refundable program deposit of $500 is required to secure your space in the Quarter Plus program. This deposit will be posted to your Student Account in May or June, depending on the date that the Quarter Plus waiver packet is completed. You will be notified by an email when the deposit has been posted. Payment will be due within three days of posting to the account. If the payment is not received within three days, you will be dropped from the program. If you are dropped due to non-payment and wish to be re-enrolled in the program, a $50 administrative fee will be charged to re-enroll.

The balance of the Quarter Plus program fees ($3770), including housing and dining, will be posted to your Student Account on or about July 16, 2018. Payment of these fees will be due within three days of the posting. After July 16, 2018 there is no reversal for program fees for the Quarter Plus institutional and instructional fee ($2658). Housing and Dining should be contacted separately regarding their refund policies.

If it is determined by Extended Education before the start of the program that enrollment in classes offered in the Quarter Plus program will not apply towards your degree progress, either due to Cal Poly major requirements, transfer credit or Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) test scores, all fees will be reversed and you will be dropped from the program.

Cal Poly Extended Education reserves the right to cancel this program because of security, health, academic quality, or operational concerns at any time. In the event that the program is canceled by Cal Poly Extended Education, refunds will be granted.

The terms under which you agree to participate in the program cannot be changed or amended except in writing and signed by an authorized office of the University.
