For example, if a student is receiving Financial Aid, but the total award will not cover the entire tuition cost, the finance fee will be 7% of the cash balance regardless of the details of the student’s particular payment plan.

Refund Policy

Students who wish to withdraw from their course of study at Atlanta Institute of Music and Media must submit a notice of withdrawal in writing to the appropriate administrative staff member.

Withdrawal forms are available from any staff member, or students may submit an original letter stating their intent to withdraw.

In the event a student does not complete a withdrawal form, AIMM will complete a pro-rata refund calculation based on the student’s last day of attendance. Students who do not attend any classes will be fully refunded any advance payments made.

AIMM will use the date of withdrawal to calculate whether any refunds are due or further financial obligations remain.

The calculation is based on the percent of scheduled instructional & lab hours compared to the total hours in the level in which the student was enrolled at the time of withdrawal.

If it is determined that a refund is owed or that the student still owes tuition, the student will be notified in writing within the parameters outlined below. The calculations for federal financial aid recipients differ from those of cash paying students. Refund calculations are detailed below.

Federal regulations govern the administration of the Title IV federal student aid programs in which AIMM participates. Refunds made to first-time financial aid recipients upon their withdrawal will be calculated in the following manner:

AIMM will only retain the amount of school charges that is proportional to the part of the enrollment period that was completed by the student. The refund calculation will be based on the number of calendar days completed in the period of enrollment for which tuition and fees were charged (pro rata). If the student attended for 60% in the period of enrollment charged, AIMM may retain 100% of the charges for that period.

Refunds for all other (non-federal) financial aid recipients and for all cash-paying students will be calculated according to AIMM’s Refund Policy.

AIMM’s Refund Policy complies with the refund policies adopted by the Georgia Nonpublic Postsecondary Education Commission and the Commission on Occupational Education, in particular, those listed below:

  • The institution’s refund policy is published in the catalog and uniformly administered.
  • Refunds, when due, are made without requiring a request from the student.
  • Refunds, when due, shall be made within 30 days (1) of the last day of attendance if written notification of withdrawal has been provided to the institution by the student, or (2) from the date the institution terminates the student or determines withdrawal by the student.
  • Retention of tuition and fees collected in advance for a student who does not commence class does not exceed $100.

Such refunds are determined based on the proration of tuition and percentage of program completed at withdrawal in the enrollment period that was completed by the student, up until 50% of the program.

If a student withdraws after completing 50% of the program in the enrollment period, no refund of tuition is required.

Financial Aid Students

If you are a first-time federal student loan borrower, you must attend THIRTY DAYS before the school receives your first loan disbursement.

For this reason, an initial Tuition deposit is to be made NO LATER THAN two (2) weeks prior to your ‘Initial Date of Enrollment’.
