Class registration may be cancelled at the University’s discretion prior to the start of classes by the Office of the Registrar if a student account balance is not fully satisfied by payment, financial aid and/or a payment plan.
Emergencies are a part of life. Is your family prepared for the unexpected after classes begin? If you’re involved in an accident or suffer from a serious illness, you can avoid losing the time and money you’ve invested in school.
William Peace University has partnered with GradGuard™ to offer Tuition Insurance from Allianz Global Assistance to help minimize your possible financial loss in case of an emergency or accident.
The Tuition Protection plan is like an extension of our refund policy. This plan provides coverage for full-time undergraduate tuition, on-campus housing, board and fees. It can reimburse up to 100% of your nonrefundable school costs after a mid-semester withdrawal for a covered illness, injury, psychological condition, and more—protecting your investment in higher education.
To get a quote or learn more about the Tuition Protection Plan, call 1.866.724.4384 or go to: Gradguard.com/tuition/peace.
Tuition insurance plans also come with Student Life Assistance: a 24-hour hotline to help students stay safe on and off campus. At William Peace University, we want our families to have peace of mind during their entire time with us.
Insurance must be purchased prior to first day of classes. Coverage extends through the end of that semester.

Return of Federal Unearned Funds for Title IV Recipients
Federal financial aid funds (Title IV funds) are awarded the expectation that you will complete the entire period of enrollment. Title IV Aid includes:
- Stafford Loan
- Parent PLUS Loan
- Pell Grant
You can earn a percentage of the funds that are disbursed with each day of class attendance. When a student who has received Title IV funds leaves school before the end of the semester or period of enrollment, federal law requires that William Peace University calculate the percentage and amount of unearned financial aid funds that must be returned to the federal government. Once you have completed more than 60% of the enrollment period, you are considered to have earned all funding received. This calculation may have the effect of requiring you to repay funds that have already been disbursed to you. A leave of absence may be considered a withdrawal. You are encouraged to meet with the Office of Financial Aid and the Student Services Office prior to making the decision to withdraw from school.
Institutional Refund Policy
The following institutional refund policy applies to:
- Students who are not receiving federal Title IV aid
- Students whose accounts are not cleared after applying the Return of Federal Unearned Funds formula described above.
If you are withdrawing before the end of the semester, you will be responsible for the following percentage of tuition and fees for the semester:
- During the second week: 40 percent
- During the third week: 60 percent
- During the fourth week: 80 percent
- After four weeks: 100 percent
* Board charges will be refunded based on the number of weeks remaining in the semester after the week of withdrawal.
* Room charges will not be refunded.
* Beginning on the first day of classes, no refunds will be made if a student is suspended for academic or conduct reasons.
Parking permits can be purchased in the fall semester for the entire academic year. If a student begins in the spring semester or is returning from winter break with a vehicle, they can purchase a parking permit at 50% of the annual rate. Parking permit fees paid are nonrefundable.
