Payment Responsibility/Payment Options

It is the student’s responsibility to finalize payment options before the designated payment deadline date in order to prevent the cancellation of classes for the term enrolled. Students will save time and avoid lines by selecting a payment option before the designated payment deadline date.


Refund Policy

Cancellation, Withdrawal, and Refund Policy

Each student should be advised that a notice of cancellation shall be in writing, and that a withdrawal may be effectuated by the student’s written notice or by the student’s conduct, including, but not necessarily limited to, a student’s lack of attendance. In compliance with the California Education Code, the refund policy for students who have completed 60 percent or less of the course of instruction is pro rata. The effective date of cancellation or withdrawal will be the date on which the student submits his or her notice to the Office of Admissions and Registrar. Tuition refunds are paid or credited to a student within 30 days of filing the withdrawal form.
A refund of 100% of institutional charges, without penalty or obligation, shall be made of the amount paid, less a $200.00 application fee for those students, who meet the following criteria:

  1. Those whose class or classes were canceled by the University
  2. Those who were not officially added by the instructor from a waiting list, and
  3. A student has the right to cancel the Enrollment Agreement and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later.

Tuition Refund Schedule

The student will not get a refund after more than 60% of the instruction has been presented. For students who have completed 60% or less of the instruction period, the refund shall be on a pro rata basis. The exact amount of prorated refund will be based on the formula listed below. The following table provides the estimated amount of refund at each point of withdrawal:

Percent of Attendance 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Over 60%
Tuition Refund 90% 80% 70% 60% 50% 40% 0%

In calculating the refund, the University will:

  1. Deduct the registration fee from the total tuition charge.
  2. Divide this figure by the number of hours of the program.
  3. The quotient is the hourly charge for the program.
  4. The amount owed by the student for the purpose of calculating the refund due is derived by multiplying the total hours attended by the hourly charge for instruction calculated in (3), plus the amount of the registration fee specified in (1); and
  5. The refund shall be any amount in excess of the figure derived from (4) that was paid by the student to Daybreak University.

For example: if a student withdraws a course after 18 hours out of 45 hours (4.5 credits x 10 weeks) and its tuition is $900, the refund will be: $900 - $900 x 18/45 credit hours = $540.


Students must follow the withdrawal procedure to be officially withdrawn from a course. Failure to do so could result in the student being charged
and receiving a failing grade in the class.


Daybreak University offers a number of scholarships to help qualified students of every race/ethnicity, gender, and creed meet the financial requirements of attending college. Prospect and current Daybreak University students are encouraged to submit an application for the Daybreak Scholarship.
