Refunds from overpayment of account (including but not limited to Title IV Stafford Sub/Unsub Loans, Scholarships, Grants, Parent Plus loans, or overpayment):
Students can choose to receive their refund by ACH Direct Deposit, Paper Check or Reloadable Debit Card; this is done through the Student Information System (SIS) account. Students are expected to check their SIS account to find out when their account has a credit (due to a dropped class or disbursement of financial aid funds) and when their NHTI Refund has been processed. Once the NHTI Refund is processed students can expect to receive it as follows: ACH Direct Deposit and Reloadable Debit Card in three business days and Paper Check refunds up to 14 business days. Please make sure the most current mailing address is on file with our college; address changes are made in the Registrar's office.
Refunds from cancelled/dropped courses or withdrawing from the college:
All refunds described below require that the student complete an official withdrawal form in the Registrar's Office. Therefore, students who register for classes, never attend and do not officially withdraw are liable for all charges. Students who neglect to officially drop within the drop/add period are not eligible for a refund.
(See related sections: Withdrawal from NHTI, Academic Requirements and Policies, and Financial Aid Standards of Satisfactory Progress: Withdrawal.)
All refunds require that the student complete an official withdrawal form. Effective November 20, 2012, students who officially withdraw from the college or an individual course by the end of the fourteenth (14th) calendar day of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, less non-refundable fees. Students in classes that meet in a format shorter than the traditional semester (15-16 weeks) will have seven (7) calendar days from the designated start of the alternative semester to withdraw for a full refund. If the seventh (7th) or fourteenth (14th) calendar day falls on a weekend or holiday, the drop refund date will be the first business day following the weekend or holiday. Exception: students in courses that meet for two weeks or fewer must drop by the end of the first day of the class in order to get a 100% refund. (Please note that certain fees are non-refundable. Non-refundable fees are defined as advance tuition deposits, admission application fees, payment plan fee, and orientation fees. All other fees are refundable. This includes, but is not limited to academic instruction fees, lab fees, comprehensive student services fees, and the Nursing, Dental, and Diagnostic Medical Imaging Program clinical surcharges.)
All Federal Title IV funds (i.e. PELL, SEOG, Perkins Loan) are prorated and refunded according to the rules and regulations mandated by the U.S. Department of Education. Please contact the Financial Aid Office at (603) 230-4013 for more information.
Students registered for workshops through the Business Training Center (including Nursing Continuing Education classes) must withdraw in writing at least three days prior to the first workshop session in order to receive a full refund of tuition and fees. Students in the Dental Continuing Education classes must withdraw within five days. There may be exceptions for certain programs or workshops due to enrollment restrictions so please consult the website, program flyers and/or contact the Business Training Center directly at (603) 230-4022.
In extenuating circumstances, the President (or designee) is authorized to offer alternative compensation in the form of tuition credit or waiver to students on a case-by-case basis. Tuition credit on a student account must be used within one calendar year from the date of authorization.
Financial Aid Recipients - If you have completed the Financial Aid Award Letter/Payment Deferment for Financial Aid Recipients and returned it to the Financial Aid Office, you can deduct, from your tuition and fees due, the "estimated" amount of aid. This balance is due two weeks before the first class day of the semester. For a Payment Due Worksheet, to help you determine how much you will need to pay or how much your "estimated" refund will be, go to the Bursar's Office home page. Students will continue to see a balance due on their account until their financial aid is applied to their account and the student's portion has been paid.
VA Benefit Recipients - If you are eligible for VA education benefits you must complete all required paperwork through the VA. (The VA's processing time can take up to 10 weeks.) Once you have determined your eligible education benefit you can deduct that amount of aid the school will be receiving on your behalf. The amount left that the school will not directly receive from the VA is your balance which is due two weeks before the first class day of the semester. For a Payment Due Worksheet, to help you determine how much you will need to pay, go to the Bursar's Office home page. Students will continue to see a balance due on their account until their VA Benefits have been applied to their account and the student's portion has been paid.
Residence Hall Policies
I. Terms of Agreement
This agreement is for a period of (a) one academic year, both Fall and Spring semesters; (b) only the Spring semester; or (c) the Summer session, for a period equal to the duration of the student’s summer courses. Housing accommodations are not provided during NHTI vacation periods. Except with permission of the Director of Residence Life, all housing services, including access to the room, begin on the designated Residence Hall opening day and end by 5:00pm after a student’s last final exam or cancellation of the agreement. Graduation, official withdrawal from NHTI, academic dismissal or suspension from NHTI, or mutual consent of the parties constitute the only basis for release from this agreement. There are no refunds for dismissal or suspension from housing due to student conduct violations. If a housing renewal is not extended to a returning student or if a returning student is excluded from the second semester of the academic year, the result will be a cancellation of the agreement and charges assessed based on the refund schedule. Students residing at NHTI and enrolled at another College or University are subject to the same terms of agreement, payment, termination, and refund schedule as NHTI students.
NHTI will establish housing fees yearly and will announce these proposed fees for each academic year. All students intending to reserve a space in NHTI housing must pay a housing deposit at the time of application. Tuition, fees and housing charges are due two weeks prior to the first class day of the semester. It is the students’ responsibility to view and verify their charges online through their student account. (Log in. Select Student. Select Student Records. View Account Detail); NHTI does not send paper bills. Payments can be made online through the student’s account, by phone (603) 230-4012) or in the Bursar’s Office. Payment methods include cash, check, MasterCard/VISA, Discover and Debit Card. All student accounts with outstanding charges at the end of the semester will be sent to collections. In addition, a hold will be placed on the student’s account and they will not be able to register for future classes or receive official transcripts. For more payment information visit www.nhti.edu/student-resources/bursar.
III. Cancellation/ Refund Schedule
In order to ensure that accommodations are available to students wishing to live on campus, NHTI will refund the student’s housing fee in accordance with the refund schedule. Subsequent to occupancy, no release from this agreement or refund can be provided unless the assigned room is left clean and all sign-out procedures, including return of keys and settlement of obligations, are completed. Effective date of release will be determined by the date of such completion.
Academic Year Provisions:
A. If the housing agreement is cancelled, any amount of housing refund due to a student will first be applied to said student’s current NHTI balance.
B. The deposit is refundable if a written cancellation from the student is received by the Director of Residence Life by the end of the last business day before the student takes occupancy of the assigned room. After the student has taken occupancy of the assigned room, the Residence Hall Refund Schedule applies.
C. If by Friday of the second week of classes, as designated by the academic calendar, the agreement is cancelled by mutual consent, or cancelled for any of the reasons in the Terms of Agreement, the student receives an 80% refund of the semester’s housing fee.

D. Cancellation for any of the reasons in the Terms of Agreement or by mutual consent after Friday of the second week of classes and before the fifth week, as designated by the academic calendar, will result in a 50% refund of the semester’s housing fee.
