Policies and procedures for withdrawal from the program and academic dismissal are available upon request. All program policies and requirements are included in the VUMC Program of Medical Laboratory Science Student Handbook distributed during orientation.

You may withdraw from the school at any time after the cancellation period (described above) and receive a pro rata refund if you have completed 60 percent or less of the scheduled hours in your current payment period through the last day of attendance.  The refund will be less an administration fee not to exceed $100.00, and less any deduction for books, equipment, or supplies not returned in new condition within 45 days of withdrawal.  If the student has completed more than 60% of the current payment period the tuition is considered earned and the student will receive no refund.
