I write today to update you on the policy for refunds and credits for room and board and the guidance we will provide given the financial hardship the COVID-19 pandemic has caused for many of you. We have, in all earnest, taken into account the impact that needing to depart campus early has had on our students and families.
Refunds and Credits
Allegheny College will credit each student account for room and board that the student was charged for the period after March 13, 2020, the last day students could be on campus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The credit is 40% of the room and board, representing the remaining portion of the semester for the students who have departed campus as of March 13. We have calculated the room and board credit by applying this percentage to each student’s specific room and board charges for the semester.
The result of this room and board credit can be viewed on the online billing statement available through the TMS link on WebAdvisor. Complete instructions about refunds, including the impact this specific refund may have on a TMS payment plan and the opportunity to use the refund to reduce debt, can be found at Student Refunds on the Allegheny Financial Services website. Students may request a refund of a billing statement credit balance at any time by completing the Student Refund Form on WebAdvisor. All refunds will be mailed to the individual student’s home address.
Please contact Financial Services at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 800-376-7075 with any questions you may have. We are very committed to helping you meet your financial needs at the College during this extremely challenging time.
