BAU Professors make every effort to keep the cost of books down by (a) using books, textbooks, and articles that are available through BAU’s online library, (b) not necessarily using the newest edition of textbooks, and (c) whenever possible providing students with links to readings through Schoology, BAU’s Learning Management System (LMS). Nonetheless, the cost range of textbooks for the MBA program can reach or exceed $200 per semester.
Cancellation and Refund Policies
If a student elects to withdraw from specific course(s) or withdraw completely from the University, the following refund schedule will be used to determine any outstanding financial obligation for which the student may be responsible.
Financial good standing and a university record clear of holds are required for students to receive services. Services, including but not limited to transcript issuance, diploma release, class registration (add, drop, withdrawal, etc.), and/or housing will not be provided to students with a financial balance due or a hold of any kind on their record. Holds are based on outstanding obligations and may be financial.
Students in noncompliance with payment deadlines as of the end of the semester will be required to submit a financial guarantee or prepayment prior to future registration. The return of the prepayment by a financial institution will result in the immediate suspension of services.
Failure to meet financial obligations to the university will result in other collection procedures, which include account referral to credit reporting bureaus, private collection agencies, D.C. Office of the Tax and Revenue, and the Office of the Attorney General. Past due accounts are subject to garnishments, liens, and judgments and the withholding of money from tax refunds. In addition to late fees and interest, delinquent accounts will be assessed additional collection costs up to thirty percent of the past due balance, reasonable attorney fees, and other administrative costs. Once an account is referred to a collection agency payment must be made to the agency, not the University.
