Refund Policy

Application fees will not be refunded.

Because faculty and staff salary commitments must be made in advance and the costs of plant operations are fixed, the College must follow a very limited refund policy. Details of this policy as it relates to tuition, room, and board follow. Appeals for refunds due to extenuating circumstances may be made in writing to the Program Director or the Dean of Special Programs.

If Skidmore College cancels a program, all fees will be refunded.

College Credit

High-school graduates, matriculated college students, and non-traditional students may register for three semester hours of undergraduate credit from Skidmore College. Applicants who choose this option should register for undergraduate credit; the course designation is DM351/352 (Modern/Advanced). Students are expected to comply with Skidmore’s academic policies.
