Chestnut Hill College announces plan to credit the accounts of residential students required to vacate their campus housing.
With the move to online classes and closure of the residence halls, the College intends to credit the accounts of residential students that were adversely impacted by these changes. The College will process a prorated credit of 50 percent of the spring semester cost of room and board for students that were required to vacate their campus housing. The College will utilize a multi-step process in determining the amount of the credit and any potential refund due to each student. The steps are as follows:
1. We will determine the cost of room and board charged to each student living in campus housing during the spring semester and post a credit of 50 percent of that cost to the student’s account.
2. For students who do not owe the College funds via payment plans or did not receive institutional funding to cover the direct costs of the College, the credit amount on their account after the previous steps are considered will be refunded to them in the form of a check mailed to their home address.
3. If the student currently owes the College funds based on the establishment of payment plan or other payment arrangement, we will offset the pro-rated credit against the amount that is still outstanding. There is a possibility that the amount the student currently owes offsets the total amount of the credit and there is no refund going to the student.
4. We will enforce the College’s financial aid policies pertaining to balances owed students. If a student received institutional aid from the College in order to cover their direct cost of attending CHC, the student’s institutional funding will be reduced by the amount of the credit.
