“Cost of Attendance” is the estimated cost of completing a full year at Williamson College of the Trades. The Cost of Attendance is also referred to as a “Budget” for financial aid purposes.

What is Williamson’s Student Refund Policy?

As outlined within the Student Enrollment Agreement, Student Handbook, and College Catalog, Williamson’s student refund process is initiated through the completion of the student withdrawal process, which establishes an official withdrawal date.


All applicant costs will be refunded if such a request is made within three days after signing an Enrollment Agreement and making an initial payment. An applicant requesting cancellation more than three days after signing an Enrollment Agreement and making an initial payment, but prior to entering the school, is entitled to a refund of all monies paid. Applicants who have not visited the school prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within three business days following either the regularly scheduled orientation procedures or following a tour of the college facilities and inspection of equipment where training and services are provided.


In all other cases, the refund process is coordinated automatically through the completion of the College withdraw process. Refunds for specific student costs are calculated by percentage by the College Business Office in accordance with the established student withdrawal date as outlined in table below. The College will make all required refunds within sixty business days of the established student withdraw date.
