If accepted, students remit a $500 non-refundable payment to hold their place. This payment will be applied to Occupational Therapy tuition. Students are responsible for all graduate school costs associated with the fieldwork experiences in semesters V and VI, including room, board, and transportation. These experiences may be out of town and out of state. The Student Service Center at Walsh University (330.490.7367) can provide information regarding availability of an educational loan.

Withdrawal Policy

Registration for classes creates a contract for payment of tuition, fees, and charges. A student choosing to terminate this contract with Walsh University must officially withdraw during the first week of class within any part of the term in the fall, spring or summer semester. Failure to officially withdraw within this refund period obligates the student to pay all charges in full. Withdrawal must be made in writing through the Student Service Center. Nonattendance to class or notification to a professor does not constitute an official withdrawal.
Withdrawal on or before the fifth business day will cancel all financial obligations to the University.

  • Five (5) business days or earlier ...........................100% of tuition
  • Six (6) business days or later ........................ no refund

If a student withdraws from the University beyond the withdrawal date and therefore does not receive an adjustment to tuition, the University still may be required to return a portion of the federal and/or state financial aid to the appropriate programs. Any balance created on the student's account as a result of this transaction is the responsibility of the student.

Students considering a withdrawal are encouraged to consult with a Student Service Center Representative (located in Farrell Hall) before withdrawing.

Financial Assistance

Financial aid may be available in the form of student loans to eligible students. Please complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at studentaid.gov so that your eligibility can be determined.

Accepted students are also required to complete a Walsh Application for Financial Aid to be awarded financial aid.
