The Institute does not participate in, nor have any agreements with, any financial aid or loan programs, that is, no federal, state, local, or private aid or loan programs. If a student obtains a private loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest per the student’s agreement with the lender.
If the student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. Since The Sanville Institute is not accredited, its students are not eligible for federally funded student loans. However, if the student is eligible for a loan guaranteed by the federal or state government and the student defaults on the loan, both of the following may occur: (1) The federal or state government or a loan guarantee agency may take action against the student, including applying any income tax refund to which the person is entitled to reduce the balance owed on the loan. (2) The student may not be eligible for any other federal student financial aid at another institution or other government assistance until the loan is repaid.
The program length is 4-6 years. A minimum of three years of academic work and completion of a dissertation study are required for the degree. Since the PhD program is designed for clinicians who intend to work in the field while they earn the degree, carrying a full-time workload may extend the time required to complete the program.
Estimated charges for the total doctoral program range from $69,300-$103,950, depending on whether the student takes four or six years to complete the requirements. In addition, there will be separate annual fees for library and materials as listed above estimated at $3,000, and graduates will also incur the cost of the required dissertation editing and technical review.
The student has a right to a full refund of all refundable charges less a cancellation fee of $100 if he/she cancels the signed enrollment agreement in writing by the seventh day after enrollment or through attendance at the first class session, whichever is later. In the case of new students, the amount retained for application fees may not exceed $250.
Students have the right to withdraw from the course of instruction at any time. Students who withdraw from the program during the course of any given quarter and have completed 60% or less of the course of instruction for that quarter will be granted a pro rata tuition refund. A detailed description of the tuition refund policy with an example of its application is included in the Schedule of Current Student Tuition and Fees. The Institution shall pay or credit refunds within 30 days of a student’s cancellation or withdrawal.
