A student who withdraws from school prior to the beginning of May will be eligible for a room and cafeteria refund from the first installment on a pro-rated basis. Tuition will be charged as long as the student is receiving academic credit. Students who are suspended will not receive a refund of school fees. Refunds other than those stated above will be made only at the discretion of the Student Finance Committee.
Semester exam permits will be issued only to students whose accounts are current. Dorm and library financial obligations must also be met prior to receiving an exam permit.
Experience has shown the wisdom of safeguarding personal funds through the use of the student bank provided by the Business Office. Blue Mountain Academy is not responsible for the loss of money not deposited in the student bank.
It is the parents’ responsibility to provide sufficient money for student transportation, clothes, and personal needs. This should be arranged between the parent and student before such money is needed.
Due to bank policy, Blue Mountain Academy cannot provide check cashing services. Students who need cash must make their own arrangements. Except for the cash incentive allowed students working at industry, the school does not permit students to withdraw cash against their account.
Students are encouraged to pay tithe on their earnings. A tithe deduction form is available from the Business Office. Receipts for tithe deducted from the students’ earnings will be provided by the Pennsylvania Conference of Seventh-day Adventist.
