I just withdrew from a course in a private university. It's an 8-week course and I withdrew in the 2nd day of week 5 after taking 4 classes. I didn't know that if I submit the withdraw request after the week 4, I need to pay the full tuition instead of prorated tuition. That policy was never communicated to me by any school staff in any means before. And I specifically asked my school advisor if I could get a refund if I withdraw in the middle of the semester and he confirmed yes without mentioning the 4 week limitation (maybe he doesn't know as well).
I just don't think the school is justified to charge me the whole tuition because I was misled by my school advisor. Can I refuse to pay the bill unless the amount is adjusted because the total tuition is as high as $2,400?
