The Radiation Therapy program is not part of the University of Minnesota and the school is not certified by the USDE for eligibility for Title IV student financial aid. Therefore, accepted students are not eligible for federal financial aid.
It is the student's responsibility to obtain financing for this program. Most students obtain personal or family loans to help pay for the program. Tuition for the program is allowed to be paid in three installments to Fairview at the designated dates and may be paid via checks or credit card.
Students must have health care coverage through their own personal insurance company and will need to show evidence of Health Care Coverage (Workman’s Compensation does not apply to this program).

Refund policy/Buyers right to cancel
Each student will be notified of acceptance or rejection in writing. In the event a student is rejected, all tuition, fees and other charges will be refunded.
Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, if a student gives written notice of cancellation within five business days of execution of the enrollment agreement/confirmation or day on which the student is accepted, then a complete refund is given regardless of whether the program has started.
If a student gives notice of cancellation after five business days of the execution of the enrollment agreement/confirmation or day on which the student is accepted, but before the start of the program by the school, then all tuition, fees and other charges, except 15 percent of the total cost of the program (15 percent not to exceed $50) shall be refunded to the student.
If the student gives written notice of cancellation after the start of the period of instruction for which the student has been charged, but before completion of 75 percent of the period of instruction, the student is assessed a pro rata portion of tuition, fees and all other charges based on the number of days in the term plus 25 percent of the total program cost (25 percent not to exceed $100).
Any notice of cancellation shall be acknowledged in writing within 10 business days of receipt of such notice and all refunds shall be forwarded to the student within 30 business days of receipt of such notice.
This refund policy is not linked to any student conduct policy and any promissory instrument shall not be negotiated prior to the completion of 50 percent of the course.
Written notice of cancellation shall take place on the date the letter of cancellation is postmarked or, in the case where the notice is hand carried, it shall occur on the date the notice is delivered to the school. The date of execution of the enrollment agreement/confirmation shall be presumed to be the date of delivery of the notice of acceptance (and if delivered by mail, the postmark date of the letter of acceptance).
