Withdrawal and Refund Information
The U.S. Department of Education has issued the final rules and regulations on “gainful employment.” These provisions are applicable to all schools that offer any non-degree programs of study.
All non-degree programs, regardless of school type or educational level, are currently subject to gainful employment requirements. Only degree programs (associate, bachelor, graduate and/or professional) and two-year transfer programs are not subject to the gainful employment requirements. Clarks Summit University does not have any programs of study that meet the requirements for “gainful employment” as defined by the U.S. Department of Education.

Professional Licensure Disclosure
Clarks Summit University has two programs that lead to professional certification or licensure—the Bachelor of Science in Education and the Master of Science in Counseling programs. Both of these programs meet the requirements for certification and licensure in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. In many cases, our requirements will meet or exceed other states’ requirements. However, some states have additional requirements to meet certification or licensure in their state. CSU has not determined whether program requirements for our programs meet the specific requirements for other states. We encourage students to contact the educational and licensing board of their home states for more information. It is also imperative that students notify the registrar’s office if their home residential state changes during their program of study.
This information is provided in response to Federal Code of Regulations, 34 CFR 668.43.
