Legal policies and procedures

Campus crime statistics

Clery act

Hult International Business School is a community of individuals dedicated to teaching and learning. We are committed to making everyone on campus safe, enhancing public safety through education and prevention.

Under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (Clery Act), Hult must report any crimes of which it has knowledge—whether through a local police department or non-law enforcement school officials that occur:

  • on campus, with a separate designation for crimes in dormitories.
  • in or on certain noncampus buildings or property.
  • on certain public property.

The definitions of campus, noncampus building or property, and public property under the Clery Act are as follows:

The term campus means:

  1. Any building or property owned or controlled by an institution of higher education within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution and used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s educational purposes, including residence halls.
  2. Property within the same reasonably contiguous geographical area of the institution that is owned by the institution but controlled by another person, is used by students, and supports institutional purposes (such as a food or other retail vendor).

The term noncampus building or property means:

  1. Any building or property owned or controlled by a student organization recognized by the institution.
  2. Any building or property (other than a branch campus) owned or controlled by an institution of higher education that is used in direct support of, or in a relation to, the institution’s educational purposes, is used by students, and is not within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution.

The term public property means all public property that is within the same reasonably contiguous geographic area of the institution, such as a sidewalk, a street, other thoroughfare, or parking facility, and is adjacent to a facility owned or controlled by the institution if the facility is used by the institution in direct support of, or in a manner related to, the institution’s educational purposes.

The term unfounded crimes refers to any crime that law enforcement authorities investigated and determined to be false or baseless. In other words, no crime occurred. Only sworn law enforcement personnel can make a formal determination that a crime is unfounded. School officials cannot remove a crime report from this report without a formal law enforcement report.

Crime prevention and reporting
Security and access

During business hours, the School will be open to students, employees, guests, and invitees. During non-business hours access to all School facilities is by ID, or by admittance via a student, faculty or staff member with a valid ID.

Emergencies may necessitate changes or alterations to any posted schedules.

Campus law enforcement authority

Members of the Hult staff and have the authority to ask persons for identification and to determine whether individuals have lawful business at Hult International Business School. Criminal incidents are referred to local law enforcement authorities. All crime victims and witnesses are strongly encouraged to immediately report the crime to the Local Police Department and the Hult CET. Prompt reporting will assure timely warning notices on-campus and timely disclosure of crime statistics.

If an incident occurs on campus the Hult CET will communicate regularly with the Local Police Departments. The Hult CET works closely with the local police investigative staff when incidents arise that require joint investigative efforts, resources, crime related reports and exchanges of information, as deemed necessary. There is no written memorandum of understanding between Hult and any local police department.

Accurate and prompt crime reporting

Community members, students, faculty, staff, and guests are encouraged to report all on-campus crimes and public safety related incidents to the Hult Campus Emergency Team (CET) in a timely manner.

During orientation students are informed of security procedures in the building and local law enforcement services. Similar information is presented to new employees.

A common theme of all awareness and crime prevention programs is to encourage students and employees to be aware of their responsibility for their own security and the security of others.

In addition to the initial orientation, information is disseminated to students and employees through online systems such as myHult and emailed reminders.

When time is of the essence, information is released to the school community through security alerts posted prominently throughout campus and through memos sent over the school's electronic mail system.

Missing student notification

Process

Hult International Business School requires all students to provide contact information and an emergency contact to the School. Students must identify their contact on the Student Portal. This person will be notified in the event the student is officially reported as missing. Hult will investigate every report of a missing student and initiate an investigation based on department policy.

If a student for whom a missing person report has been filed has been missing for more than 24 hours, then within the next 24 hours the Hult will:

• Begin search procedures.
• Notify appropriate law enforcement officials in the Residence area by going to the police station with a copy of the student’s passport and other relevant documents/information.
• Notify the individual identified by the student to be contacted in such circumstances.
• If the student is under 18 years old and not emancipated, notify a parent or guardian.

The police station will contact the embassy of the student who is missing and will coordinate the search for the student with the embassy. All students should be reported missing to the police station they are registered at, if students are living out of the Residence we will need to contact their local police station.

Students, employees, or other individuals who believe that a student living in the Residence has been missing for 24 hours may report it to the Residence Manager.

Students, employees, or other individuals who believe that a student living outside of the Residence has been missing for 24 hours may report it to the Student Service Manager. All faculty, staff, or students who receive a report of a missing student should immediately report it to the Residence Manager or Student Services Manager.

Harassment and Bullying

Policy

Hult International Business School is committed to protecting employees and students and to promoting an atmosphere free from harassment and bullying, where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.

The School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation, age, religion, or physical disability in admission to, access to, or treatment in its programs and activities. The School strictly prohibits sexual, racial, and other types of harassment of students, staff, and faculty. Words, gestures, actions, or other behavior which tends to alarm, intimidate, ridicule, embarrass, or insult individuals, or which tends to create a hostile or abusive environment, will not be tolerated and may subject the individual to dismissal from the School.

What to do if a student is experiencing bullying or harassment

Whenever possible, Hult encourages students to try to resolve harassment and bullying incidents informally. There may be instances, where due to the incident’s seriousness it would only be appropriate to resolve matters formally.

If the student is comfortable, it is recommended that the student should go and talk to the person concerned and explain to them that their behavior is causing offense and ask them to stop. It is best to approach the person at the earliest opportunity to prevent the behavior from escalating.

Hult encourages students who might be subject to any of the behaviors described above to keep accurate written record of any incidents. Students should document: date, time and location of the incident, details on the behavior displayed and information on any witnesses.

Timely warning and emergency preparedness

Issuing timely warnings

In the event that a situation arises, either on or off campus, that, in the judgment of the Campus Emergency Team (CET), constitutes an ongoing or continuing threat, a campus wide “timely warning” will be issued. The warning will be issued through the school e-mail system to students, faculty, and staff as well as posted on myHult.

Anyone with information warranting a timely warning should report the circumstances to a member of the CET by phone or in person.

Emergency response and evacuation procedures

In the event of an actual emergency the campus community will be notified through e-mail and a message posted to myHult. Students must take responsibility for regularly checking their e-mail. In order to receive campus-wide e-mail announcements, students must have a School e-mail account, which is assigned and sent to each student at the beginning of the academic school year.

Emergency response

The School conducts emergency response exercises each year, such as tests of the emergency notification systems on campus. These tests are designed to assess and evaluate the emergency plans and capabilities of the institution.

Notification to the Hult community about an immediate threat

In the event of a serious incident that poses an immediate threat to members of the Hult community, the School has systems in place for communicating information quickly. Some or all of these methods of communication may be activated in the event of an immediate threat to the Hult campus community. These methods of communication include network emails and updates to Hult Online. The School will post updates during a critical incident via e-mail and Hult Online as deemed appropriate and necessary by the School.

Testing emergency response and evacuation procedures

Hult conducts announced and unannounced drills and exercises each year and conducts follow-through activities designed for assessment and evaluation of emergency plans and capabilities. Hult will publish a summary of its emergency response and evacuation procedures in conjunction with at least one drill or exercise each calendar year.

Shelter-in-place procedures

If an incident occurs and the buildings or areas around you become unstable, or if the air outdoors becomes dangerous due to toxic or irritating substances, it is usually safer to stay indoors, because leaving the area may expose you to that danger. Thus, to "shelter-in-place" means to make a shelter of the building that you are in, and with a few adjustments this location can be made even safer and more comfortable until it is safe to go outside.

For students who take more than 30 credits, these will be charged pro rata per credit and must be paid during the same academic year they are taken.

Withdrawals and Refunds

The confirmation deposit is non-refundable, except under the following circumstances:

I. In the case of an applicant confirming upon the condition of being granted a student visa for the desired campus and subsequently failing to obtain such a visa due to rejection, the applicant will be eligible for a refund of 100% of the value of the confirmation deposit.

II. In the case of an applicant confirming upon the condition of meeting entrance requirements and subsequently failing to meet such standards, the applicant will be eligible for a refund of 50% of the value of the confirmation deposit.

Early Decision applicants are ineligible for a refund under either circumstance.

IV. If an applicant has applied for the London campus, the applicant has the right to cancel within 14 days of having accepted the offer to attend Hult. The cancellation does not have to follow a specific format, but it must be made in writing through e-mail to the applicant's enrollment advisor.

Program Fee refunds are granted based on the date of the official written withdrawal processed by the Registrar’s Office. Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. The schedule that follows will apply to students withdrawing voluntarily, as well as to students who are dismissed from the School for academic or disciplinary reasons (see Dismissal from the Program below).

Application fees, New Student Fee, Insurance Coverage, Accommodation Fees and installment plan fees all non-refundable and assumed to be paid for prior to any Program Fee. Refunds will only be given on the Program Fee less than any Financial Aid awarded (meaning all financial aid, scholarships, and bursaries awarded by the School). In accordance with regulations, special rules apply to U.S. citizens, Californian residents and other permanent U.S. residents receiving U.S. federal student aid. Copies of these policies are available upon request from the Financial Aid Office.

Refund Schedule

The amount of any Program Fee refund will be based on the following schedule:

  • Prior to Matriculation: 100% of Program Fee (excluding confirmation deposit)
  • After Matriculation: 40% of Program Fee
  • After the start of Spring Semester: 0% of Program Fee

Refunds will be sent to the method of payment received depending on the amount due back to the student. As such, amounts received directly from governmental and external loan providers will first be sent back to the loan provider before refunding the student.

Any Accommodation Fee refunds are regulated in the student housing agreement.

Resource and Capacity Constraints

Home Campuses and Summer Programs are subject to capacity constraints. Students must be in good academic standing and up-to-date on Program Fee payments to be eligible to elect a new home campus or participate in Summer Programs.

Dismissal from the Program

The School reserves the right to dismiss any participant at any time whose academic performance is unsatisfactory, whose conduct constitutes unacceptable professional behavior, who has not paid their fees, or whose legal or medical problems hinder satisfactory performance. In such cases, the Dean will notify the participant in writing, a degree will not be awarded to the participant, and, as appropriate, the participant’s sponsor will be notified. For students on a student visa at their campus of study, dismissal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed.

  • The Dual Degree program must follow directly after the students’ first program and may not be deferred or delayed in any way.
  • Students must graduate on time from their first degree to participate in the dual degree.

Electives

Electives are subject to capacity and scheduling constraints. Not all electives will be available on all campuses. Electives for each program will be offered only at campuses where each program is hosted.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Withdrawal and re-entering policy

A student may withdraw from the Masters degree program at any time upon giving written notice to the School’s Registrar. The withdrawing student may re-enter the program at a later date on the condition that they will have completed their program within five years of their original start date. He or she may use any unexpired program fee credit toward the receipt of educational services or materials, which will be priced at the fee structure of the time of re-entry. The returning student is therefore liable for any fee inflation from the original enrollment to the time of re-entry. Course choices and study program will be subject to space and scheduling availability. In addition to providing written notice to the Registrar, all students must meet with the Dean prior to withdrawing (see student handbook for detailed procedure). If the student is on a student visa at his or her campus of study, withdrawal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed.

General Information

The Confirmation Deposit, including deferral fees, are non-refundable, except under the following circumstances:

i. In the case of an applicant confirming upon condition of being granted a student visa for the desired campus and subsequently failing to obtain such a visa due to rejection, the applicant will be eligible for a refund of 100% of the value of the Confirmation Deposit.

ii. In the case of an applicant confirming upon condition of meeting entrance requirements and subsequently failing to meet such standards, the applicant will be eligible for a refund of 50% of the value of the Confirmation Deposit.

Program Fee refunds are granted based on the date of the official written withdrawal processed by the Registrar’s Office. Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. The first week of class is the week containing “Immersion begins” as listed in the academic calendar. The schedule that follows will apply to students withdrawing voluntarily, as well as to students who are dismissed from the School for academic or disciplinary reasons (see Dismissal from the Program below).

If the student is on a student visa at his or her campus of study, withdrawal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed. The student must schedule an exit interview with Student Services prior to his or her departure.

Application Fees, Insurance Coverage, Pre-Masters Program Fees and Accommodation Fees are all non-refundable, charged and paid prior to any Program Fee. Refunds will only be given on Program Fee less any Financial Aid awarded (meaning all financial aid, scholarships, and bursaries awarded by the School).

Course materials paid to Hult are refundable until the date of matriculation. After classes commence, this charge is considered consumed and therefore non-refundable.

In accordance with regulations, special rules apply to U.S. citizens, Californian residents and other permanent U.S. residents receiving U.S. federal student aid. Copies of these policies are available upon request from the Financial Aid Office.

Refund Schedule

The amount of any Program Fee refund will be based on the following schedule:

  • After start of Module A 40% of Program Fee

Refunds will be sent to the method of payment received depending on the amount due back to the student. As such, amounts received directly from governmental and external loan providers will first be sent back to the loan provider before refunding the student.

Any Accommodation Fee refunds are regulated in the student housing agreement.

Dismissal from the Program

The School reserves the right to dismiss any participant, at any time, whose academic performance is unsatisfactory; whose conduct constitutes unacceptable behavior as determined at the sole discretion of Hult Campus management; who has not paid their fees; or whose legal or medical problems hinder satisfactory performance. In such cases, the Dean will notify the participant in writing, a degree will not be awarded to the participant, and, as appropriate, the participant’s sponsor will be notified. For students on a student visa at their campus of study, dismissal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed.

For students studying in San Francisco, the rules set out by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education in the State of California will apply www.bppe.ca.gov Similarly, those students studying in the United Kingdom will follow the Competition & Markets Authority rules covering Higher Education, www.gov.uk/cma

Resource and Capacity Constraints

Global Rotation Program

The Global Rotation Program is subject to capacity constraints. Students must be in good academic standing, and be up-to-date on payments to participate in this program. If you are changing campus location permanently you may be provided with separate Terms and Conditions for the new campus.

Electives

Electives are subject to capacity and scheduling constraints. Not all electives will be available on all campuses. Electives for each program will be offered only at campuses where each program is hosted.

Withdrawals and Refunds

Withdrawal and re-entering policy

A student may withdraw from the EMBA program at any time upon giving written notice to the School’s Registrar. The withdrawing student may re-enter the program at a later date on the condition that they will have completed their program within five years of their original start date. He or she may use any unexpired program fee credit toward the receipt of educational services or materials, which will be priced at the fee structure of the time of re-entry. The returning student is therefore liable for any fee inflation from the original enrollment to the time of re-entry. Course choices and study program will be subject to space and scheduling availability. In addition to providing written notice to the Registrar, all students must meet with the Dean prior to withdrawing (see student handbook for detailed procedure). If the student is on a student visa at his or her campus of study, withdrawal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed.

General Information

The Confirmation Deposit, including deferral fees, are non-refundable, except under the following circumstances:

  • i. In the case of an applicant confirming upon condition of being granted a student visa for the desired campus and subsequently failing to obtain such a visa due to rejection, the applicant will be eligible for a refund of 100% of the value of the Confirmation Deposit.
  • ii. In the case of an applicant confirming upon condition of meeting entrance requirements and subsequently failing to meet such standards, the applicant will be eligible for a refund of 50% of the value of the Confirmation Deposit.

Program Fee refunds are granted based on the date of the official written withdrawal processed by the Registrar’s Office. Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. The first week of class is the week containing “Immersion begins” as listed in the academic calendar. The schedule that follows will apply to students withdrawing voluntarily, as well as to students who are dismissed from the School for academic or disciplinary reasons (see Dismissal from the Program below).

If the student is on a student visa at his or her campus of study, withdrawal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed. The student must schedule an exit interview with Student Services prior to his or her departure.

Application Fees, Insurance Coverage, Pre-EMBA Program Fees and Accommodation Fees are all non-refundable, charged and paid prior to any Program Fee. Refunds will only be given on Program Fee less any Financial Aid awarded (meaning all financial aid, scholarships, and bursaries awarded by the School).

Course materials paid to Hult are refundable until the date of matriculation. After classes commence, this charge is considered consumed and therefore non-refundable.

In accordance with regulations, special rules apply to U.S. citizens, Californian residents and other permanent U.S. residents receiving U.S. federal student aid. Copies of these policies are available upon request from the Financial Aid Office.

Refund Schedule

The amount of any Program Fee refund will be based on the following schedule:

  • Prior to first day of classes 100% of Program Fee
  • After first day of class 60% of Program Fee
  • After start of Module A 40% of Program Fee
  • After start of Module B 20% of Program Fee
  • After start of Module C 0% of Program Fee

Refunds will be sent to the method of payment received depending on the amount due back to the student. As such, amounts received directly from governmental and external loan providers will first be sent back to the loan provider before refunding the student.

Any Accommodation Fee refunds are regulated in the student housing agreement.

Dismissal from the Program

The School reserves the right to dismiss any participant, at any time, whose academic performance is unsatisfactory; whose conduct constitutes unacceptable behavior as determined at the sole discretion of Hult Campus management; who has not paid their fees; or whose legal or medical problems hinder satisfactory performance. In such cases, the Dean will notify the participant in writing, a degree will not be awarded to the participant, and, as appropriate, the participant’s sponsor will be notified. For students on a student visa at their campus of study, dismissal from Hult will invalidate the student visa and immigration authorities will be informed.
