Refund Policy

REFUND POLICY, CANCELLATION AND SETTLEMENT

 

For applicants who cancel enrollment or students who withdraw from enrollment a fair and equitable settlement will apply. The following policy will apply to all terminations for any reason, by either party, including student decision, course or program cancellation, or school closure. 

Any monies due to the applicant or students shall be refunded within 30 days of official cancellation or withdrawal. Official cancellation or withdrawal shall occur on the earlier of the dates that: 

(1) If the school closes or discontinues a program the school shall refund to each currently enrolled student monies paid by the student for tuition and fees and monies for which the student is liable for tuition and fees.  

(2) All fees paid by a student shall be refunded if the student chooses not to enroll in or to withdraw from the school within 7 calendar days after having signed an enrollment agreement. This involves all fees paid to the school by the student or on behalf of the student. 

(3) If the student chooses not to enroll after the 7-day cancellation period but before the first day of instruction, the school may retain the application fee or registration fee, or both. 

(4) If, after the 7-day cancellation period expires, a student withdraws after instruction begins, refunds shall be based on the total contract price for the course or program and shall include all fees, except the application, registration or enrollment fee and any charges for materials, supplies, or books which have been purchased by, and are the property of, the student. The minimum refund that the school shall pay a student who withdraws or is terminated after the 7-day cancellation period has expired and after instruction has begun, is as follows: 

 

(5) The date of withdrawal or termination is the last date of attendance by the student. A refund due to a student shall be based on the date of withdrawal or termination and paid within 60 days from the date of withdrawal or termination. 

(6) In the case of an official leave of absence, if a student fails to return to training by the end of the leave of absence, a refund due a student shall be based on the date of withdrawal or termination and paid within 60 days of the scheduled last day of the leave of absence. 

(7) Identification of any non-refundable items and applicable criteria (e.g. books must be returned in like new criteria). 

(8) For a program or portion of a program delivered by distance education, the minimum refund that a school shall pay a student who withdraws or is terminated after the 7-day cancellation period has expired and after instruction has begun shall be prorated based on the proportion of the program completed by the student. The proportion of the program completed via distance education shall be the percentage of submitted lesson assignment completed by the student compared to the total number of lesson assignments in the program or portion of the program delivered by distance education.
