Refund Policy (EFFECTIVE AUGUST 1, 2012)

 Students are required to attend orientation prior to the first day of the program. Orientation presentations outline the refund policy, as well as other pertinent program information and expectations.
 
Program fee refunds for students withdrawing prior to completion of a program are issued based on the following refund policy:
  • Program Cancellation - In the event of program cancellation, due to the class not meeting the minimum number of students, all fees will be refunded within thirty (30) days of the cancellation date without requiring a request from the student.
  • Student Withdrawing From the Program - Students withdrawing from a program at least five (5) business days prior to the first day of class will be refunded all fees paid. Students have the option to withdraw three (3) business days after the start of the program, but will be assessed a $100 processing fee for all refunds. The $100 processing fee will be deducted from the refund, and all other fees paid will be refunded within thirty (30) days. No refunds will be issued after the third business day after the start of the program.
  • Students Exited Administratively from a Program - No refunds are issued for administratively exited students.
  • Military Service - A student who is called for active military service shall not incur academic or financial penalties due to performing military services on behalf of our country. Fees will be refunded on a pro-rated basis and calculated by the number of program hours completed and any supplies and materials issued to the student.
  • Refunds to Students Receiving Community or Organizational Funding - All outside agency funding is subject to the refund policy. Students must adhere to the funding agency agreements. Students may be responsible to pay any unpaid fees.
  • Refunds to agencies utilizing federal funds shall be calculated in accordance with established federal return policies.
Methods of Refunds
  • Cash Payment: The student must complete the withdrawal form and request a refund. The business department will then issue a check that will be mailed to the student’s address of record within 30 working days.
  • Cashiers Check, Credit Card or Debit Card payment: The business department will verify payment was received on the cashiers check, credit card or debit card transaction prior to processing before any refund can be processed. Once payment has cleared the financial institution, a refund
    check will be mailed to the student’s address on record within 30 working days if paid by cashiers check or debit payment.
Students are responsible to ensure their correct address is on file to avoid any delays in receiving refunds.
