Cancellation and Refund Rights

The Student has a right to cancel their contract for school and receive a full refund less the non-refundable registration fee of $50 up to and including the first class day of instruction.

Cancellation is done by written cancellation and must be received at the school no later than the first class day of instruction. Cancellation must be done by written notice and it need take any form but need only state that the student wishes to cancel their contract for enrollment. The student will receive a refund of any tuition paid less the non-refundable registration fee of $50 within 30 days of cancellation.


If a student drops or withdraws from the course, the student will receive a pro-rate refund, less the non-refundable registration fee of $50, for all tuition paid for which instruction was not received up to 60% completion point of the course. Students who drop or withdraw from the course after the 60% completion point are not eligible for refund. Students show do not show up for class and who do not cancel their contract will be deemed as having withdrawn on the first class day and will be charged the non-refundable fee of $50. Refunds will be calculated and sent to the student within 30 days of dropping or withdrawing from the class. Absences are counted as attempted hours for purpose of calculating refunds.


Example Refund Calculation

The following is an example of how the instruction will calculate a refund. The refund is based upon a student attempting 15 hours of instruction and pre-paying $300.


1. Total Cost: $400 - $50 (non-fundable registration fee) =$300

2. Divide %595 by 40 to find the cost per hour of instruction = $7.29 per hour

3. Multiply the amount in line 2 times the total hours attempted ($7.29 X 15 hours = $109.38)

This is the amount of tuition earned by the institution.

4. Subtract the amount in line 3 from the amount the student has paid, minus the non-refundable registration fee $50. If the total amount is a positive number, this is the amount to be refunded to the student. If the total amount is a negative number, this is the amount the student still owes for the instruction.

   $300(paid) - $50(registration fee) = $250 - $109.38 (tuition earned) = $140.62

(Refund owed to the student)

5. Any refund on tuition paid by third party, will be refunded to the third party and not student.
