Cancellation and Refund Policies
Federal Student Aid and Institutional Refund Policy
You may terminate your enrollment at any time.
You are entitled to a full refund of tuition and fees paid if you cancel your enrollment within three (3) business days after signing the enrollment agreement.
In the event that a student did not have the opportunity to tour the school before the commencement of classes, the student will have the opportunity to cancel their enrollment within three (3) business days after the program begins without penalty and with a full refund of all tuition and fees paid.
Refunds for cancellations will be issued by check within ten (10) days of cancellation.
If you withdraw from the program, for any reason which makes it impractical to complete the program, the following prorated refund will be calculated based on the payment period* using the last day of documented attendance:
- Four (4) days after you and the school sign the enrollment agreement up to the first day of classes: 100% refund of all tuition and fees.
- After the commencement of classes and have completed less than 60% of scheduled hours in the payment period: refund of tuition and fees will be calculated for the portion of the program’s payment period not completed.
- Completed 60% or more of the scheduled hours in the payment period: no refund of tuition will be returned.
- Refunds for withdrawal will be issued by check within thirty (30) calendar days after the effective date of withdrawal/termination.
*the percentage of the payment period completed is based on the number of clock hours the student was scheduled to complete in the period divided by the total number of clock hours in the program’s payment period.
GI Bill® Refund Policy:
