Cancellation and Refund Policies

If he/she cancels their enrollment agreement prior to or on the first day of instruction, the student has a right to a full refund of all charges. In addition, a student may withdraw from a course after instruction has started and receive a prorated refund for the unused portion of the tuition and other refundable charges if the student has completed 60% or less of the instruction. The school will also refund money collected from a third party on the student’s behalf such as license or application fees.

All refunds will be paid within 30 days of written cancellation or withdrawal.
