REFUND POLICY AND MISC. FEES:
Note fee and refund schedule is as follows:
1. You are obligated to pay only for educational services rendered and for unreturned equipment
2. Registration Fee ($75.00) and Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF, varies per program) is not refundable.
3. Program tuition fee balance is due at the beginning of the last term of didactic instruction. Financial obligations must be accomplished to avoid delay on clinical externship rotation.
4. A student has the right to withdraw from this program of instruction up to the 60 percent point of the course, and receive a prorated refund of tuition and amounts paid for equipment. If the student withdraws from the program of instruction after the expiration date of the time for canceling this agreement, the student is obligated to pay only for educational services rendered and any equipment not returned. For example, if a student enrolls in a 140 hour program and withdraws after receiving 50 hours of instruction, and if the student paid a $75.00 registration fee $5.00 STRF and $2,420 tuition, the school would deduct the $75.00 registration fee and $5.00 STRF from the amount received, divide the remaining $2,420 by the number of hours in the program (2420 / 140 = 17.29) and multiply that hourly amount times the number of hours received by the student (50 x 17.29 = $864.50) The amount paid, in excess of that amount would be the amount of the refund. ($2,420 - $864.50 = $1555.5 Refund Amount)
5. In addition, the refund would include any amount paid for equipment, which is subsequently returned in good condition. For the purpose of determining the amount you owe for the time you attended, you shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the course when any of the following occurs:
A. You notify the school of your withdrawal or the date of withdrawal
B. The school terminates your enrollment
C. You fail to attend class for more than three (3) consecutive “unauthorized” class days without applying for leave of absence. Withdrawal will be deemed the last date of recorded attendance.
6. If any of your tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan, then the refund will be sent to the lender or the agency that guaranteed the loan if any. Any remaining amount of refund will first be used to repay any student financial aid programs from which you received benefits in proportion to the amount of the benefits received. Any remaining amount will be paid to you. If there is a balance due, you will be responsible to pay that amount.
