The student shall have the right to cancel the agreement and receive a full refund before the first lesson and materials are received or the 5th business day after enrollment, whichever is later. Cancellation is effective on the date the written notice of cancellation is made by the student. The withdrawal date is determined with the student providing a written notification to the school. The institution shall make the refund as per the calculation consistent with the Florida Administrative Code. Refunds shall be made within 30 days of the date that the institution determines the date of determination that the student has canceled or withdrawn (regardless if the institution delivered the first lesson and materials before an effective cancellation notice was received).
In the event the institution does not accept the enrollment, a full refund of all monies will be made to the applicant. An applicant may cancel his/her enrollment within five (5) business days from the student signing of this enrollment agreement and all monies paid by an applicant (less non-refundable fees paid) will be refunded. An applicant subsequently requesting cancellation of enrollment prior to the class starting date shall be entitled to refund of all monies paid (less non-refundable fees paid). All monies due to the applicant will be refunded within 30 days of the date of determination from the cancellation.
The refund policy for students who have started attending and who have completed up to sixty (60) percent of the period of attendance (semester) will result in a pro rata refund computed on the number of hours completed to the total semester hours. The institution shall pay or credit refunds within 30 days of the date of determination of a student’s cancellation or withdrawal.
No refunds are due once the student has attended sixty (60) percent or more of their semester credit hours in any given period of attendance. For purposes of determining a refund, a student shall be considered to have withdrawn from an educational program when he or she withdraws or is deemed withdrawn by the date of determination and in accordance with the withdrawal policy stated in the institution’s catalog.
If an institution has collected money from a student for transmittal on the student’s behalf to a third party for a bond, library usage, or fees for a license, application, or examination and the institution has not paid the money to the third party at the time of the student’s withdrawal or cancellation, the institution shall refund the money to the student within 30 days of the date of determination of the student’s withdrawal or cancellation.
This institution shall refund any credit balance on the student’s account within 30 days of the date of determination after the date of the student’s completion by means of completing all courses required in the student’s program of study, or by withdrawal from the educational program in which the student was enrolled.
Please see the example below. This example shows a student who started and completed the first semester of classes and then dropped during the second semester after completing 53% of the semester.
According to the refund completion chart, the student was charged 100% tuition for the first semester and 80% of the tuition (20% refund according to the chart) for the second semester.
To calculate the second semester charges, take 13 hours attempted x $302.63 = $3,934.19; 80% (20% refund as per the chart below) Tuition of $3,934.19 is $3,147.35. In this example, the student would receive a refund of $2,721.07.
