    REGISTRATION FEE AND REFUND POLICY

    No money will be accepted from student until it is determined that all entry requisites have been met. The registration fee and all money paid by an applicant will be refunded if requested within (3) days of signing an agreement. For veterans only, $15.00 of the registration fee will be prorated by hours attended over total program hours. An enrollee may interrupt or terminate training by submitting written statement to the school's admission office. The tool kit, once issued, is not subject to refund.

    An applicant requesting termination of training shall be charged on an exact prorate of the portion of the course completed . The exact prorating shall be determined of the ratio of the number of hours of instruction completed by the students to the total number of instruction hours in the course. When termination occurs due to prolonged illness, death in the family, or other special cases beyond the control of the student, the school will adjust the refund policy to be fair and equitable to both parties. The student's last day of attendance shall be deemed the last date of termination. Tuition refunds will be paid within 30 days or termination.

    The school does not offer private loans that must be paid after a student graduates. The school does offer a tuition payment plan that includes installments prorated to assure that the student has completely paid for the entire program before the last day of school. Students must be paid in full to receive their graduation records. When a student drops or is expelled, federal financial aid received must be prorated and the unearned grants or loans must be paid back to the government using required government calculations. If a loan was accepted, part of the loan may be kept according to the calculations and must be paid back by the student. Students who do not graduate must also pay the school for any remaining school balance: tool kit cost and earned tuition to date left.
