I/We understand and agree to pay court costs, attorney fees and a 50% (fifty percent) collection fee on any outstanding balances over (30) thirty days past due. I/We also agree to pay 2% interest per month on any outstanding balances over (30) days past due. Refund will be issued in 30 days. A letter of intent to withdraw must be received by the school President.
Refund after the commencement of classes:
1. Procedure for withdrawal/withdrawal date: A student choosing to withdraw from the school after the commencement of classes is to provide written notice to the Registrar or the Director of the school. The notice is to indicate the expected last date of attendance and be signed and dated by the student. For a student who is on authorized Leave of Absence, the withdraw date is the date the student was scheduled to return from the Leave and failed to do so.
2. Tuition Charges: Tuition charges for the enrollment period (not to exceed 12 months) will be determined based upon the student’s last day of attendance and the resulting percentage of the enrollment period completed. The percentage of the enrollment period completed is determined by dividing the total number of weeks elapsed from the student’s start date to the last day of attendance, by the total number of weeks in the enrollment period. Tuition charges and refund amounts for the enrollment period are determined by % of clocked hours:
(1) If the student completes 10% or less, the school may keep 10% of the tuition charged and will refund 90%.
(2) If the student completes more than 10% and up to 20%, the school may keep 20% of the tuition charged and will refund 80%.
(3) If the student completes more than 20% and up to 30%, the school may keep 30% of the tuition charged and will refund 70%.
(4) If the student completes more than 30% and up to 40%, the school may keep 40% of the tuition charged and will refund 60%.
(5) If the student completes more than 40% and up to 50%, the school may keep 50% of the tuition charged and will refund 50%.
(6) If the student completes more than 50% the school may keep 100% of the tuition charged, and no refund is due.
3. Books and Supplies: There is no refund for scrubs, equipment, books, printed material, and supplies.
4. Special Cases: In case of prolonged illness or accident, death in the family, or other circumstances that make it impractical for the student to complete the program, the school may make a settlement, which is reasonable and fair.
