STUDENT’S RIGHT TO CANCEL

1.     You have the right to cancel your agreement for a program of instruction, without any penalty or obligations, through attendance at the first class session or the seventh calendar day after enrollment, whichever is later.   After the end of the cancellation period, you also have the right to stop school at any time; and you have the right to receive a pro rata refund if you have completed 60 percent or less of the scheduled hours in the current payment period in your program through the last day of attendance. 

2.     Cancellation may occur when the student provides a written notice of cancellation at the following address:  785 Market Street, Suite 900, San Francisco, CA 94103.  This can be done by mail or by hand delivery.

3. The written notice of cancellation, if sent by mail, is effective when deposited in the mail properly addressed with proper postage.

4. The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form and, however expressed, it is effective if it shows that the student no longer wishes to be bound by the Enrollment Agreement. 

5. If the Enrollment Agreement is cancelled, the school will refund the student any money he/she paid, less a registration fee not to exceed $250.00 and less any deduction for equipment not returned in good condition within 45 days after the notice of cancellation is received.

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE PROGRAM

You may withdraw from the school at any time after the cancellation period (described above) and receive a pro rata refund if you have completed 60 percent or less of the scheduled hours in the current payment period in your program through the last day of attendance.  The refund will be less a registration fee not to exceed $250.00.  If the student has completed more than 60% of the period of attendance for which the student was charged, the tuition is considered earned and the student will receive no refund. 

For the purpose of determining a refund under this section, a student may be deemed to have withdrawn from a program of instruction when any of the following occurs:

·      The student notifies the institution of the student’s withdrawal or as of the date of the student’s withdrawal, whichever is later.

·      The institution terminates the student’s enrollment for failure to maintain satisfactory progress; failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the institution; absences in excess of maximum set forth by the institution; and/or failure to meet financial obligations to the School.

For the purpose of determining the amount of the refund, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed the last date of recorded attendance.  The amount owed equals the hourly charge for the program (total institutional charge, minus non-refundable fees, divided by the number of hours in the program), multiplied by the number of hours scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.  For programs beyond the current “payment period,” if you withdraw prior to the next payment period, all charges collected for the next period will be refunded.

If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan.  Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student.  If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of moneys not paid from federal student financial aid program funds.  

REFUND POLICY FOR INTRODUCTORY CLASSES

Cancellations must be received in writing at least 72 hours prior to the start of the scheduled class to avoid penalty.
