Students have the right to a full refund of all charges (except for the application fee, registration fee and other non-refundable charges), if they cancel the agreement prior to, or on, the first day of instruction. Students dropping a course after classes have begun but before the ninth meeting or 60% of instruction will receive a pro-rated refund for the unused portion of the tuition and other refundable charges. Students who drop a class after the ninth meeting or 60% of instruction of the class will not be eligible for any tuition refund.
