CANCELLATION & REFUND AGREEMENT NOTICE:
This agreement will be binding only when it has been fully completed, signed, and dated by the student and an authorized representative of the school prior to the time instruction begins.
CHANGES TO AGREEMENT NOTICE:
Any changes in the agreement will not be binding on either the student or the school unless such changes are acknowledged in writing by an authorized representative of the school and by the student, or student’s parent or guardian if he/she is a minor.
CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY:
- The school must refund all monies paid if the applicant is not accepted. This includes instances where a starting class is cancelled by the school.
- The school must refund all monies paid if the applicant cancels within five business days (excluding Sundays and holidays) after the day the contract is signed or an initial payment is made, as long as the applicant has not begun training.
- The school may retain an established registration fee equal to ten percent of the total tuition cost, or one hundred dollars, whichever is less, if the applicant cancels past the fifth business day after signing the contract or making an initial payment. A registration fee is any fee charged by a school to process student applications and establish a student record system.
- If training is terminated after the student enters classes, the school may retain the registration fee established under (3) of this subsection, plus a percentage of the total tuition as described in the following table:
- When calculating refunds, the official date of a student’s termination is the last day of recorded attendance:
a. When the school receives notice of the student’s intention to discontinue the training program; or,
b. When the student is terminated for a violation of a published school policy which provides for termination; or,
c. When a student, without notice, fails to attend classes for thirty calendar days.
- All refunds must be paid within thirty calendar days of the student’s official termination date.
VA REFUND POLICY:
Anvil Welding Instruction agrees that if a veteran student fails to enter the course, withdraws, or is discontinued at any time prior to completion of the course, the unused portion of paid tuition, fees, and other chargers will be refunded or the debt for such tuition, fees, and other charges will be canceled on a prorated basis, as follows:
- Registration fee. An established registration fee in an amount not to exceed $10 need not be subject to proration. Where the established registration fee is more than $10, the amount in excess of $10 will be subject to proration.
- Breakage fee. Where the school has a breakage fee, it may provide for the retention of only the exact amount of the breakage, with the remaining part, if any, to be refunded.
- Consumable instructional supplies. Where the school makes a separate charge for consumable instructional supplies, as distinguished from laboratory fees, the exact amount of the charges for supplies consumed may be retained but any remaining part must be refunded.
- Tuition and other charges. Where the school either has or adopts an established policy for the refund of the unused portion of tuition, fees, and other charges subject to proration, which is more favorable to the veteran or eligible person than the approximate pro rata basis as provided in this paragraph, such established policy will be applicable. Otherwise, the school may charge a sum which does not vary more than 10 percent from the exact pro rata portion of such tuition, fees, and other charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to its total length. The exact proration will be determined on the ratio of the number of days of instruction completed by the student to the total number of instructional days in the course.
- Prompt refund. In the event that the veteran, spouse, surviving spouse or child fails to enter the course, or withdraws, or is discontinued there from at any time prior to completion of the course, the unused portion of the tuition, fees and other charges paid by the individual shall be refunded promptly. Any institution which fails to forward any refund due within 40 days after such a change in status, shall be deemed, prima facie, to have failed to make a prompt refund, as required by this subparagraph.
- Books, supplies and equipment.
(a) The school will make a refund in full for the amount of the charge for un-issued books, supplies and equipment when:
- The school furnishes the books, supplies and equipment.
- The school includes their cost in the total charge payable to the school for the course.
- The veteran or eligible person withdraws or is discontinued before completing the course.
(b) The veteran or eligible person may dispose of issued items at his or her discretion even if they were included in the total charges payable to the school for the course.
