ACCLAIM EDUCATION has the following refund policy.
A student has the right to cancel 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, a student also has the right to stop school at any time, and any student has the right to receive a pro-rata refund if he/she has completed 60% or less of the scheduled hours in his/her program through the last day of attendance. 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.
Cancellation of a program may occur when the student mails or delivers a written notice of cancellation to The Coding Forum at the school’s main address. If the notice is mailed, cancellation is effective as of the date of the notice’s postmark.
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.
If the Enrollment Agreement is timely cancelled, then the school will refund the student any money he/she has paid, within 60 days after the notice of cancellation is received.
For the purpose of determining a refund under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a program of instruction when any of the following occurs:
The student notifies the school of his/her withdrawal.
The school terminates the student’s enrollment for failure to maintain satisfactory progress, failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the school, excessive absences, and/or failure to meet financial obligations to the school.
The student has failed to attend classes for four consecutive school days.
The student fails to return from a leave of absence.
To determine the refund amount, the date of the student’s withdrawal shall be deemed to be the last date of recorded attendance. The amount owed equals the hourly charge for the program (total institutional charge divided by the number of hours in the program), multiplied by the number of hours scheduled to attend prior to withdrawal. To determine when the refund must be paid, the student shall be deemed to have withdrawn at the end of one week (seven consecutive calendar days).
