Tuition refund policy New Horizons Cancellation and Refund Policy
A full refund will be made to any student who cancels his/her Enrollment
Agreement within 72 hours (until midnight of the third day excluding
Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays) after the Enrollment Agreement is
signed. A full refund will also be made to any student who cancels enrollment
within the student’s first three scheduled class days, except that the school
may retain not more than $100 in any administrative fees charged, as well
as items of extra expense that are necessary tor the portion of the program
attended and stated separately on the Enrollment Agreement.
If a student cancels a program after the third scheduled day, or withdraws
or is discontinued therefrom at any time prior to program completion,
the amount of tuition refunded to a student will approximate the pro-rata
amount of unused tuition. Unused tuition will be based on scheduled course
time of program attendance through the effective date of termination
compared to the total scheduled course time for the entire program. Leaves
of absence, suspensions and school holidays will not be counted as part of
the scheduled program attendance.
The effective date of termination for refund purposes will be the earliest of
the following:
1. The last day of attendance, if the student is terminated by the school;
2. The date of receipt of written notice from the student; or
3. Ten school days following the last date of attendance.
Refunds for items of extra expense to the student, such as courseware, lab
technology fees, tools, or other supplies are to be handled separately from
refund of tuition and other academic fees. The student will not be required
to purchase courseware, lab technology, tools, or other instructional supplies
until such time as these materials are required. Once these materials are
purchased, no refund will be made. For full refunds. the school can withhold
costs for these types of items from the refund as long as they were necessary
for the portion of the program attended and separately stated in the
Enrollment Agreement. Any such items not required for the portion of the
program attended must be included in the refund.
All refunds shall be returned within 30 days after they are verified.
