Refunds for items of extra expense to the student, including instructional supplies, books, laboratory fees, service charges, rentals, deposits, and all other such ancillary miscellaneous charges, will be made within 30 days after the effective date of enrollment termination if these items are stated separately and shown as part of the data furnished to the student before enrollment.
A full refund of all tuition and fees is due and refundable in each of the following cases:
- When an enrollee is not accepted by the school
- If the course of instruction is discontinued by the school at this location
- If the student's enrollment was procured as a result of any misrepresentation in advertising, promotional materials of the school, or misrepresentation by the owner or representation of the school
Refunds shall be completed within 30 days after the effective date of termination.
