Refund after the commencement of classes:
1. Procedure for withdrawal/withdrawal date:
A. A student choosing to withdraw from the school after the commencement of classes is to provide written notice to the Director of the school. The notice is to indicate the expected last date of attendance and be signed and dated by the student.
B. For a student who is on authorized Leave of Absence, the withdraw date is the date the student was scheduled to return from the Leave and failed to do so.
C. A student will be determined to be withdrawn from the institution if the student has not attended any class for 30 consecutive class days.
D. All refunds will be issued within 30 days of the determination of the withdrawal date.
2. Tuition charges/refunds:
A. Before the beginning of classes, the student is entitled to a refund of 100% of the tuition (less the administrative/ registration fee of $200.00)
B. After the commencement of classes, the tuition refund (less the administrative/ registration fee of $200.00) amount shall be determined as follows:
|% of the clock hours attempted:||Tuition refund amount:|
|10% or less||90%|
|More than 10% and less than or equal to 20%||80%|
|More than 20% and less than or equal to 30%||70%|
|More than 30% and less than or equal to 40%||60%|
|More than 40% and less than or equal to 50%||50%|
|More than 50%||No Refund is required|
The percentage of the clock hours attempted is determined by dividing the total number of clock hours elapsed from the student’s start date to the student’s last day of attendance, by the total number of clock hours in the program.
Uniforms ($50.00) are not refundable at any time after they have been ordered.
Books & Supplies ($525.00) are not refundable after the commencement of classes begins.
Exam Fees ($175.00) are not refundable once the students application has been submitted to DANB (Dental Assisting National Board).
Refunds will be issued within 30 days of the date of student notification, or date of school determination (withdrawn due to absences or other criteria as specified in the school catalog), or in the case of a student not returning from an authorized Leave of Absence (LOA), within 30 days of the date the student was scheduled to return from the LOA and did not return.
