REFUND POLICY: (1-a) If the institution has substantially failed to furnish the training program agreed upon in the Enrollment Agreement, the institution shall refund all the money the student has paid.
As used in NRS 394.449, “substantially failed to furnish” includes cancelling or changing a training program agreed upon in the enrollment agreement without:
(a) Offering the student a fair chance to complete the same program or another program with a demonstrated possibility of placement equal to or higher than the possibility of placement of the program in which the student is enrolled within approximately the same period at no additional cost; or
(b) Obtaining the written agreement of the student to the specified changes and a statement that the student is not being coerced or forced into accepting the changes, unless the cancellation or change of a program is in response to a change in the requirements to enter an occupation.
(1-b) If a student cancels his or her enrollment within three days of signing the Enrollment Agreement, the School shall refund 100% of the money the student has paid to the school. The process for cancellation is that the student notifies the Director, Registrar, or Student Services Coordinator of her/his intent to cancel either verbally or in writing via email, letter or WeChat.
(1-c) If a student cancels his or her enrollment before the start of the training program, the institution shall refund to the student all the money the student has paid, whichever is less, and if the institution is accredited by a regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education, the institution may also retain any amount paid as a nonrefundable deposit to secure a position in the program upon acceptance so long as the institution clearly disclosed to the applicant that the deposit was nonrefundable before the deposit was paid.
(1-d) If a student withdraws or is expelled by the institution after the start of the training program and before the completion of more than 60 percent of the program, the institution shall refund to the student a pro rata amount of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement, minus 10 percent of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement or $150, whichever is less.
(1-e) If a student withdraws or is expelled by the institution after completion of more than 60 percent of the training program, the institution is not required to refund the student any money and may charge the student the entire cost of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement.
2. If a refund is owed, the institution shall pay the refund to the person or entity who paid the tuition within 15 calendar days after the:
(a) Date of cancellation by the student of his or her enrollment;
(b) Date of termination by the institution of the enrollment of the student;
(c) Last day of an authorized leave of absence if a student fails to return after the period of authorized absence; or
(d) Last day of attendance of the student, whichever is applicable.
3. Books, educational supplies or equipment for individual use are not included in the policy for refund required by the above language, and a separate refund must be paid by the institution to the student if those items were separately paid for but not used by the student. Disputes must be resolved by the Director for refunds required by this policy on a case-by-case basis.
4. For the purposes of refund calculation:
(a) The period of a student’s attendance must be measured from the first day of instruction as set forth in the enrollment agreement through the student’s last day of actual attendance, regardless of absences.
(b) The period of time for a training program is the period set forth in the enrollment agreement.
(c) Tuition must be calculated using the tuition and fees set forth in the Enrollment Agreement and does not include books, educational supplies or equipment that is listed separately from the tuition and fees.
