This institution shall not be obligated to pay any refund after all of the lessons and materials have been transmitted.
A notice of cancellation shall be in writing, and a withdrawal may be effectuated by the student’s written notice to the school administrative office (please visit Contact Page for address) or email sent to email@example.com or by the student’s conduct, including, but not necessarily limited to, a student’s lack of attendance.
The institution shall issue a refund for unearned institutional charges if the student cancels an enrollment agreement or withdraws during a period of attendance.

The institution shall pay refunds within 45 days of a student’s cancellation or withdrawal.

A pro rata refund pursuant to section 94910(c) or 94920(d) or 94927 of the code shall be no less than the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program provided subtracted from the amount paid by the student calculated as follows: The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
No refunds are due once the student has received 60% of the clock hours of instruction in any given period of attendance. For purposes of determining a refund, a student shall be considered to have withdrawn from an educational program when he or she withdraws or is deemed withdrawn in accordance with the withdrawal policy stated in this institution’s catalog.
