Refund Policy

Refund During Cancellation Period

A student is allowed to cancel an agreement for a course of instruction and obtain a refund of charges paid (less the non-refundable $100 application fee and the STRF contribution) through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later, including any equipment or other goods and services included in the agreement. The student is advised that a notice of cancellation shall be in writing, and that a withdrawal will be effectuated by the student’s written notice or by the student’s conduct, including but not necessarily limited to, a student’s lack of attendance. If mailed in, the cancellation note becomes effective as of the postmark if properly addressed with proper postage.

Refund After Cancellation Period

If a student withdraws after seven (7) business days where the first day is the first day class was attended, the student is entitled to only a partial refund. The student has the right to withdraw from school at any time and receive a refund for that part of the course not taken, for which the student has paid. The amount of that refund is to be “100% pro-rated” which means that the student is refunded for all classes paid for but not taken after the point of last date of attendance (LDA) from the course. The refund is to be paid within thirty (30) days of withdrawal and a refund notice is to be sent to the student.

Refund Example

The following is an example of refunds and amounts. The 20-Week Intensive English Course costs $2000 and meets for 400 clock hours. There is no special equipment for this course. There is an additional $100 non-refundable charge for materials.There is an additional $100 non-refundable application fee. If the student has paid for the course in full ($2000) and withdraws after completing 200 hours of instruction, or 50% of the course, the student will receive 50% of the tuition as a refund ($1000).

Tuition Payment                                         

A $100 non-refundable Application Fee is due 4 weeks prior to the course start date (later when applications are accepted less than a month prior to course start date). The tuition is due in full on the first day of the course. Students may not pay in payments and failure to pay tuition on the first day of the class will result in exclusion from the class until tuition is paid.  Transworld Schools treats all students fairly and equitably relative to tuition, other charges, and refunds.
