POLICIES

 

FINANCIAL

Enrollment, registration, or attendance in any one course or class acknowledges all policies, conditions, rules, and regulations of the School as set forth on this official web site and constitutes acceptance of all such policies.

The School may at the discretion of the President modify the charges for any course or make any additional charges as deemed necessary to the successful completion of a degree or certificate program including assessments related to the incursion of additional faculty costs.

Students are not entitled to receive recommendations, degrees, honors, or transcripts of credit unless all accounts are current (including outstanding loans) and are not authorized to claim degrees, certifications, or training for any programs unless all accounts are paid in full.

All accounts more than 90 days past due will be deemed delinquent and may be submitted to a collection agency and/or to credit reporting agencies.  Students may contact the School’s Vice President, Administration for an extension of time or for payment terms but only if such accommodation is requested before the student account becomes delinquent.

A “Previous Term Billing Charge” in the amount of ten percent of any outstanding balance will be added to all student accounts that are delinquent from any previous trimester.  This billing charge will be added to a delinquent student account for each 3-month period that any portion of the account remains unpaid.  Interest on past due balances will be also added to the account balance at the rate of 1% of the outstanding balance per month.

An “Insufficient Funds Fee” of $35 per instance will be added to any outstanding balance in the event that the School’s bank or credit card processor is unable to process the payment for a student check or authorized credit card charge when submitted.

Students who withdraw their registration prior to the initial date of any course will be reimbursed the full amount of the tuition actually paid at the time of withdrawal less a $300.00 non-refundable deposit.  If a student has elected the installment payment option and has only paid the $300.00 deposit at the time of withdrawal, there will be no refund.

 

COLLECTIONS AND LEGAL ACTIONS

In the event of a delinquency or a default in the payment of any amount due or if the account is placed in the hands of an agency or attorney for collection or if legal action is taken to collect any amount due, the student agrees to pay an additional charge equal to all costs of collection including agency and attorney fees and court costs in addition to any judgment amount assessed against the student.  For any charge that is more than 90 days past due, the entire amount paid to that point is forfeited and not subject to any refund for any reason.

The student expressly agrees that all disputes involving the School shall be governed by the laws of the State of Wyoming applicable to contracts executed in that State, without regard to the conflict of laws principles thereof. Any suit, action or proceeding seeking to enforce any provision of, or based on any matter arising out of or in connection with, the agreement for the School to provide instruction to the student may be brought in any federal or state court located in the State and County in which School has its official headquarters, and each of the parties hereby consents to the jurisdiction of such courts and in any such suit, action or proceeding irrevocably waives, to the fullest extent permitted by law, any objection the venue. Process in any such suit, action or proceeding may be served on any party anywhere in the world, whether within or without the jurisdiction of any such court.

 

CREDENTIAL FRAUD

The School treats cases of credential fraud very seriously.  Examples include claiming to have earned a certificate or degree which has not been awarded by the School or claiming to have completed a certificate or diploma program offered by the School when not all of the requirements have been satisfied.  Possible actions the School may take against false claims regarding degrees, certification, or training include informing employers, professional organizations, or licensing bodies of the false credential claim.  Each student by registering for one or more classes authorizes the School to take any such actions to correct false claims at the sole discretion of the School with or without prior notice to the student making the false claim.

 

ENTIRE UNDERSTANDING

This description represents the entire understanding between the School and the student regarding tuition, refunds, and financial policies and no written or oral agreement, assumption, or other statement will, in any manner, alter the provisions unless mutually agreed upon in a writing signed by the School and the student.
