3. Cancellation Policy

If you decide to cancel your program with more than 60 days before the first day of classes, we will charge you a processing fee of 30% of the cost of your program. For cancellations made with 59 to 30 days before the start date of classes, we will charge you a 50% of the cost of your program as a cancellation fee. There is no refund for any cancellations made with less than 30 days prior to the start date of classes.

Students who start classes but do not finish the course will not be reimbursed under any circumstances.

If you do not want to lose your deposit and want to reschedule your program, you must fulfill the following two requirements:

  2. You must reschedule within one year of the first schedule date.
