Terms & Conditions
A $300 deposit is required to hold your spot in a course – the remainder of the tuition is due at least 30 days prior to the course start date. The $300 deposit is nonrefundable and nontransferable, and is credited to the total tuition for the course. Confirmation letters, course outlines, required pre-study (if applicable), directions and lodging options will be sent when the $300 deposit has been received.
The deposit and tuition fees can be paid by check (payable to EquiLearn Institute), credit card or PayPal. There is a $30 service fee for all returned checks.
All course cancellation requests must be done in writing. Please email email@example.com to notify us of your cancellation. Refunds are only given (minus the $300 deposit) if cancellations are made at least 30 days before the start of the course. No money will be refunded if the student withdraws from the course within 30 days of the course start date. You may sell your spot to another individual (providing that person has met the course prerequisites) as long as you notify our office. You may not apply your cancelled tuition toward a future course. As a reminder, the $300 deposit is nonrefundable and nontransferable – no exceptions.
In the rare event that EquiLearn cancels a course due to natural disasters, instructor emergencies or other situations beyond our control, we will refund your $300 deposit and any monies paid toward the remainder of the tuition. If a course is cancelled due to insufficient registrations, we will notify you 28 days prior to the start date of the course and refund your full paid tuition, including the $300 deposit. Refunds are processed when a student has resolved all financial obligations against their school debts, if applicable. Refunds are processed within 14 days after the student’s account reflects a zero balance.
We suggest you wait to make your travel arrangements until 28 days before the course starts, or once the course has been confirmed as going forward. We cannot be held responsible for travel arrangements made before the 28 days, nor can we be held responsible for student travel expenses should the class be cancelled due to natural disasters or instructor emergencies. In the case of instructor emergency, we will substitute an appropriate instructor if possible before resorting to cancellation. We suggest you purchase travel insurance for travel arrangements in case of one of these rare incidents.
