Tuition/Fees Refund Policy
Students not accepted to the school are entitled to a refund of all moneys paid. Students who cancel their enrollment agreement by notifying the school within three (3) business days of signing the agreement and prior to entering classes are entitled to a full refund of all tuition and fees paid. Students, who withdraw after three (3) business days of signing the enrollment agreement, but before commencement of classes, are entitled to a full refund of all tuition and fees paid except the maximum cancellation charge of $150.00 or 25% of the enrollment agreement price, whichever is less. In the case of students withdrawing after the commencement of classes, the school will retain the cancellation charge and a percentage of tuition and fees, which is based on the percentage of contact hours attended. The refund is based on the last date of attendance.
|Student is entitled to upon withdrawal/termination||Refund|
|Within first 10% of program||90% less cancellation fee|
|After 10% but within first 25% of program||75% less cancellation fee|
|After 25 % but within first 59% of program||50% less cancellation fee|
|After 50% but within first 75% of program||25% less cancellation fee|
|After 75%||NO REFUND|
1. The student may cancel the enrollment agreement at any time prior to close of the third business day after signing the enrollment agreement and prior to entering classes.
2. All refunds will be made within 30 days from the date of termination/determination. The Date of Determination is based on non-attendance for a maximum of 14 consecutive calendar days. Because this training is time based, refunds will be calculated based on hours completed at the time of withdrawal*. The official date of termination or withdrawal of a student shall be determined in the following manner:
- The date on which the school receives notice of the student’s intention to discontinue the training program; or
- The date on which the student violates published school policy, which provides for termination or;
- Should a student fail to return from an approved Leave of Absence, the effective date of termination for a student on an extended Leave of absence or a Leave of absence is the earlier of the date the school determines the student is not returning or the day following the expected return date which is the start of the next term.
* The State of Colorado defines the time of withdrawal as the student’s Last Date of Attendance.
3. The student will receive a full refund of tuition & fees paid if the school discontinues a program/stand-alone course within a period of time a student could have reasonably completed it, except that this provision shall not apply in the event the school ceases operation.
4. The policy for granting credit for previous training shall not impact the refund policy.
5. Students who have not visited the school’s facility prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within three days following either the regularly scheduled orientation procedures or following a tour of the school’s facilities and inspection of equipment.
6. Complaints, which cannot be resolved by direct negotiation between the student and the school, may be filed on line with the Private Occupational School Board of the Colorado Department of Higher Education, at http://highered.colorado.gov/dpos, 303-862-3001. All student complaints submitted to the Division must be in writing and “shall be filed within two years after the student discontinues training at the school.”
A complete policy and procedure manual will be given to each student enrolled in a program.
Statement Regarding the Privacy Rights of Students
Notice is hereby given that the Colorado School of Healing Arts (CSHA) complies with the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, and regulations promulgated there under The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords eligible students with certain rights with respect to their education records. They are:
- The right to inspect and review the student’s educational records within 45 days of the day the School receives the request for access. A CSHA student should submit to the Business Office a written request that identifies the record he/she wishes to inspect. The registrar will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the record may be inspected. If the record to be inspected is not maintained by the registrar, the student will be advised of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed.
- The right to request amendment of the student’s educational records that the student believes are inaccurate or misleading. (This process cannot be used to challenge a grade.) A student should write to the registrar or other CSHA official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record he/she wants changed, and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If CSHA decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the student will be notified of the decision and advised of his/her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing.
- The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in a student’s educational records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. Disclosure without consent is granted to CSHA officials with legitimate educational interests. A CSHA official is a person employed by CSHA in an administrative, supervisory, academic, or support staff position or a student assisting another CSHA official in performing his/her tasks, i.e. a teaching assistant. A CSHA official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review a record in order to fulfill his/her professional responsibility.
- The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by CSHA to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the office that administers FERPA is:
Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Ave., S.W.
