Q       What is the refund policy?
 
A        Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools reserves the right to cancel or delay the opening of any credentialed program.  Reasons for cancellation or delay might include, but are not limited to, the number of students who have completed the registration requirements, and/or concerns regarding illness, safety, equipment, or construction, among other extenuating circumstances.  When the Adult Workforce Development Director decides that a program will be cancelled or postponed, the school will make every effort to notify registered students.  If Eastland-Fairfield Career & Technical Schools cancels or delays the start of a credentialed program, the school will refund all monies received for the cost of the program.
 
The amount charged for withdrawal from a full-time credentialed program is determined by the number of scheduled days enrolled.  After the tenth day that the class was scheduled to meet, students owe 100% of the program cost.  Prior to the eleventh day of scheduled class, the amount owed is shown in the following table.

Refunds of payments received by cash, check or money order will be paid by mailed check, to the payer of said payment.  Payments made by Visa or MasterCard will be refunded to the same Visa or MasterCard account.  Refunds will be processed within 45 days of withdrawal notification.
 
Withdrawal Policy
Non-attendance does not constitute an official withdrawal.  Students planning to withdraw must notify the Adult Workforce Development Office to complete a Program Withdrawal Form.  After withdrawal notification is received, the Billing Office will determine the account status based on the number of days the student was enrolled, payments received on the student’s account, and any student financial aid awarded.  Students with a balance owed to the school will be mailed an invoice within 30 days of the withdrawal notification.  Students with a credit balance will be refunded all monies owed according to the refund policy for full-time credentialed programs, and if applicable, in accordance with the Federal Return of Title IV regulations.  Note:  Withdrawn students who have borrowed federal student loan money must arrange a loan exit interview with the Financial Aid Administrator.
