I originally signed up for classes at this institution, but had to back out ( not at the last second either ). This school claims to have a very strict refund policy. If you are REGISTERED for a class, then you can't have a refund. The admissions rep removed me from classes, so I was literally in limbo, no classes on the agenda. When I asked for the refund, the school simply turned me down, claiming that they don't return funds after you have registered. Even if you are not registered for any classes at all, they will still keep your check. Be aware that if you have a family emergency, relocate, end up in the hospital, this school will not refund your money whatsoever. They will offer you a 2 year time period of credit. I'd give them the 3rd degree about their policies, before you attempt to sign on for any classes. This doesn't pertain to most students, who are in fact, able to sign up and take a class as usual. This pertains to those, who have ANYTHING come up that would get in the way of attending class. I'm currently in dispute with the Better Business Bureau against this school.
