DEFINITIONS

 


 

STUDENT’S RIGHT TO CANCEL
In order to be eligible for a refund students attending Sutech School of Vocational and Technical Training must meet criteria that is outlined in our Refund Policy detailed below:

A student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a refund to the paying entity of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later.  If a student is rejected for training or if a course is canceled, the paying entity will receive a refund of all monies paid within 45 days.  A Student may withdraw from school at any time and the paying entity will receive a refund of any paid but unused tuition.  If a Student withdraws or is suspended or expelled after the aforementioned 7 day period for cancellation, all tuition and fees (i.e., educational costs), less a registration fee not to exceed $75 shall be refunded on a pro-rata basis. Cancellation shall occur when you provide notice to the institution. Notice must be provided in writing form in person or by mail at 3455 E. Olympic Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90023; or by fax (323) 262-0459; phone or email notice will not be accepted.

If the Student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of moneys not paid from federal student financial aid program funds.
The college shall refund 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges, less the registration fee or unreturned books/materials fee not to exceed seven hundred fifty dollars ($750), if notice of cancellation is made through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh class day after enrollment, whichever is later.

The college also provides a pro-rata refund policy for the return of unearned institutional charges if the student cancels an enrollment agreement or withdraws during a period of attendance and has completed 60 percent or less of the period of attendance in their program.

The pro rata refund shall be no less than the total amount owed by the student for the portion of the educational program provided subtracted from the amount paid by the student or the paying entity, calculated as follows:
(1) The amount owed equals the daily charge for the program (total institutional charge, divided by the number of days or hours in the program), multiplied by the number of days student attended, or was scheduled to attend, prior to withdrawal.
(2) Except as provided for in subdivision (3), all amounts paid by the student in excess of what is owed as calculated in subdivision (1) shall be refunded.
(3) Except as provided herein, all amounts that the student or the paying entity has paid shall be subject to refund excluding the seventy five dollar ($75.00) registration fee, Student Tuition Recovery Fund fee, and any unreturned/used books, supplies or equipment.  This non-refundable amount shall not total more than seven hundred and fifty dollars ($750.00).  Books, supplies and equipment are considered non-refundable once they have been opened or used.

 

 

If the school has collected money from a student for transmittal on the student's behalf to a third party for a bond, library usage, or fees for a license, application, or examination and the institution has not paid the money to the third party at the time of the student's withdrawal or cancellation, the institution shall refund the money to the student within 45 days of the student's withdrawal or cancellation.

The school shall refund any credit balance on the student's account within 45 days after the date of the student's completion of, or withdrawal from, their educational program in which they were enrolled.  For purposes of this section "day" means calendar day.

If you, the student, defaults on a federal or state loan, both of the following may occur:

 

“YOU MAY ASSERT AGAINST THE HOLDER OF THE PROMISSORY NOTE YOU SIGNED IN ORDER TO FINANCE THE COST OF THE EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM ALL OF THE CLAIMS AND DEFENSES THAT YOU COULD ASSERT AGAINST THIS INSTITUTION, UP TO THE AMOUNT YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID UNDER THE PROMISSORY NOTE”
