Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools
Refunds will be provided within 30 days of termination date provided the following conditions are satisfied. Termination date is the date the school receives written or verbal notice of a student’s intention to terminate or cancel his/her enrollment, or the date on which the student violates the published attendance policy.
For all courses and programs, Kaplan will pay a full refund of all tuition and fees paid by a prospective student if: (1) a prospective student is not accepted by Kaplan; (2) for classroom courses and programs, within three days after initial payment a student notifies Kaplan of his or her intention to terminate the enrollment, provided that training has not started; (3) for correspondence courses and programs, within three days after initial payment a student notifies Kaplan of his or her intention to terminate the enrollment; or (4) Kaplan discontinues a course during the period of time within which a student could reasonably have completed the course as defined in the Standard of Progress above. Refunds called for by provision (4) shall not apply in the event that the school ceases operation.
For classroom courses and programs, Kaplan will pay a full refund of tuition and fees paid less a cancellation charge (not to exceed $150) of 20% of the tuition for the course(s) the student is terminating when terminated more than 3 days after the date of enrollment but before training has started. “Training” for correspondence courses and programs commences on the date of enrollment, so refund requests made more than 3 days after date of enrollment for correspondence courses are subject to the policy below.
For refund requests and terminations made more than 3 days after initial enrollment or after training has commenced, Kaplan will retain a cancellation charge of 20% of the tuition (but not to exceed $150.00) for all courses and then pay a refund based on the following policies. Note that this cancellation charge does not apply to the full refund conditions described above, or to refunds under the Veterans Refund Policy set forth separately below. The refund percentages described here shall be applied to full tuition and fees actually paid by the student after deducting the cancellation charge, and not to books. If a student discontinues training or is terminated by Kaplan, the following refund will be made to the student within 30 days of official determination of the termination date (the date on which Kaplan receives written or verbal notice of a student’s intention to discontinue training, or the date on which the student violates the published attendance policy). Refunds will be calculated as follows:
A student terminating training…
is entitled to a refund of…
Within first 10% of program
90%refund less cancellation charge
After 10% but within 25% of program
75% refund less cancellation charge
After 25% but within 50% of program
50% refund less cancellation charge
After 50% but within 75% of program
25% refund less cancellation charge
After 75% completed
Completion percentages will be determined by the number of classroom sessions attended, the number of correspondence lesson quizzes returned (if applicable), or the number of correspondence lessons that should have been completed beginning on the date of initial payment, according to the “lessons per week” standard shown for the satisfactory standards progress described above.
For continuing education courses, after three days from enrollment students will not receive a refund but students will be given credit toward another course of the student’s choosing. Credit can be used for up to one year from the date of enrollment. Books and materials provided for all courses and programs must be returned to Kaplan before any refund can be issued and are not separately refundable. However, if a student cancels and fails to return the course materials, the cost of these materials will be deducted from the total refund given to the student. The charge for books and materials will be based on the tuition fee charged for the equivalent self-study (correspondence) material. No refund is made for shipping or tax charges. Any materials which cannot be re-used will not be refunded. Retail books purchased from our bookstore that have not been opened or used may be returned for a full refund for up to 30 days from the date of purchase.
Postponement of a starting date, whether at the request of the school or the student, requires a written agreement signed by the student and the school. The agreement must set forth: (a) Whether the postponement is for the convenience of the school or the student, and (b) A deadline for the new start date, beyond which the start date will not be postponed. If the course is not commenced, or the student fails to attend by the new start date set forth in the agreement, the student will be entitled to an appropriate refund of prepaid tuition and fees within 30 days of the deadline of the new start date set forth in the agreement, determined in accordance with the school’s refund policy and all applicable laws and rules concerning the Private Occupational Education Act of 1981. Kaplan policies for granting credit for previous training, if applicable, shall not affect this refund policy.
