READ AND INITIAL REFUND POLICY
REFUND POLICY - RESIDENT SECTION
When the student attends Resident Training, ESI's Tuition Payment Policy is not to execute a charge to the student until he or she has completed 11 days of training in the case of Executive Protection or Protective Intelligence. Whether the student pays by Credit Card or Cash, ESI will not charge the card or deposit currency until the student has completed 75% of the course. In the event that the student decides to cancel prior to completion, Refund Policy will apply according the percentage of the course completed, but the Refund will be paid immediately.
For the mandatory resident portion of the course, the following applies as a minimum policy: After the student attends the first resident class session, if the student requests cancellation in writing or is terminated, the school shall be entitled to a tuition charge which shall not exceed the following:
Postponement of a starting date for the Resident Training component, 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 Act of 1981.
To protect the integrity of our program, ESI reserves the right to discontinue a student's training if that student fails to maintain ESI's standards of conduct or achievement level. In such a case, refunds will be made according to the Tuition Protection Agreement.
REFUND POLICY - DISTANCE EDUCATION SECTION
An enrollment may be canceled by an applicant student within five (5) calendar days after midnight of the day on which the enrollment agreement is signed. An applicant student requesting cancellation in whatever manner within this time must be given a refund of all money paid to the school or its representatives.
From five (5) calendar days after midnight of the day on which the enrollment agreement is signed and until the time the student requests cancellation up to 30 days from the date of course shipment, the student shall be given a refund of all monies paid to ESI, less a cancellation charge of $100, plus cost of books and syllabi.
If the student is not accepted by the school, a full refund will by paid to the student. If ESI fails to provide the educational service subscribed to by the student, a full refund will be paid within 30 days of termination of the course discontinuation. Credit for previous training or work experience will not alter the refund policy. The refund policy will apply to academic equivalency credit which will depend upon the percentage of courses received and paid for by the student.
After the student is enrolled and until he or she has received 75% of the Distance Education Program, the school will follow a refund policy based upon the percentage of courses received. Termination will be determined by student's notification to the school in writing of their intent to terminate the program. The student has 30 days from shipping date to reject the course in writing and thereby cancel from the program. A calculation of Refunds will be made on the basis of courses received and any Refunds due will be paid within 30 days of termination. If the student requests cancellation, the school will be entitled to a charge which shall not exceed the following:
This Tuition Protection Agreement limits your obligation to only a fraction of the tuition until you have actually received at least 75% of the program. If student chooses to reject course materials mailed to him, that will constitute cancellation. Package must be returned within 30 days of postmark on package. ESI reserves the right to make changes in the training program when necessary. However, those changes will not add tuition cost to the student for the term of the contract.
For Veterans who are eligible to pay for the tuition from VA Educational Benefit plans are protected by this Refund Agreement until the student has received 100% of the training program. If the Veteran student who is paying for the tuition through VA Educational Benefits, cancels after receipt of 85% of the training in terms of courses, the VA student will be responsible for 85% of the contract price for Distance Education and all other fees charged. If the Veteran student receives 95% of the courses, the VA student will be responsible for 95% of the contract price for Distance Education and all other fees charged. No refund will be due after receipt of 100% of the Program.
