An 80% refund of the first year tuition will be granted if the student voluntarily withdraws from the program prior to the first day of school, is denied entry as a result of the required drug screen, criminal background check, or pre-enrollment physical.

The Program Director reserves the right to a two week period after letter submission to finalize student records.
