We understand that sometimes unexpected events occur that prevent our students from completing the remainder of the course, such as a family or medical emergency.
We will consider requests for course transfers/refunds in extenuating circumstances on a case-by-case basis. We may request sufficient evidentiary proof to verify your request.
