B. Accounts Due and Payable

Payment must be received prior to student enrolling classes. Students must clear their balance from previous semesters by May 29, 2016 in order to reserve a space for the following semester.
For late enrollment, school fees will be collected monthly only; any partial month will count as a full month.
If tuition cannot be paid in full, a monthly installment plan is available. Each payment must be paid by the 1st of each month; a $10 processing fee will be charged monthly. No late payment is allowed. Failure to promptly pay each month could result in enrollment cancellation.

C. Tuition and Dormitory Fees Refund Policy

All refund requests must be made in writing. A refund will be given only if a written request to cancel enrollment is received and approved by the school’s principal. Refunds will be prorated accordingly. A refund check (only for US banks) will be mailed within four weeks of receiving the cancellation request.
