IMPORTANT SCHOOL DISCLOSURES

**You must pay the state-imposed assessment for the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) if all of the following applies to you: 1. You are a CA. resident and prepays all or part of your tuition either by cash, guaranteed student loans or personal loans, and 2. Your total charges are not paid by any third-party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay the third party. You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment if either of the following applies: 1. You are not a CA resident.  2. Your total charges are paid by a third party, such as an employer, government program or other payer, and you have not separate agreement to repay the third party. STRF rate is $.50 per $1000 of tuition rounded up/down to the nearest $1,000.

The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by CA. residents who were students attending certain schools regulated by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education. You may be eligible for STRF if you are a CA resident, prepaid tuition, paid STRF assessment and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following: 1. The school closed before the course of instruction was completed 2. The school’s failure to pay refunds or charges on behalf of a student to a third party for license fees, or other purpose, or to provide equipment or materials for which a charge was collected within 180 days before the closure of the school. 3. The school’s failure to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federally guaranteed student loan program as required by law or to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the school prior to closure in excess of tuition and other cost 4.There was a material failure to comply with the Act of this Division within 30 days prior to closure, the period determined by the Bureau. 5. An inability after diligent efforts to prosecute, prove, and collect on a judgment against the institution for a violation of the Act.
The Student Tuition Recovery Fee (STRF) is non-refundable through attendance at the first class session or the (7th) seventh day  after enrollment, whichever is later.

NOTE: As of January 15, 2015 the State has discontinued collection of STRF. It may be reinstated at a future date.

Extra Instruction Charges:  As a courtesy to students, two extra weeks are added to the expected graduation date based on their contracted schedule to cover unexpected absences, requiring the student to need more time to complete the required hours and operations, without assessing additional charges. The two-week (2) courtesy period covers all absences, including those due to illness, court dates, jury duty or any other extended period of absence for any reason (including suspension for violation of school rules) except for absence due to an approved Leave of Absence. Students who do not meet the calculated scheduled date of completion will be assessed an extra tuition charge of $10 per hour over the scheduled hours of attendance needed to complete the course requirements.

Transfer Students: $8.00 to $12.00 (depending upon chosen course) per clock hour of remaining hours, plus the registration fee of $75. PLEASE NOTE: We do not normally accept transfer students who have completed ½ or more of the course hours at another school, however, upon approval by the owner, exceptions may be made on an individual evaluation basis.

PAYMENT METHODS:

  • Contracted Enrollment between the student and another retraining program
  • Personalized Payment Plans with the school
  • Other private loan agencies, personal student loans or scholarships that offer this type of assistance or Federal Student Loan or Grant for qualified programs and student eligibility

All tuition and fees are payable in advance, prior to commencing classes, unless other arrangements are made with the school and contracted in the Enrollment Agreement, i.e. a deposit is made then equal monthly payments are made with tuition paid by end of last class; or, if applying for a private loan or Federal Student Aid, (subject to qualifications and eligible classes) then prior to starting class the student will have completed a FAFSA on line at www.fafsa.ed.gov to determine eligibility. Students applying for Federal Student Aid may be asked to pay for their equipment kit and applicable fees in advance to the start of the first class, which may then be reimbursed from available funds upon receipt of first disbursement. Consult with the Registrar for specific payment options.
