AYT Institute, Inc. will provide each student a copy of the school’s tuition plan and refund policy at the time of enrollment.
The Education Licensure Commission (ELC) shall approve each school’s refund policy only when it provides that the amount retained by the school does not exceed an amount calculated in accordance with the following standards:

  • The enrollment or registration fee shall be separately stated and the non-refundable portion shall either be twenty percent (20%) of the total cost of the course or fifty dollars ($50), whichever is less; Provided that this refund policy shall apply only after the seventy-two (72) hour period immediately following the signing has expired;
  • The school shall refund all monies paid in excess of the nonrefundable portion of the enrollment or registration fee when an enrolled student requests, in the manner provided in the contract, upon cancellation before the student’s scheduled classes begin
  •   If a student enters training and withdraws or is discontinued from training prior to completion of seventy-five percent (75%) of the scheduled program, the school shall refund to the student a sum which is the exact pro rata portion of tuition unexpended by the student, within five (5) dollars.

The prorated amount per section shall be determined by the ratio of the number of weeks or lessons in series of instruction completed by the student to the total number of weeks of instruction offered. Any portion of a week’s attendance by a student shall be considered a full week’s attendance for the purpose of this section. In the case of correspondence schools, any portion of a lesson in series shall be considered as a completed series. No school shall request or accept more than ten percent (10%) of the total tuition prior to commencement of the program or schedule.

AYT Institute, Inc. will keep adequate records to ensure that students, who delay in requesting a refund, are accommodated; Provided that the school is not required to honor a refund request submitted within ninety (90) days of the scheduled program for which the student was enrolled.
