Financial Aid Disclosure

Holberton is not an accredited school and does not participate in state or federal financial aid programs (Title IV funding).

Scholarships may be available to qualified students throughout the year from outside organizations. It is the responsibility of the student to seek and complete any required information for obtaining a scholarship.

Cancellation & Refunds

Cancellation Policy

A full refund of all monies paid will be made: if an applicant is not accepted by the school; if an applicant cancels their Enrollment Agreement by notifying the school in writing within three days of enrollment, or within three days after visiting the school (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays); or in the event of school closure prior to the start of training. A full refund of any monies paid will be made if an applicant cancels their Enrollment Agreement prior to attending classes or does not commence training. All refunds will be made within 30 days from the date the Enrollment Agreement is canceled.

Refund Policy

The policy shall apply to student withdrawals and School initiated terminations. Students have the right to withdraw from a program of instruction at any time. For the purposes of determining the amount the student owes for the time attended, the student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the program when any of the following occurs:

a) Notify the School of withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal; or

b) the School terminates the enrollment; or

c) Students fail to attend any classes for ten (10) consecutive business days, excluding scheduled breaks of 5 or more calendar days.

The student’s refund calculation is based on the student’s current academic year’s enrollment cost, number of contracted calendar days, number of calendar days completed as determined by the last date of recorded attendance (excluding scheduled breaks of 5 or more calendar days and days that a student was on approved leaves of absence).

The refund calculation is a pro-rated refund policy based on the percent of contracted calendar days completed by the student, up to 60%. If the student attends 0 to 59.9% of the contracted calendar days - the tuition will be adjusted to a pro-rata amount. (Calculated by Number of actual calendar days completed divided by the total contracted calendar days) If the student attends 60% or more than the contracted calendar days, the student will owe 100% of tuition. Example: First-30 days withdrawal: For a student terminating training after entering school and starting the course of training but within the 30 days, a 100% of the tuition will be refunded. After the first 30 days: For a student terminating training after one week but within the first 25% of the academic year, the tuition retained by the school shall not exceed 25% of the contract price of the program plus $150.00. After 60%: A student completing more than 60% of the program’s academic year is not entitled to a refund of any tuition.

All refunds will be made within 30 days from the date of cancellation or withdrawal determination. The school may write off a credit balance less than $25.

Extraordinary Circumstances: In case of student prolonged illness or accident, death in the family, or other circumstances that make it impractical to complete the course, the school shall make a settlement which is reasonable and fair to both.
