College Admission Portal Refund Policy
Effective Date: 14/08/23
Thank you for using our College Admission Portal. We understand that circumstances can change, and we are committed to providing a fair and transparent refund policy for our users. This refund policy outlines the terms and conditions under which refunds will be granted for various services offered through our College Admission Portal. Please read this policy carefully before making any transactions.
1. Application Fee:
The application fee paid during the submission of an application for admission is non-refundable. This fee covers administrative costs associated with processing applications and cannot be refunded under any circumstances.
2. Testing Fees:
Fees paid for standardized tests (such as SAT, ACT, TOEFL, etc.) are managed and processed by the respective testing agencies. Refund policies for these fees are determined by the testing agencies and not the College Admission Portal. Users are advised to review the refund policies of the testing agencies before making any payments.
3. Admission Deposit:
If an admitted applicant submits an enrollment deposit to secure a spot but later decides not to enroll, the admission deposit is non-refundable. This deposit is intended to confirm the student’s intention to join the college and secure their place in the incoming class.
4. Tuition and Fee Payments:
Refunds for tuition and other fees paid for courses or services offered through the College Admission Portal are subject to the following conditions:
- Withdrawal Before the Start of the Term: A full refund of tuition and fees will be issued if a student withdraws from a course or service before the official start of the term.
- Withdrawal After the Start of the Term: Refunds for withdrawal after the start of the term will be prorated based on the date of withdrawal. A portion of the tuition and fees may be refunded based on the percentage of the term completed by the student. Some administrative and processing fees may be non-refundable.
- Refund Process: To initiate a refund, users must submit a formal request through the College Admission Portal’s designated refund request process. This may include providing relevant documentation for verification purposes.
5. Special Circumstances:
In cases of documented medical emergencies, unforeseen personal circumstances, or administrative errors, the College Admission Portal may consider providing exceptions to the refund policy on a case-by-case basis.
6. Refund Timeline:
Refunds will be processed within [X] business days from the date the refund request is approved. The refund will be issued through the same payment method used for the original transaction.
7. Contact Information:
