Cancellation and Refund Policy
You may cancel enrollment prior to the starting date by giving written notice to UBI via postal mail, fax, or e-mail. If receipt of your cancellation notice occurs within 5 business days of UBI's receipt of the enrollment agreement, you will receive a 100% refund of all monies paid. If receipt of a cancellation notice occurs after 5 business days of receipt of the agreement, up to the first day of class(es), a refund will be given minus the registration fee. In lieu of forfeiture of the registration fee, you may request a one-time transfer of your registration to a future class if the request occurs at least 30 calendar days prior to the start of the cancelled class, and it must be applied to a class scheduled within one year of the cancelled class. However, if you cancel the second class, the registration fee will be forfeited. Once class(es) have begun, if you withdraw from class(es) prior to completion of 50% of the class, you may be entitled to a prorated refund depending on the day of withdrawal, minus the registration fee. Within 40 days after notification of such cancellation, withdrawal, termination, or completion, a written statement showing allowable charges and total payments received shall be delivered to the student by the school, together with a refund equal in amount to the monies paid to the school in excess of those allowable charges.
