Refund Policy

Holmes Institute Refund Policy

Students may withdraw from the program or a course at any time and in any manner. If a student cancels five days after signing the enrollment agreement, he/she receives a refund of all monies paid. If a student decides to withdraw from the course after five business days, but before the end of the academic term, the refund will be calculated as follows:

Percentage CompletedBy Student Percentage of TuitionReturned to the StudentMinus the Registration Fee Percentage of TuitionRetained by the Institution
Up to 10% 90% – $75 application fee and $200 program enrollment fee 10%
10% to 25% 75% –  $75 application fee and $200 program enrollment fee 25%
25% to 50% 50% –  $75 application fee and $200 program enrollment fee 50%
50% – 100% 0% 100%

All refunds are processed within 30 days of the withdrawal request. Example: if there are 10 lessons in a 3-credit hour distance education course and a student completes 1 lesson: 1 divided by 10 = 10% completed. Thus: $450.00 x .90 = $405.00 to be refunded. The one-time application fee ($75) and program enrollment fee ($200) are non-refundable.
