Refund Policy for VA Benefits

Pro-Rata Refund Policy [3676(c)(13)] – A non-accredited institution must provide a Pro-Rata Refund policy for veterans. That is, the veteran will be reimbursed tuition and fees (above $10.00) based on the ratio of remaining days of instruction to total days of instruction.
