Refund Policy

REFUND POLICY

Postsecondary schools and colleges in the State of New York are required to adopt and use a refund policy developed by the State when determining what refund, if any, a student is entitled to receive when he or she cancels their enrollment or withdraws from the institution. The refund policy below complies in all respects with the provisions required by the State of New York. A separate refund policy applies to students who are receiving veterans’ G.I. benefits to study.

A. A student who cancels his or her registration in writing within 7 days after signing the enrollment agreement will receive all monies paid except for the non-refundable registration fee.

B. In all other cases of withdrawal, whether the withdrawal is formally requested by the student or is administratively processed by the institution, a determination will be made as to whether the student is entitled to a refund of any of the tuition paid. A determination will also be made as to how much money, if any, is owed to the institution.

  • For students who formally withdraw from ETI by providing a written or verbal notice that they are cancelling their enrollment, the effective date of the withdrawal will be either the date specified by the student in the notice or the date on which ETI receives the written or verbal notification.
  • For students who fail to provide notice of their intent to withdraw from ETI but who stop attending classes, the effective date of the administrative withdrawal processed for them will be the last date on which ETI determines that the student attended any class.
  • For students who are dismissed from the program, the effective date of the administrative withdrawal will be the date the student was dismissed.

If a student withdraws or cancels enrollment during the first or second term of studies, ETI will keep the registration fee, the cost of any textbooks and supplies accepted by the student, and a percent of tuition as outlined on the following schedule:

If Withdrawal or Cancellation Occurs: The Institution Will Retain:
Prior to or during the first week of classes, (0%) of total program tuition
During the second week, (20%) of total program tuition
During the third week, (35%) of total program tuition
During the fourth week, (50%) of total program tuition
During the fifth week, (70%) of total program tuition
After the fifth week, (100%) of total program tuition 

 

If a student withdraws or cancels enrollment in the third term of studies or later, ETI will keep the registration fee, the cost of any textbooks and supplies accepted by the student, and a percent of tuition as outlined on the following schedule:

If Withdrawal or Cancellation Occurs: The Institution Will Retain:
Prior to or during the first week of classes, (20%) of total program tuition
During the second week, (35%) of total program tuition
During the third week, (50%) of total program tuition
During the fourth week, (70%) of total program tuition
After the fourth week, (100%) of total program tuition

 

ETI will only issue any refunds due to the parties or entities that directly submitted payments to the institution.

Students who, at the time of their withdrawal, have not paid the full amount of tuition that ETI is entitled to retain according to the above policy, are legally obligated to pay ETI any difference between the amount paid and the amount to be retained.

No academic transcript or verification of studies will be provided for any student who has an outstanding debt to the institution.
