In accordance to NRS 394.449 our refund policy is as follows:
NRS 394.449 Requirements of policy for refunds by institutions.
1. Each postsecondary educational institution shall have a policy for refunds which at least provides: (a) That if the institution has substantially failed to furnish the training program agreed upon in the enrollment agreement, the institution shall refund to a student all the money the student has paid.
(b) That if a student cancels his or her enrollment before the start of the training program, the institution shall refund to the student all the money the student has paid, minus 10 percent of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement or $150, whichever is less.
(c) That if a student withdraws or is expelled by the institution after the start of the training program and before the completion of more than 60 percent of the program, the institution shall refund to the student a pro rata amount of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement, minus 10 percent of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement or $150, whichever is less.
(d) That if a student withdraws or is expelled by the institution after completion of more than 60 percent of the training program, the institution is not required to refund the student any money and may charge the student the entire cost of the tuition agreed upon in the enrollment agreement.
2. If a refund is owed pursuant to subsection 1, the institution shall pay the refund to the person or entity who paid the tuition within 15 calendar days after the:
(a) Date of cancellation by a student of his or her enrollment;
(b) Date of termination by the institution of the enrollment of a student;
(c) Last day of an authorized leave of absence if a student fails to return after the period of authorized absence; or
(d) Last day of attendance of a student, whichever is applicable.
3. Books, educational supplies or equipment for individual use are not included in the policy for refund required by subsection 1, and a separate refund must be paid by the institution to the student if those items were not used by the student. Disputes must be resolved by the Administrator for refunds required by this subsection on a case-by-case basis.
4. For the purposes of this section:
(a) The period of a student’s attendance must be measured from the first day of instruction as set forth in the enrollment agreement through the student’s last day of actual attendance, regardless of absences.
(b) The period of time for a training program is the period set forth in the enrollment agreement.
(c) Tuition must be calculated using the tuition and fees set forth in the enrollment agreement and does not include books, educational supplies or equipment that is listed separately from the tuition and fees.
● EMT – $147.50 ● AEMT – $147.50
Students may cancel their enrollment by the end of the first class session and receive a full refund of all monies paid, less the non-refundable registration fee, not to exceed $147.50 for the EMT course or $147.50 for the AEMT course. Refunds are calculated on a prorated basis as specified in the NRS listed above.
Refunds will be pro-rated to the last date of instruction. Class withdrawals must be made in writing by letter or email. No refunds of any kind will be issued for withdrawals, drop-outs or no shows after attending 60% of the course. IMPORTANT: If you drop-out, are terminated (for any reason), or decide not to attend class, you are responsible for and legally liable for any unpaid balance you owe to the school.
*Any Student Account balances left unpaid by the end of the program, without other payment arrangements with the Training Center, will be turned over to a collection agency. This will affect your credit in a negative manner as well as affect future employment in fields that perform pre-employment background checks.
TUITION BALANCES UNPAID BY DUE DATE There will be a late fee applied to the student’s account for tuition balances that are unpaid by the due date. The late fee is 7% of the tuition balance and will be applied the day after the due date and again each month until the tuition is paid in full. The due date is calculated by counting forward the appropriate weeks from the start date of the course. The due date is given on the first day of class and follows these guidelines:
EMT/AEMT Course Tuition Due Standard 26 Week Course 8th Week
Semi-Accelerated 20 Week Course 6th Week
Accelerated 13 Week Course 5th Week
8 Week Course 4th Week
TUITION RECOVERY FUND Nevada law requires that a fee of $4.00 be assessed from each student upon enrollment for support of the Nevada Student Tuition Recovery Fund. This fund was established by the Nevada Legislature to reimburse students who might otherwise experience a financial loss as a result of untimely school closure. The fund is administered by the Nevada Commission on Postsecondary Education. Institutional participation is mandatory.
Students should keep a copy of their enrollment agreement, any promissory note, tuition receipts and cancelled checks if needed to determine the amount of tuition paid. Students should also keep any records indicating the percentage of the program that has been completed in the event the student needs to substantiate a claim for reimbursement from that fund.
