Causes for Dismissal & Conditions for Readmission/Refund:
Termination by Student:
Live Classes: Ten paid students are required when the instructor must travel to an area outside the home office(Kitsap County). No refunds will be given for students who fail to attend scheduled training.
Correspondence Classes: Because students have the ability to download the material from the official school web site, and do not pay until they submit their exam and evaluation for grading, no refund will be provided.
On-Line Classes: An administrative fee of 5% will be charged to students who terminate within 10 days of purchase. A 25% administrative fee will be charged to students who terminate within 30 days of purchase. No refund shall be provided after 30 days.
Termination by School:
The Basics & Beyond Real Estate Institute reserve the right to terminate a student’s enrollment for non-payment or for failure to complete the course within 6 months or failure to abide by the school’s conduct policies including, but not limited to, use of illicit drugs, drinking of alcoholic beverages, disruptive behavior, excessive tardiness or insufficient progress as evidenced by failure to complete assigned work.
In the event of a prolonged illness or other personal situations beyond the student’s control, a refund may be made which is reasonable and fair, provided the student provides a written request within 30 days of enrollment. Students may also be granted re-admission if course is not completed with 6 months on a case-by-case basis. This policy is subject to change as deemed appropriate by the primary school for on-line courses.
