Estimated Cost of Living (Optional)
In order to better prepare for your expenses while studying at Calstone College, we estimated the following:
Students must either pay tuition and applicable fees or have other financial arrangements in place 2 weeks prior to the start of each term. Students who anticipate difficulty adhering to these deadlines should contact the bursar‘s office immediately. Students who are not current on their payment plan or per course basis prior to the first day of instruction may not register for courses.Additional late fees may incur.
Students with a valid e-mail address receive monthly courtesy e-mail reminders prior to payment deadlines.
Methods of Payment
Students can pay their tuition by check or Credit Cards (Visa or Master Card only).
Returned Check Policy
The returned check fee is $40.
Cash-Only Policy for Returned Check Writers
Any person who has more than two checks returned unpaid to the school is placed on a cash-only basis (i.e., cash, credit card, cashier‘s check, or money order) for all future transactions. A letter will be mailed to the current mailing/billing address on file if this threshold is met, and no future checks will be accepted. The Office of the Bursar is not responsible for delivery of mail or the accuracy of the address on file.
After the start of a term, students who have an unpaid balance may have a hold placed on their records and course work at the sole discretion of Calstone College. At the conclusion of a term, students who have an unpaid balance may have a hold placed on their records and course work at the sole discretion of Calstone College.
Bursar hold prevents a student from registering for any future term until the outstanding balance is paid; the hold does not remove the student from current classes. If a student with a bursar hold has withdrawn, and then seeks readmission to Calstone College, the hold must be satisfied prior to readmission. Once the outstanding balance is paid, the hold can be removed by contacting the bursar‘s office.
Methods of payment include all approved payment arrangements, payment plans, guaranteed financial aid, and third-party sponsorship.
Failure to settle financial obligations with Calstone College could affect registration, enrollment, financial aid, campus services, and release of Academic transcripts.
Students failing to pay tuition and applicable fees greater than $350 within 45 calendar days past the due date will be financially suspended from the program.
Financial suspension results in the loss of all Academic and student services, as the student is effectively withdrawn from Calstone College.
Students who have been financially suspended and want to be reinstated in the same term must contact the bursar and arrange for payment by the last business day of the term.
Students who have been financially suspended and do not reinstate during the same term must follow the Reinstatement Policy found in the Academic section of this catalog.
Refund Policy for Veterans Only
The refund of the unused portion of tuition, fees, and other charges for Veterans or eligible persons who fail to enter a course or withdraw or discontinue prior to completion will be made for all amounts paid which exceed the approximate pro rata portion of the total charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to the total length of the course. The proration will be determined on the ratio of the number of days or hour of instruction completed by the student to the total number of instructional days or hours in the course.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
Student's Right to Cancel
The student has the right to cancel this Agreement, excluding any tools and services included in the Agreement, and receive a refund of 100 percent of the amount paid for institutional charges, less a reasonable deposit or registration and application fee not to exceed two hundred ($200) and ($250) for international students, if requested in writing. The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later.
Cancellation shall occur when the student gives written notice of cancellation at the address of the School shown on the top of the first page of the Enrollment Agreement. The student must give the Notice of Cancellation in writing. The cancellation will not be valid if made via telephone, fax or mail.
You are due a complete refund within 45 days after Calstone College receives a valid written Notice of Cancellation in writing.
The institutional refund policy for students who have completed 60 percent or less of the course of instruction shall be a pro rata refund.
Withdrawal from Course
A student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a refund of charges through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. The institutional refund policy for students who have completed 60 percent or less of the course of instruction shall be a pro rata refund. If the student withdraw from the course of instruction after the period allowed for cancellation of the Agreement, which is until midnight of the first business day following the first class he/she attended, the School will remit a refund less a registration fee, if applicable, not to exceed $250.00 within thirty days following your withdrawal. The student is obligated to pay only for educational services rendered and for unreturned equipment. The refund shall be the amount the student paid for instruction multiplied by fraction, the numerator of which is the number of hours of instruction which he/she has not received but for which he/she has paid, and the denominator of which is the total number of hours of instruction for which he/she has paid.
IF THE AMOUNT THE STUDENT HAS PAID IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THAT HE/SHE OWE FOR THE TIME HE/SHE ATTENDED, THEN A REFUND WILL BE MADE WITHIN FORTY- FIVE DAYS OF WITHDRAWAL. IF THE AMOUNT THAT HE/SHE OWES IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THAT HE/SHE HAS ALREADY PAID, THEN THE STUDENT WILL HAVE TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO PAY FOR IT.
Students whose entire tuition and fees are paid by a third party organization are not eligible for a refund, therefore the Payer is the only and sole person eligible for a refund.
Hypothetical Refund Example
Assume that a student, upon enrollment in a 300 hour course, pays $6,000 for tuition, $200 for registration and $150, documented cost to the school, for equipment as specified in the Enrollment Agreement and withdraws after completing 100 hours without returning the equipment he/she obtained.
The pro rata refund to the student would be $3,650 based upon the calculations stated below. If the student returns the equipment in good condition within seven  days (1 week) following his/her withdrawal, the School shall refund the charge for the equipment paid by the student.
*If the student returns the equipment in good condition, allowing for reasonable wear and tear,
the actual refund to the student would be $4,100 [$3,950 + $150].
Refund Table (Based on Actual Cost of Educational Service):
For the purpose of determining the amount a student owes for the time he/she attended, he/she shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the course when any of the following occurs:
He/she notifies the School of his/her withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal.
The School terminates his/her enrollment.
The student fails to attend classes for a three (3) week period. In this case, the date of withdrawal shall be deemed to be the last date of recorded attendance.
If any portion of the student tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan, then the refund will be sent to the lender or to the agency that guaranteed the loan, if any. Any remaining amount of refund will first be used to repay any student financial aid programs from which he/she received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received.
Any remaining amount will be paid to the student. If there is a balance due, the student will be responsible to pay that amount.
