Financial Obligations
All financial obligations are the student's responsibility and must be met according to the fees schedule. All payments must be in the form of a money order or cashier's check. Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.

 
Refund Policy
Delaware Institute of Health Sciences refund policy has been prepared according to the requirements of the Delaware Department of Education Certification Guidelines. The student is responsible for the tuition and fees stated herein. With that understanding, the refund shall be defined as the return of money, cancellation of obligation or otherwise extinction of the debt and the following policy shall prevail:

The registration & examination fees are non-refundable. However, registration fees can be transferred to another class within a three (3) month period.
 
Students should inform Delaware Institute of Health Sciences immediately of a decision to withdraw prior to the start of classes. After classes start, a student withdrawing from the school must complete an official withdrawal form and obtain the Program Coordinator's signature. A student will receive full tuition refund paid by the student if:
 
 1. The student cancels the enrollment agreement or contract within 72 hours (until midnight of the 3rd day excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays) after the enrollment contract is signed by the prospective student;
   
 2. The enrollment of the student was procured as the result of any misrepresentation in advertising, promotional materials of the school or representations by the owner or representative of the school.
   
  b. In the event the student, after expiration of the 72-hour cancellation privilege, fails to enter the course, or withdraws or is discontinued therefrom at any time prior to completion, and such policy must provide:
   
 1. Refunds for courses will be based on the period of enrollment computed on the basis of course time expressed in clock hours;
   
 2. The effective date of the termination for refund purposes will be the earliest of the following:
   
  (A) The last date of attendance, if the school terminates the student;
  (B) The date of receipt of written notice from the student;
  (C) Ten school days following the last date of attendance;
   
 3. If tuition is collected in advance of entrance, and if, after expiration of the 72-hour cancellation privilege, the student does not enter the school, not more than $100 shall be retained by the school;
   
 4. For the student who enters a school course of not more than 12 months in length terminates or withdraws, the school may retain $100 of tuition and fees and the minimum refund of the remaining tuition will be:
   
  (A) After 0.01 percent enrollment time of the course, 80 percent of the remaining tuition;
  (B) After 5 percent to 9.9 percent enrollment time of the course, 70 percent of the remaining
tuition;
  (C) After 10 percent to 14.9 percent enrollment time of the course, 60 percent of the remaining tuition;
  (D) After 15 percent to 24.9 percent enrollment time of the course, 55 percent of the remaining tuition;
  (E) After 25 percent to 49.9 percent enrollment time of the course, 30 percent of the remaining tuition;
  (F) After 50 percent or more enrollment time of the course, the student may be considered obligated for the full tuition;
   
Enrollment time is the time elapsed between the actual starting date and the date of the student's last day of physical attendance in the school;
   
 5. For courses more than 12 months in length, the refund shall be applied to each 12-month period, or part thereof, separately;
   
 6. Refunds of items of extra expense to the student, such as instructional supplies, books, student activities, laboratory fees and service charges, where these items are separately stated and shown in the data furnished the student before enrollment, will be made in a reasonable manner acceptable to the administrator;

 11. In cases of termination or withdrawal after the student has begun the correspondence course, the school may retain $50 of tuition and fees, and the minimum refund policy must provide that the student will be refunded the pro rata portion of the remaining tuition fees and other charges that the number of lessons completed and serviced by the school bears to the total number of lessons in the course;
