Student Rights to Cancel

  • You have the right to cancel this agreement for educational services including any equipment and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. Business day means a day on which you were scheduled to attend a class. Cancellation occurs when you give a written notice of cancellation. You can do this by mail, in person, by FAX or telegram. The notice of cancellation, if mailed is effective when deposited in the mail, properly addressed with postage prepaid. This notice need not take any particular form; it needs only to state you wish to cancel the agreement. You will be given two notices of cancellation forms on the first day of class. If you cancel this agreement, the University will refund any money that you paid within 30 days after your notice is received. 
  • Students are advised that notification of withdrawal or cancellation must be made in writing. 
  • The Cancellation Notice must be addressed to:
ADMINISTRATION OFFICE
CALIFORNIA CENTRAL UNIVERSITY
23814 S. VERMONT AVE.
HARBOR CITY, CALIFORNIA, 90710
 
  • If the University has given you any equipment, you shall return the equipment within 30 days of the date you signed a cancellation notice. If you do not return this equipment within this 30-day period, the University may keep an amount out of what you paid that equals the cost of the equipment. The total amount charged for each item of equipment shall be separately stated. The amount charged for each item of equipment shall not exceed the equipment’s fair market value. The University shall have the burden of proof to establish the equipment’s fair market value. The University is required to refund any amount over that as provided above, and you may keep the equipment.
  • You have the right to withdraw from a program of instruction at any time. If you withdraw from the course of instruction after the cancellation period as in paragraph 1, the University will remit a refund less non-refundable registration fee and non-refundable STRF fee within 30 days following your withdrawal. You are obligated to pay only for educational services rendered and unreturned equipment. The refunds shall be the amount you paid for instruction multiplied by fraction, the numerator of which is the number of hours of instruction, which has not been received but for which you have paid, the denominator of which is the total number of hours of instruction from which you have paid. If you obtain equipment, as specified on the first page of this agreement, and return it in good condition within 30 days following the date of your withdrawal, the University shall refund the amount paid by you for the equipment. If you fail to return the equipment in good condition within 30 days, the University may retain the lesser amount of a prorated portion as described below (up to 60% of course completion) or documented cost of the listed equipment. You are liable for the amount, if any, by which the prorated or documented cost of the equipment exceeds the refund amount. If the amount you have paid is more than the amount that you owe, then a refund will be made within 30 days of your withdrawal. If the amount that you owe is more than the amount you paid, then you will have to make arrangements to pay it.
  • If the student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. 
  • If the student is eligible for a loan guaranteed by the federal or state government and the student defaults on the loan, both of the following may occur:(1) The federal or state government or a loan guarantee agency may take action against the student, including garnishing an income tax refund; and  =(2) The Student may not be eligible for any other government financial assistance at another institution until the loan is repaid. 
  • An Institution offering a distance educational program where the instruction is not offered in real time shall transmit the first lesson and any materials to any student within seven days after the institution accepts the student for admission.

The Student shall have the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and receive a full refund before the first lesson and materials are received. Cancellation is effective on the date written notice of cancellation is sent. The institution shall make the refund pursuant to section 7170 of the Regulations. If the institution sent the first lesson and materials before an effective cancellation notice was received, the institution shall make a refund within 45 days after the student's return of the materials.
