Education Refund Policy

EAP classes are held based on projected attendance therefore once a student registers, there are no refunds.  However, there are a few exceptions to this policy.

  • If class is cancelled or postponed by EAP, EAP will issue refunds in the case that the new date is not suitable for the student.
  • If an extreme circumstance arises for the student, such as a death in the immediate family, severe illness, etc., a refund will be processed.  A decision will be made on a case-by-case basis by the executive director. 
  • EAP will allow a company to substitute a student (e.g. change the registrant to someone else in the company) without penalty.
