Animal Chiropractic 101 students who leave the course prior to completing the course will be considered a la carte CE students. Because rates are higher for CE credits this may result in student OWING money at their time of departure from the course rather than a refund of any remaining tuition even if they paid the full fees in advance. All disputes are actionable in Bosque County Texas. Venue and jurisdiction arising over this contract shall arise in Bosque County Texas.
1. Refund computations will be based on the period of enrollment computed on the basis of course time (clock hours), fees as a result of equipment, fees as a result of services provided to the
student. Equipment used during laboratory time but not retained by the student will be billed at a rental fee rate. Equipment retained by the student will be billed at full market price. Administrative fees apply.

the first 60 days following enrollment.

If the student fails to enter the seminar, withdraws, or is discontinued at any time before completion of the seminar, the student will be refunded the pro rata portion of tuition, fees, and other charges that the number of CE class hours remaining in the seminar at the CE tuition rate after the effective date of termination bears to the total number of class hours in the seminar. Online security fees will be billed from the date of enrollment to the date of termination.
