STANDARD PAYMENT POLICY
Students must pay their tuition and fees as specified. Tuition payments by cash, check, money order or credit card are accepted. Final payment in the installment plan, however, should be paid in cash or money order only. Payment for certification examination should likewise be in money order unless otherwise arranged with the administration.
TEXTBOOKS AND SUPPLIES
Books are purchased through the school. Unopened books and unused supplies may be returned for refund based on the stipulated fees in the Enrollment Agreement.
* Books and other printed materials are subject to copyright laws. Photocopying of books and materials, unless authorized by the publisher, is not allowed.
Avid CNA School requires at least 10% down payment. Students have the option to pay the tuition fee in full or installment basis. No interest is charged for using the installment mode of payment. Other expenses are not included in the installment payment plans. Students with balances remaining in their accounts will not be allowed to take their final examinations until all fees have been paid. Final payments should be in the form of cash or money order.
Some employers give their employees a Tuition Reimbursement benefit based on certain criteria. Students must check with their employer if this type of benefit is available to them. Payment for educational expenses through this scheme may be done in 2 ways:
Direct Billing – Secure a letter from your employer authorizing and describing the conditions of the arrangement. Avid CNA School will issue an invoice to your employer for payment; employer sends the check directly to the school.
Reimbursement – Student will cover the educational cost on his/her own then receive reimbursement from the employer following the guidelines set by their company. It is assumed that students are responsible for any portion of the educational expenses and fees that are not paid by the employers.
By registering for classes, a student agrees to pay all tuition and required fees associated with his/her registration, optional services and other fees, whether paying in full or utilizing the installment payment option.
All fees must be paid in full prior to taking the final examination. Failure to pay tuition, fees and other charges before the final examination for the course may result in penalties and/or an automatic withdrawal from the program regardless of the time and work already accomplished for the course. Students will not be allowed to re-enroll in any course until all financial obligations have been settled. Student services and privileges may be withheld until all financial obligations have been settled.
