Refund and Cancellation Policy

If for any reason a student discontinues his or her studies, the university has established this liberal cancellation and refund policy for the student’s protection. A student may terminate enrollment at any time by notifying the university in any manner (in writing is preferred).

Address:
Harrison Middleton University
1105 East Broadway Road
Tempe, AZ 85282

Website: www.hmu.edu
Telephone: 1.877.248.6724
Facsimile: 1.800.762.1622

If Harrison Middleton University is notified of cancellation within five (5) calendar days after the day on which the enrollment agreement is accepted, an applicant requesting cancellation in writing within this time will be given a refund of all money paid to Harrison Middleton University.

From five (5) calendar days after the day on which the enrollment agreement is accepted and until the time the university receives the first completed lesson assignment from the student, upon cancellation, the university is entitled to a registration fee of $75.00 or 20% of tuition, whichever amount is higher, not to exceed $200.00.

After the university receives the first completed lesson assignment and until the student completes half of the course, if the student requests cancellation, the school shall be entitled to retain the registration fee and a charge which shall not exceed the following:

     a) Up to and including completion of the first 10% of the course, 10% of the tuition after deducting the registration fee.

     b) After completing more than 10% of the course and up to and including completion of 25% of the course, 25% of the tuition  
     after deducting the registration fee.

     c) After completing more than 25% of the course and up to and including completion of 50% of the course, 50% of the tuition
     after deducting the registration fee.

If the student completes more than half of the course, the university shall be entitled to retain the total course tuition.

If a student is enrolled in an interest-free tuition payment plan, the refund is calculated on a course basis. The total course price is based on a per-credit hour basis. Any courses in the program which have not been started will result in a full refund. The amount per credit hour, on a program enrollment, is a pro-rata calculation of the total program cost divided by the number of credits in the program.

Sample Refund Calculation for the First Course in the Program

Student A enrolls in the HUM 701 course on January 1. This is the student's first course in the program and the student pays a $200 enrollment fee, a $150 technology fee, and the full tuition amount of $1400.00. On February 1st the student requests cancellation from the program. The student has submitted two completed lesson assignments and has completed 33% of the course. The policy is the following:

After the university receives the first completed lesson assignment and until the student completes half of the course, if the student requests cancellation, the school shall be entitled to the registration fee and charge which shall not exceed the following:

c) After completing more than 25% of the course and up to and including completion of 50% of the course, 50% of the tuition after deducting the registration fee.

$200 enrollment fee + $150 technology fee+ $1400.00 tuition paid = $1750.00 – $200.00 registration fee = $1550.00

50% of $1550.00 = $775.00

Harrison Middleton University charges the student the registration fee of $200.00 and 50% of the remaining tuition ($775.00). The total cost to the student is $995.00.

The remainder is refunded to the student. $1750.00 total paid - $995.00 = $775.00 is refunded to the student.

Sample Refund Calculation for Subsequent Courses in the Program

Student B enrolls in the HUM 705 course on January 1, and pays the full tuition amount of $1400.00. On February 1st the student requests cancellation from the program. The student has submitted two completed lesson assignments and has completed 33% of the course. The policy is the following:

After the university receives the first completed lesson assignment and until the student completes half of the course, if the student requests cancellation, the school shall be entitled to the registration fee and charge which shall not exceed the following:

c) After completing more than 25% of the course and up to and including completion of 50% of the course, 50% of the tuition after deducting the registration fee.

$1400.00 tuition paid x 50% = $700.00

Harrison Middleton University charges the student 50% of the tuition ($700.00). The remainder is refunded to the student.

$1400.00 total paid - $700.00 = $700.00 is refunded to the student.
