CANCELLATION/REFUND POLICY

Citizens High School is confident you will be happy with your program. In the unlikely event, you should wish to discontinue, Citizens High School will refund your tuition according to the following refund policy which meets the refund policy published by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. You may request cancellation in any manner, but written request is recommended.

  • Refund Policy based on Per Course Price of $258 for a 16-week term for Online College or Career
  • Refund Policy based on Per Course Price of $198 for a 16-week term for Offline College or Career
  • Registration Fees are not refundable to students unless students withdraw during first 5 days after submission of the Enrollment Agreement.
  • CHS will refund 100% of any tuition received for any course not started by student (for online students, started means student accessed online course and there was faculty/student interaction; for Offline started means mailed CHS any module to be graded)
  • CHS will refund 100% of all monies received from a student during the first 5 days after submission of the Enrollment Agreement (including registration fee)

Total tuition will vary by student based on credits transferred in and the pace for completing courses.

CHS’s Total Tuition Charged is capped by the number of courses each student needs to take with CHS to graduate.

Maximum Tuition Cost per course is $258. If a student finishes the course faster than the 16-week window, CHS will only collect the payments for which the student has paid at time of completion or withdrawal.

For example, see the Total Tuition / Total Program Cost chart below which is in the CHS Student and Parent Handbook, Enrollment Agreement, and CHS’s Terms and Conditions for this respective program track:

Online Career 18 Credit, One-time, $129, non-refundable registration fee due to CHS with submission of Enrollment Agreement. Installments of $129 per month, Student Enrolled in 2 courses concurrently, Up to 16 weeks per Course from start date of the course, Cancel anytime, CHS will refund based on 16 week time based DEAC refund policy while not charging any additional monthly tuition charges past the month of withdrawal, students can extend any 16 week period by 4 weeks for an additional monthly $129 tuition charge and if still not finished after 4 weeks of extension, students will be put on Student Academic Progress (SAP) hold and must request in writing why any further extensions would be warranted, at which time CHS will evaluate on a case by case basis.

Note to Students: Initial Enrollment Dates of 29th, 30th or 31st of any month will generate subsequent monthly billing dates of the 28th.

CHS will refund the student based on Total Tuition and Registration Fees (Total Program Cost) from the Chart above (which is provided to students prior to enrollment and after transfer credits are accepted) and the start date of the respective courses at time of the withdrawal request.

CHS’s Refund Worksheet is completed with all refund requests. Most students will owe CHS a month’s tuition, which CHS reserves the right to collect or waive at time of withdrawal, because student monthly installments are in arrears of month of service. Most cases of CHS owing and issue refunds stem from the students that withdraws within the first 5 days or the students that have paid ahead. All refunds are mailed within 30 days. It is important to note that CHS follows the DEAC time-based refund policy percentages published for 16 weeks for full credit courses and 8 weeks for ½ credit courses.
