Daytime and Scheduled Distance Education Programs
Graduate School USA (GSUSA) will provide you with a complete refund, if a student cancels enrollment at least fourteen calendar (14) days prior to the start of the class. If a student cancels thirteen calendar (13) days or less prior to the class start date, GSUSA will allow the student to enroll in a future session of the scheduled class or transfer to another GSUSA course.
(If the future session or new course has a higher tuition, the student will be responsible for the difference in cost.)
If a student cancels a class less than thirteen calendar (13) days prior to the first day of that class, does not attend the class, or does not transfer to a future session or another course, no refund will be available.
To qualify for a refund:

• no lessons may have been submitted; and
• all books and materials must have been returned to, and received by, GSUSA in their original condition if the course materials were included as part of the tuition.
Refunds will not be made to any participant withdrawn from a course by GSUSA for failure to complete the course in the time allowed.
