Refund Policy

 If Tuition is paid in full prior to class start, the following refund policy applies:

A full refund of paid tuition and fees (except application fee) will be issued if Cohutta Healing Arts Institute, Inc. receives written notice of cancellation within 3 business days of signing the student contract.

If a student withdraws before half of the term is completed, he/she is eligible to receive a prorated refund of their paid tuition.  Only tuition is eligible for refund once the first term has begun as the fees have been used to purchase the instructional items and to pay for services that are non-refundable.

Prorated tuition refund is based upon the portion of the program completed at the time of written request of withdrawal.  The prorated tuition refund schedule is as follows:

Student is entitled to upon withdrawal/termination Refund
Within first 10% of program 95% of Tuition Paid
After 10% but within first 25% of program 75% of Tuition Paid
After 25% but within first 50% of program 50% of Tuition Paid
After 50% No Refund Available

After the completion of 50% or more of the program, the student is not entitled to a refund.

All refunds shall be made within 30 days of the date of withdraw as determined by the receipt of the written request of withdrawal.


If Tuition is financed, the following policies apply:

Student is responsible for payment of the following upon withdrawal/termination: Payment
Within first 10% of program 5% of Tuition
After 10% but within first 25% of program 25% of Tuition
After 25% but within first 50% of program 50% of Tuition
After 50% 100% of Tuition

Should the student finance tuition for a duration longer than the total class term, all payments will be due and payable according to the schedule above.

In the event of injury, illness or other extenuating circumstance that makes completing the program impossible, Cohutta Healing Arts Institute, Inc. will allow the student to retain all hours earned in the quarters completed and resume at the beginning of the incomplete quarter. Any additional costs for student insurance, books, supplies or changes in tuition rates are the responsibility of the student.  The student must complete all required quarters of instruction within a period of 3 calendar years from the start date of their first quarter.
