What is your refund policy?  If a learner wishes to withdraw from a course and receive a refund, an official written request must be received by the Workforce Development/ Continuing Education Department by noon, no fewer than seven calendar days prior to the first class session. Requests may be submitted in person, via mail, email, or fax. Telephone notification without a written request will not suffice. All pre-paid fees will be refunded if the learner withdraws appropriately within this timeframe. If the learner withdraws after the cancellation deadline, no refund will be granted. Failure to attend class and/or stop payment of a check does not constitute an official withdrawal, and collection of all fees based on original course registration as well as any applicable returned check fees will be required in all such circumstances. There is a $20 charge for returned checks, including, but not limited to, “stop payment”.

What if I cannot attend a course as planned?  If you need to withdraw from a class, you must notify us at (757)789-7979/by mail at 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410 at least 7 full days before the class starts to be eligible for a refund / receive a refund.  

When there is low enrollment are classes cancelled?  In most cases we require at least number students for a class to run. You will be notified by email or telephone if your class is cancelled. The college name reserves the right to cancel classes with insufficient enrollment.  
If we have to cancel your class, you can request a full refund of your tuition or transfer to another course of your choice, space permitting.
