Cancellation and Refund Policy

For Online Certificate in Funeral Directing

Note: A full refund will be made to any student who cancels the enrollment contract within 72 hours (until midnight of the third day excluding Saturdays, Sundays and legal holidays) after the enrollment contact is signed.

Refund Policy

  • Refund computations will be based on the number of lessons in the program
  • The effective date of termination for refund purposes will be the earliest of the following:
    1. the date of notification to the student if the student is terminated;
    2. the date of receipt of written notice from the student; or
    3. the end of the third calendar month following the month in which the student’s last lesson assignment was received unless notification has been received from the student that he wishes to remain enrolled
  • If tuition and fees are collected before any lessons have been completed, and if, after expiration of the 72-hour cancellation privilege, the student fails to begin the program, not more than $100 shall be retained by Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service.
  • If the student who enters an asynchronous distance education course terminates or withdraws after the expiration of the 72-hour cancellation privilege, Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service may retain $100 of the tuition and fees and the minimum refund policy must provide that the student will be refunded the pro rata portion of the remaining tuition, fees, and other charges that the number of lessons completed and serviced by the school or college bears to the total number of lessons in the program.
  • A full refund of all tuition and fees is due in each of the following cases:
    1. an enrollee is not accepted by Commonwealth Institute of Funeral Service
    2. if the program of instruction is discontinued by the school and this prevents the student from completing the program; or
    3. if the student’s enrollment was procured as a result of any misrepresentation in advertising, promotional materials of the school, or misrepresentations by the owner or representatives of the school.
  • Refunds will be totally consummated within 60 days after the effective date of termination.
