Drop and Refund Policy

HSLDA Online Academy Drop and Refund Policy

Effective for all 2021–22 academic year course enrollments

Requesting to Drop a Course: A student who wishes to drop a course must make the drop request online via his or her student account. Once logged in, the student will find the name of the course to be dropped listed under “Current and previous course enrollments.” To drop a course, click the “drop this course” link beside the course name.

Refund Eligibility: A student who requests to drop a course will be eligible for a partial refund of course tuition up to the 15th calendar day of the semester when the course begins. After the 15th calendar day, no refunds are available. Tuition is nontransferable between courses and cannot be deferred to a later term.

For any drop requests submitted on or before the semester start date, the registrant will receive a refund of $125 less (per dropped course) than the original tuition amount paid. $125 of the tuition for each course is non-refundable.

For any drop requests submitted from the second day of the semester through the 15th calendar day of the semester, the registrant will receive a 60% refund of the original tuition amount paid.

Please note that the drop and refund policy for SAT® Prep Genius and Essay Writing Workshop is different than our normal drop and refund policy listed above.

SAT® Prep Genius Drop and Refund policy: For any drop requests submitted by the 15th calendar day of the course, the registrant will receive a $100 refund. No tuition refunds will be offered after the 15th calendar day of the course.

Essay Writing Workshop Drop and Refund policy: For any drop requests submitted by the 15th calendar day of the course, the registrant will receive a $50 refund. No tuition refunds will be offered after the 15th calendar day of the course.

Please be aware that the drop period for yearlong courses is aligned with the fall-semester drop period. If a student withdraws from a yearlong course after the fall drop period ends, but before the spring semester begins, please know that the student will not receive a prorated refund for the spring semester.

Drop and Refund Processing: When a student’s drop request is being processed, the student and his or her parent(s) will receive an email confirming that the request has been received, along with a statement of the total amount to be refunded (if applicable). In the event that there is a refund, HSLDA will credit the original purchaser’s credit card account (to refund credit card tuition payments) or send the refund via check to the person who originally purchased the course (to refund check tuition payments). Refunds for credit card tuition paid more than 120 days prior to the refund date cannot be processed via credit and will also be sent via check. Please allow up to 30 days for the payment to be sent or processed.

Section Changes: The last day to request a section change is the 15th calendar day of the course.

Course cancellation: In the event that HSLDA Online Academy must cancel a scheduled course, all registered students will receive a full refund of the tuition for that course. If the cancelled course is the only course in which a student is enrolled during a given academic year, the registration fee will also be refunded. Please note that this is the only occasion when the registration fee is refundable.

Section cancellation: HSLDA Online Academy strives to keep courses affordable while providing quality, Christian instructors and curriculum. In order to achieve this balance, it is necessary for a minimum number of students to enroll in each individual class section. If the number of enrollments does not reach the minimum for an individual class section, HSLDA Online Academy reserves the right to cancel the section. During those instances, HSLDA Online Academy will make every effort to accommodate impacted students by transferring them to another section of the same course, as closely aligned with their original live class meeting time as is feasible. HSLDA Online Academy communicates these changes via email to students and parents as quickly as is administratively possible.
