Drop and Refund Policy

HSLDA Online Academy Drop and Refund Policy

Effective for all 2017–18 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 previus course enrollments” and may 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 tenth business day of the semester when the course begins. After the tenth business day, no refunds are available. Tuition is nontransferable between courses and cannot be deferred to a later term. The $25 registration fee is non-refundable.

For any drop requests submitted on or before the semester start date, the registrant will receive a refund of $100 less (per dropped course) than the original tuition amount paid. $100 of the tuition for each course is non-refundable (in addition to the $25 registration fee).

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

2017–18 Academic Year Refund Eligibility Deadlines:

Monday, August 28, 2017 Fall-Semester Start Date: last day to drop a fall-semester or yearlong course for a refund of the tuition amount minus $100.
Monday, September 11, 2017 End of Fall Add/Drop Period (tenth business day of semester): last day to drop a fall-semester or yearlong course for a 60% tuition refund.
Monday, January 8, 2018 Spring-Semester Start Date: last day to drop a spring-semester course for a refund of the tuition amount minus $100.
Monday, January 22, 2018 End of Spring Add/Drop Period (tenth business day of semester): last day to drop a spring-semester course for a 60% tuition refund.

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 180 days prior to the refund date cannot be processed via credit and will also be sent via check. Please allow at least two to three weeks for the payment to be sent or processed.

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.
