Students are entitled to a full refund of all tuition, fees and non-instructional services paid within three (3) business days of signing this agreement, less the value of any lessons or non-instructional services provided. This is the only instance in which non-refundable fees, as indicated on the official price list, will be given.
- Tuition Refunds:
Students may request a refund of prepaid tuition by submitting a written request to management either (a) before their program’s scheduled start date, or (b) before 5:00 p.m. on the second day of class. In either case, a tuition refund will be given, less an early termination fee equivalent to one academic quarter (13 weeks) of tuition and any non-refundable fees as indicated on the official price list. However, in the event that the student has enrolled for a program of thirteen (13) weeks or fewer, no tuition refund will be provided.
International students whose visa application is denied by the government of the United States will be entitled to a full refund of prepaid tuition, not including application and any other non-refundable fees. Such students must present a copy of their official letter of denial with their request for a refund. No other tuition refunds will be given.
No tuition refunds will be given for classes cancelled due to natural disasters, such as hurricanes, tropical storms, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods or other acts of God.
All requests for refunds must be made in writing. Refunds will only be made to the person, company or agency that paid our school. If the student paid through an agency, he or she must speak directly with that agency for a refund. All refunds paid via check or wire transfer will be made via a refund check from the school. However, if school fees were paid by credit card, then the school will process the refund to the credit card used for payment.
There will be no excused absences unless the student receives written authorization from management. Students will not be entitled to any refund or makeup class in the event they do not attend a scheduled class session. A class missed is a class lost.

After the first 4 weeks of the student’s stay, payments for the subsequent weeks should be made directly to inlingua Washington DC at least 10 days before the start of a new term.

If the requested Accommodations period is less than 30 days, payment must be made for the total number of days in that period.
