Cancellation, Withdrawal and Course Changes
Cancellation occurs when a student terminates a course of study before beginning it. A full tuition refund is given for cancellations within 21 calendar days of the enrollment approval date. Enrollment fee is non-refundable.
Withdrawal occurs when a student terminates or drops a course of study after GIA begins providing educational services. A withdrawal fee will be charged if withdrawing after 21 days of enrollment.
Changes involving withdrawing from one course and enrolling in another can be requested for courses where less than 20% of the work has been completed. Changes may be requested within two months of the date of enrollment.
Email email@example.com with any enrollment changes. Include the specific course number and name, student number and full name, and any instructions on returning a refund (if any).
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if withdrawing or cancelling courses without adding others. Student Financial Services will email confirmation of your withdrawal and the amount of any refund due.
