4) BUYER'S RIGHT TO CANCEL. The student has a right to cancel this agreement and obtain a refund.
You may cancel this Enrollment Agreement and receive a refund by providing a written notice to:
Director. Portnov Computer School. 4970 El Camino Real, Suite #110 Los Altos CA 94022.

5) REFUND POLICY. If the student signed the Enrollment Agreement but never attended the course, or cancelled the Enrollment Agreement prior to or on the first day of instruction, the School will refund the amount paid less the amount of $250.00 for the registration fee. A refund of charges will be paid through attendance at the first class session, or the seventh day after enrollment, whichever is later. If the student has attended the course and withdraws from the course after the first day of instruction but prior to completion of the course, or otherwise fails to complete the course or the period of enrollment, a student who has completed 60 percent or less of the course will be paid by the School a prorated refund of the unused portion of tuition. Refund will be paid within 30 days following the date upon which the student's withdrawal has been determined. If the School cancels or discontinues a course, the School will make a full refund of all charges paid for the course that was not provided. The refund will be paid within 30 days following the date upon which the course has been determined as cancelled or discontinued.

Example of calculating a prorated refund.

A student has completed 16 hours out of 160 hours of tuition, and by the time of withdrawal paid $1,800.00 for the course. The total fee for the course is $5,200.00. The registration fee of $250.00 is non-refundable. The hourly charge for tuition is $5,200.00 – $250.00)/160 = $30.94 The fee for tuition received is 16 x $30.94 = $495.04.

The total amount owed by the student is $495.04 (tuition) + $250.00 (non-refundable fees) = $745.04.

The student has received 16/160 = 10% of tuition and is entitled to a refund.

The School will refund $1,054.96 ((One Thousand Fifty Four dollars and Ninety Six cents)): $1,800.00 (paid by the student) - $745.04 (owed by the student) = $1,054.96

Transferability of Units Earned at our School

Units you earn in our Software Quality Assurance career training in most cases probably will not be transferable to any other college or university in the future even though you earned units here at our School. In addition, if you earn a certificate in our Software Quality Assurance career training, in most cases it probably will not serve as a basis for obtaining a degree at a college or university.

I certify that Portnov Computer School has met the disclosure requirements conforming me with the Sections 94931(d)(8) and 94816 of the New Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Reform Act of 1998.

6. Our program includes one internship placement as a part of our curriculum. Each consequent internship placement would require taking one more class at full (not discounted) catalog price

a. We might send students to interviews for the purpose of developing their interviewing skills;
b. If multiple offers are extended then the student should accept at least one offer;
c. In a force majeure situation of economic, job market, student marketability nature the school guarantees to every student an in- house, 2-3 months internship opportunity.

11. Student who rejects to go for 3 interviews accumulatively should go through an Internship Clearance one more time. After 2 more rejections by that same student the School has no further placement obligations.

12. School administration might request that student repeats Internship Clearance process if substantial time (1 month+) passed after those processes were completed

13. Administration might give one time clearance to current students and graduates based on specific request of a company/employer. One-time clearance does not substitute for the Internship Clearance processes being completed.
