The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement and obtain a refund. Intent to withdraw must be made in writing and is effective on the postmarked date of a mailed request, or on the date a written notice of withdrawal is delivered to the administrative office. Written notice should be addressed to the Administrative Dean, Western Sierra Law School, 8690 Aero Drive, #115-90, San Diego, California 92123.
If a student cancels registration before attending classes, all monies paid for tuition will be refunded; if a student cancels registration after attending classes, tuition and fees will be refunded on the following schedule:
The refund policy for students who have completed 60% or less shall be a pro-rata refund of tuition and fees. This refund is based on the percentage of the number of classes that have not transpired as related to the total number of classes per quarter.
Students who have completed 61% or more shall not receive a refund and shall be charged 100% of tuition and fees. This is based on the above-mentioned method.
The law school shall pay or credit refunds due on a reasonable or timely basis, not to exceed 30 days following the date upon which the student’s withdrawal has been determined.
Western Sierra Law School shall disclose all fees and fee-related policies and procedures to be required of students and provide copies of all information to be given to students relating to and regarding tuition, fees and refunds. All disclosures shall comply with the provisions of Title 5, Division 7.5, Chapter 2, Article 13 of the California Code of Regulations.
Dismissals are treated the same as withdrawals for refund purposes.
