Enrollment Period Length: 4 weeks or less
If you withdraw from your program, BEI reserves the right to retain all tuition charges.

BEI’S REFUND PROCESS:
Refunds will be issued thirty (30) calendar days of the documented date of determination from your cancellation, or withdrawal from the enrollment period.
If a student is enrolled through an authorized agent, the refund will be issued to the party who made payment on behalf of the student. If a payment is solely made by an agent, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the agent directly for any refund requests. BEI is not responsible for any transaction made between students and their agents.
When determining the number of weeks, BEI will consider a partial week the same as if a whole week were completed, provided the student was present at least one day during the scheduled week.
If a student on a Leave of Absence does not return to resume studies, refunds (if applicable) will be processed according to BEI’s Refund policy.
If a student who has begun classes withdraws prior to completing their contractual program, the student will not receive any tuition discount for the sessions attended. Instead, the tuition will be charged at the regular rate for all completed sessions and the Standard Cancellation and Refund Policy will apply to any partial session attended.
Payment Plan fees are non-refundable.
