This contract must be signed by the student, School Official of Carlson College of Massage Therapy, and a witness. The program costs include the tuition, program fees, the required textbooks, a portable massage table or chair and Student Liability Insurance. An initial payment of at least $750.00 at registration will allow the student to receive their textbooks the first day of the program. In addition, the student’s table or a chair will be ordered.

REFUND POLICY: Full Time Program and Part Time Program


All tuition refunds exclude the equipment, supplies, and administrative fee, which totals $1,500.00.  This non-refundable $1,500 charge is applied equally to both payment periods ($750 per payment period). 

(1) In the case that an applicant is denied admission into the program, all charges, including the tuition, equipment, supplies, and paid administrative fee, will be fully refunded.

(2) Should an applicant cancel their enrollment prior to the start of the program, there will be no tuition, equipment supplies, and administrative fee charges. Payments that have been received will be refunded within 45 days of written notice of enrollment cancelation (excluding the non-refundable application fee).  

(3) If the student cancels the enrollment agreement within the first two week of instruction, there will be no tuition charged to the student. Please note that applicable equipment charges, supplies, and administrative fees will be non-refundable.   
 
(4) The institution assesses tuition, equipment, supplies and administrative fees charges for the program in substantially equal increments at the beginning of each of the two payment periods in the program.  The institution will make a pro rata refund of tuition charges to a student who terminates from any of the institution’s postsecondary educational programs or courses after the first two calendar weeks in an amount that is not less than ninety-five percent of the amount of tuition charges to the student multiplied by the ratio of the number of scheduled clock hours remaining in the payment period to the total number of scheduled clock hours in the payment period.  If the student has completed sixty percent or more of a payment period, the student shall not be refunded any tuition charges. 

(5) If a student terminates the program after the first two calendar weeks due to the student’s physical incapacity or due to the transfer of the student’s spouse’s employment to another city, the terminating student shall receive a refund of the tuition charges in an amount that equals the amount of tuition charged to the student for the payment period multiplied by the ratio of the remaining number of scheduled clock hours in the payment period to the total number of scheduled clock hours in the payment period.  The student will be required to submit proper medical documentation to Carlson College of Massage Therapy to verify physical incapacity.  The student will be required to submit workplace documentation to Carlson College of Massage Therapy outlining the transfer of their spouse’s employment to another city.

(6) This policy offers the following options to a student who is a member, or the spouse of a member if the member has a dependent child, of the Iowa national guard or reserve forces of the United States and who is ordered to state military service, federal service, or duty:

A.  Withdraw from the student’s entire registration and receive a full refund of tuition and mandatory fees.

B.  Make arrangements with the Carlson College of Massage Therapy Administration for course grades, or for incomplete's that shall be completed by the student at a later date. If such arrangements are made, the registration for those courses shall remain intact and tuition and mandatory fees shall be assessed for those courses. Any course for which arrangements cannot be made for grades or incompletes shall be considered dropped and the tuition and mandatory fees for the course refunded.

All students receiving a refund for a special military circumstance must provide proper documentation to Carlson College of Massage Therapy Administration to verify a change in soldier status. 

*All students who receive a credit balance of Title IV Funds within a payment period are responsible to repay Carlson College of Massage Therapy for all unearned Title IV money in that payment period.  Failure to make repayment may result in Carlson College of Massage Therapy using the services of a collection agency or the legal system for this debt.  The report of tuition due to a collections agency will result in a negative credit report filing.   

*All accepted and registered students who do not attend the program on the first day will be contacted via telephone and email, if both are available.  It will be communicated that they may still join the program by attending class or they will be removed from the class list after the fifth consecutive day of non-attendance following the first day of the contract start date.     

*All refunds are based upon the student’s last day of attendance.

*All refunds will be issued within 45 days from student’s last day of attendance.
