CANCELATION, REFUND AND WITHDRAWAL

Humboldt International University has established a fair and equitable, clearly defined, and uniformly administered cancellation and refund policy for cancellations, withdrawals, and refunds. This process is licensed by the State of Florida which mandates a cancellation and refund policy. This policy ensures that we demonstrate compliance with that policy as well as with any unique requirements of the Confederation of International Accreditation Commission – CIAC as our accrediting agency. As such, we compare the State of Florida Refund policy with CIAC in each instance of cancellation or withdrawal and follow the policy that is more lenient towards the student.

Humboldt International University reserves the right to cancel any course and/or academic program for which there is insufficient enrollment. If Humboldt International University (HIU) exercises that right and cancel a course, HIU will notify the registered students via email and/or phone. HIU will be responsible for issuing a full refund of the tuition and other fees charged for the cancelled course.

Students, who drops a course, after their applicable tuition and fees are paid, may be eligible for a tuition and Technology Fee refund (except for the Non-refundable Enrollment and/or Re-Enrollment Fees).
