Refund Policy

Aspen University’s refund policies conform to the requirements of the Arizona State Board for Private and Postsecondary Education, Section R4-39-404. In addition, the institution meets refund policies required by the federal Department of Education in 34 CFR 668 and complies with the refund and termination procedure requirements of the institution’s accrediting body, the Distance Education Accrediting Commission (DEAC).

A full refund of any monies paid towards tuition and required fees will be made in the event that one of the following occurs:

  • If the student is otherwise not approved for courses or accepted into a degree program by the University;
  • It is determined by a state authority or accrediting agency that the enrollment of the student was procured as a result of any misrepresentation in advertising, promotional materials of the school or representations by the owners or representatives of the school; or,
  • If a course of instruction is discontinued by the school and this, for a valid reason, prevents the student from completing the course.
