Refund and Discount Policies

Refund Policy

If Hunter/IELI cancels a course, students are entitled to a 100% refund (including registration fee.)

For all other withdrawals, the registration fee is non-refundable.

If the student withdraws:

  • When a student withdraws before the first day of classes, tuition is refunded minus the $25 registration fee and a $10 drop fee.
  • 75% tuition refund will be granted when a student withdraws during the first week of classes minus registration fee and drop fee.
  • 50% refund will be granted when a student withdraws during the second week of classes. No tuition refund will be granted after the second week of classes.
  • The testing/IELI processing fee is not refundable.  (The Placement Test is valid for 12 months.)
  • Payments for dropped classes may be refunded (under the above rules) or left as a credit for future classes for up to one year.  Warning: credits expire after one year.
  • Payment must be made in full by the second day of the first week of classes, or a $50 late payment fee will be charged.


All discounts are available on individual courses of $100 or more
