Each associate degree program requires 96 quarter units (i.e., 960 lecture hours) for a total tuition cost of $18,816. Federal laws and regulations require that foreign students must enroll in a course load of no less than 12 quarter units per quarter to be considered as fulltime. If the student has been enrolled FULL-TIME for 3 consecutive quarters, he/she is permitted to take the fourth quarter as the “vacation quarter” (he/she does not have to enroll.)  Usually that quarter is summer quarter, but a vacation quarter can be taken any quarter provided the student was enrolled for the 3 consecutive quarters immediately prior to the vacation quarter and will enroll full-time for the quarter immediately following the vacation quarter.

Withdrawal or Cancellation Policy for all Programs

- Certificate Programs

- Cancellation Policy

  1. A student has the right to cancel his/her agreement for a course of instruction until the midnight of the fifth business day on which he/she attended his/her first class.  Business day means a day on which the student is scheduled to attend a class session.
  2. Cancellation shall occur when the student provides a written notice of cancellation at the following address:  Likie Fashion and Technology College, 8450 Garvey Ave #201, Rosemead, CA 91770.   This can be done by mail or hand delivery.  
  3. The written notice of cancellation, if sent by mail, is effective when deposited in the mail properly addressed with proper postage.
  4. The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form, and, however expressed, it is effective if it shows the student no longer wishes to be bound by the Enrollment Agreement.  Each student will be given two Notice of Cancellation forms to use upon enrollment, but any written notice may be used.
  5. If the Enrollment Agreement is cancelled by midnight of the fifth business day on which the student attended his/her first class (business day is a day on which a student is scheduled to attend a class session), the school will refund the student any money he/she paid, less any deduction for equipment not returned in good condition, and less a registration fee not to exceed $75.00, within 30 days after the notice of cancellation is received.
  6. LFTC does not grant refunds for books, tools or uniforms.

REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST CANCEL IN WRITING.  You do not have the right to cancel by just telephoning the school or by not coming to class.


Withdrawal and Refunds

A student has the right to withdraw from a course of instruction at any time.  If a student withdraws from the course of instruction after the period allowed for cancellation of his/her Enrollment Agreement, which is until midnight of the fifth business day following the first class the student attended, LFTC will remit a refund less a registration fee, if applicable, not to exceed $75.00 within thirty (30) days of the date of determination of withdrawal.  The student is obligated to pay only for educational services rendered and for unreturned equipment.  The refund shall be the amount the student paid for instruction multiplied by fraction, the numerator of which is the number of hours of instruction which the student has not received but for which the student has paid, and the denominator of which is the total number of hours of instruction for which the student has paid.  LFTC does not grant refunds for books, tools, or uniforms, and does not issue refunds for less than $5.00 unless requested by the student.

If a separate charge for equipment is specified in the agreement, and the student actually obtains the equipment, and the student returns that equipment in good condition, allowing for reasonable wear and tear, within 30 days following the date of the student's withdrawal, the institution shall refund the charge for the equipment paid by the student.  If the student fails to return that equipment in good condition, allowing for reasonable wear and tear, within 30 days following the date of the student's withdrawal, LFTC may offset against the refund calculated the documented cost to the institution of that equipment.  The student is liable for the amount, if any, by which the documented cost for equipment exceeds the prorated refund amount.  Equipment cannot be returned in good condition if the equipment cannot be reused because of health and sanitary reasons and this fact is clearly and conspicuously disclosed in the agreement. 

If any portion of the tuition was paid from the proceeds of a loan or third party, the refund shall be sent to the lender, third party or, if appropriate, to the state or federal agency that guaranteed or reinsured the loan.  Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the loan shall be first used to repay any student financial aid programs from which the student received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received, and any remaining amount shall be paid to the student. 

Here is how LFTC calculates refunds:
Total cost – Registration fee                     =   Total program cost
Total program cost / program hours          =            Program fee per hour
Per hour program fee x hours attended    =    Total program charge
Total payment amount – Registration Fee – Total program charge = Refund

Hypothetical Refund Example

Let’s assume that a student, upon enrollment in a 480 hour course, with tuition and fees totaling $4,875. The student later wishes to cancel his/her program after completing 120 hours of instruction.  The student paid in advance a total of $4,875, which included a nonrefundable registration fee of $75.  The pro-rata refund to the student would be:

Step 1:
($4,875 - $75) /480 hrs = $10 per hour

Step 2:             
$4,875 payment - $75 non-refundable fees - ($10 per hour x 120 hrs. completed)
= $3,600 refund made to the student.

REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST CANCEL IN WRITING.  You do not have the right to cancel by just telephoning the school or by not coming to class.

 

Withdrawal and Refunds
You have the right to withdraw from your program of instruction at any time.

At a minimum, students who have completed 60 percent or less of the course of instruction for which they are charged are entitled to a pro rata refund.  The refund will be calculated as follows:

  • Deduct a registration fee not to exceed one hundred dollars ($100) from the total tuition charge.
  • Divide this figure by the number of hours in the program.
  • The quotient is the hourly charge for the program.
  • The amount owed by the student is derived by multiplying the total hours attended by the hourly charge for instruction plus the registration fee and, if received, books, and uniforms.
  • The refund shall be any amount in excess of the figure derived in paragraph (4) that was paid by the student.

 

If the school has given you any textbooks or equipment, you shall return them to the school within 30 days following the date of your notice of cancellation.  If you fail to return this equipment in good condition within the 30-day period, the school may retain that portion of payment paid by you, and the school shall deduct the charges from any refund that may be due to you.  Once you pay for the textbooks or equipment, it is yours to keep without further obligation.

IF THE AMOUNT THAT YOU HAVE PAID IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THAT YOU OWE FOR THE TIME YOU ATTENDED, THEN A REFUND WILL BE MADE WITHIN 30 DAYS OF WITHDRAWAL.  IF THE AMOUNT THAT YOU OWE IS MORE THAN THE AMOUNT THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY PAID, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO PAY IT.

IF A STUDENT LOAN WAS USED TO PAY FOR YOUR TUITION AND FEES, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE TO REPAY THE FULL AMOUNT OF THE LOAN PLUS INTEREST, LESS THE AMOUNT OF ANY REFUND.

For the purpose of determining the amount you owe for the time you attended, you will be considered to have withdrawn from your program when any of the following occurs:

  • You notify the school of your withdrawal or the actual date of withdrawal;
  • The school terminates your enrollment; or
  • You fail to attend classes for a three-week period.  In this case, the date of withdrawal shall be deemed to be the last date of recorded attendance.

In case of prolonged illness or accident, death in the family, or other circumstances that make it impractical to complete the program, the school shall make a settlement that is reasonable and fair to both parties.

You may repeat a course.  If you should withdraw from the program for any reason, based on the refund policy, the hours in attendance for repeating a course will be included in the total hours attended in determining your financial obligation to the school.

If any portion of your tuition was paid from the proceeds of a federal loan, the refund will be sent to the lender or to the agency that guaranteed the loan. Any amount of the refund in excess of the unpaid balance of the federal loan will be first used to repay any federal / state / private student financial aid program from which you received benefits, in proportion to the amount of the benefits received. Any remaining amount greater than $5.00 will be paid to you.  If there is a balance due, you will be responsible for paying that amount.

 

Student Tuition Recovery Fund Statement (STRF)    

The State of California created the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic losses suffered by California residents who were students attending schools approved by, or registered to offer Short-term Career Training with the Bureau for Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education (Bureau).

You may be eligible for STRF if you are a California resident, prepaid tuition, paid the STRF, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following:

1. The school closed before the course of instruction was completed.

2. The school's failure to pay refunds or charges on behalf of a student to third-party for license fees or any other purpose, or to provide equipment or materials for which a charge was collected within 180 days before the closure of the school.

3.        The school's failure to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federally guaranteed student loan program as required by law or to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the school prior to closure in excess of tuition and other costs.

4.        The school's breach or anticipatory breach of the agreement for the course of instruction.

5. There was the decline in the quality of the course of instruction within 30 days before the school closed, or if the decline began earlier than 30 days prior to closure, a time period of decline determined by the Bureau.

6.        The school committed fraud during the recruitment or enrollment or program participation of the student.

You may also be eligible for STRF if you were a student that was unable to collect a court judgment rendered against the school for violation of the Private Postsecondary and Vocational Education Reform Act of 1989.

You must pay the state-imposed fee for the student tuition recovery fund (STRF) if all of the following applies to you:

1.        You are a student, who is a California resident and prepays all or part of your tuition either by cash, guaranteed student loans, or personal loans, and

2. Your total charges are not paid by any third-party payer such as an employer, government program or other payer unless you have a separate agreement to repay to the third-party.

You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF if either of the following applies:

1.  You are not a California resident,

2. Your total charges are paid by a third-party, such as an employer, government program or other payer, and you have no separate agreement to repay the third-party.
