Tuition Refund Policy

Tuition Refund Policy and Procedure

Refund Request

All refund requests must be submitted by the student in writing, in person, by regular mail, or by email. All refunds are made by check within 30-calendar days from the date of receipt of such request. The student may pick up the check in person or request the delivery of the check by mail, in which case the applicable mailing fee will apply.

The refund check will be made payable to the entity or to the person from which the funds originated. If a student is applying through an educational counselor/church, the refund will be made payable to the church, unless the Vine Institute is instructed by the student’s agency to pay the student directly.

Basis for Refund

The tuition refund is solely based on the money received by the school after all registration fees owed to the school are deducted. Any money not paid, discounts or promotions, will be void and will not apply upon withdrawal. The tuition charge will be based on the standard (full charge) published price.


The student has the right to cancel the enrollment agreement in a course and obtain a refund of charges paid through attendance at the first class session, or the third class after enrollment, whichever is later. If the student cancels by the first class session, there is a full refund.


For courses withdrawn after the period allowed for cancellation, the tuition refund will be prorated on a weekly basis. There is no refund if withdrawn after 3 weeks.

Unclaimed Balance

The school has the right to any unclaimed balance beyond 180 days from the last date of student’s attendance or the scheduled start date if the student had never attended the school.
