  1. Refund Information for Courses:
  2. For students in states other than Nevada

    Within the first five (5) business days after enrollment:

    • If students wish to cancel and have not submitted any course assignments, students have the right to receive a full refund of all charges. In this case, students are asked to refuse all shipments from Allied Business Schools, Inc. (Allied). If they have already received the course materials, students are requested to ship the course materials back to Allied promptly.
    • If students have completed at least one (1) assignment in any of the enrolled course(s) within the first five (5) business days after enrollment, they will not be eligible to receive a full refund. In this case, their refund for the course(s) with submitted assignment(s) will be calculated in the same way as "after the fifth business day from enrollment" explained below.

    After the fifth business day from enrollment, but before the enrollment termination date (see termination date in the enrollment agreement):

    • If students wish to cancel after the fifth business day but before any assignments are submitted, they are entitled to a full refund minus (1) shipping and (2) a non-refundable 20% portion of the course cost, total not to exceed $200.
    • If students have completed at least one (1) assignment in any enrolled course but no more than 50% of the assignments in the course and they wish to withdraw, students are entitled to receive a prorated refund based on the following formula:
      • Refundable Tuition is the remaining amount after the deduction of (1) shipping and (2) a non-refundable 20% portion of the course cost (total not to exceed $200).
      • If students have completed 10% or less of the course, 10% of the Refundable Tuition will be deducted.
      • If students have completed between 10.1% and 25% of the course, 25% of the Refundable Tuition will be deducted.
      • If students have completed between 25.1% and 50% of the course, 50% of the Refundable Tuition will be deducted.
      • The remaining amount after such deduction described above will be the amount owed to students for the course.
    • If students have completed more than 50% of the course and wish to withdraw, they would not be entitled to a refund for the course.
    Please return the course materials to Allied when canceling or withdrawing from the enrolled course(s). The tax amount paid for the course(s) is only refundable when the course materials are returned.

Arbitration Agreement and Waiver of Jury Trial

  1. Any dispute I may bring against Allied Business Schools, Inc. (ABS), or any of its parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, or employees, without limitation, or which the College may bring against me, no matter how characterized, pleaded or styled, shall be resolved by binding arbitration, conducted by the American Arbitration Association, under its Consumer Rules, and decided by a single arbitrator. The arbitrator will decide the case pursuant to the Federal Arbitration Act, and under the laws of the state of California. Any dispute over the interpretation, enforceability or scope of this Arbitration Agreement shall be decided by the Arbitrator, and not by a Court. I explicitly waive any right I may have to a jury trial, and understand that the decision of the arbitrator will be binding, and not merely advisory.
  2. Neither ABS nor I shall file any lawsuit against the other in any court and agree that any suit filed in violation of this provision shall be promptly dismissed by the court in favor of arbitration. Both ABS and I agree that the party enforcing arbitration shall be awarded costs and fees of compelling arbitration.
  3. The costs of the arbitration filing fee, arbitrator’s compensation, and facilities fees that exceed the applicable court filing fee will be paid by ABS.
  4. I agree that any dispute or claim I may bring shall be brought solely in my individual capacity, and not as a plaintiff or class member in any purported class action, representative proceeding, mass action or consolidated action.
  5. Any remedy available from a court under the law shall be available in the arbitration.
  6. To the extent I have an outstanding federal student loan or other third party student loan obligations incurred in connection with my enrollment at ABS, any arbitration award providing monetary damages shall direct that those damages be first paid toward my student loan obligations.
  7. I may, but need not, be represented by an attorney at arbitration.
  8. The fact of and all aspects of this arbitration and the underlying dispute shall remain strictly confidential by the parties, their representatives, and AAA. I agree that any actual or threatened violation of this provision would result in irreparable harm, and will be subject to being immediately enjoined.
  9. If I desire to initiate arbitration, Information about the AAA arbitration process and the Consumer Rules also can be obtained at www.adr.org or 1-800-778-7879. I shall disclose this document to the AAA.
  10. If any paragraph, sub-paragraph, provision, or clause herein is held invalid, said paragraph, sub-paragraph, provision, or clause shall not affect any other paragraph, sub-paragraph, provision, or clause that can have effect without the invalidated paragraph, sub-paragraph, provision, or clause, and thus is severable one from the other.

The Distance Education Accrediting Commission

Allied Business Schools is accredited by the Distance Education Accrediting Commission. The Distance Education Accrediting Commission is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a recognized accrediting agency.

What is Accreditation?

Accreditation is a private, voluntary, non-governmental peer-review process that reviews the educational quality of an institution or program. In the United States, accreditation is the primary means of assuring educational quality. Accreditation status confirms that an institution has voluntarily undergone a comprehensive self-study and peer examination that demonstrates the institution meets standards of accreditation. To receive accreditation, the institution must clearly demonstrate that it has established educational goals; offers formal, organized learning experiences and services that enable students to meet these stated goals; and that students and graduates have benefited from the learning experiences provided. Furthermore, accreditation assures that an institution operates on a sound financial basis, has approved programs of study, qualified instructors, adequate facilities and equipment, ethical recruitment and admission policies, engages in continual improvement through self-evaluation and planning, and promotes its programs truthfully.

DEAC accreditation is institutional. It covers all distance education and/or correspondence education programs offered by an institution.

Extensions and Re-Enrollment Policy:

If students are unable to complete a course by the course end date, students may request a one-time six-month extension (SAFE Mortgage Loan Originator Courses* and California 45-Hour Real Estate License Renewal courses are ineligible). The original course end date will be extended by six months regardless of when an extension was requested or granted. Students must make the extension request (in writing) prior to the original course end date. Extension requests may be emailed to studentaffairs@alliedschools.com.

If students are unable to make the extension request prior to the original course end date or unable to complete a course by the end of the six-month extension period, students may request a one-time re-enrollment. The fee for the re-enrollment is 15% of the current course price. Students will be required to start the coursework from the beginning, regardless if students are re-enrolled in the same version or in a newer version of the course. Each initial enrollment is only eligible for one extension and one re-enrollment. Re-enrollments are eligible for a one-time and final course extension.

If students are unable to complete their enrollment within the guidelines indicated above, but still wish to complete the course, students will be required to re-enroll in the course at the current course price, but students will receive a 10% alumni discount. Students will also have to start the coursework from the beginning, regardless if students are re-enrolled in the same version or in a newer version of the course.

*SAFE Mortgage Loan Originator Comprehensive Courses have a fixed start date and fixed termination date. If a student is enrolled in a SAFE course but has not already scheduled the start date, the student must do so within one year of enrollment. Once a student has started the course, the student must complete it in its entirety by the termination date. The nature of this course does not allow for extensions. If a student fails to schedule a start date for the SAFE course within one year of enrollment, the student may be subject to a re-enrollment fee (15% of the current course price). Students who schedule a start date but never start the course or start the course but cannot complete by the enrollment termination date will be granted a one-time restart, provided that the restart date is within the original year enrollment AND within 30 days of the original start date. Any restart that is outside of the original year enrollment or beyond 30 days of the original start date may be subject to a re-enrollment fee (15% of the current course price). Each initial SAFE enrollment is only eligible for one restart and two re-enrollments.
