Requesting a Refund

All requests for refunds must be made in writing to the Office of Professional Education, The American College of Financial Services, 270 S. Bryn Mawr Ave., Bryn Mawr, PA 19010 or by calling our Professional Education Department at 888-263-7265.

Fees are subject to change at any time without notice. Fees may not be credited to another student. Most companies have educational reimbursement plans; contact your company for details. The College also is an "eligible institution" under The Higher Education Act of 1965 (as amended). This status allows you to take advantage of the Lifetime Learning Credit under Internal Revenue Code. Consult your tax advisor to see if you qualify.

The policies are as follows:

Refund policy for HS & GS courses

The College will refund course tuition less a $170 cancellation fee if a student requests the refund within 30 days of signing up for the course or, in the case of a live onsite or webinar class, before the third class date, whichever is sooner. Those enrolling in designation packages, where all courses are purchased at once, will be subject to separate refund arrangements communicated at the time of purchase.

For Pre-Paid Packages: The College will refund course tuition paid less a $495 cancellation fee if student requests refund within 30 days of enrollment (after 30 days, no refund).

Refund Policy for WMCP™ Program

Purchases can be canceled within 30 days of enrollment (or program launch).*  For students who paid in full, they will be refunded $2,750.00 minus $495.00 (refund total: $2,255.00).  For students who selected the payment plan, their first installment of $495 will be forfeited, and they will be released from all remaining payments.  If their second installment has already been collected, they will be refunded that amount to their credit card.

*All students who enroll between December 1, 2017 – February 28, 2018 will be given a 15-day risk-free study period, in which they can request a full refund within the first 15 days of their Program Window if not completely satisfied.
