NYC Data Science Academy’s refund policy adheres to both ACCET and NYS Education Department guidelines. In situations where there are differences between the two organizations’ guidelines, the policy that is most beneficial to the student will be used.

Refund Policy Guidelines

Any student wishing to withdraw from a program must notify the school in writing. The date of withdrawal for refund purposes is the last date of physical attendance. The failure of a student to notify the School Director in writing of withdrawal may delay refund of tuition due pursuant to Section 5001 and 5002 of the Education Law.

Any student requesting cancellation within seven days after signing the Enrollment Agreement but before instruction begins will be refunded all money paid to the school. Thereafter, in the event of cancellation or termination by the school, refunds will be prorated based on the schedule below per the student’s last date of attendance.
