Film Connection Refund Policy

The Film Connection is a fully accredited film directing and producing program that is in full compliance with state and federal refund regulation policies.

While most of our students never need or ask for a refund, our complete refund policy is described in detail below. Please show this to your parent or guardian, or anyone else who is helping you to afford your tuition.

Refund Policy

If a student has not started their program and has not completed an assignment, the Film Connection will refund the entire tuition minus any applicable cancellation fees.

You have a right to cancel your program until midnight of the 8th business day from which your course has started. Please refer to The California Education Code section 94867 on page 2.

If a student has started their program and wishes to drop out, and Film Connection determines that the student is eligible for a refund, Film Connection will calculate the refund amount based on the student’s completion percentage. For example, if 10% of the program has been completed, the Film Connection Film Institute will retain the startup costs of $2,700, plus 10% of the tuition cost. After the start of the student’s program and with at least 65% of the program completed, no refund will be granted.

Refund of Tuition Charges:

The following prorate chart shall be used to establish the percentage of tuition due to you depending on the amount of the program that has been completed:

The chart below offers an example of how the prorated refund is calculated. Percentages based on the amount of $7,100.00, which is the portion of tuition eligible for refund considering that the student has paid their tuition in full. Full tuition = $9,800.00
