Tuition Refund Policy

Student refunds will be prorated based on the weeks the student attended our institution and the progress made each class. After 50% of course completion, the student is responsible for the cost of the course. RP-1002 (https://ahulaw.com/forms/RP_1002.pdf) illustrates the amount of refund a student is entitled to according to the date the withdrawal Form is received in our office.

Term Fees Refund Policy $30 of the Student Technology Fee will be refunded in the event of a withdrawal. The registration fee is non-refundable. WestLaw is not refundable after 30 days.

Example I: On a standard 8-week course, if a student were to withdraw on week two, the refund will be calculated as follows: $85 (Cost per week) X 2 (Weeks) = $170; Total Tuition Paid ($4250) + Term Fees ($150 WestLaw + $30 Student Technology Fee) – $170(Student’s Financial Responsibility) = Refund to Student

Example II: On a 14-week course, if a student decides to withdraw on week 11, because the student has passed the 50% mark which will be week 7, the student will be responsible for the total cost of the course which will be: $85 (Cost per week) X 14 (Weeks) = $1,190;

The period of given instruction is counted on a weekly basis, regardless of the actual day that a particular course begins. Each week starts every Sunday at 12:00am and ends on Saturday at 11:59pm (Pacific Time zone). If notice is received after a particular week starts, then, that week is counted as a week of given instruction.

If the school cancels a course, the student will receive a full refund of all charges.

The method of instruction at this law school for the Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree program is principally by technological means including interactive classes.

Students enrolled in the J.D. degree program at this law school who successfully complete the first year of law study must pass the First-Year Law Students' Examination required by Business and Professions Code § 6060(h) and Title 4, Division 1, Chapter 1 Rule 4.3(1) of the Rules of the State Bar of California as part of the requirements to qualify to take the California Bar Examination. A student who passes the First-Year Law Students' Examination within three (3) administrations of the examination after first becoming eligible to take it will receive credit for all legal studies completed to the time the examination is passed. A student who does not pass the examination within three (3) administrations of the examination after first becoming eligible to take it must be promptly disqualified from the law school's J.D. degree program. If the dismissed student subsequently passes the examination, the student is eligible for reenrollment in this law school's J.D. degree program, but will receive credit for only one year of legal study.

A student intending to seek admission to practice law in a jurisdiction other than California should contact the admitting authority in that jurisdiction for information regarding the legal education requirements in that jurisdiction for admission to the practice of law.
