PreventFirst program Policy
Before you sign the enrollment form, please make sure you read and understand PreventFirst Learning Center policies below.

Cancellation Policy: PreventFirst reserves the right to cancel/postpone any program prior to the scheduled start date for which there is deficient registration.  If PreventFirst is cancelled or rescheduled at a time during which the student is unable to attend, tuition for that particular program will be refunded. Tuition is the cost of instruction. Each of the programs cost different amounts. All tuition and fees are payable as outlined for their program of study. Students are required to pay in full the amount listed in the PreventFirst payment plan.

The school does not have any other partial payment plan. Students with billing or payment questions or problems should contact Student services Account representatives.

PreventFirst will hold any student liable for any delinquent account until such time as their indebtedness is removed. The school reserves the right to withhold transcripts and all other information regarding the record of any student who is in arrears in the payment of tuition, fees, or any charges. For continued delinquency in the payment of debts to the school, the student may be permanently dropped from the school.

Refund Policy: PreventFirst refund policy has been prepared according to the requirements of the Maryland Higher Education Commission. The student is responsible for the tuition and fees stated herein. With that understanding, the “refund” shall be defined as the return of money, cancellation of obligation or otherwise extinction of the debt and the following policy shall prevail. The registration fee is non-refundable after the seven-day cancellation period as required by Maryland’s minimum refund policy. However, it can be transferred to another class within a (3) month period.  If a student should wish to cancel for any reason, intent to cancel should be in writing to PreventFirst prior to the start of classes. After classes begin, a student withdrawing from the school should inform the school of his or her intent. Under the following circumstances, all or part of tuition will be refunded: If PreventFirst closes or discontinues a course or program, PreventFirst shall refund to each currently enrolled student monies paid by the student for tuition and fees and monies for which the student is liable for tuition and fees.

All fees paid by a student shall be refunded by PreventFirst if the student chooses not to enroll in or withdraw from a school within 7 calendar days after having signed a contract. If the student chooses not to enroll after the 7-day cancellation period but before the first day of instruction, PreventFirst will retain the application fee or registration fee. If, after the 7-day cancellation period expires, a student withdraws after instruction begins, refunds shall be based on the total contract price for the course or program and shall include all fees, except the application, registration or enrollment fee and any charges for materials, supplies, or books which have been purchased by, and are the property of, the student. The minimum refund that PreventFirst shall pay a student who withdraws or is terminated after 7-day cancellation period has expired and after instruction has begun, is as follows:
    Proportion of total course or program
    taught by date of withdrawal
    Tuition Refund
  • Less than 10%
  • 90%  Refund
  • 10% and up but not including 20%
  • 80%  Refund
  • 20% up to but not including 30%
  • 60%  Refund
  • 30% up to but not including 40% 
  • 40%  Refund
  • 40% up to 50%
  • 20 % Refund
  • More than 50%
  • No Refund
A refund due a student shall be based on the date of withdrawal or termination and paid within 30 days from the date of withdrawal or termination. The date of withdrawal or termination is the last date of attendance by the student. In the case of an official leave of absence, if a student fails to return to PreventFirst by the end of the leave of absence, a refund due a student shall be based on the date of withdrawal or termination and paid within 30 days of the scheduled last day of the leave of absence. Failure to complete payment prior to withdrawal does not relieve you of financial liability.

This refund policy is in accordance with the provisions of Maryland Higher Education Commission.
