I am a culinary student. Ang program is consist of 2 courses, part 1 baking and part 2 culinary.
Ganito po nangyari. Ang Part 1 Baking ay may 3 levels. Nagka problema ako sa level 2 ko, bagsak daw. Pero hindi ko pa nalaman yun until magtetake nalang ako ng final exam ko sa level 3. Sabi ng school, hindi na daw ako mag tetake ng final exam sa level 3 dahil bagsak ako sa level 2. Bakit pa nila ako hinayaang mag take ng level 3 kung bagsak pala level 2 ko?
Now after baking, next na culinary ko.
Pero ayoko na ituloy ang culinary program sa school na yun, pangit kasi ang patakaran. Walang update sa status mo kung pasado ka o hindi, so in the end mo nalang malalaman sayang ang pera mo dahil bumagsak ka. Ayoko masayang ang pera ng ganun lang.
Now, gusto ko nalang i refund yung part ng tuition ko para sa Culinary Program, at parang lalabas eh yun baking nalang ang binayaran ko.
Nag inquire ako sa admin, sabi wala na daw ako marerefund.
Eto po yung section ng handbook for the refund policy:
Withdrawal for Cause. The student shall be entitled to immediately withdraw from the Course by giving written notice to (Name of School) of his intention to do so under the following circumstances:

• The School is in material breach of its obligations under this Agreement.
Refunds for withdrawal for Cause. The School shall, as soon as practicable after receiving the Student’s notice of withdrawal under clause II.a (and in any event no more than thirty days after receiving such notice) refund to the student:

Where the student withdraws from the course from any reason other than those stated in II.a, the School shall, as soon as practicable after receiving the Student’s notice of withdrawal (and in any event not more than 30 days after receiving such notice) refund to the student the following sums (less any applicable bank administrative charges):

Question 1. What does commencement means? Dalawa po kasi ibig sabihin, 1) graduation; 2) beginning; contradicting po.
Question 2. Allowed po ba sa batas ang 0% refund policy? Talaga po ba wala na ko marerefund?
Thanks in advance Atty.
