A student may cancel their enrollment at any time. Requests to begin the cancellation and refund process must be made prior to the expiration of a 365-day term from date of enrollment. See Section F – Withdrawal and Refund Policy for complete details.

The request to cancel their enrollment must be dated or postmarked prior to the expiration of the 365-day term.

F - WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICY

AGI provides for a full refund if the student has demonstrated that they have studied the course and attests that the Gunsmithing Course content does not equip them with the Design, Function, and Repair knowledge to become a Certified Gunsmith and is subject to the following conditions:

Requests to begin the cancellation and refund process must be made prior to the expiration of a 365-day term from date of enrollment. The request must be dated or postmarked prior to the expiration of the 365-day term.

The Cancellation process begins on the date the written or emailed notice of cancellation is received by this institute at 351 Second Street, Napa CA 94559.  Refunds will be paid within 30 days of cancellation unless the cancellation occurs after the institution has mailed the first lesson and materials but prior to your receipt of those documents. In such cases the institution shall make the refund within 30 days after receipt of the returned course materials. This Institution shall transmit all lessons and other materials to the student if the student (a) has fully paid for the educational program; and (b) after having received the first lesson and initial materials, requests in writing that all of the material be sent.

If the student requests a refund and withdraws from the American Gunsmithing Institute courses that they enrolled in, they will be prohibited from further enrollment unless the student appeals to the Director of Admissions.  After the student submits the application, the Director of Admissions will review the application and determine if the student’s appeal warrants readmission/reenrollment.

U - CA STUDENTS ONLY: Student Tuition Recovery Fund Payment

The State of California established the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic loss suffered by a student in an educational program at a qualifying institution, who is or was a California resident while enrolled, or was enrolled in a residency program, if the student enrolled in the institution, prepaid tuition, and suffered an economic loss. Unless relieved of the obligation to do so, you must pay the state-imposed assessment for the STRF, or it must be paid on your behalf, if you are a student in an educational program, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all or part of your tuition. You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment, if you are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program. It is important that you keep copies of your enrollment agreement, financial aid documents, receipts, or any other information that documents the amount paid to the school. Questions regarding the STRF may be directed to the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, 1747 North Market Blvd., Suite 225, Sacramento, CA 95834, P.O. Box 980818, West Sacramento, CA 95798-0818, (916) 431-6959 or (888) 370-7589. To be eligible for STRF, you must be a California resident or enrolled in a residency program, prepaid tuition, paid or deemed to have paid the STRF assessment, and suffered an economic loss as a result of any of the following:

  1. The institution, a location of the institution, or an educational program offered by the institution was closed or discontinued, and you did not choose to participate in a teach-out plan approved by the Bureau or did not complete a chosen teach-out plan approved by the Bureau.
  2. You were enrolled at an institution or a location of the institution within the 120 day period before the closure of the institution or location of the institution, or were enrolled in an educational program within the 120 day period before the program was discontinued.
  3. You were enrolled at an institution or a location of the institution more than 120 days before the closure of the institution or location of the institution, in an educational program offered by the institution as to which the Bureau determined there was a significant decline in the quality or value of the program more than 120 days before closure.
  4. The institution has been ordered to pay a refund by the Bureau but has failed to do so.
  5. The institution has failed to pay or reimburse loan proceeds under a federal student loan program as required by law or has failed to pay or reimburse proceeds received by the institution in excess of tuition and other costs.
  6. You have been awarded restitution, a refund, or other monetary award by an arbitrator or court, based on a violation of this chapter by an institution or representative of an institution, but have been unable to collect the award from the institution.
  7. You sought legal counsel that resulted in the cancellation of one or more of your student loans and have an invoice for services rendered and evidence of the cancellation of the student loan or loans.

To qualify for STRF reimbursement, the application must be received within four (4) years from the date of the action or event that made the student eligible for recovery from STRF.

A student whose loan is revived by a loan holder or debt collector after a period of non-collection may, at any

time, file a written application for recovery from STRF for the debt that would have otherwise been eligible for recovery. If it has been more than four (4) years since the action or event that made the student eligible, the student must have filed a written application for recovery within the original four (4) year period, unless the period has been extended by another act of law.

However, no claim can be paid to any student without a social security number or a taxpayer identification number.
