AGI provides distance educational program where the instruction is not offered in real time. AGI shall transmit the first lesson and any materials to any student within seven days after the institution accepts the student for admission.
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. From the time of cancellation of the course, the student’s course access is immediately terminated. Students who withdraw from the program will be ineligible for any testing or certification after the time of termination.
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 institution transmits the balance of the material as the student requests, the institution shall remain obligated to provide the other educational services it agreed to provide, such as responses to student inquiries, student and faculty interaction, and evaluation and comment on lessons submitted by the student.
In the event the student requests a refund, all of the following conditions must be met:
If all of these conditions have been met, the student will reach out to their Student Advisor to begin the refund process.
For online delivered course programs any course materials that were physically provided to the student up until the time of withdrawal will remain the property of the student. From the time of withdrawal all student access, testing, and any other privileges granted by the American Gunsmithing Institute will be revoked immediately, and the student will no longer be on the course path to becoming an AGI Certified Gunsmith.
If the student requests a refund, when applicable as described above, and then 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. If accepted back into the program, the formerly dropped student will be required to pay a $197 reenrollment fee. To contact the Director of Admissions the student will call 1-800-797-0867 for more information.
Online Course and testing access for a period of twenty-four (24) months is included in the course tuition for the Online Professional Gunsmithing Level 1 Course during the course of studies. At the end of the twenty-four (24) month term course access will be suspended unless additional access time is purchased at the cost of $197 per year of access. Access can only be purchased in 1-year increments. Due to the self-paced nature of the course material, this will occur regardless of whether a student has completed their course material during the original time allotted. Should a student require more time to complete their course material or wishes to retain access to the online course material for reference purposes they may do so for an additional $197 per calendar year beyond the initial course tuition.
Students will receive advanced notice ahead of the end of their access term so that they can proceed through their course accordingly. Students may purchase the annual extended course access from their student dashboard or by contacting AGI staff. For questions about or assistance with their online course students may call 1-800-797-0867 or email [email protected] for more information.

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:
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.
