All tuition must be paid in full prior to the first day of class in accordance with Heavy Metal Training Institute’s tuition policy. HMTI does not accept payment arrangements.

Heavy Metal Training Institute’s Cancellation & Refund Policies apply to both student withdrawals and school terminations. OAC 565:10-11-3(f) Application; “A school’s refund policy shall state its applicability to both school-determined and student-driven enrollment terminations.” These policies are as follows:

  • Cancellation Policy: A full refund of all monies paid will be made: if an applicant is not accepted by the school; if an applicant cancels his/her Enrollment Agreement by notifying the school in writing within three days of enrollment, or within three days after visiting the school (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays); or in the event of school closure prior to the start of training. A full refund of any monies paid will be made if an applicant cancels his/her Enrollment Agreement prior to attending classes or does not commence training. All refunds will be made within 30 days from the anticipated start date and the Enrollment Agreement is canceled. Unless the institution closes, if a program is discontinued by the school after the beginning of classes, while students are enrolled, and students cannot be transferred to a comparable program, the school will provide a full refund of tuition.
  • Refund Policy: The refund calculation is calculated by dividing the number of hours completed, as determined by the last date of scheduled attendance, by the number of hours in the academic period. Scheduled breaks of five or more calendar days and days that a student was on approved Leaves of Absence are excluded. If the withdrawal is within the first 10% of the program hours, the refund is 90%. If the withdrawal is after 10% but within the first 25% of the program hours, the refund is 75%. If the withdrawal is after 25% but within the first 50% of the program hours, the refund is 50%. If the withdrawal is after 50% of the program hours, the refund is 0%. Charges to the student that are excluded from the refund calculation are a $100.00 Withdrawal Fee and charges for books and supplies issued to the student. Students may return books in new condition within 20 days after withdrawal to receive a credit on their account. All refunds will be made within 30 days from the date of withdrawal determination.
