Refund Policy - Online Programs

15-29 days prior to program start: 50% refund

If a course is canceled by SIG before the course begins, SIG will issue a refund of all program fees paid. If a course is terminated during the session, SIG will consider the circumstances and may, in its sole discretion, issue a partial refund or credit. Under no circumstances, medical or otherwise, will SIG refund the $25 application fee due at the time the application is submitted for courses in session. Refunds are not provided once the course begins.
