Refund Policy

The following information pertains to policies and procedures of the Digital Workshop Center (DWC) and is approved and regulated by the Colorado Department of Higher Education, Private Occupational School Board.

In the case of students withdrawing after commencement of classes, the school will retain a cancellation charge plus a percentage of tuition and fees, which is based on the percentage of contact hours attended, as described in the table below. The refund is based on the official date of termination or withdrawal.

If you would like to cancel or transfer a class, you must send your request in a written notice via email to info@digitalworkshopcenter.com or fill out the ‘Request Cancellation’ form available under ‘My Account’.

    2. The date on which the student violates published school policy, which provides for termination.
    3. Should a student fail to return from an excused leave of absence, the effective date of termination for a student on an extended leave of absence or a leave of absence is the earlier of the date the school determines the student is not returning or the day following the expected return date.
  3. The student will receive a full refund of tuition and fees paid if the school discontinues a Program/Stand Alone course within a period of time a student could have a reasonably completed it, except that this provision shall not apply in the event the school ceases operation.

Refund Policy for Employee Training – Exempt Students Only

If a private company is registering students at Digital Workshop Center (DWC) for the training of its employees, then enrollment is considered exempt under the Colorado Division of Private Occupational Schools (DPOS) statute.  This exemption is referred to as ‘Employee Training’ at DWC.  You can find a list of all acceptable exemptions under DPOS rules here .

Cancellation / Re-scheduling of classes by the DWC

If class enrollment at the DWC does not meet our minimum requirement of students, the class may be cancelled or re-scheduled. Participants will be notified prior to the start of scheduled class, typically with at least 2 days (48 hours) of advance notice.

Following our goals of limiting the number of cancellations and/or re-schedules, students may be notified as late as the day before a scheduled class. In the event of a DWC cancellation, a full refund will be available, or the paid balance may be applied toward another upcoming class at the DWC. We never want to cancel a class, but, unfortunately, it does happen.

All applicable refunds will be made within 30 days from the date of cancellation. The effective cancellation date is the day the DWC receives your request.

Re-take Eligibility

Students have the option for one (1) free “retake” of the same class taken at the DWC (public classes only). This retake registration is non-transferable, and no textbooks are provided (students are asked to bring their original textbooks with them to the retake class).

A retake is only available for students who attended the originally scheduled class.  If the student does not attend the scheduled class, they are not eligible for a retake.

A retake class has no redeemable value and is not eligible for a refund of any kind.

If a student is registered for a class as a retake student and the class is cancelled for any reason, DWC will allow the student to register as a retake for a different class until the retake bonus has been satisfied. Classes must meet minimum enrollment numbers of registered students in order to run.

In the event that a class is filled with registered students, a retake student may be placed on a wait list and will be notified of their class status immediately.

Why can’t I use my retake if I missed the class?

The retake benefit of the DWC classes is intended for people to brush up on their skills after they learn the material in class. It is not to be used as a fallback in the case of a schedule conflict. As mentioned above, in order to provide the best classroom experience, we do not want registered students to skip the class. Emergency exceptions will be made by a DWC administrator on a case-by-case basis only.

Privacy Policy

The Digital Workshop Center, LLC does not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or non-affiliated companies except to provide products or services you’ve requested, when we have your permission. We have physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that protect personal information about you that may be stored in our records.

Postponement Policy

Postponement of a starting date, whether at the request of the school or the student, requires a written agreement signed by the student and the school.  The agreement must set forth:

  1. Whether the postponement is for the convenience of the school or the student, and;
  2. A deadline for the new start date, beyond which the start date will not be postponed.

If the course is not commenced, or the student fails to attend by the new start date set forth in the agreement, the student will be entitled to an appropriate refund of prepaid tuition and fees within 30 days of the deadline of the new start date set forth in the agreement, determined in accordance with the school’s refund policy and all applicable laws and rules concerning the Private Occupational Education Act of 1981.

Student Grievance Procedure

Should a student have a grievance/complaint, please submit the issue via email to info@digitalworkshopcenter.com. Attempting to resolve a grievance with the DWC first is strongly encouraged. Student complaints may be brought to the attention of the Division of Private Occupational Schools online at http://highered.colorado.gov/dpos, (303)862-3001. There is a two-year statute of limitations for the Division to take action on a student complaint (from student’s last day of attendance).

PAYMENT

Please remember that 100% of payment needs to be received at least seven (7) business days before the start of your class to guarantee your seat.

If you have pre-paid, paid your balance due as part of a certification program, or handled payment off-line (invoice or check), you do not need to take any additional steps at this time. For payment plan information, contact our administrative office.
