Beyond Access Refund Policy

Beyond Access: Refund Policy

Center for Students with Disabilities
University of Connecticut

As a student enrolled in the Center’s Beyond Access program, you have signed a participation agreement which states the following: “Refunds may be granted on a prorated basis, up until the fourth week of classes, after which time, no refunds are granted for any reason.”

Careful planning goes into the development of resources for Beyond Access, which includes extensive training of the strategy instructors. As a result, whether or not a student participates in the program, the Center incurs a significant cost. Therefore, if a student chooses to withdraw from the program or determines that they must withdraw from the University after the first day of classes, and prior to the start of the fifth week of classes, the Center will offer refunds according to the following schedule:

At any point during the first calendar week of the semester 90%
At any point during the 2nd calendar week of the semester……… 60%
At any point during the 3rd or 4th calendar week of the semester 50%
No refunds will be offered after the conclusion of the 4th calendar week of the semester

Please note, if you feel that your situation warrants special consideration, you can appeal the decision by writing a letter to the Center indicating the details of your extenuating circumstances and why you were unable to terminate the agreement prior to the fourth week of classes. You will also be asked to submit any supporting documentation, which can include a letter from your treating medical professional or a staff/faculty member who can provide evidence to support your request. Appeals will be reviewed on an as needed basis by a review committee made up of Center for Students with Disabilities professional staff members. Once a decision has been made, you will be notified via email of the outcome. All decisions made by this committee are considered final. Appeals should be mailed or emailed to:
