Refund Policy
Students MUST submit a detailed written request to withdraw from a course, which CourseHorse will then forward on to the school. The request must state the reason of cancellation.

Refunds or credits are available: Full refund or credit if request to withdraw is made 3 business days before the first class session. 50% refund or credit if request to withdraw is made before the second class session. After the second class session no refunds or credits will be granted.

No refunds or credits will be issued for classes that meet four sessions or fewer. Classes include seminars, intensives and workshops.

All refunds will have a $25 processing fee deducted from the course refund as well as a $20 registration fee ($45 total).

When Baruch College cancels a course, refunds are made automatically. If for any reason the department cancels a session, then a make-up session will be offered.

COURSE WITHDRAWALS 

Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify the CAPS Office in writing. Failure to complete a course, ceasing to attend class, notifying the instructor of your desire to withdraw, or general dissatisfaction with a course does not constitute a withdrawal and does not entitle you to a refund. Instructors are not permitted OR able to process withdrawals, transfers or refunds.

MAKE-UP POLICY

If a student misses a session, the department unfortunately does not authorize the student to make up that missed session in another section. If the instructor informs the student to visit another section of his class, then that is between the student and the instructor.

Question from Anonymous
I noticed there is a pre-requisite. Is there any way around this? Also, is this course linked to a certificate program at Baruch? I noticed they have one.
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! If the course has a prerequisite, you would need to take the pre-requisite first before taking the course. However, if the student has experience and wishes to not take the pre-requisite first or waive it, you would need to get approval from the Director. The student would have to provide proof that they have the experience (e.g. resume).
Answer from Georgia C. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
A grade letter is provided after the completion of an individual course. A certificate is provided after the completion of a series of courses listed under that specific certificate program.

Would you say that after this class someone would be qualified to do their own construction bids? I am in the business but would like to do jobs with the city and have no idea how pricing works.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! It is for entry-level students. It depends what the student gets out of the class if they feel that they received enough information to make a bid, then they can explore the option of bidding. Hope this helps!
