Gateway Refund Policy

Refund: The goal of Gateway Education is that every student will succeed; however, there are occasions when a student struggles and very rarely does not pass the course they enrolled in. Our position is that if a student has viewed all lectures in their entirety, committed the time and effort to navigate the required curriculum, completed and submitted all assignments, taken all quizzes and exams and participated in all discussion forums, has done all work required for that course and does not pass, that student will receive a full refund for that course or will not be charged if there is a balance due. This is not a pro-rated refund; it is a full refund based on the criteria above and is verified immediately upon course completion. Following enrollment, the student has a three-day drop period during which they may cancel the enrollment and receive a refund of all monies paid for that enrollment.

Our online course program provides an opportunity for anyone interested in completing college/university courses needed for graduation to do so with flexibility and affordability rarely available in higher education.
