W. Va. Code R. § 135-35-11 - Student Enrollment Contract

Current through Register Vol. XXXIX, No. 11, March 18, 2022

11.1. Before the schooling begins, all students shall receive a completed, signed and dated enrollment contract specifying both the school's and student's legal rights and obligations. The agreement may incorporate into the contract by reference information in the school's catalog, student handbook, or other school publication without printing such information or publication in the contract itself. The enrollment contract must contain, but is not limited to, the following:
11.1.a. The name and address of the school;
11.1.b. The name of the course of study or program, including the number of credit or clock hours of classroom instruction, home study lessons, or other study units required;
11.1.c. The total cost of the course, term or program for which the student is obligated under the contract including tuition, fees, books, and any other charges the student will incur shall be clearly stated;
11.1.d. The school's cancellation and refund policy including an explanation of the procedures a student will follow to cancel the contract or enrollment agreement; and
11.1.e. The signature of the student applicant, a parent or other sponsor if the student is under the age of eighteen (18), and the appropriate school officials, plus the date signed.
11.2. An application for admission is not to be construed as binding on the student, therefore limiting total student financial obligation to the payment of an application fee.
11.3. The school shall provide the student with a copy of the completed enrollment agreement that is signed and dated.
11.4. Those schools that are accredited by a national or regional accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education may adhere to the accrediting agency's criteria regarding student enrollment contracts to satisfy the requirements of this section. However, in the event that enrollment contracts are not addressed by accrediting agency criteria, the provisions of this section must be followed.
