LANGUAGE ON does not discriminate in its admissions policies or decisions based on the applicant’s race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, country of origin, disability, veteran’s status or any other reason unrelated to the applicant’s qualifications for and ability to benefit from the program of study to which he or she has applied.
School Admission and Registration Policy
For admission into LANGUAGE ON, students must complete the school application and, depending on their citizenship and visa status, may be required to provide a copy of a valid passport. Students must be at least 16 years of age at the time their program will commence, complete an English level placement test upon arrival and test within our program levels. In order to qualify for admission, all students must be able to benefit from their desired program of study and must not have reached native-level proficiency in English. All admitted students must complete mandatory registration by their scheduled start date. Registration consists of reporting (in person) to a LANGUAGE ON school official, completing an English level placement test (if not already completed), participating in a new student orientation session, and making any outstanding tuition payments due. In accordance with applicable immigration regulations, new F-1 students may not be registered in SEVIS until registration has been completed.
Program Calendar, Schedule and Pricing
Scheduling is based on the current LANGUAGE ON program schedule. Minor deviations from the published schedule may take place but will not affect the total number of class hours per week. Pricing is based on the current LANGUAGE ON price list. You should not sign this Application for Admission before reviewing the official program calendar, schedule and price list.
Special Requirements for F-1 and Change of Status Students
All F-1 students, including change of status students, must inform LANGUAGE ON within 10 days of changing their address. Change of status students must also immediately notify USCIS of any change in address. Students seeking a change to F-1 status must provide LANGUAGE ON with a copy of their Form I-797C (receipt) and Form I-797A (notice of action) immediately upon receiving them. Under current United States immigration regulations, students whose application for a change of status has been approved must begin their program within 30 days of the approval date that appears on their Form I-797A.
Enrollment Cancellation and Reissuance of Form I-20 for F-1 Students
F-1 students who fail to report to school by their scheduled program start date or otherwise fail to contact the school to request that their program start date be deferred will be subject to having their enrollment and Form I-20 cancelled by LANGUAGE ON. A non-refundable fee of $50.00 will be charged for each program deferral and Form I-20 reissuance (this fee does not apply to change of status students).
In accordance with Florida law, students in Florida are entitled to a full refund of all tuition, fees and non-instructional services paid within three (3) business days of signing this agreement, less the value of any lessons or non-instructional services provided. This is the only instance in which non-refundable fees, as indicated on the official price list, will be given.
Students may request a refund of prepaid tuition by submitting a written request to management either (a) before their program’s scheduled start date, or (b) before 5:00 p.m. on the second day of class. In either case, a tuition refund will be given, less an early termination fee equivalent to one academic quarter (13 weeks) of tuition and any non-refundable fees as indicated on the official price list. However, in the event that the student has enrolled for a program of thirteen (13) weeks or fewer, no tuition refund will be provided.
International students whose visa application is denied by the government of the United States will be entitled to a full refund of prepaid tuition, not including application and any other non-refundable fees, provided that the denial was not due to abandonment of the application process. Such students must present a copy of their official letter of denial with their request for a refund. No other tuition refunds will be given. Students who abandon the visa application or change of status process are not eligible for a tuition refund.
No tuition refunds will be given for classes cancelled due to natural disasters, such as hurricanes, tropical storms, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods or other acts of God.
All requests for refunds must be made in writing. Refunds will only be made to the person, company or agency that paid our school. If the student paid through an agency, he or she must speak directly with that agency for a refund. All refunds paid via check or wire transfer will be made via a refund check from the school. However, if school fees were paid by credit card, then the school will process the refund to the credit card used for payment.
There will be no excused absences unless the student receives written authorization from management. Students will not be entitled to any refund or makeup class in the event they do not attend a scheduled class session. A class missed is a class lost.
