Becker shall make a pro rata refund of charges to any student who terminates their product after two calendar weeks of 95% of the amount charged to the student multiplied by the ratio of the number of calendar days remaining in the subscription period to the total number of calendar days in the subscription period. If a student has completed sixty percent or more of a subscription period, Becker is not required to refund charges. When a student terminates a product after the first two calendar weeks due to the student’s physical incapacity or, for a program that requires classroom instruction, due to the transfer of the spouse’s  employment to another city, the student shall receive a refund of the charges in an amount that equals the amount charged to the student multiplied by the ratio of the remaining number of calendar days in the subscription period to the total number of calendar days in the subscription period. A refund of charges shall be provided to the student within forty-five days following the date of the institution’s determination that the student has terminated their product. A student who terminates their product shall not be charged any fee or other monetary penalty for terminating, other than a reduction in tuition refund as specified above.
