The full program fee will be posted to the student's account within two weeks of the TECHniques Center receipt of the student's signed Statement of Understanding.  Should a student withdraw from the program, voluntarily or involuntarily, he/she will be refunded an amount according to posted deadlines and minus the deposit amount.
