Terms

Promotions/Incentives

Risk-Free Guarantee:

  • Money-Back Guarantee: You may cancel your enrollment within 14 days of initial purchase and receive a full refund of tuition paid to TCL. The 14 day risk-free period is valid only when enrolling at least 30 days in advance of the course start dates of our site-based and online structured courses. (The guarantee is not applicable for self-paced courses.) TCL transfer, cancellation and refund policies still apply. See policies above or contact TCL for details.
  • Satisfaction Guarantee: Participants dissatisfied with their course must contact TCL to drop the course before the course concludes. No certificates of completion, grades or transcripts will be issued for the dropped course. You may then transfer to a new course within six months of the original course purchase or start date. Only one free transfer per course enrollment allowed. TCL transfer, cancellation and refund policies still apply. See policies above or contact TCL for details.

Multicourse Discount: Enroll in any course at full price and register for a second course for half off. Additional university fees apply for graduate credit. Discount is automatically applied at checkout and is applied toward the lower priced course. Courses must be selected from TCL’s current course schedule, and enrollment secured by concurrent payment of a deposit or full tuition for each course. Participants may transfer to alternate courses according to TCL policies. Withdrawing from a course, however, will result in forfeiture of the multicourse discount and reduction of that amount from any refundable tuition portion, should any exist.    

Class Builder Program:  This program is designed to help individuals bring our courses directly to colleagues in their area or school. Class Builders can earn up to $1,000 (or more) and a free course. Please contact our office at 888-550-5465 or info@connectinglink.com for more information.

Refer-a-Friend Program:  Colleague must enroll by phone and provide referral information at the time of enrollment. Valid only for new-to-TCL customers who enroll in and complete a TCL course. A $50 Amazon gift card will be sent to the referring individual within 30 days of course completion. Please contact our office at 888-550-5465 or info@connectinglink.com for more information.

Registration

Course Details: Please note that course dates, locations, and instructors are subject to change. We will attempt to notify you by email should any changes occur; however, we recommend that you verify course data on our website before attending the first day of class.

Tuition: For site-based and online structured courses, you have the option to pay in full or make a $100 nonrefundable deposit. The remaining balance for the course will be due and payable on or before the first day of class for site-based courses. You may provide your instructor with a check or credit card on the first day of class. For online structured courses, you must pay your balance by check or credit card 1 week before the first day of class. Enrollment on the first day of a class is not guaranteed and course materials may also not be available to you on the first day of class. Fast-Track and self-paced courses require full payment at time of enrollment.

TCL reserves the right to disallow or revoke enrollment for legitimate business reasons.

All policies are subject to change without prior notice.



Cancellation Policies

Site-Based & Online Structured Course

Refunds: If a participant withdraws from a course 7 or more days before the first day of class they will receive a refund of the amount paid to TCL, less the $100 nonrefundable deposit. If they fail to notify TCL at least 7 days prior to the start date of the course, no refund will be provided. (Please allow 3-4 weeks for refunds.)

Cancellations: If a course is cancelled by TCL we will notify participants by phone approximately two weeks prior to the first day of class. They may transfer to another site-based or online course at the same tuition as their original course purchase price or receive a full refund. Please note that some circumstances may prevent us from providing a 2-week notice.

Returning Materials: In some cases, you may have received textbooks from TCL prior to starting your course. To remain eligible for a refund or transfer please contact TCL for a Return Materials Authorization (RMA) number and return the textbooks within 21 days of the RMA number being issued.

Transfers: If a participant is unable to attend their course and notifies TCL 7 days or more before the first day of class, they may transfer into a different site-based or online structured course. The new course must be held within 1 year of the original course start date. They will be subject to the regular price of the new course in effect at that time and a $30 processing fee will be assessed. No discounts will be applied to the new course.

Fast-Track Courses: Participants will have 8 weeks from initial log on to complete Fast-Track courses.

Self-Paced Courses: Participants will have 12 weeks from initial log on to complete self-paced courses
