Do you still offer courses through Terra State Community College?

I signed up for classes through OIRES and never finished? Can I receive a refund or a credit to finish my courses at Hondros?
As a part of OIRES’ cancellation policy, we will not be able to offer any refunds or credits at this time. The policy in place with OIRES if you made your purchase prior to June 22, 2018 was as follows: Any student may cancel or withdraw from a program prior to the first class and shall be entitled to a full refund of tuition. Refund requests MUST be made prior to the start of class. As expenses are incurred in the initial registration of a student, registration fees are non-refundable. A processing fee of $50 will be applied in all cases. If a student received a discount, business incentive or scholarship, the refund will be based on the amount actually paid by the student. Payments made at ANY reduced rate, or package pricing are NON-REFUNDABLE after the first class start date.
We do encourage you to register for your real estate courses through Hondros College and we would be happy to work with you to create a course schedule that makes the most sense for you. For more information, please contact our Student Services team at email@example.com or by calling 1.888.HONDROS.
