After TEIK has received payment from the teacher and TEIK has made payment to the TEFL school a refund is not possible, but instead of a refund the TEFL institute will allow the TEFL student to postpone their enrollment into a later TEFL course if the student has not already started the TEFL course that they have registered for. The TEFL school charges a $100 course transfer fee to change the course start date to a later start date.

Once payment has been processed and the student is registered in the 150 Hour TEFL Correspondence course a refund is not possible, but the student will be able to complete the course without any time limitation. If a student opts for the TEFL payment plan a TEFL certificate will not be granted until they have paid the tuition in full and have completed all of their course work and practicum requirement with a passing grade.
