Important Information and Refund Policy

• Selnate reserves the right to determine classes, levels, and schedules for all students.
• Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.
• Selnate accepts debit/ATM, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover cards with a 3% credit card processing fee. (Fee effective January 1, 2015.)
• Tuition and application fee must be received before Form I-20 will be sent.
• Homestay and application fees are non-refundable beyond three (3) business days of receipt.

Tuition refund policy: After Selnate issues the Form I-20, if the student is unable to attend Selnate for any reason other than visa denial, the student must notify Selnate in writing at least 30 days before the beginning of the semester to receive a tuition refund. If Selnate is not notified at least 30 days before the semester begins, no refund will be made. If the visa is denied, the student is eligible for a full tuition refund. Tuition will not be refunded to students who withdraw from their studies after a semester begins. Tuition refunds will not be granted to students who are expelled from Selnate for violation of policies or standards.

Homestay fees refund policy: Homestay fees are calculated on a weekly basis. Selnate will refund homestay fees on a prorated basis for unused weeks, provided the student gives at least a four (4) week notice to school administration. If less than (4) weeks notice is given, the minimum 4 weeks notice shall be added to the cancellation date and the refund adjusted accordingly.

Make-a-Payment-button

Selnate is pleased to announce a new and preferred method to pay fees from overseas that is usually free for the payer and simply requires a domestic wire fee request sent from your bank. The payment is processed through a special method that uses the Western Union network. Simply follow these instructions:

1. Determine how much you need to remit to Selnate. If you are not sure, ask us.

2. Create an information sheet online that provides you with all the information you need to generate a wire transfer. Click here to begin the process. Use the applicant's passport number when requested. Do not pay any fees online-there is no charge at this point. You indicate how much in US$ you want to send to Selnate, and you are told how much you need to remit in your home country's currency.

3. Print out the PDF generated at the end of the online process.

4. Take the printout to your bank in your country, and initiate an in-country, domestic wire transfer to a special Western Union account to another bank in your country. (This cannot be done at a Western Union branch.) All of the required information will be on the printout. YOU MUST INCLUDE THE REFERENCE NUMBER ON THE PRINTOUT, or the funds will NOT transfer correctly! You have 72 hours to complete the process, or the bid shown on your paper will become invalid and you will need to start over with step #2 above.

5. That's it! Selnate will receive the total amount in US$, usually within 48 hours.
