COURSE WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICY: Withdrawal prior to the listed
start date of a course entitles the registrant to a complete refund or a credit toward a
future VIN CE course, whichever is preferred. Withdrawal within 1 week after the listed
start date (i.e. including no more than one real-time session) entitles the registrant to a
credit toward any future VIN CE course. (Does not apply to courses with only one real-
time session.) After the first real-time session, a registrant may withdraw due to special
circumstances and receive prorated credit towards a future VIN course. These requests
will be handled on an individual basis. The amount of the prorated credit will be
determined based on 65% of the time remaining in the course at the time of withdrawal.
It is not possible to withdraw retroactively. Note: To ensure rapid handling of your
request for withdrawal, we recommend that you call the VIN office at 1-800-700-INFO.
