TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDIT
Previous training in any health care field will not replace any material covered in this program. The CNA Training Program is a private, special purpose program. That purpose is the preparation of students to work as CNAs. This purpose does not include preparing students for further college study. Participation in the training program does not constitute a guarantee that credits will transfer to another institution. Students should be aware that transfer of credit is always the responsibility of the receiving institution. Whether or not credits transfer is solely up to the receiving institution. Any student interested in transferring credit hours should check with the receiving institution directly to determine to what extent, if any, credit hours can be transferred.
For the program entitled Certified Nurse Aide (CNA), I have been informed that the withdrawal rate is 0%,completion rate is 0%, and in-field placement rate is 0%. Detailed statistical data for this program may be viewed by going to http://state.tn.us/thec and clicking “Authorized Institutions Data” button. No information is available at this time, because THI’s CNA program is a new program.
Date of withdrawal/termination will be the date on the termination notice if terminated, the date the institution receives a written withdrawal notice, or if no written notice is given, the last day of attendance. For tuition paid by student assistance programs, The Healthcare Institute, LLC will adhere to the refund policy prescribed by the sponsor. For a student whose tuition is not paid through a sponsoring agency, the following formula will be used to determine the amount of refund: Withdrawal on/before first day of class, or failure to begin class Full refund minus $100 administrative fee Withdrawal prior to 10% completion 75% refund minus $100 administrative fee Withdrawal between 10%-24% completion 25% refund minus $100 administrative fee Withdrawal at or beyond 25% completion No refund Any student who is unable to complete class because the institution discontinued such class during a period of enrollment for which the student was charged will receive a full refund.
