CLS Refund Policy:

*** In order for students to receive a full refund on their Materials (Books, DVDs, VHS, Audiotapes), the materials must be returned in the same condition in which they were received, i.e. no markings, highlighting, water stains, still in shrink wrap, etc. Failure to return material in a new salable condition constitutes your irrevocable and unconditional final acceptance of the materials.

Please NOTE: If you registered for a CLS course directly with the college or university, you are subject to the school's refund/drop policies.

Holdover Policy

As you may already know, in order to receive your certificate, you must attend at least 80% of the classes as well as pass all of your exams and writing assignments with a 70% or better. If you fail to pass an assignment, you will be given a make-up assignment. If you do not complete the necessary make-up assignments during the course duration, you will need to submit all make up work directly to:

The Center for Legal Studies
523 Park Point Drive, Suite 320
Golden, CO 80401

Please be advised there will be a $25 administrative fee for each assignment submitted to our office in Golden. Payment may be made by check, money order, or credit card. You have 60 days from the last day of class to submit all make-up work along with the appropriate fees in order to receive your certificate. Failure to do so will result in a failing grade, no certificate will be issued, and you will have to re-enroll at the full tuition price. Any questions regarding this policy can be directed to our office at 1-800-522-7737.

For live lecture courses, a transfer fee will also apply for students who wish to transfer their live lecture class to a different session.

Plagiarism Policy

It is the policy of the Center for Legal Studies that all work submitted for assessment purposes must be the independent work of the student concerned, and shall be the result of their own thought, research, and expression. Instances of cheating and/or plagiarism are regarded as serious offenses and will not be tolerated.

Examples include, but are not limited to:

The student should note that cheating and plagiarism are easily identified and demonstrated, and any instances of such conduct will result in serious disciplinary action, including expulsion from the program, at the discretion of the instructor.

Certificate Replacement Policy

All requests for replacement certificates are subject to a $40 processing fee.

* Certain restrictions apply. Contact The Center for Legal Studies at 1-800-522-7737 for details.

Class Auditing Policy

Former students may audit whatever class they originally registered for. They must audit the course in the original format they took it (e.g. live students must audit a live course) and they must audit the course through the school they originally registered for (e.g. Auburn students must audit a class at Auburn). There will also be a $50 fee to audit any of the courses. Students will have one calendar year from the date the original course began to audit the course.
