2.1 Live Instructor Led Programs
Students who enrolled in any of NexGenT’s cohort based programs can cancel before the first day of instruction or up to fourteen days after enrollment (whichever is later) and receive a full refund of their tuition paid. If a student were to withdraw after the cancellation deadline, their refund is subject to what is stated within the REFUND POLICY.
Note, if you are not eligible for refund under our policies and have unpaid balance, then you are responsible for paying your unpaid balance. Any payments that are past 45 days due we may be obliged to report you to the credit bureau which may affect your credit score to drop.
Refunds for withdrawals are determined in accordance with the REFUND POLICY as described below. For the purpose of determining a refund if applicable under this section, a student shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a course of instruction when any of the following occurs:
- The student notifies the institution via the completion of this form (https://nexgent.typeform.com/to/nzzUQu) of the student’s withdrawal or as of the date of the student’s withdrawal, whichever is later. The notification is effective on the date the notice is sent. The failure of a student to immediately notify NexGenT in writing of the student’s intent to withdraw may delay a refund of tuition to the student pursuant to state laws.
- The institution terminates the student’s enrollment for failure to abide by the rules and regulations of the institution; and/or failure to meet financial obligations to NexGenT.
The official termination date of enrollment shall be the student’s last day with access to the courses.

3.6 - Income Share Agreement (ISA)
An Income Share Agreement is a legal contract between student and school. The ISA contract outlines that in exchange for the provision of an education to a student, said student agrees to pay a fixed percentage of their income for a fixed duration of time. Payment occurs when a student is employed and earning above a predetermined minimum salary. The ISA contract has a Payment Cap that clearly indicates the most a student would pay given the terms of their ISA contract.
Instead of paying tuition upfront, enrolled students may choose to sign an Income Share Agreement (ISA). An ISA is a legally binding agreement representing a responsibility to pay NexGenT a portion of future income. Income Share Agreements are not a form of debt, nor are they a loan. They have no interest rate or principal balance. Students who are selected and elect the ISA option agree to pay a percent of their post-program gross income (i.e., before taxes) with monthly payments, but only when students are earning equal to or more than $40,000 per year. The ISA option is capped at a maximum of the amount that is specified in your ISA contract. Students have 5 years post-graduation of their NexGenT program to complete the monthly payments. After that period, the ISA is cancelled. If students get a job before graduation, they cannot be considered withdrawn and their ISA will be due in full with no pro-rated refund.
If a student is approved and offered the payment option of an ISA and decides to sign an Income Share Agreement (ISA), the following refund policy will be applicable.
NexGenT reserves the right to terminate a student’s enrollment or dismiss the student from the course for failure to follow the terms of their enrollment agreement, including but not limited to code of conduct violations or academic policies violations. See withdrawal and refund policies for refund details.
