Tuition Refund Policy

Refunds are processed according to the following Refund Schedule for those who withdraw or are dismissed. Withdrawals may be communicated by students in any manner; however, Valar Institute strongly recommends submitting requests in writing to [email protected] to ensure timely processing. Tuition refunds are processed within 30 days of receipt of the refund request.

Students withdrawing due to active duty military service should contact Valar for additional information regarding their tuition and account options.

Refund amounts are based on the total amount of tuition stated in the student’s enrollment agreement (“Total Tuition”), regardless of how much has been paid by the student at the time of withdrawal or dismissal. 

Students who are dismissed from Valar may receive a refund by contacting [email protected] within 30 days of dismissal according to the following schedule:

Progress Benchmark Percentage of Total Tuition Refunded to the Student Percentage of Total Tuition Retained by Valar
Prior to beginning any of the concentrations listed below 100% 0%
Before completing one concentration 90%
After completing one concentration but before completing two concentrations 75% 25%
After completing two concentrations but before completing four Concentrations 50%
After completing four Concentrations 0% 100%

“Completing” a concentration is defined as completing all lessons required to unlock the concentration exam.

The concentrations referenced in this refund policy are the following:

  • Leadership Foundations
  • Organizational Behavior
  • Global Economics
  • Marketing and Pricing
  • Business Communication
  • Financial Management
  • Strategic Leadership
  • Advanced Corporate Strategy
  • Creativity & Innovation


If a student’s Total Tuition is $9,600 ($800 a month for 12 months) and the student has completed two concentrations (e.g., Leadership and Organizational Behavior) at the time of withdrawal, then the student is eligible for a 50% refund of Total Tuition, which will be paid as follows:

  1. If the student has paid all of the Total Tuition prior to withdrawal ($9,600), then the student is eligible for a refund of $4,800 (50% of $9,600), and Valar retains $4,800 (50% of $9,600).
  2. If the student has paid half of the Total Tuition prior to withdrawal ($4,800), then the student is eligible for no refund, and Valar retains $4,800 (50% of $9,600).
  3. If the student has paid three-fourths of Total Tuition ($7,200), then the student is eligible for a refund of $2,400 ($7,200-$4,800) and Valar retains $4,800 (50% of Total Tuition).
