SECTION 212-B
Return of tuition for colleges, universities, professional, proprietary and graduate schools
Education (EDN) CHAPTER 16, TITLE 1, ARTICLE 5, PART 1
§ 212-b. Return of tuition for colleges, universities, professional,
proprietary and graduate schools. Any person who pays tuition to a
college, university, professional, proprietary or graduate school and
who demands its refund in writing before the thirtieth day before the
commencement of the term for which the tuition was paid shall be
entitled to one hundred percent reimbursement of such tuition within
sixty days of receipt of such demand by the college, university,
professional, proprietary or graduate school; provided, however, that no
deposit on tuition payable upon acceptance shall be governed by the
provisions of this section. The provisions of this section shall not
apply if a college, university, professional, proprietary or graduate
school enters into a nonrevokable contract for special or extraordinary
instructional services after receipt of tuition and in reliance of the
prospective attendance of the person paying such tuition so long as such
person was given notice before paying tuition that such a contract would
be entered into.

A violator of the provisions of this section shall be liable for a
civil penalty not to exceed ten percent of the amount of tuition which
was not refunded as herein provided.
