Cancelling and Refunding Courses

This article describes how to enable the Cancellation & Refund option for courses.

Introduction to Cancellation & Refunds

With the Cancellation & Refunds feature, learners can now easily cancel a course that they are currently enrolled in, and receive a refund if they do so within a specified period of time. Enabling this feature will also allow you to collect an Administration Fee from learners choosing to cancel.

Learners can cancel their course by navigating to Cancel Course on their My Account page. Once they click Cancel and Refund, learners will also be prompted to provide a reason for their cancellation.
