Refund Policy
Students MUST submit a detailed written request to withdraw from a course, which CourseHorse will then forward on to the school. The request must state the reason of cancellation.

Refunds or credits are available: Full refund or credit if request to withdraw is made 3 business days before the first class session. 50% refund or credit if request to withdraw is made before the second class session. After the second class session no refunds or credits will be granted.

No refunds or credits will be issued for classes that meet four sessions or fewer. Classes include seminars, intensives and workshops.

All refunds will have a $25 processing fee deducted from the course refund as well as a $20 registration fee ($45 total).

When Baruch College cancels a course, refunds are made automatically. If for any reason the department cancels a session, then a make-up session will be offered.


Students who wish to withdraw from a course must notify the CAPS Office in writing. Failure to complete a course, ceasing to attend class, notifying the instructor of your desire to withdraw, or general dissatisfaction with a course does not constitute a withdrawal and does not entitle you to a refund. Instructors are not permitted OR able to process withdrawals, transfers or refunds.


If a student misses a session, the department unfortunately does not authorize the student to make up that missed session in another section. If the instructor informs the student to visit another section of his class, then that is between the student and the instructor.

Question from Lynn
Is a certificate given upon completion?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Lynn! A student receives a grade at the end of the course. A completion letter can be provided if requested.
Question from Lynn
Can you take the certified bookkeeping course ($1499) after completing this one or is there a waiting period?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Lynn! If a student is new to the field and has only taken the Essentials course they would not suggest taking that course. They would suggest essentials, advanced and then the prep course. The student, however, can opt to take any course as long as they understand the risk.

Christian Chirila is a great teacher. Started the class not knowing the first thing about bookkeeping and learned a great deal through this course. Would highly recommend.

Highly recommend this course at Baruch College (a college within the City University of New York system) and its instructor, Samuel Harris. If you’re looking to learn how to do basic bookkeeping- particularly if you have or plan to have your own business- this course has what you need. I strongly suggest two things to succeed in the course: a) do both the practice problems and more homework than assigned b) ask Samuel for help.
