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.

Is there a prerequisite for this class? Or is it for beginners with no background in investing? Also, is there a lot of homework given? I would like to know to plan accordingly.
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi Mayelin! Thanks for your question. As personal investments is a beginner course there are no pre-requisites for it. It will most likely be run with a midterm, a final exam and class participation. Hope this helps!

Personal Investments
Reviewed by Mayelin N. on 5/5/2019
Professor Gaglani is very knowledgeable and is open to answering question and repeating the information so that all would grasp the concepts presented. His media use enhanced the lessons and made the material current. I think the material taught was a good foundation to start making some logical stock decisions. I wish there was a part two to this class where we go more in depth with technical analysis in real world scenario. Over all I recommend this class!
