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.

I wish the teacher could have been more enthusiastic and passionate about this subject. Observing around the classroom, my fellow students looked bored overall. Some students were even falling asleep during class. Found myself constantly looking at the time since the teacher had such a lackluster, dull, sleepy, vibe throughout the entire weekend during both classes. Both classes felt like a substantial waste of a weekend. Teacher wasn't really fond of answering any in-depth questions about Real-Estate. At the end of the two-day course Sunday, I felt like I wasted my $369. The teacher is a huge factor in the determining the success or failure of a seminar and this 2-day seminar course was definitely a failure. At the end of both classes I felt more confused about Real-Estate instead of feeling more confident under this "teacher." Please stay FAR away from this course and save your hard earned money until Baruch College learns to finds a better, more exciting, more fresher, charismatic, insightful teacher.

the class was a waste of time and money. the instructor, though clearly experienced, was woefully unprepared to teach. he was vulgar and unprofessional throughout. a syllabus was distributed at the first class but the items on it were not covered. he spent most of the time talking about himself; some of it covering his real estate experiences and a lot of it not. class was supposed to be 2 hr, 50 min. per session. in fact, it ranged from 1 hr 30min to 2 hr 15 min. he may have a lot of years in the business but, he has no business teaching. i could hear the instructor across the hall talking about cap rates; describing what they were and how to calculate them and i was wishing we had that instructor instead.
