You have 3 days from your signature date on the “Enrollment & Order Form” to cancel the agreement in writing (via fax or e-mail to THI) and receive a full refund. After you receive the course materials or products, you have another 3 days to review them. If you are not completely satisfied, you may return them in their original condition for a full refund, paying only for shipping. Call for approval on a return. After this time no refunds on course materials or products can be considered. Mechanically defective items, however, will gladly be exchanged for the same item upon receipt of the damaged items within 30 days of original receipt.
Course tuition (which includes materials cost) and Additional Products prices are listed in the “Enrollment & Order Form.” After reviewing and approving your application and order, and after checks and credit cards have cleared, THI will mail you your materials.
US Shipping: To locations within the US, items are usually shipped UPS ground or through USPO mail and generally take 7-10 business days for delivery.
International Shipping: US shipping is charged at check-out. Then we will email you the exact additional shipping plus $5 handling that is due for your international location. When you get this email, go to the Donate button on the Order Form and enter that amount. (Items are usually insured at approximately 1/4 of tuition for customs purposes. Foreign duties and taxes are paid by the recipient.) Items are shipped through USPO or FedEx, as available, and generally take 7-10 business days to reach customs.
If you prefer faster delivery to any location, that is always available upon request at the additional applicable fee.
A $20 fee is assessed on all returned checks; and if any payment is not able to be cashed or credited this may also result in immediate dismissal at THI’s sole discretion.
Time payments are available through THI as follows: Call or email us for approval. You agree to the following: a $150 processing fee is paid with tuition over 5 payments. No interest is charged. Shipping is paid up front. THI will automatically charge your credit card or accept payment for the 5 equal installments on about the same day of the month for the 5 months from your enrollment. THI has the right to hold your credit card for security. If any one payment is not received and/or able to be cashed within 10 days after the due date the full amount becomes due and payable immediately and this also may result in immediate dismissal and therefore the non-issuance of certification at the sole discretion of THI. Certificates are issued only after all payments are received in full and in a timely manner.
Withdrawal Refund Policy
After the 3-day review period of the received home study course materials, tuition will only be refunded as follows. Refunds are prorated based on the application signature date, the date stamp of the request to withdraw, and the length of the course (6 months for “Transpersonal Hypnotherapy” and Clinical Hypnotherapist packages of courses; 3 months for all other home study courses). The maximum refund will be the tuition paid less the materials cost (50% of tuition) and less a cancellation charge ($150 or 25% of tuition less materials, whichever is less). The refund is calculated as a percentage tuition less materials: within the first 10% of the course the refund is 90%; between 10% and less than 25% the refund is 75%; between 25% and less than 50% the refund is 50%; between 50% and less than 75% the refund is 25%; after 75% completion of the course the student is responsible for 100%. Refunds are mailed within 30 days after the request to withdraw. The policy for granting credit for previous training does not impact the refund policy.
Students study at their own pace, so there is no policy regarding postponement of starting date and its effect on refunds (Rule III.H.3).
Advanced Standing Credit for Previous Study
If you are a graduate from another school and would like to advance your certification with THI, submit proof of prior studies such as previous certificates, transcripts or signed letters documenting the hours, material covered, dates and instructors’ names. A THI staff member will need to approve your previous training hours. At the discretion of the THI Administration, prior training and/or experience may allow you to enter with credits and advance your certification with THI.
Prerequisites for Enrollment
A high school diploma, GED or equivalent, emotional maturity, high principles and a responsible attitude are required for enrollment. Prospective students may discuss personal, educational and occupational plans with THI staff prior to enrolling.
Enrollments are accepted year round based on the home study format. After completing the Enrollment Form, return it with your tuition. Upon acceptance we will forward the course material to you. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age, religious preference, national origin or marital status.
Non-Acceptance & Discontinuance
If THI does not accept your enrollment, your paid tuition (which includes materials cost) will be refunded in full. If THI discontinues educational services during your enrollment period (6 months for “Transpersonal Hypnotherapy” and 3 months for other courses) and you have not yet completed the course, you will be refunded your tuition less the cost of materials. The cost of materials is 50% of the course tuition.
All course assignments are to be received by THI in a timely manner (within 6 months from the date of enrollment in “Transpersonal Hypnotherapy” and within 3 months for all other home study courses). If you are unable to complete assignments within the stated time-frame, notify THI by e-mail, fax or letter of your desire for an extension. If THI finds your request to be satisfactory, it may grant a 30 day probationary period for you to complete the course assignments. Further extensions are at the sole discretion of THI.
THI’s feedback system is designed to build self-confidence and competence. Exams (open-book) and student materials are graded under the Director’s supervision. “Transpersonal Hypnotherapy” students must obtain a passing score of 75% to receive certification with THI. Students who fail to pass the exam may request to retake it one time. THI will then mail you a second exam which needs to be received by THI before the course assignment due date (or probationary due date if applicable). All other courses are graded pass/fail. After passing, your certificate (which is also notification of a passing grade) will be mailed to you.
In any course, if you have difficulty, you may request tutoring at an additional cost at current rates.
Materials turned into THI become the property of THI. Please retain copies for your files if you would like them.
Transferability of Credits
Transferability of THI credits to any other educational institution is not guaranteed. THI does not hold written agreements of current acceptability of credits on file from other institutions (Rule III.H.1.0).
THI does not promise or provide placement assistance to graduates; however, we will send a statement of your training, including CEU’s, to a person, school or organization of your choice at standard rates. THI maintains school and student records for no more than 6 years, according to state law.
THI does not make claims regarding future income since throughout the country the need for hypnotherapists varies. Those with good therapeutic and self-promotion skills usually have as much work as they target for themselves over a reasonable amount of time. Jobs in this area are generally self-created as small businesses; some choose to affiliate with health practitioners. As hypnotherapy becomes more accepted, more people will seek hypnotherapists. Income varies by region and time on the job and are established by the individual. Success in the field requires initiative.
Conduct & Dismissal
Participants are expected to conduct themselves professionally. This includes, but is not limited to, complying with THI policies and paying tuition in full. Failure to do so is cause for dismissal. Other causes for dismissal include, but are not limited to, any behavior which might jeopardize THI or its reputation; cheating; theft; verbal or physical abuse of any member of the THI community; breach of privacy or confidentiality. If a participant is dismissed, re-entrance into the program will be at the sole discretion of THI.
If you have a concern, please speak with the THI director as soon as possible. If you feel it needs more resolution, submit your concerns in writing to the address listed herein. We will investigate your concern further, attempt to resolve it and notify you of THI’s position on the situation within 30 days. If you wish to appeal this decision, you may make a written request for arbitration and the following applies: The parties understand and agree that should any claim, controversy or dispute arise out of, or in connection with, this agreement, the matter may be submitted by any party to binding arbitration.
