Certificate Programs Policies

Registration Cancellation
Should you choose to withdraw from the Certificate program PRIOR to the first class start date, you may request a full refund in writing (minus a $20 processing fee). Submit your request via email to at least one (1) business day BEFORE the course start date.

If you select a refund, you will be mailed a check for the amount of your registration fee, minus a $20 processing fee. Absolutely no refunds will be granted after the first class session of the New Ventures tracks or the Advanced track.

Student Attendance
Students in the Certificate program are expected to arrive on time at the start of each class. Participants must attend every class session and fulfill the course requirements in order to receive a formal Certificate of Completion.

If you have enrolled for a course and fail to attend without providing notification, you will forfeit your registration fee.

We know how important continuing education is to professionals, and we are happy to offer discounted rates to you and your colleagues for most of our courses.

  • 10% JFK University Affiliate Discount: JFK University alumni, core and adjunct faculty, students and staff; Small Business Development Corporation affiliates; and Keiretsu Forum affiliates will receive a 10 % discount on the Certificate program fee.
  • 10% Group Discount: Three (3) or more participants who enroll simultaneously for the Certificate program are eligible to receive a 10 percent discount, each. Payment information must be given at the time of registration. Group discounts cannot be issued retroactively and all group members must register at the same time to secure the discounted rate. If any participants in a discounted group cancel their registration, the discount will be void. Group registrations must be mailed together in one envelope with the appropriate payment information. You may also register for a Group Discount by calling our registration team at (800) 557-1384. Group discounts are not available through online registration.

Financial Aid
Several types of financial aid may be available to qualified students. If you are a displaced or an unemployed worker, you may be eligible to register and receive state-designated Eligible Training Provider scholarship funds. JFK University is currently under review to become an Eligible Training Provider. Student-entrepreneurs wishing to apply for direct loan aid must enroll in New Ventures track Option 2 or the Advanced Certificate in Entrepreneurship. These certificate tracks are currently under review by JFK University Financial Aid and the Department of Education for financial aid eligibility. Please email for more financial aid information.
