Stratford Career Institute Settlement Information
Stratford Career Institute has agreed to settle FTC charges that it misled people about its high school program.
As part of the settlement, Stratford must notify current students of their right to cancel their enrollment in the high school program. The company also must pay $250,000 to provide partial refunds.
Has the Stratford refund program started?
Not yet. We expect to begin the process in 2017.
Who is eligible for refunds?
Graduates and current students who enrolled in the high school program after January 1, 2011 may be eligible to apply for a refund.
To be eligible, current students must cancel their enrollment within 30 days of receiving a notice from Stratford. Look for an email entitled “Your Enrollment in Stratford Career Institute, Inc.’s High School Diploma Program” or a message entitled “Important Message About Your Enrollment” in the message center in Stratford’s eservice online student center.
What do I need to do to get a refund?
If you are a current student, you must cancel your enrollment within 30 days of receiving the notice from Stratford to be eligible.
Otherwise, you don’t need to do anything right now.
How much will I get back?
It depends on how much money you lost and how many people apply for refunds. It probably won’t be the full amount you paid.
Do I need to pay to get a refund?
Absolutely not. The FTC never requires you to pay money to get a refund. Don’t believe anyone who promises an FTC refund in exchange for a fee.
