Because Flatiron is committed to seeing you receive a job offer in software development, certain paid Services offered by Flatiron through the Learn.co platform include job search assistance (“Career Counseling”) and/or a tuition refund (“Job-Offer Guarantee”). A Service that includes Career Counseling is hereafter referred to as a “Career Counseling Qualifying Program,” and a Service that includes a Job-Offer Guarantee is hereafter referred to as a “Job-Offer Guarantee Qualifying Program.”
In the event that you purchase a paid Service that provides for Career Counseling and/or the Job-Offer Guarantee the following Career Counseling and/or Job-Offer Guarantee terms and conditions shall apply (as modified and/or supplemented by any applicable Supplemental Terms – for example, any terms outlined on the Service’s product page or at the point of sale).
For purposes of this Career Counseling and Job-Offer Guarantee section of these Terms, the term “Qualifying Job Offer” means: an offer of a paid full-time job (an average of 35 hours or more per week, or multiple offers for part-time work constituting the equivalent of an average of 35 hours or more per week) in the United States as an employee, apprentice, intern or independent contractor in the field of software development or work working directly with the engineering team.
After completing a Career Counseling Qualifying Program, you will be put in touch with a career counselor to assist you with your job search. Such assistance will include helping you to identify and pursue job opportunities in the software development field. Career Counseling will include, at a minimum, access to:
Career Counseling (with respect to Career Counseling Qualifying Programs) terminates upon the earlier of: (i) your acceptance of a Qualifying Job Offer (as defined above); (ii) termination by Flatiron due to your failure to comply fully with these Terms, or (iii) the expiration of the six (6)-month period immediately following your completion of the program under the relevant paid Service. Flatiron reserves the right to revoke or withhold access to Career Counseling services from any student or graduate or who has received and turned down two Qualifying Job Offers.
Subject to and in accordance with these Terms, including any applicable Supplemental Terms, you may elect to upgrade from a paid Service that is a non-Career Counseling Qualifying Program to a paid Service that is a Career Counseling Qualifying Program, provided that you submit payment for the difference in price, net of any applicable discounts and scholarships, for the months you were enrolled in the non-Career Counseling Qualifying Program, between the Career Counseling Qualifying Program and the non-Career Counseling Qualifying Program.
Subject to and in accordance with these Terms, including any applicable Supplemental Terms, you may elect to downgrade from a paid Service that is a Career Counseling Qualifying Program to a paid Service that is a non-Career Counseling Qualifying Program.
If you participate in a Job-Offer Guarantee Qualifying Program, and you comply fully with the job search requirements specified below and you do not receive a Qualifying Job Offer (as defined above) within six (6)-months of your completion of the relevant program, you will be eligible for a full tuition refund.
To remain eligible for the Job-Offer Guarantee (in connection with a Job-Offer Guarantee Qualifying Program), you must be actively job seeking and meet all of the following job search requirements during the six (6)-month period following completion of the program under the applicable paid Service:
It is your sole responsibility to keep track of all job search required activities. Flatiron recommends that you keep a written log of your activities, back up all data, and make copies of relevant documentation. Flatiron may, at any time during the 9-month period following your completion of the relevant program, verify your compliance with the job search requirements and ask you for proof of compliance. Failure to present proof of compliance with the job search requirements may result in forfeiture of eligibility for the Job-Offer Guarantee.
If you believe that you are eligible for a tuition refund due to failure to obtain a Qualifying Job Offer, you must submit to Flatiron via email to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 9 months after completion of the relevant program a request for a refund setting forth the following: (a) your full name and contact information (address, phone number, email address); and (b) certifying that you:
Flatiron will review tuition refund requests and may seek from you further information and verification relating to your request. If Flatiron determines that you are entitled to a tuition refund under these Terms, a refund will be issued to you, typically within 30 days after receipt of your refund request (or, if Flatiron sought from you further information and verification relating to your request, within 30 days after receipt by Flatiron of such information and verification).
In the event that you have received a loan from a third-party lender to pay for a Job-Offer Guarantee Qualifying Program and become entitled to a refund pursuant to this policy, your full tuition refund will not include a refund of any interest, fees, or other payments (other than principal payments) made to the third-party lender (or to the assignee of the loan). In addition, any refund proceeds will first be applied to pay down any amount owing on the loan, with any excess then returned to you.
Your eligibility for the Job-Offer Guarantee (with respect to Job-Offer Guarantee Qualifying Programs), will terminate upon the earlier of: (i) your receipt of a job offer (as defined above); (ii) termination by Flatiron due to your failure to meet the job search requirements specified above; (iii) termination by Flatiron due to your failure to comply fully with these Terms; and/or (iv) the expiration of the six (6)-month period immediately following your completion of the program under the relevant paid Service.
If you are found in violation of or fail to comply with these Terms, Flatiron reserves the right to terminate your participation or enrollment in the program under any paid Service. If you are terminated from any such program, you will forfeit eligibility for any Career Counseling or Job-Offer Guarantee to which you may otherwise be entitled.
Nothing herein is intended to establish a fiduciary relationship, partnership or joint venture between you and Flatiron.
