As an accredited institution by the Nebraska Department of Education, AIM Code School is able to accept veterans benefits from the GI Bill as payment. Our student coordinators are able to help students navigate using this as a payment option.
Section 103 Veteran Benefits Transition act (VBTA) policy:
Consistent with the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, Section 3679 of title 38, United States Code, Section 103, AIM Code School will not impose any penalties due to the delayed disbursement of a payment by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs on recipients of Chapter 31 and Chapter 33 VA
Benefits.

Cancellation and Tuition Refund Policy
While cancellation requests are accepted at any time during a course or workshop, refund eligibility will be based on the cancellation date. The enrollment date is determined by the date and time an enrollment agreement is approved by AIM Code School’s Director via email (contact information available at aimcodeschool.org). The cancellation date is determined by the date the student notifies AIM Code School in writing at the following email address: admissions@nullAIMCodeSchool.com. The cancellation and refund request email message must include the student’s name, course/workshop to cancel and reason for cancellation. A student who fails to attend a course/workshop is required to contact AIM Code School at admissions@nullAIMCodeSchool.com to begin the cancellation process – ‘no shows’ (class absence without notice) do not count toward the cancellation date (See Attendance Policy for additional information). Additionally, students who are terminated from AIM Code School workshops/courses for misconduct will not be eligible for refunds. The cancellation process will not begin until a formal written request is received using the method described above.
The following refund policy is in accordance with the Nebraska Department of Education code 92NAC41 Refund Policy:
Requests for course withdrawal and refund of tuition must be made in writing and be received by the AIM Code School Adimission’s officer at admissions@nullAIMCodeSchool.com no later than 72 hours after the enrollment forms have been signed. Requests must be received 72 business hours prior to the start of the course for a full refund. Requests received after a course’s completion cannot be fulfilled.
If cancellation occurs after 72 hours of enrollment, but before the course begins, or educational materials have been delivered, a refund shall be made of all tuition paid except for a registration fee of $150.
A full refund is due to students whose contracted education services are denied as a result of intentional deception, or misrepresentation of facts, or the use of advertising which is known to be false, inaccurate, or misleading.
A full refund is due an individual whose admission is denied by the school.
The school shall make all refunds due within 60 days following a student’s official drop date, or in the case of a student who does not return to school at the expiration of an approved leave of absence, within 60 days following the last day of that leave of absence.
The following is the refund policy for students who cancel after courses has begun or educational materials have been delivered.
Less than or equal to ½ of total course duration (ex. For a two week workshop, cancellation received before 1 week has passed since the workshop start date): 50%* of the full cost of the course
Less than or equal to ¾ but greater than ½ of total course duration (ex. For a two week workshop, cancellation received after 1 week, but before 1.5 weeks has passed since the workshop start date): 25%* of the full cost of the course
Greater than ¾ of total course duration. (ex. For a two week workshop, cancellation received after 1.5 weeks has passed since the workshop start date): 0%* of the full cost of the course
*All refund amounts for cancellation requests will be at the rate provided in the ‘Refund amount’ column less the course enrollment fee of $150.00. All unpaid referral bonuses, if any, will be void following student-initiated cancellation or instructor termination of student participation in any course/workshop (see Student conduct policy).
*Refund Policy for those receiving Veteran Education benefits – if a student should discontinue the course, the amount charged for tuition, fees and other charges for a portion of the course will not exceed the approximate prorate portion of the total charges for tuition, fees, and other charges that the length of the completed portion of the course bears to the total length. The amount paid in excess of the charges will be refunded, less the amount for books and any memberships if they have been issued.
