You may visit the Site without registering. All users of this Site agree that access to and use of this Site is subject to the following terms and conditions and other applicable law. The Company provides in-person educational courses in California (the “Courses”). You agree that by using this Site and using any Course you are at least 18 years of age, or visiting under the supervision of a parent or guardian, and legally able to enter into a contract.

Academic Accreditation

Beach Coders Academy does not offer bachelors, associates, masters, doctoral or other recognized degrees. The Company’s offerings are internally measured and are not intended to be transferrable to other college or post graduate credits, nor does the Company intend to move towards that end in the foreseeable future.

Beach Coders Academy may or may not be subject to regulation and is within appropriate regulatory compliance in the markets where it operates. Beach Coders is not approved to operate by the California Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education however Beach Coders Academy (under El Camino College) is on the California Eligible Training Provider List established and maintained by the California Workforce Investment Board and meets the requirements for continued listing.

Course Results

Beach Coders may publicize and promote the outcomes of certain participants in its Courses however Beach Coders cannot guarantee any outcome, job, or specific income level of employment from the skills garnered from completing courses. The Company is not a job placement agency. Beach Coders will use best efforts on sources of information regarding average salaries and job demand in the web technology field. As with any endeavor in life, past results do not guarantee future outcomes.

STUDENT OUTCOMES ARE HIGHLY VARIANT AND A FUNCTION OF NUMEROUS ELEMENTS BEYOND THE COMPANY’S CONTROL SUCH AS BUT NOT LIMITED TO MARKET CONDITIONS, INDIVIDUAL APTITUDE, PERSONALITY, PERSEVERANCE AND EMPLOYER REQUIREMENTS OUTSIDE OF THE SKILL SETS OFFERED IN THE COURSE WORK.

The Company employs best efforts to provide present day relevant information in an area of rapid change and disruption. We celebrate student success stories to highlight those that have achieved a notable outcome in the spirit of encouragement towards success but never as a guarantee.

Further, completing the Course does not guarantee that you will become proficient in the subject matter of the Course itself. Our instructors and staff work to insure retention and comprehension but not all students have the same level of aptitude and therefore, will come away with varying levels of overall ability. Many students may find employment outside of the course subject matter, while others will use it to enhance their existing skill sets. The Company admissions interview will advise of these matters and make note of these points before allowing enrollment in the Courses.

CANCELLATION and REFUND POLICY

You can withdraw from your course at any time and a refund credit (IF ANY) will be determined by the policies outlined below. Withdrawal from a course happens in one of the following situations:

If you purchased through Coursehorse, then our Cancellation policy applies to your purchase. If you have any questions, please contact CourseHorse here.

  1. You notify Beach Coders in writing of your withdrawal, which can be done via email or snail mail. Withdrawal is effective when Beach Coders receives notice, or the date the notice is mailed, whichever happens first.
  2. Beach Coders terminates your enrollment for failure to maintain satisfactory progress; failure to abide by Beach Coder’s rules and standards of conduct; absences in excess of maximum set forth by Beach Coders; and/or failure to meet financial obligations to Beach Coders.
  3. DEPOSITS. Students desiring to reserve a seat for a specified class may remit a non-refundable deposit to hold their spot. Deposits are typically 50 percent of the course fee. If a student does not begin the specified class, they will have up to 30 days to schedule and engage a future class with notice. If a student does not engage in a class after the 30 days or no notice is received, the deposit shall be considered earned and the full tuition will be required to enroll in a future class.
  4. REFUND POLICY. Any refunds will be paid after 30 days of withdrawal. All Refunds will be less a registration fee of 25 percent of the total course fee and less the cost of any course materials that you have received. Beach Coders offers immersive 1on1 and small class settings with industry professionals to deliver maximum learning value. In order to deliver this product, the school relies on assured student attendance to deploy the instructors and assign the course room. That being said, If you cancel ten or more days before the scheduled course begins you will receive a 50 percent refund of a full tuition previously paid. From 10 days before the start of the course through the first day of class, the full tuition is considered earned and there are no refunds. This clause applies to all course modalities including live classes, one-on-one sessions and online courses. If a student has opted for tuition finance either directly or with an official Beach Coders affiliate credit provider, all payments will remain in force until full payment is collected by the school. There are no refunds whatsoever on course reservation deposits.
  5. Beach Coders reserves the right to alter schedules at will as to best serve the company and the students including but not limited to moving the class start date until a quorum of attendance is confirmed, altering the class meeting schedule to accommodate single or low student enrollment and adjustments for federal Holidays.
  6. Generally, students are required to complete the course(s) during the period in which they begin and may not spread their attendance across more than one course period to complete. In special circumstances, a student may acquire a waiver to pause and complete their course across more than one course time. If a student has a schedule conflict that compels them to start on another date other than the one they have registered for, they may do so with notice up to 30 days into the future from the registered start date. After 30 days, the tuition is considered earned.
  7. All of the above terms are subject to revision without notice.
