Refunds and Fees
Refunds for the HTP are strictly governed by the Terms and Conditions set forth upon enrollment in our programs and membership. Except where expressly stated, nothing in these Terms and Conditions modifies or otherwise alters those provisions.

HTP Payment Policy
Payments to HTP are made with the agreement and understanding that there is a fee or $35 or 10% of the cost of the transaction, whichever is greater, for returned checks or for credit card payments that are either disputed or refunded by a third party. Payment refunds are made according to the HTP refund policy.

Healing Touch Class Refund Policy:

Healing Touch Program (HTP) Satisfaction Guarantee
If within seven days of attending an entire Healing Touch class and using the skills that you learned either on yourself or another, if you don’t feel that you have received any value, you may get your money back. Write to the HTP office within 10 days of the end of your class and explain your experience and we will gladly refund your tuition.

HTP Class Instruction: All HTP classes are taught by a Healing Touch Certified Instructor (HTCI) who is certified and authorized to teach the class. Classes are sponsored in two ways:
   1. HTP Sponsored Class where HTP handles all class logistics and hires an HTCI to teach the class.
   2. Independent Class where the HTCI handles all class logistics and teaches the class.

Independent Classes
Independent HTP classes are sponsored and offered by Healing Touch Certified Instructors (HTCIs) to provide authorized training in the HTP classes. These classes are offered independent of HTP and are provided under agreement with HTP and according to the HTP class guidelines. The Independent instructor is responsible for the financial administration of their independent classes, including class refund policies.

Independent Class Refund Policy
Cancellation and refund policies are at the discretion of the Independent Instructor for their classes. No student refunds for Independent Classes will be given by HTP. Cancellation and refund policies for Package students are described in the Package Cancellations section.

HTP Sponsored Class Registration and Payment Policy
Registration includes a Tuition cost and may include a Room and Board or Retreat Center cost. All payments will be applied to the total amount due for the class. Classes must be paid in full or be participating in an HTP payment plan two weeks prior to the start date of the class or the students may be withdrawn and refunded.

HTP Sponsored Class Cancellations Requests
Cancellation requests by the student must be in writing, be received two weeks prior to the class start date and must contain the registrant's name, address, phone, email, class dates and location. Cancellations should be emailed to info@HealingTouchProgram.com, or mailed to the HTP office 15439 Pebble Gate, San Antonio, TX 78232. For Refund Request please print and submit this form: Student Transfer/Refund Form.

HTP Sponsored Class Refund Payments
For payments made to HTP via credit card within the previous 90 days, the refund will usually be in the form of a credit to the same card. Refunds will be less any associated fees resulting from the method of payment (i.e. credit card charges). After 90 days, the refund will be paid by check. If the tuition was paid by check, the refund will also be paid by check. HTP will mail refund checks to the registrants address as it appears on the cancellation request.

HTP Sponsored Class Refund Policy

1. Workshop Style Classes (Retreat center lodging not offered) Student cancellations must be made at least 48 hour prior to the start of the class with written notification provided to HTP. A cancellation fee of $100 applies to any class that is registered for and not attended without 48 hours notification prior to the start of the class. Students may still register for another class after the above cancellation fee has been paid.

2. Retreat Style Classes with required lodging (Level 4 and Level 5 Classes) Class cancellations made prior to two weeks (14 days) before the earlier of either the scheduled class date or the retreat center cutoff date (as noted in your confirmation letter) are eligible for a full refund.
For cancellations made after two weeks (14 days) prior to the earlier of the class or retreat center cutoff date, the registrant has a choice between the following options:

A. Transfer the full tuition to another scheduled class, and pay for any retreat center costs that result from the cancellation or transfer. The rescheduled class must be within one year of the cancellation date.

B. Receive a refund of the full tuition less a $100 administrative charge plus any charges from the retreat center incurred as a result of the cancellation.

Cancellations received after the class starting date are subject to forfeit, except in the case of extenuating circumstances. Extenuating circumstances, such as a death in the family, visit to the emergency room, etc. must be submitted in writing and must be approved by HTP.

Class Package Cancellations
Class Packages are nonrefundable after 30 days from the date of purchase.

Prior to taking classes you may get a full refund (within 30 days). After taking classes, you may get a refund less the full retail price of any classes taken. A cancellation fee of $100 applies to any class that is registered for and not attended without 48 hours notification to HTP and the instructor prior to the start of the class for level 1-3 classes. A cancellation fee of $200 for less than two weeks cancellation notice for Level 4 and 5 classes.
Students may still register for another class after the above cancellation fee has been paid.

Cancellation/Rescheduling of HTP Sponsored Classes
HTP reserves the right to reschedule or cancel any class or related event(s) in our sole discretion. In the event that HTP cancels or reschedules a class, the student may transfer and apply the class tuition and any room and board costs paid to HTP to another scheduled HTP class or may request a full refund of the class tuition and room and board paid. HTP is not responsible for, and will not reimburse, travel costs including airline tickets, hotels costs (other than HTP provided room and board costs), or any other costs or expenses the registrant may incur as a result of the cancellation or change. HTP reserves the right to change any instructor for any class or event without notice.

Healing Touch Program management reserves the right, at its discretion and without explanation, to keep a person from registering for a class or to require a participant to leave a class. Any refunds will be handled on a case by case basis by the discretion of the management team.

Product Returns:
All physical items being returned must be complete of all parts and accessories (if applicable), and be in original and unused condition. The item(s) being returned must be shipped back to HTP within thirty (30) days of the date of delivery. You are free to select the postal courier of your choice and you are responsible for return shipping costs. If all of these conditions are satisfied, HTP will refund the value of the returned item(s) in US Dollars, sales tax included, less our original shipping costs. We will not issue any refunds for returns that do not satisfy all of the conditions indicated above; provided, however, that you will have the option to request within thirty (30) days of being notified that you are not entitled to a refund that the item(s) be shipped back to you, at your own cost (you pay the return shipping costs), in the condition in which the item(s) were received by HTP.

Because we want to maintain the highest level of customer satisfaction and constantly improve our products and programs wherever possible, we may seek input from customers who have submitted a refund request through a short telephone call to understand why the refund was requested.

HTPA Membership Refunds
Refunds are available based on the remainder of your membership year. If a refund is applicable, it will be issued in the form of a credit back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase on the Site less any associated fees resulting from the method of payment (i.e. credit card charges).
Insurance bought through your HTPA membership: once your insurance application has been approved we are unable to offer any refunds on your insurance policy or HTPA membership. The insurance issues you a certificate which is good for the entire period of time specified on it, so refunds are not available for this insurance. 

Healing Touch Certification Refunds
Payment is processed at the time of registration for the certification application being submitted. Most applications have a non-refundable application fee as either a portion of or the entire payment. The application fees, including the non-refundable portion, are listed in the application packet you download and are subject to change without notification. If a refund is applicable, it will be issued in the form of a credit back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase on the Site less any associated fees resulting from the method of payment (i.e. credit card charges). The time that it takes for a refund credit to appear on your account may vary based on the form of payment used.

Healing Touch Integrative Care Refunds
Any Healing Touch class refunds will follow the Class Refund Policy as listed above. Any services contracted by HTICP may receive applicable refunds according to the contract between HTICP and the organization/individual receiving the service. Any refund that would be issued in the form of a credit back to the same payment method used to make the original purchase less any associated fees resulting from the method of payment (i.e. credit card charges).
