“Pro-rata calculation is done taking into account the number of days a student remained in the course i.e., from the date of starting of the batch to the date of submission of application of refund”. The Scholarship achieved / secured by the student will not be considered while doing calculations on pro-rata basis.

For example, a course starts on 4th July and student joins on 16th July. He/she continues to attend classes and the last lecture, which he/she attended, was on 14th November, 2018. But if he/she has submitted refund application on 13th December, 2018, then the number of days to be counted for refund calculation will be from 4th July uptill 13th December = 163 days. It is multiplied by fee for one day, which is calculated by dividing course tuition fee without any scholarship by no. of days from the starting of course to the ending date of course as per prospectus of the centre where admission was taken.

Moreover, any fee due or pending payments or penalties due towards AESL shall also be debited from the security deposit amount.
Note for Course Fee: No Cash will be accepted for Course Fee which includes Registration Fee, Admission Fee & Installments.
For the Purpose of Calculation of Refund:
a. The date of commencement of the batch will be considered and not the date of joining of any student in the institute.
