  2. Refund and Payment Policy

9.1 From the first day of enrollment, students have 30 days to request a refund. All payment plans will remain active unless a cancellation request occurs within the first 30 days. We will not issue refunds after the 30-day period is complete. For example; if a student enrolls on March 1st, they must submit their request to cancel by March 30th. If they request a refund on day 31, they will not be entitled to a refund. Students enrolled with a payment plan are responsible for paying for the course in full after the 30-day refund policy is complete. Absolutely no refunds will be given after a 2nd payment is authorized on monthly or annual plans. If a student downloads a certificate of completion, they forgo eligibility to the 30 day refund policy. We only process account adjustments/refunds Monday – Friday: 8 – 4 pm PST. If a payment is scheduled for a weekend date or holiday, students must contact [email protected] at least 2 days in advance to request a refund and cancel a payment plan.

9.2) If a program is purchased through the Evolutionary Herbalism App, our 30 day refund policy is no longer applicable. All payments will be processed outside the Evolutionary Herbalism Company and in doing so, it is out of our control to adjust accounts or issue refunds. The student will be bound to the terms and conditions of IOS and Android providers. For questions about refund eligibility please reach out to Apple or Google Play.

9.3) If any part of the program you have registered for is downloaded within the 30-day refund policy you will forego your right to a refund. This includes any audio downloads, transcripts, PDFs, notes, and any other downloadable content. If you download a portion of the program you will be responsible for completing your payments in full for the program and we reserve the right to continue to bill for the program.

9.4) Students are eligible to request a one time pause for up to 90 days should a financial difficulty occur while committed to a payment plan in the following programs: Alchemical Herbalism, Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Program, Astro-Herbalism, Elemental Herbalism, Botanical Constellations. In the event of suspension, it is the students’ responsibility to contact [email protected] one week before the upcoming scheduled payment is due to make the request. A member from our support team and the student will determine and agree to a new start date. An automated email will notify the student one week prior of the scheduled new start date. Refunds will not be issued without adequate notice and will not be issued once the payment takes place. If the 90 days is overdrawn, a re-activation fee will be applied upon the renewal of a suspended payment plan. The reactivation fee is $50.00 for Alchemical Herbalism and the Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Program, and $25.00 for Astro Herbalism, Elemental Herbalism, and Botanical Constellations. We do not offer suspensions for Materia Medica Monthly

9.5) In the event of a declined or failed payment, the School of Evolutionary Herbalism automates multiple attempts to collect the failed payment. If a payment plan fails, our system will automatically attempt to run that same failed payment every 2 days for 14 days, and if one of the following automated payments is authorized and paid successfully, we will not issue refunds. If a failed or declined payment is not cleared within 10 days, the School of Evolutionary Herbalism reserves the right to cancel the student’s enrollment and remove student access to their course. Upon cancellation, the student is obliged to contact our team to resolve the failed payment plan. If the failed payment is not resolved within 90 days, a re-activation fee will be applied upon return. It is the student’s responsibility to contact our support team with their request to pause or cancel payments prior to the scheduled payment date.

9.6) In the event that a student wishes to pay off a payment plan in full, the student may contact our support team and make one full payment that equals the total balance remaining from the original payment plan they registered with.

9.7) If a student wishes to switch a payment plan, they are eligible to switch plans within 30 days of their first purchase date. After 30 days, the student will be locked into that payment plan and total payment amount that they originally signed up with.

9.8) Transference from one program to another is only possible between Alchemical Herbalism and the Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Program and must be done within the first 30 days of enrollment.
