DISTANCE LEARNING SYSTEMS DISCLAIMER
It is understood that Distance Learning Systems is a test preparation company and not a college, university or credit granting institution; therefore, the student must be enrolled in a college or university and transfer test results into that institution for credit to be granted. Tutorials will be delivered to the student via a secure electronic delivery system. While Credit-by-Exam is accepted at 2,900 colleges and universities nationwide, it is the responsibility of the student to confirm acceptance of specific exam scores for credit at the school of their choosing. Additionally, It is the responsibility of the student to pay a testing fee to the independent
testing agency administering each exam. Test fees are not paid to Distance Learning Systems, nor is Distance Learning Systems responsible for paying testing fees on behalf of the student. If a student fails to pass an exam on the first attempt, Distance Learning Systems will allow the student to repeat that same course. Retakes of any course must occur within 6 months of submission of an official failure report to Distance Learning Systems. Tutorials and tutoring will be delivered to the student via contractual agreement from third party sources. I understand each course is self- contained; however the instructor may suggest additional reading materials that if purchased, will constitute an additional expense that I am solely responsible for. Completion time for each course is typically 4 to 8 weeks.
Distance Learning Systems claim of “97% National Pass Rate” is based only on the clients that have enrolled into the Distance Learning Systems program since 2009 and submitted their test scores up to December 2017 and therefore subject to change.
Distance Learning Systems claim of “2,000 Active Clients” is based on the clients that have enrolled into the Distance Learning Systems program and log into the online classroom within 90 days of a previous login over the entire 2017 calendar year. The number of actives clients is determined at the end of each month based on clients that are in a current class or scheduled for a future class date and therefore subject to change.
Distance Learning Systems claim of “40,000+ Credits Earned” is an accumulation of all the clients that have enrolled into the program and have passed their exam up to December 2017 and therefore subject to change.
Distance Learning Systems claim of “Money Back Guaranteed” is as follows: Distance Learning Systems will refund the money you paid for a course completed if you fail the course exam twice. In order to receive a refund for the Distance Learning Systems course you must provide a copy of your exam score and a receipt (proof of purchase) from the purchasing of the exam. Please send your failed score, and proof of purchase of the exam to:
