It is the same as if...Read more »

I was selected in a program that has now deferred their start date due to CoVID. They requested a sizable deposit to secure my position in the program for their initial start date. The program no longer fits my timeline and they have refused to refund the deposit. What can I do in this situation?

However, your question does not indicate whether you have contacted the university directly to find out what there policy is, and what writing is it based on. Some schools have a refund policy based upon a timeline that...Read more »
It could depend on what types of representations or disclaimers it made. If it didn't make representations that it was accredited, it might be difficult.
