Money-Back Guarantee Program

The College of Central Florida is fully focused on preparing students for the modern workforce. Find out about our Money-Back Guarantee program below.

Money-Back Guarantee Eligibility

The Money-Back Guarantee program is optional. If a student wishes to participate, they must select a Money-Back Guarantee designated program when they apply for admission to CF and sign an agreement that they understand their rights, obligations and requirements as described in Section 1011.803, Florida Statutes.

Admitted students will then complete their academic program and seek employment. Job-seeking graduates will register with Handshake, Employ Florida and the employment assistance program at CareerSource. Once having met all of the Money-Back Guarantee program requirements listed below and having been unable to find employment, students may request a refund from CF. Only out-of-pocket tuition expenses paid by the student are eligible for refund.

Students who receive a job offer in their respective industry within the six-month window after graduation will be considered to have successfully found employment and will no longer be eligible to participate in the Money-Back Guarantee program or request a full refund of their tuition.
