Invoice Policy

Effective Monday, February 12, 2001, a new policy was implemented for the payment of course fees. As before, we will continue to accept cash, checks, and credit cards. However, we have changed the policy for company invoicing. We will now invoice the student’s company only upon receipt of one of the following documents:

  1. A company purchase order. This is the actual purchase order, not just a purchase order number. This may be faxed to us at 470-578-9085.
  2. A letter of authorization from the student’s company that is written on company letterhead. This letter must state the student has permission to take the course and that the company guarantees payment.
  3. A corporate educational voucher (currently being used by large companies such as Bell South, Ford Motors, AT&T, GTE, etc.)

We will be unable to register a student for courses until the purchase order or other paperwork has actually been received. Also, we will not accept contingent purchase orders, such as “must receive a grade of 70% or better.” If a student is concerned about losing a seat in a class, but must wait for their company to issue a purchase order, we suggest that the student pay with their personal or corporate credit card. The company can then reimburse the student.
