Course fees include tuition on the day(s) of the course offering, all relevant course materials and taxes (if applicable). Courses which include free shipping of certificates or other materials require 4-6 weeks for arrival at destination. All shipped items are sent through regular postal service without tracking. No guarantee is provided that shipped items will arrive at destination. If items do not arrive at destination, UNI-Prep will provide proof of shipment and students agree that this will render shipping services complete and will alleviate UNI-Prep of further responsibility or liability related to shipping. Students have the option to pay for premium shipping services which can guarantee delivery. In such instances, a shipping and handling fee is charged, along with any related shipping fees. Students can also pay for regular shipping (including a UNI-Prep shipping and handling fee and all related shipping fees) in case materials do not arrive at destination through no fault of UNI-Prep. UNI-Prep's will be deemed free of fault upon providing proof of shipment.

11 - Notarization & Authentication 

UNI-Prep Institute does not provide notarization or authentication services for certificates or diplomas, either to existing or former students. It is the student's responsibility to notarize, authenticate, legalize or apostille certificates and diplomas. Typically, students are able to have certificates or diplomas notarized and authenticated by contacting the appropriate governmental bodies and following the required steps. In some instances, the certificate or diploma may need to be notarized, either in the state of California or in another location. UNI-Prep does not provide this service, either for free or for a fee. However, at UNI-Prep's discretion and in exceptional circumstances, UNI-Prep Institute may provide only notarization service for a fee as determined by UNI-Prep. In virtually all cases, it is the students responsibility to get certificates or diplomas notarized. There are companies that provide notarization and authentication/apostille services for a fee and students may also make arrangements with these companies to obtain notarization or authentication services. If an additional original copy of a certificate or diploma is required for notarization or authentication purposes, students may order this for a fee from UNI-Prep Institute. Students may contact UNI-Prep to obtain names of some companies that offer notarization and apostille services.
