Do you allow non-refundable deposits?

We do support non-refundable deposits. However, we encourage not adding a deposit to increase the likelihood that a student will take your class.

Do we have to use your payment system?

If you so choose, students can pay the first payment through Dreambound’s system. That way, we send you only students who are serious about starting class. Dreambound offers schools the ability to use our payment system as a benefit for schools, but it isn’t required. 

How long do I have to wait before receiving my payment?

Schools receive payments within 3-5 business days of approving a student. Partnered schools receive payments within 1-2 business days.

How do you handle refunds if a student doesn’t end up enrolling, or if a student fails a background check?

In the case of a refund, let us know and we will refund the student. We are working on giving schools the ability to refund students by themselves, which should be released soon!

How do payments work?

If you so choose, Dreambound-referred students can pay the first payment through Dreambound’s system. That way, you can be sure that we’re sending you only students who are serious about starting class, and you don’t have to chase down students who aren’t serious about starting. 

This payment is sent to you after you approve the student, less transaction fees (2.9%, similar to other payment processors like Square and Paypal). We don’t make any money on this; we offer this as a benefit for schools. If a student makes additional payments through our system (ie subsequent payment plan payments), we send the full payment to you.
