By registering for the GD course and receiving a Certificate of Completion, STUDENT states that he/she studied all of the material in the GD course, completed all of the quizzes at the end of the chapters, and completed and passed the final examination at the end of the course. If GD discovers that STUDENT has willfully misrepresented himself/herself, has cheated, or has attempted to circumvent the security validation mechanisms, STUDENT will be stopped from taking the course with no refund of the registration fees. STUDENT also may be prosecuted for perjury and other criminal acts.
Charges and Terms of Payment:By registering for the course, a fee in the amount of $25.00 will be charged to STUDENT. This includes access to all educational materials in the course as well as unlimited attempts at passing the Unit Exams following each chapter/unit of instruction. It also includes the price of the Certificate of Completion upon passing the course and the mailing of the certificate via US Mail. However, there will be additional charges for the expedited shipping of the certificate, which will vary based on the type of delivery method selected. All fees must be paid in full before STUDENT begins the course. STUDENT may pay by credit card, check, or money order.
