Cancellation and Refund Policy:  All enrollments are subject to a three-business-day cooling-off period during which time the student may rescind the contract and receive a refund of all money paid. The cooling-off period may not end prior to midnight of the third business day after the latest of the following days: (i) the day the student signs an enrollment agreement; or (ii) the day the student pays the institution an initial deposit or first payment toward tuition and fees, including but not limited to the application fee. Evidence of personal appearance at the institution or deposit of a written statement of withdrawal for delivery by mail or other means shall be deemed as meeting the terms of the cooling-off period. A student enrolled in a correspondence institution may withdraw from enrollment following the cooling-off period, prior to submission by the student of any lesson materials or prior to receipt of course materials, whichever comes first, and effective upon deposit of a written statement of withdrawal for delivery by mail or other means, and the institution shall be entitled to retain no more than $200 in tuition or fees as registration charges or an alternative amount that the institution can demonstrate to have been expended in preparation for that particular student’s enrollment. Beyond this, no refunds will be granted to any student that is dismissed or withdraws after the cooling-off period. No refunds will be issued if a student does not attend their scheduled course. Any scheduling changes need to be approved by Park City Culinary Institute in writing. An exception can only be granted by the Director of Park City Culinary Institute, and any exceptions to provide full or partial refunds, or credits towards future courses, are at the complete discretion of the Director. We also comply with 38 CFR 21.4255 for Veterans. 

Registration and Disclaimer: Park City Culinary Institute is REGISTERED UNDER THE UTAH POSTSECONDARY PROPRIETARY SCHOOL ACT (Title 13, Chapter 34, Utah Code).  Registration under the Utah Postsecondary Proprietary School Act does not mean that the State of Utah supervises, recommends, nor accredits the institution. It is the student’s responsibility to determine whether credits, degrees or certificates from the institution will transfer to other institutions or meet employers’ training requirements.  This may be done by calling the prospective school or employer. The institution is not accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education.

Consumer Information: See accompanying Catalog for schedule, tuition, fees, as well as policies and other important information.

Rights: Park City Culinary Institute reserves the right to dismiss or not enroll any student that threatens the safety or peace of mind of themselves or other students. Any student inappropriately using kitchen tools or equipment, or not displaying common sense, may be removed from the class and possibly the program as deemed appropriate by the faculty and/or Director. Park City Culinary Institute will not tolerate sexual harassment or discrimination. Any student asked to leave the program may not be eligible for a Certificate, and may not be eligible for other services. In this circumstance, the Park City Culinary Institute reserves the right to terminate this enrollment contract with no further remedy or compensation due to the student beyond what is required by law.  All payments are non-refundable.  An exception can only be granted by the Director of Park City Culinary Institute, and any exceptions to provide full or partial refunds, or credits towards future courses, are at the complete discretion of the Director.  

Both parties agree that any dispute or claim between the student and Park City Culinary Institute (or any party affiliated with Park City Culinary Institute or any of its principals, officers or agents) arising out of or relating to a student’s enrollment at Park City Culinary Institute, whether such dispute arises before, during, or after the student’s attendance and whether the dispute is based on contract, tort, statute, or otherwise, shall be, at the student’s or Park City Culinary Institute’s election, submitted to and resolved by individual binding arbitration pursuant to the terms described herein. This policy, however, is not intended to modify a student’s right to file a grievance with the State Division of Consumer Protection or any other agency.

Either party may elect to pursue arbitration upon written notice to the other party. Such notice must describe the nature of the controversy and the remedy sought. This provision does not preclude the parties from mutually agreeing to an alternate arbitration forum or administrator in a particular circumstance. If either party wishes to propose such an alternate forum or administrator, it should do so within thirty (30) days of its receipt of the other party’s intent to arbitrate.


The arbitration shall have no authority to arbitrate claims on a class action basis, and claims brought by or against a student may not be joined or consolidated with claims brought by or against any other person. Any arbitration hearing shall take place in Utah. Each party will bear the expense of its own attorneys, experts and witnesses, regardless of which party prevails, unless applicable law gives a right to recover any of those fees from the other party. If the arbitrator determines that any claim or defense is frivolous or wrongfully intended to oppress the other party, the arbitrator may award sanctions in the form of fees and expenses reasonably incurred by the other party (including arbitration administration fees, arbitrators’ fees, and attorney, expert, and witness fees), to the extent such fees and expenses could be imposed under Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.

The Federal Arbitration Act (FAA), 9 U.S.C.§§ 1, et seq., shall govern this arbitration provision. This arbitration provision shall survive the termination of the student’s relationship with Park City Culinary Institute.


This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties pursuant to this Agreement shall in all cases be governed by and interpreted, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Utah without giving effect to any conflict-of-laws rule or principle that might refer the governance, the interpretation, construction or enforcement of this Agreement to the laws of another jurisdiction.

In the event that any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal, or unenforceable for any reason, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability shall in no event affect the validity of the remainder of this Agreement.


The terms and provisions of this Agreement are intended solely for the benefit of each party hereto and their respective successors or permitted assigns. It is not the intention of the parties hereto to confer any third-party beneficiary rights upon any other person or entity.

You should be in good physical and mental health. If you have a medical condition, you are advised to discuss your concerns with your doctor.

    • earthquakes, fires, natural disasters, acts of crime or terrorism

An injury or illness can impair one's general physical and/or mental health and may hinder one's future ability to earn a living, engage in business, social, or recreational activities, or generally impair one's ability to enjoy life. There may also be risk of injury, illness, or death resulting from causes not specified in this Notification of Hazards and Risks. In addition to acknowledging hazards and risks, the applicant must take responsibility regarding matters of safety involving self and others. Students are expected to demonstrate safe practices. Students must inform appropriate faculty of any relevant personal medical condition that might be hazardous or risky to self or others. A student may be required to submit permission from his/her personal physician to participate in culinary/pastry arts education activities.

I understand that the terms of this Enrollment Agreement are not subject to amendment or modification by oral agreement. All changes must be in writing and signed by both parties.

Park City Culinary Institute further reserves the right to discontinue my training for unsatisfactory progress or attendance, non-payment of tuition or fees, or failure to comply with Park City Culinary Institute’s policies and procedures.

I understand that my tuition charges are for the right to attend the course in which I am enrolled and are in no way contingent upon my satisfactory academic progress, personal satisfaction, or attainment of employment upon graduation.
