Offer, Payment and Billing Terms and Conditions
A. MEMBERSHIP TERM AND RENEWAL: The initial membership term is seven days (7 days) and if the member chooses not to cancel during the first seven (7) days they are then enrolled in a reccurring subscription. Upon expiration of the initial seven (7) day membership term, membership automatically renews every 30 days. You are financially responsible for all associated subscription fees until GA receives notice of cancellation via our home page "CANCEL ACCOUNT" link or via our online 'contact us' form located HERE, or by calling our customer service line at (888)420-1019 from 9am - 5pm MST.
B. CANCELLATION / REFUND POLICY: You may cancel your subscription at any time after your initial registration. To cancel, you may use our online cancellation form located at http://www.GrantAssist.com/cancel.php or the 'contact us' form located at http://www.GrantAssist.com/contact.php. Due to record keeping restrictions we are unable to process cancellations using any other methods. It is possible to contact a Customer Service Representative at the number listed on the "Contact Us" page, but this agent will simply ask you to go to the web site and fill out the cancellation form. All access to the Online Grant Education Center is logged and stored by GA - so we are aware of every time you (or someone using your computer or account) have used the site. Because access to the Online Grant Education Center is granted as a subscription service, any money paid for the subscription is NOT refundable after the subscription has expired. If we make a mistake and bill you after your membership has cancelled we will gladly refund all charges, but if you fail to cancel and your membership is renewed you will not be entitled to a refund of membership fees.
If you are entitled to a refund, you will receive the refund due as a credit to the same method or form of payment that was charged in the first place. For example, when we refund money to you we must refund it to the exact same credit card or bank account that it was taken from initially. GA has no ability or responsibility to refund money in any way other than back to the account that was charged at the time of the first billing.
After your 7-day subscription, you will only receive a refund of the initial membership fee if a cancellation request is actually received by GA in accordance with this policy (and using one of the methods of contact on our "Contact Us" page or the cancellation page) on or before midnight (12:00 am) MST time on the sixth (6th) day following your initial registration. GA will confirm receipt and processing of your cancellation request via email. GA is under no obligation to cancel your account or provide any refund unless your cancellation request is actually received by GA in accordance with this policy.
By signing up to become a member of Grant Assist Online Education Center, you'll be charged $57.93 for a monthly membership in the Online Grant Education Center.

You can cancel anytime after the initial 7-day membership, in which case you won't be refunded the month's subscription charge, but you'll have access to the Online Grant Education Center through the end of the month, and won't be billed again. If you cancel within the initial 7-day period or, if you are refunded for all or a portion of your subscription charge at any point, GA reserves the right to terminate your account either immediately, or at the end of then current billing month. When your account is terminated, you will no longer have access to the member site. There is no minimum membership period.
