Switch Education Courses are open to individuals 18 years of age and older. These online courses do not award transferrable university credits.
After students have registered online, they will receive an email acknowledging that Switch Education (SE) has received and accepted the registration. Submission of registration along with full tuition payment constitutes acknowledgment and acceptance of these terms and conditions.
SE may not accept enrollment of any student from a jurisdiction wherein the provision of services to an individual in that country is prohibited.
If you make a purchase on our site, we use the third-party payment processor Stripe. Payments are encrypted through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data is stored only as long as is necessary to complete your purchase transaction.
All direct payment gateways adhere to the standards set by PCI-DSS as managed by the PCI Security Standards Council, which is a joint effort of brands like Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our site and related courses and its service providers.
