Attendance and Probation Policies

It is not our policy to terminate enrollment of any student, however, for the good of each student and class, the following rules must be observed:

Any student absent more than 3 (three) days, with 3 (three) tardies equaling one day, will be terminated. When excess absences are excused, but exceed the 10% absence policy, the student may re-enroll in any future class session in order to finish the said course. Make-up work will be allowed for all excused absences. Students enrolled will be placed on probation if not maintaining a passing grade after three weeks, and terminated if work is not brought up to a 75 average. Any excessive abuse of O.S.H.S. rules, including insubordination, use of alcohol or drugs, or serious misconduct will be cause for termination of enrollment.

All O.S.H.S. students desiring re-admission after termination must meet the terms and policies set forth in the current school enrollment agreement, catalog, and attachments. Previously paid tuitions will be credited to the student’s current account. All students requesting re-entry must have paid any tuition outstanding to the school. In considering maximum time for course completion after re-entry, the student must complete the units of instruction to be taken in not more than 1.5 times the normal time frame for completion of the same instruction.


The termination date for calculation of all refunds is the last day of actual attendance by the student.  OSHS requires notice of cancellation to withdraw in writing.  Failure to notify the school in writing will result in a $25 penalty (refund is reduced by $25).  If the student is below the legal age of 18, a parent or guardian must notify OSHS in writing.


  • Rejection:  An applicant rejected by OSHS will receive a refund of all monies paid.
  • Three-day Cancellation:  All monies paid by an applicant will be refunded if requested within 3 days after signing an enrollment agreement and making an initial payment.
  • Subsequently:  An applicant requesting cancellation after expiration of the Three-Day Cancellation period, but prior to entering OSHS (which includes any student considered a “no-show”) will receive a refund of all monies paid minus a registration fee of 4% of the contract price of the program, not to exceed $150. (However, any person considered to be a “no-show” will have to contact OSHS and request the refund.)
  • Students who have not visited OSHS facilities prior to enrollment will have the opportunity to withdraw without penalty within 3 days following either the regularly scheduled orientation procedures or following a tour of OSHS facilities and inspection of equipment.
  • First Week:  For a student terminating training after entering classes at OSHS, after expiration of the Three-Day Cancellation period, and after starting the program, but within the first week, the student will be refunded 95% of the course, minus $150, not to exceed $350 total.
  • After First Week:  For a student terminating training after one week but within the first 25% of the program, the student will be refunded 75% of the tuition, minus $150.
  • After 25%:  For a student terminating training after completing over 25% but within 50% of the program, the student will be refunded 50% of the tuition, minus $150.
  • After 50%:  Students, who complete more than 50% of the program, will not receive a refund.
  • Special Cases:  In cases of prolonged illness or accident, death in the family, or other circumstances that make it impractical to complete the program, OSHS will make a settlement, which is reasonable and fair to the student and the school.
  • Other Cancellation:  There will be No Refund on all material items of extra expense, such as books, tools, and major supplies that are not included in the cost of tuition.  These items become the property of the student upon purchase and acceptance.  They are not subject to REFUND.
  • School Cancellation: If for any reason the course is cancelled by the institution, any student enrolled will be refunded 100% of all monies paid.
