Terms of Service and Code of Conduct
updated May 23, 2022
Thank you for enrolling in the Fully Funded Course and Mentorship Program (“Program”) established in 2019 and administered by ProFellow LLC. We hope that our Program brings you success, and we look forward to working with you. While you are in the Program, you agree, first and foremost, to follow the Program Code of Conduct. It is simple enough: while you are a member of the Program, we expect you and all students to conduct themselves in a dignified and professional manner at all times, and that you will not engage in any activity that is detrimental to the health, safety, or welfare of other Program participants or staff. If you can’t adhere to these basic requirements, we reserve the right to end your participation in the Program, without any reimbursement or liability to you, if the Program determines, in its sole discretion, that your behavior creates a disruption or hinders the Program or the enjoyment of the Program by other participants.
By enrolling in the Program offered by ProFellow LLC (“Company,” “we,” or “us”), you, the Participant identified below, (“Participant,” “your,” or “you”) and the Company agree to and accept the following legal Terms of Service, without modification, and you acknowledge reading them.
Enrollments in the Program purchased after October 1, 2021 include the following during the Term (as defined below):
One (1) individual Kick-Off Call with a Program coach;
Access to the Fully Funded online course;
Access to live Office Hours meetings for questions;
Access to live Special Session events;
Access to video replays and transcripts of live events;
Access to Individual Advising Sessions for an added cost; and

Your access to the Program may be revoked, without liability on Company’s part, for failure to abide by these Terms of Service or for failure to make timely and in-full payments to the Company related to your enrollment in the Program.
INDIVIDUAL ADVISING SESSIONS
Individual Advising Sessions with a Program coach can be purchased at the current cost located inside the online course during your Program Term (as defined below). An Individual Advising Session includes: a coach’s review and written feedback on up to 10 pages total of application documents and a 30-minute strategy call. Documents for review must be received at least 2 business days prior to the scheduled call, not including U.S. holidays. If documents are not received 2 business days in advance, we reserve the right to re-schedule or cancel your Individual Advising Session. Canceled Individual Advising Sessions are eligible for a refund as long as no review work on your documents has occurred.
We require at least 24 hours notice to re-schedule an Individual Advising Session. If you are a “no-show” for your scheduled Individual Advising Session, the Program coach will record a message for you during your scheduled appointment. “No-show” events are not eligible for re-scheduling or a refund.
Pricing for Individual Advising Sessions can change at any time.
“Bonus” Individual Advising Sessions and any other free “Bonus” received at enrollment have no monetary value and cannot be exchanged for discounts or other products and services. “Bonus” Individual Advising Sessions expire 12 months from the issuing date and are non-transferable.
Enrollments in the Program purchased after October 1, 2021: Your access to the Program will begin on the first day the Company receives your payment for the Program and will end 12 months or 18 months thereafter (the “Term” of the Program), depending on your selected membership Term. After the expiration of the Term, you will not have access to any part of the Program, including, but not limited to the Fully Funded online course and live events and replays. You will be able to remain in the LinkedIn group but you will no longer receive support for questions.
“Lifetime” enrollments in the Program purchased before October 1, 2021: "Lifetime" enrollments have a Program Term that extends to the end of this Program’s operation ( specifically, the "Fully Funded Course and Mentorship Program" established in 2019). The Program may end its operation at any time. Your access to the Program only includes the Program benefits provided at purchase.
At the time of enrollment, you will have the option of choosing between (a) the Pay in Full option or (b) the Payment Plan option. You agree that you will pay the requisite Program Fee you selected, whether the Pay in Full Program Fee or the Payment Plan Program Fee in its entirety, even if you choose not to apply to graduate school or are no longer able to participate in the online course and Program events for any reason.
If you select the Payment Plan option, you agree to pay monthly installments as specified in the current offering until your enrollment balance is complete. Your monthly installments must be paid each consecutive month starting thirty (30) calendar days after the Program Start Date until the then applicable Payment Plan Program Fee is paid in full. You authorize the Company to automatically charge the credit card on file for any and all Payment Plan Program Fee balances owed and you agree to keep this information current and up-to-date with the Company. If any payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, Company may revoke your access to the Program, without refund.
FAILURE TO MAKE TIMELY PAYMENTS (PAYMENT PLAN MEMBERS)
If any payment is insufficient or declined for any reason, the Company may remove you from the Program without liability or refund. Your removal from the Program due to your failure to pay the requisite Program fee does not excuse you from your obligation to pay the amounts owed in full.
If for any reason a payment is declined, you must provide an alternative, valid payment method. For each monthly payment, the payment processing system will make up to 4 attempts to retrieve payment from the payment method on file. Access to the online course and all live events and replays will be suspended until the monthly installment payment is made. If after the 4th attempt a payment is not made, the payment plan will be canceled and your course log-in and access to Program events will be revoked. There will be no refunds or reimbursements for previous payments. To re-instate your Program membership, you will need to pay off your entire enrollment fee balance within 6 months of your Program revocation. Your Program Term will not be adjusted or pro-rated for suspension periods due to payment defaults.
I understand that I am legally bound to these terms and required by law to make all payments on the agreed-upon payment dates. The Company reserves the right to report delinquent payments to credit agencies and collections agencies.
You understand and agree that there is a strict no-refund policy for this Program. Requests for cancellations and/or refunds will not be honored by the Company. You agree to make timely and full payments to the Company for the Program even if you choose not to attend graduate school or are unable to complete the Program. You authorize the Company to automatically charge the credit card on file for any and all Program fees owed and you agree to keep this information current and up-to-date with the Company.
