Tutorial Terms & Conditions:

Last updated on July 17, 2015

By using cztutorials.com or collegezoom.us (“Website”) or purchasing, accessing, or using any part of an online product or tutorial (“Licensed Software”) provided by College Zoom, Inc. (“College Zoom”), whether free or for a fee, you are agreeing to be bound by the terms and conditions herein (“Agreement”). If you do not agree to this agreement in its entirety, you may not use this Website or Licensed Software.

All sales are final, no exceptions. The purchase or use of any Licensed Software does not promise acceptance to any college or university. The “effective date” for this agreement is the day you either: purchase, access, or use licensed software, whichever occurs first.

1. Single-User License Grant: When you purchase, access, or use Licensed Software from College Zoom, College Zoom grants you a single, limited-time, single-user license grant. This is a non-assignable, nontransferable license to be used solely by you and for non-commercial purposes.

College Zoom currently offers three tutorials: 1) The activity sheet tutorial, 2) the essay topic tutorial, and 3) the essay writing tutorial. These fall under Licensed Software. Access to the entire first session of each of these tutorials is provided free of charge and accessible at cztutorials.com and collegezoom.us/tutorials. By clicking the “Next Step” button on the first page of each tutorial, you agree to this Agreement.

Each tutorial comprises of more than one session. If you would like to continue a particular tutorial after the free session, you may gain a one time, limited time license to access the remaining sessions of said tutorial for $375 (“License Fee”). That License Fee gives you a 24 hour window of access to each one of the tutorial’s sessions. The 24 hour timed access for each tutorial begins when you individually activate each session’s activation button some time after purchase. Upon activation, the timer will start and after 24 hours access to that session will expire. On average, students can complete each session in 1 to 2 hours. If, for any reason, your access expires before you complete a session, each session can be individually re-ordered at a price of $50 per session.

1-on-1 Meeting Terms & Conditions:

Terms and Conditions:

Last updated on September 30, 2016

1. Prepayment Deposit: A refundable deposit for counseling must be paid in advance of each meeting to officially confirm and exclusively reserve your meeting time. Until this one hour prepayment is made, your meeting is not officially confirmed or scheduled. If we’ve discussed an agreed upon meeting time with you but your prepayment deposit is not received, another customer may reserve the time slot you requested if his or her prepayment deposit is received first.

Note: package customers who have a minimum amount of 1 hour in their deposit accounts are exempt from the 1 hour prepayment deposit. Their meetings are automatically confirmed upon agreement of a meeting date and time.

2. Your Meeting May Be Over Your Prepayment Amount: If your meeting ends up being over the time allowed by your prepayment deposit, an additional balance will be due for any additional time. The rate for our general and appeal 1-on-1 meetings is $200 per hour (or $175/hr for certain package clients) and the amount will be billed pro rata.

3. Billing: Once a meeting has been scheduled, billing starts at the agreed upon meeting time. This time is deducted from your 1 hour prepayment so please be on time for your meetings. For virtual meetings, being on time means that you are on Skype and your Google Document is open so that we can initiate the call and begin working immediately.  It’s important that you ensure your Skype is working correctly before the meeting. Technical difficulties on your end will not delay the start of the meeting time for billing purposes.

4. Travel Time Fee: For visits to your home or specially requested meeting locations, a rate of $5 per mile will be assessed to the round-trip commute to and from your home (or the specially requested meeting location). This amount will be added to your 1 hour prepayment invoice.

5. Rescheduling and Cancellation Policy: Once your meeting is confirmed. You may cancel or reschedule anytime up to 48 hours prior to our agreed upon meeting time without penalty. Cancelling or rescheduling between 48 and 24 hours of the agreed upon meeting time incurs a penalty equal to a 30 minute deduction of 1-on-1 time for package customers or half of the prepayment deposit for non-package customers. Cancelling or rescheduling within 24 hours of the agreed upon meeting time will result in a 1 hour deduction for package customers or the forfeiture of the entire prepayment deposit for non-Package customers. 6. No Show Policy: If a student does not show up to a meeting 15 minutes after the start of the agreed upon meeting time, the meeting will be cancelled and a penalty equal to the amount of the prepayment will be assessed.

7. Subsequent Meetings: After each meeting, any balance due for that meeting must be paid in full before the next meeting can be scheduled.

8. Forms of Payment Accepted: College Zoom accepts: cash, checks, and credit cards. If you wish to pay by check, please notify us. The check should be made payable to College Zoom and mailed to: College Zoom, 21021 Erwin St. #519, Woodland Hills, CA 91367 as soon as possible. Please note: Your payment must be received before any subsequent meetings can take place.

9. Late Payments and Delinquency Charges. All outstanding balances due that are not paid within 30 days of the final bill you receive for your meeting are immediately subject to a $20 monthly delinquency fee and will be charged $20 again for every 30 days of delinquency.

10. Additional Terms and Conditions: Services are non-transferable and are for the exclusive use of the customer. The purchase of our service does not promise acceptance to any particular college or university.  All sales are final, no exceptions.

11. Academic Advising: It is your responsibility to ensure that you satisfy a college’s minimum requirements for admission before and after you apply. We do not provide academic advising to ensure that you satisfy admissions requirements for required prerequisite coursework. This information is free if you consult the counselor at your school or call your desired colleges directly.

12. MBTI Assessment Fee: If an MBTI Career Assessment is requested, the $50 cost of providing the MBTI assessment will be added to your prepayment invoice.
