Program Enrollment After enrolling with UAC an Orientation Counselor will attempt to contact the student via phone and/or email to advise the student about the course work, support procedures and testing, if any. It is the student’s responsibility to determine whether credits, degrees, or certificates from UAC will transfer to other institutions or meet employers’ training requirements. This may be done by calling the prospective school or employer. 


Testing Information Practice tests and/or final exams exist online for the “Professional Bookkeeper”, “QuickBooks Specialist”, “Professional Tax Preparer”, and “Profit & Growth Expert” programs. After enrolling, the student should go to: www.uacourses.com to access the related content & testing system. Any student who successfully completes the course of study will be awarded an appropriate certificate of completion for the course. A student may take the final exam twice. Students needing a letter of recommendation should call or email the school. 


Grading Policy Final exams are used to evaluate performance and knowledge which then determines the final grade. A score of 90% or higher constitutes a comprehensive knowledge of course work and may earn a special designation (see below). A certificate of completion is issued by UAC for scores of 70% or higher. Scores below 70% result in a failing grade. No credit toward course completion will be granted for previous educational training or instruction.

If a student misses three (3) or more weekly coaching sessions in a row, Universal cannot guarantee the results of the coaching due to a loss of momentum during the process, and the student has forfeited his or her ability to return a program for a refund of any monies paid or due. Students may work at their own pace.

(Funds received will not be refunded until receipt and processing of all materials by UAC. Please allow 7 days to process) 


The Virtual Bookkeeper’s Roadmap - Due to the high level of content, forms, and checklists included in the Roadmap Program, the Roadmap Program does not have a money back guarantee. If a student is unhappy with the course, they will need to contact their coach, Veronica Wasek accordingly. 


For the Profit & Growth Expert program the UAC cancellation policy reads: “If after completing PGE, 3 months of Accountability Coaching and following the marketing steps within the Universal Practice Builder module for 12 months, you do not have an increase of more than $30,000 in annualized billings, simply return all materials to Universal Accounting Center for a 100% refund of any monies paid minus the enrollment fee, manuals, interest, & monthly membership/licensing fee.” If a student misses three (3) or more weekly coaching sessions in a row, Universal cannot guarantee the results of the coaching due to a loss of momentum during the process, and the student has forfeited his or her ability to return a program for a refund of any monies paid or due. To qualify for a refund, a student must document that they have followed the steps taught in the course for 12 months, and the student did not achieve the $30,000 in annualized billings. The student will be required to provide documentation of all marketing activity, including a completed marketing plan, a 12-Month Marketing and Sales Report, samples of all marketing materials, a list of all contacts made by date, a completed list of Natural Business Strategic Partners, and the completed worksheets in the curriculum.

(Funds received will not be refunded until receipt and processing of all materials by UAC. Please allow 7 days to process) 


A three-day cooling-off period for a refund, minus the enrollment fee, is allowed beginning when a student receives their login and password from UAC until midnight three business days later. A student wanting to cancel within this time frame must notify the school in writing via email or certified letter, postmarked within the three-day period. A student wanting to cancel within 30 days of enrolling may be eligible but will have to pay a 15% restocking/admin fee of the total tuition. The student must then request a Return Authorization Number to send back all the coursework at their expense at: www.universalaccounting.com/returns for a full refund. (Funds received will not be refunded until receipt and processing of all materials by UAC. Please allow 7 days to process)
