Certificates will be issued by the ACTVET iCampus under the name of the underlying Member from where the course originated.

Registration and Payment. Subject to the foregoing, you may be required to pay a fee to receive an ID Verified Certificate of Achievement (a “Verified Certificate”) with respect to certain courses on the Site, in which case, the following processes and requirements shall apply:

  • As part of your registration, you will be prompted to submit a photo of yourself, along with one other form of photo identification (“photo ID”). Although these items are collected by ACTVET iCampus in accordance with these TOU and the ACTVET iCampus Privacy Policy, you should be aware that the actual authentication of your identify is performed by an ACTVET iCampus third party service provider. Please refer to the Privacy Policy for additional details on how we handle those items once received by us.

The privacy statement posted at the payment landing page operated by such third party vendor will govern the submission and processing of your payment details. Please familiarize yourself with those terms prior to initiating a transaction.
  • Once your payment transaction is completed, you will be re-routed back to an ACTVET iCampus confirmation page and will receive a confirmation email with your name, order number and the payment amount. Please retain this email for your records as this information will be required if you seek a refund from ACTVET iCampus, as described below.
No Other Enrollment. When you take a course through ACTVET iCampus, you will not be an applicant for admission to, or enrolled in, any degree program of the Member as a result of registering for or completing a course provided by such Member through ACTVET iCampus. You will not be entitled to use any of the resources of the Member beyond the online courses provided on the Site, nor will you be eligible to receive student privileges or benefits provided to students enrolled in degree programs of the Member.

You agree to defend, hold harmless and indemnify ACTVET iCampus and the ACTVET iCampus Participants, and their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, officers, faculty, students, fellows, governing board members, agents and employees from and against any third-party claims, actions or demands arising out of, resulting from or in any way related to your use of the Site, including any liability or expense arising from any and all claims, losses, damages (actual and consequential), suits, judgments, litigation costs and attorneys' fees, of every kind and nature.

Entire Agreement. These TOU, the Honor Code, and the Privacy Policy together constitute the entire agreement between you and ACTVET iCampus with respect to your use of the Site, superseding any prior agreements between you and ACTVET iCampus regarding your use of the Site.

Waiver and Severability of TOU. The failure of ACTVET iCampus to exercise or enforce any right or provision of these TOU shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. If any provision of these TOU is found by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, the parties nevertheless agree that the court should endeavor to give effect to the parties' intentions as reflected in the provision and the other provisions of these TOU shall remain in full force and effect.
