Refunds and Returns Policy

Online Courses

We aim to maintain satisfaction of our Customers, in case you are not happy with our premium courses, you can opt out. For memberships, you can cancel anytime, no question asked. Eligible courses purchased on Explore.rw can be refunded within 30 days, provided the request meets the guidelines in our refund policy. 

Our 30-day policy

While our 30-day refund policy is to allow students to learn risk free, we must also protect our instructors from fraud and provide them a reasonable payment schedule. Payments are sent to instructors after 30 days, so we will not process refund requests received after the refund window.

Additional reasons for denied refunds

We reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to limit or deny refund requests in cases where we believe there is refund abuse, including but not limited to the following:

  • A significant portion of the course has been consumed or downloaded by a student before the refund was requested.
  • Multiple refunds have been requested by a student for the same course.
  • Excessive refunds have been requested by a student.
  • Users who have their account reported, banned or course access disabled due to a violation of our Terms.

These refund restrictions will be enforced to the extent permitted by applicable law.
