Almeda DOES HONOR their refund policy. Their website states “full refund (less $55.00 processing fee) if materials are returned within 7 days of receipt.” I contacted them five days after the package arrived asking for a refund, This was their response to me:
Dear Madison: Thank you for your note. We have a no questions asked return policy. Please return all the materials you received within the next 7 days. The return MUST be made using a traceable shipping method such as FedEx or UPS. Please send us the tracking number after your order is shipped back to us. Please write your STUDENT ID number on the OUTSIDE of the returned package. Upon receipt of these materials, Almeda will provide a refund of monies paid in accordance with our return policy. Please see http://www.almedacollege.org/life/fees.html for policy details. Please note that the number of days are from the date you received your package and not the date you placed your order.
Belford DOES NOT OFFER REFUNDS. Their website states (sic) “WE PROVIDE NO REFUND ONCE YOUR DEGREE PACKAGE IS SHIPPED AT THE SPECIFIED ADDRESS.” I received the package on 11/21 and immediately emailed them for a refund. The package was shipped from Dubai, UAE. Having heard nothing back from them, I emailed them again on 11/29. On 11/30, I received this reply: “Dear Madison Price, Please note that we do not offer refunds for check payments.”
Other Belford-owned Duplicates
As previously stated, I never got a degree from them because they ignored all my e-mails and there was no way of contacting them.
Refund status UNKNOWN. Their website states “100% refund (less $125.00 processing fee) – During the first 7 days.” As of this writing, I have not received my degree from them It has been 6 weeks already. I will update this if and when the degree arrives. I wrote them on 11/25 and again on 11/29 when I hadn’t heard from them. On 11/30, they wrote: “Madison we are trying to get the package to you, you supplied the wrong address…let me track it again and I will get back to you.” I have not heard back. I sent another e-mail today (Dec 18). Will keep posted.
Refund status UNKNOWN. Their website states “100% refund (less $125.00 processing fee) – During the first 7 days.” As of this writing, I have not received my degree from them. I wrote to them on 11/25. They wrote back on 11/18 with the UPS tracking info, so I called them on 11/30 to reschedule delivery.
Rochville DOES NOT OFFER REFUNDS. Their website says “We provide no refund once your degree package is shipped at the specified address” I received the package on 11/21 and immediately emailed them for a refund. The package was shipped from Dubai, UAE. They wrote me back on 11/24 saying they want a reason why I’m asking for a refund. I wrote them back on 11/25 saying I just found out that it will not be accepted by my employer because it is not regionally accredited. On 11/27, they wrote and granted a full refund.
Dear Madison, Your order has been cancelled as per your request and the order amount is being refunded to you. You can check this with your bank in the next 5 days.
When I wrote them back and reminded them I paid by money order, they wrote me this email: Dear Madison Price, We regret to inform you that as you have paid with the money order, we cannot provide you refund on this order.

I also had problems with them. I wrote on 11/25 and again on 11/29 and still hadn’t received the package or a reply. On 11/30, they wrote: We are sorry for the confusion. We were working with UPS to have your package delivered to the changed address. We are now going to reprint your documents and reship them ASAP. Again, we are sorry for the inconvenience. I received the package on 12/7 and wrote on 12/8 asking for a refund. I got this reply on 12/10: Sorry you are past the refund period. Joel I wrote them back, pointing out I just got the package. On 12/11, this is their final reply: The address mixup was your fault, and you are past the refund period. Joel
