However, the procedure for refunding funds does not apply to such persons:

  • students and cadets of universities with specific training conditions (for example, those ZVOs that train police officers) and military training units of universities;
  • students who wrote an application for expulsion before the start of the school year and did not start their studies.

A document confirming payment (for example, a receipt) must be submitted no later than 10 business days. If the person does not submit the specified document within the specified time period, he will be immediately expelled.
