Acadium's refund policy

We understand that incidents can happen and if you change your mind about matching with an apprentice, we offer a 100% refund before you are introduced to a candidate.

After receiving your apprentice request, our Matching Team immediately activates recruitment efforts to find you the best fit from our pool. The introduction between you and the candidate is considered a match. Note that this is not the start of the apprenticeship period. The actual 3-month apprenticeship only starts after both parties sign a labor contract.

It takes 1 to 5 business days to find and vet a candidate who will fully commit to the role. In some cases, it may take weeks to find a candidate if we need to source them. Once we find a candidate that’s well-matched with your goals and confirm their three-month availability, we will match them with you.

What if the candidate that I am matched with is not a good fit or the candidate does not respond?

We vet the best we can to ensure we only allow top-quality candidates on the platform for our valued members and it is important to find someone whose interests and goals are aligned with yours. If a match does not work out, you can request a rematch. Your membership gives you unlimited rematches until you find someone.

If you want a faster match, we suggest mentioning the following to our Support team:

  • Specific skill sets you are looking for in a candidate (E.g., Adobe Photoshop, Google Analytics, etc.)

  • Time zone preference (E.g., EST preferred, okay with working between PST and MT, etc.)

Your apprentice request must reflect these requirement/s as students will also see them when they are matched with you. We also recommend talking to your matches to find out if the candidate is flexible about learning extra skills, setting mutual times, or any concerns you may have before asking for a rematch.

You can cancel your subscription anytime, regardless of your payment scheme. Succeeding payments and credits are non-refundable as per our Terms of Service, 8.2 Payment and Term.

What if the apprenticeship is canceled?

Businesses that have a canceled apprenticeship, due to no fault of their own, can make a new apprenticeship request. Please contact our Membership Success Team so we can open up a slot on your Acadium account.
