If work has commenced on a student paper, the full deposit is forfeit; for all other papers, the deposit will be refunded, less $45.00 and the per-word fee for the work completed prior to cancellation.

  4. Word count is determined by MS Word's "Word Count" feature.

  5. In calculating the final fee, the word count is either the beginning word count or the final word count, whichever is greater.

  6. Higher rates for tables and figures may apply if formatting is required, or if the table/figure word count exceeds 500 words.

  7. The deposit is based on the beginning word count.

  12. With regard to rush work, time is counted from when both document(s) and deposit have been received. If a rush is not required but work happens to be completed early, no surcharge will apply.
