Arbitrator decisions are enforceable as any court order and are subject to VERY LIMITED COURT REVIEW.

THE ARBITRATION ADMINISTRATOR'S FEES MAY BE MORE THAN THE FEES CHARGED BY A COURT.

Your agreement to the Terms of Service constitutes your agreement to this Agreement, subject to your right to later reject this Agreement. PLEASE READ THIS ENTIRE AGREEMENT CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU AGREE TO THESE TERMS.

Us, We and/or Our means Next Gen Admissions LLC, any parent, subsidiary, affiliate, predecessor and/or successor entity, and each of their officers, directors, shareholders, employees, agents and/or representatives. Us, We and/or Our also includes any third party providing any goods or service in connection with or incidental to the "Contract," as defined below. This Agreement is part of, and is hereby incorporated into, the Contract. However, whenever in this Agreement "Contract" is used, it does not include this Agreement.

You and your means you and/or any of your heirs or personal representatives and any person and/or entity acting by, on behalf of or through you by assignment or otherwise.

Contract means any promise, agreement or understanding between you and us, including, but not limited to any good and/or services we may provide you, our Terms of Service and/or any matter related to our Terms of Service, including any Program and/or Services sought and/or provided, and our User Conduct Policy and/or Privacy Policy as defined therein.

Agreement means this Arbitration Agreement.

Including and includes mean including but not limited to.

This Agreement describes how a "Claim," as defined below, may be arbitrated instead of litigated in court.

Claim means any dispute, controversy, right of action or cause of action between you and us arising from or related to one or more of the following:

(a) any Contract between you and us.
(b) any good or service provided to you by us.
(c) any relationship or agreement between you and us.
(d) the termination of any relationship or agreement between you and us.
(e) User Accounts and our User Conduct Policy.
(f) billing, payments, payment disputes and/or any collection of amounts you owe us.
(g) any communication between you and us.
(h) our website and/or other promotional materials, advertising and/or solicitations.
(i) our Privacy Policy and/or any of your personal information.

Claim has the broadest reasonable meaning. It includes claims of every kind and nature: initial claims, counterclaims, cross-claims, third-party claims, statutory claims, contract claims, negligence and tort claims (including claims of fraud and other intentional torts). Notwithstanding any language in this Agreement to the contrary, Claim does not include a dispute about the validity, enforceability, coverage or scope of this Agreement, including the paragraph captioned "No Class Actions or Private Attorney General Actions," the final sentence under the paragraph captioned "Miscellaneous" and/or this sentence; any such dispute is for a court, not an arbitrator to decide.

However, notwithstanding any language in this Agreement to the contrary, Claim does not include any request for injunctive and/or declaratory relief so long as it does not include any request for damages, determination of any amount owed, including the right to set-off, attorneys' fees, court costs or monetary relief of any kind.

YOUR RIGHT TO REJECT THIS AGREEMENT. You have the right to reject his Agreement, in which event neither you nor we will have the right to require arbitration of any Claims. Rejection of this Agreement will not affect any other aspect of the Terms and Conditions. In order for you to reject this Agreement, we must receive a signed writing ("Rejection Notice") from you within 30 days of the day you agree to this Agreement stating that you reject the Agreement. The Rejection Notice must include your name, address, telephone number and must be emailed to us at info@nextgenadmit.com. If the Rejection Notice is sent on your behalf by a third-party, such third-party must include evidence of his or her authority to submit the Rejection Notice on your behalf. If you reject this Agreement, that will not constitute a rejection of any prior arbitration agreement between you and us.

Selection of Arbitration Administrator. Arbitration shall be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) according to this Agreement and the applicable AAA arbitration rules in effect when the claim is filed (AAA Rules), except where those rules conflict with this Agreement. You can obtain a copy of the AAA Rules at the AAA's website (www.adr.org) or by calling 800-778-7879. Any arbitration shall be conducted in the city of the same U.S. District Court closest to your residence. You or we may choose to have a hearing, appear at any hearing by phone or other electronic means, and/or be represented by counsel.

Arbitration may be requested any time, even where there is a pending lawsuit, unless a trial has begun or a final judgment entered. Neither you nor we waive the right to arbitrate by filing or serving a complaint, answer, counterclaim, motion, or discovery in a court lawsuit. Even if you and we elect to litigate a Claim in court, you or we may elect to arbitrate any other Claim, including a new Claim in that lawsuit or any other lawsuit.

The burden to commence an arbitration proceeding, once elected by either party, is on the party prosecuting the arbitrable Claim, not on the party electing arbitration (although they could be the same party). If a party elects to arbitrate his or her own claims, he or she will commence arbitration by submitting the required AAA forms and requisite filing fees to the AAA. If a party threatens to litigate a Claim in court and the other party notifies him or her in writing of its election to arbitrate the Claim, the party threatening the claim must commence arbitration by submitting the required AAA forms and requisite filing fees to the AAA. If a party files a lawsuit to prosecute a Claim and the other party files a motion to compel arbitration and the motion is granted, the party prosecuting the Claim must commence arbitration by submitting the required AAA forms and requisite filing fees to the AAA. A party's failure to commence arbitration once another party elects to have a Claim arbitrated constitutes an intentional relinquishment of the right to prosecute that Claim in any venue.

The arbitration shall be conducted by a single arbitrator in accord with this Agreement and the AAA Rules, which may limit discovery. The arbitrator shall not apply any federal or state rules of civil procedure for discovery, but the arbitrator shall honor claims of privilege recognized at law and shall take reasonable steps to protect confidential information of either party if requested to do so. The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA and applicable statute of limitations, and may award damages or other relief under applicable law. The arbitrator shall make any award in writing and, if requested by you or us, may provide a brief statement of the reasons for the award. An arbitration award shall decide the rights and obligations only of the parties named in the arbitration, and shall not have any bearing on any other person or dispute.

If, for any reason, the AAA is unable, unwilling or ceases to administer an arbitration elected by you or us, we must agree in writing on an acceptable replacement administrator and, if no agreement can be reached, either party can request a court appoint one. Under no circumstances may an arbitration be administered by an administrator which has a formal or informal policy inconsistent with the paragraph below captioned "No Class Actions or Private Attorney General Actions."

NO CLASS ACTIONS OR PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL ACTION. Notwithstanding any language herein to the contrary, if you or we elect to arbitrate a Claim, neither you nor we will have the right to (1) participate in a class action in court or in arbitration, either as a class representative, class member or class opponent, (2) act as a private attorney general in court or in arbitration, or (3) join or consolidate your Claim(s) with claims of any other person, and the arbitrator shall have no authority to conduct any such class, private attorney general or multiple-party proceeding. This paragraph does not apply to any lawsuit filed against us in court by a state or federal government agency even when such agency is seeking relief on behalf of a class of borrowers, including you. This means that we will not have the right to compel arbitration of any claim brought by such an agency.

Notice and Cure; Special Payment. Prior to initiating a Claim, the party initiating the Claim shall give the other party written notice describing the factual and legal basis of the Claim, the amount that party will accept in resolution of the Claim, and a reasonable opportunity not less than 30 days, to resolve the Claim by paying the amount demanded (Claim Notice). Any party who fails to provide the Claim Notice shall not be entitled to recover arbitration fees, attorneys' fees and/or costs, even if such fees and costs are otherwise recoverable by statute and/or contract. If (1) you submit a Claim Notice to us in accordance with this paragraph on your own behalf (and not on behalf of any other party), (2) you cooperate with us by promptly providing any information and/or documents we reasonably request to investigate the Claim, (3) we refuse to provide you with the relief you request, and (4) the arbitrator subsequently determines that you were entitled to such relief (or greater relief), you will be entitled to a minimum award of at least $2,500 (not including any arbitration fees and/or attorneys' fees and costs which may be recoverable).

Fees and expenses. Arbitration fees will be allocated according to the applicable AAA Rules. Each party will bear the administrator and arbitrator fees they are normally required to pay. The administrator and/or arbitrator may waive or reduce its fees for financial hardship. You will be responsible for requesting the waiver or reduction, and demonstrating your hardship to the satisfaction of the administrator and/or arbitrator pursuant to the AAA Rules or however they may otherwise instruct. If you ask in writing, we will pay administrator and/or arbitrator fees up to $1,500 that the administrator and/or arbitrator will not waive for any Claims asserted in good faith.

Each party is responsible for their owner attorneys' fees, expert fees and any other expenses, unless the arbitrator awards such fees and/or expenses based on applicable law and pursuant to this Agreement.

Applicable Law, Award of Arbitrator and Right to Appeal. This Agreement is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (FAA). The arbitrator shall apply applicable substantive law consistent with the FAA. The arbitrator shall apply applicable statutes of limitations. The arbitrator is authorized and given the power to award all remedies that would apply if the action were brought in court. This authorization and power is limited by any constitutional limits that would apply in court. The arbitrator shall not apply federal or state rules of civil procedure or evidence unless the parties each agree in writing.

The arbitrator's award is confidential unless a party seeks judicial review of it pursuant to the FAA. Either party may make a timely request to the arbitrator for a brief explanation of the basis for the award. The award is final unless a party appeals it in writing to the AAA within 30 days of notice of the award. The arbitration appeal shall be determined by a panel of three arbitrators chosen in accordance with AAA Rules. The panel will consider all facts and legal issues anew based on the same evidence presented in the prior arbitration, and will make decisions based on a majority vote. Arbitration fees for the arbitration appeal shall be allocated according to the applicable AAA Rules. An award by a panel on appeal is final.

A final award is subject to judicial review as provided by the FAA. Judgment on the arbitrator's award may be entered in any court with jurisdiction.

The fees and costs of any appeal and/or request for judicial review will be borne by the party incurring the same, unless the arbitrator or court awards the prevailing party all or a portion of its fees and costs.

Miscellaneous. This Agreement shall survive changes to this Agreement, changes to or termination of any Contract, changes to or termination of any relationship between you and us, bankruptcy of any party, and/or assignment of any Claim to any other person or entity. If any part of this Agreement is deemed invalid or unenforceable, the other terms shall remain in force, except that there can be no arbitration of a class or representative Claim. If a court limits or voids any part of the paragraph captioned "No Class Actions or Private Attorney General Actions" in any proceeding, the entire Agreement (except for this sentence) shall be null and void with respect to such proceeding, subject to the right to appeal such limitation or voiding.

This Agreement (if you do not reject it) supersedes any prior arbitration agreement between you and us with respect to any Claim. This Agreement may not be amended, severed or waived, except as provided in this Agreement or in a written agreement signed by both you and us.
