Refund Policy
If you need to reschedule or cancel a class, it's usually no problem. We will move you to a different session, or give you a full refund as long as you give us at least 7 days' notice. If, however, you notify us less than one week before the class (a "late-cancellation"), we do not offer a refund and you only qualify for a late-reschedule. We charge $25 for any reschedule, $50 for reschedules with fewer than 72 hours' notice, and $100 for reschedules with fewer than 24 hours' notice (or no-shows)
Students may withdraw from any course (except when they have late-rescheduled) after instruction has started within 2 hours and receive a full refund, provided the reason for their withdrawal is dissatisfaction with the course. In the case of multi-day and multi-evening courses, students may withdraw after any session before the course's half-way point and receive pro-rated refund for the unused portion of the tuition.
