QUITTING CLASSES & REFUNDS
Classes are considered dropped/quit when the student does not attend classes and the time for which the student is absent is not financially covered.
Within the first two weeks, students may quit classes, but the registration fee and fee for classes used will not be refunded, and a $50 cancellation fee will apply.
After the first two weeks has elapsed, no refund will be redeemable.
A partial refund will be issued if classes have been missed or will be missed for medical reasons, and the official notification of the doctor was provided.
