Refund Policy

If you have completed at least one lesson but no more than 60% of the lessons in the course and wish to withdraw, you are entitled to receive a “pro-rata” refund for the unused portion of the tuition until the course termination date (see enrollment agreement for exact termination dates). Refunds will be paid according to the following formula:

A non-refundable registration fee of 20% of the cost of the course (not to exceed $200) is deducted from the total amount paid for the course. The remaining amount is then divided by the total number of lessons in the course. This amount constitutes the “per lesson” charge for the course. Finally, the number of incomplete lessons in the course is multiplied by the “per lesson” charge. The remaining amount is the refund that is owed to you.

If you have completed more than 60% of the lessons in the course and wish to withdraw, you would not be entitled to a refund.

The refund period ends on the initial course termination date, even if an extension is granted in order for you to complete any unfinished lessons.

Any refunds for cancellations will be paid within 30 days.
