Refunds cannot be issued for classes missed as a result of illness, personal emergencies, or any other event beyond our control. Please choose carefully. If you cannot attend a course, you can receive a refund (less the $5 registration fee) by notifying us 2 days before the first class begins. Rainchecks to attend the SAME class in the future can be issued (called "do-overs"). Rainchecks are valid for one year. You must notify us before the first class session that you will be unable to attend.
