Two weeks withdrawal notice is required for a refund. However, a $20 transaction fee will be deducted from the refund for each and every class seat registration that is canceled by the registrant/student. When a class is dropped 3-13 days prior to the start date, only school class credit will be issued, and the transaction fee will be deducted (see above). Rescheduling a class still entails a cancellation and, therefore, a transaction fee will still be charged to customers. There are no refunds or school credit issued when fewer than 48 hours notice from the class start date is given.
