Refund Schedule/Policy

To guarantee parents and their children the summer program of their choice, we make decisions regarding our summer programs one month in advance. We hire instructors and teaching assistants and buy supplies based on the number of registered students. Therefore, we must adhere to the following refund policy and schedules to ensure that approved programs remain viable.

A full refund (including tuition deposit and registration fee) is automatically granted if a program is canceled (this includes cancellations due to COVID-19) or closed to further enrollment by the college. For registrations received after June 1, the refund amount (minus the nonrefundable $25 registration fee) is determined by the date a written withdrawal request is received from the parent or guardian, according to the following schedules:
