Will I receive a refund if I cancel my registration?
Your satisfaction is important to us.  A full refund is automatic when classes are already filled or minimum enrollment is not met.  Refunds may also be given in the event of unavoidable scheduling conflicts, personal emergencies, or dissatisfaction.  All refund requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis and may be pro-rated.  A full refund will also automatically be given for bus trips if the trip is canceled or already filled.  No refunds for special events or tickets (amusement parks, movie theater, sports events or bus trips) will be given for any other reason.  Refund requests may be subject to a 10% administrative fee.  Please allow 21 days for processing.
