We accept check, credit card, or money order, but no cash payments. We may grant an appeal to administration and accept cash due to specific circumstances.

Our Refund Policy

Absolutely no refunds or credits for any reason the day class begins or after the first meeting of class. If a student requests a cancellation of class no later than the day before class begins, a refund minus a $25.00 processing fee will be given.
