Payment Requirements

You must pay in full upon booking.


Refund Policy
Application fees are non-refundable.  Housing/phone deposits are fully refundable.  When we book you for Workshop or a clinical placement, it means we are holding that spot for you and are turning away other students who would like to have it.  If you cancel, it means we have to try to fill it on short notice and many students are unable to make arrangements so quickly.  Therefore, tuition for cancelled clinical placements and Workshops are refundable at the following rates:

4 or more months in advance are refundable at 100%

3 or more months in advance are refundable at 75%

2 or more months in advance are refundable at 50%

Less than 2 months in advance are non-refundable
