Tuition for Summer Workshops 2020
All workshops at the school will be two weeks in length during the 2019 summer season. The tuition for each two week session is $1500.00.
There will be a modest materials fee for each workshop, calculated at the end of the session based on actual cost of materials used. Expect the materials fee to be around fifty dollars, not to exceed one hundred dollars. This fee covers individual use of fuel, metal, abrasives, and other materials. Classes with materials fees expected to be different than this will be noted in the class descriptions.
Tuition is paid in full at the time of registration.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
If a student must cancel their commitment to take a class prior to the six week cutoff date, full tuition will be refunded minus a $100.00 cancellation fee. Should a cancellation be sought less than six weeks prior to the scheduled class, the school will not be obligated to refund the tuition. The only exceptions will be in the event another student on the waiting list can fill the class on short notice, or that an illness or death in the family of the registrant is the cause of the cancellation. In these cases, the $100.00 cancellation fee will still apply.
The School aims for six students in each workshop. Should the class not fill to that capacity, the School may, at its discretion, choose to cancel the class. Any decisions for cancellation will be made six weeks prior to the scheduled class, and of course would result in a full refund. Every effort will be made to run every class, however an enrollment of fewer than four students is not viable.
