Deposits & Refunds
A $10 or 10% (whichever is greater) non-refundable registration deposit applies for all course offerings. This fee counts towards the total tuition cost for a given course. Registration is not official until a deposit has been received. In the event that a course fills and has a waiting list, full payment will be due at the time a student is notified by Rockport Center for the Arts that a course has filled and full payment is due. Students who withdraw from a course at least five (5) working days prior to the start of a course are eligible to receive a full tuition refund minus the registration deposit fee unless otherwise noted. Students who withdraw from their course less than five (5) working days before the start of that course or once that course has started are not eligible for a refund. No refunds will be issued due to a student’s failure to attend a class.

Cancelled Courses
Students enrolled in courses which are canceled by Rockport Center for the Arts due to lack of enrollment or instructor illness will receive a full refund. Every effort will be made by Rockport Center for the Arts to notify students at least 24 hours before the first class in the event of a cancellation.

Transfers and Prorating Policy
Students wishing to transfer to another course during a current enrollment should consult with the Education Director. Cases will be handled on an individual basis.
