Registration and Cancellation Policies

Getting onto the Roster

Payment: Classes require full payment upon registration unless you have made special arrangements.

Early Registration: Our classes are small and many fill quickly, so we recommend you register as soon as possible to get your class of choice. Six months in advance is not too early!

Waiting List. You may register to be on the waiting list for any class that is full. Student withdrawals do happen and you may be able to get into a class at the last minute. If EventBrite (Registration Host) says there are no tickets left, it will give you the option to be on the Waitlist and will automatically notify you if a space becomes available.

 

Cancellations

If we cancel a class due to inclement weather or instructor illness: It’s rare that we cancel due to weather; most classes can be conducted rain or shine (bring a raincoat or umbrella for wet weather; bring a sunhat and sunglasses for sunny weather!) However, if we must cancel or reschedule a class for any unforeseen reason we will notify students as soon as possible. If you are unable to attend a rescheduled class we will issue a full refund of your money.

Cancellations due to low enrollment: Occasionally we have to cancel a class due to low enrollment. We try our best to anticipate this situation and notify students of this possibility (so you can encourage your friends to sign up!) in advance. If we are forced to cancel a class we will notify students as soon as possible and issue a full refund.

Student Withdrawal

To cover registration and class preparation costs, Earth Village Education charges administrative fees when students withdraw from classes, regardless of the reasons for withdrawal. The fees are as follows:

One Day or Less Classes: If you withdraw from a class more than two weeks in advance we will refund your registration minus a $20 admin fee. If you withdraw from class within two weeks of that class there is no refund. However, the amount you have already paid may be credited towards another class, minus a $20 administrative/transfer fee.

Multi-Day Classes: If you withdraw from a class more than four weeks in advance we will refund your registration minus a $100 admin fee. If you withdraw from class within two weeks of the the class there is no refund. However, the amount you have already paid may be credited towards another class, minus a $100 administrative/transfer fee.

Flight Plans: If you plan to fly, please confirm that your class has sufficient enrollment to run prior to booking your ticket. Earth Village Education is not responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets under any circumstances.
