  • No tuition refunds will be given after the first class is completed.

  • There are no discounts on the class fee or prorating for late registrations or time off during a semester or a class session.

  • If a class is canceled by the Yocum Institute, the Institute will have sole discretion to reschedule the class or issue a monetary credit for the cancellation.

  • Refunds are issued if a course is canceled due to insufficient enrollment unless a credit or transfer is requested by the parent and/or student.

  • A $25.00 late fee will be applied to any account for past due balances not received within 5 days of the due date.

  • Families who choose to opt out of recurring billing for ongoing classes will have a $5 monthly administrative fee added to accounts.

  • Notice to withdraw from a class must be presented in writing. Withdrawal Forms are available at the front desk. Accounts for ongoing billing will continued to be billed until a Withdrawal Form is received. Withdrawals are from the date a form is submitted; they are not retroactive. Families will be responsible for any payments due until the form is received by our office.

  • Multiple transfers and/or withdrawals and/or changes to schedules may result in an additional administrative fee.

  • The Institute reserves the right to suspend or discontinue any student at any time due to lack of interest, extreme absence, behavior problems, tardiness, delinquency in tuition payments, or parental noncompliance with Institute policies.
