Cancellations and Session Changes

Cancellations and session changes are permitted up to 72 hours prior to the start of the session.  We reserve the right to cancel or merge any of our classes based on enrollment.  All students that may be affected by these changes will be notified, and those students will have the right to cancel their registration for a full refund, or receive a credit for the next class session.

Make-up Policy

iCCGS is not responsible for changes in students’ personal schedules. For adult classes, all students should attend one class per week to ensure that they keep up with the sequential material covered in class.  If a class MUST be missed, no additional makeup classes, refunds, or credits for class will be given for missed classes.  Private lessons are available at $30 per hour.

If you are unable to attend a workshop after the 72 hour time frame, we are unable to refund you tuition cost.  As another option, you may transfer your paid session to someone else--please have that person tell the instructor at the scheduled workshop so that they can write down the correct contact information.  

End of Session Policies

Non-returning students must clear off their shelves by the last class session. Any work or personal items found on shelves of students who have not re-registered for class will become property of the studio to be recycled or thrown away as we re-assign shelves to new incoming students.
