21. REFUND POLICY
At PhotoUno our main objective is to make your experience at our school as pleasant as possible. Having this in mind, we understand that students who enroll in our courses may need to miss a class due to unplanned circumstances.
Although PhotoUno has no obligation to provide make-up classes for students who can’t attend a class of the course they have signed up for, we will do our best to find a solution by:
- Finding possible options of classes that will allow the student to follow the sequence of the course. This option is free.
- If we are unable to find a convenient date, we will offer the option of a private make up class that will be charged at a rate of $35 an hour due to administrative costs in order to organize this class.
Students have a maximum of two (2) make up classes for every 6-week course.
