Terms and Conditions

Tuition and registration fees must be paid in full before the term begins.

Registration fees are not refundable for any reason.

Tuition fees are refunded in full if students cancel at least 1 week before the term begins or if a
class is canceled for any reason.

Students who drop out before the fourth class of term will receive a 25% carry-over credit for the
following term. After six months your credit will expire.

Students who drop out 4 or more classes will not receive any refund or carry-over credit.

The IIS Board of Directors reserves the right to increase fees annually. Even though we are a no-
profit institution, it might be necessary to raise class fees to cover increases in overhead, rent,
and teacher salaries. Any such increase levied is guaranteed for one year.
