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.

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

No make-up classes are included in the cost of the course unless agreed upon enrollment. You
will though have the chance to buy 2 make up classes at a discounted rate. ($50 per lesson)

We may reschedule the start date of a course for a week if we haven’t reached the minimum
number of students. You will always be informed of the change.

Istituto Italiano Scuola reserves the right to reassign teachers after a course has started if
unforeseen circumstances occur.

Istituto Italiano Scuola reserves the right to cancel a student’s enrollment if their behavior is not
considered proper or safe for both attendees and the teacher.

If you sign up for a group course in which only two or three students remain for any given
reason, the class will change to 1 hour and half (3 students) or 1 hour (2) as the curriculum to
cover will be completed in less time.

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.
