classes. Special arrangements may be made due to extreme
illness or injury. No tuition deduction or allowance will be made due to the
absence, withdrawal, or dismissal of the student. Tuition is not transferable
and is non-refundable unless withdrawal is due to prolonged illness or injury
verified by a doctor's note. Please communicate with the front office.

family members. First time students may withdraw up to the fourth
lesson in the semester for a full refund (excluding classes taken
and registration fee).
