Class Policies

Registration & Confirmation

Your enrollment is finalized upon registration and payment, which are only processed if there is room in the course. Columbia Center for the Arts (CCA) keeps class sizes small to facilitate personal interaction between the students and instructors. Instructors determine their own maximum enrollment based on the type of class and their own preference.


Payment

We require full payment to reserve your spot in class. You may purchase your tickets online, in person at the Gallery, or over the phone. Payment may be rendered via credit card, check, or cash. Returned checks will incur a $50 charge.


Course Cancellations

We reserve the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. In the case of cancellation due to low enrollment, we will notify students by e-mail and/or by phone by Friday, at the latest, before the Monday a class is to begin. Full tuition for cancelled courses will be refunded via check.


Refund Policy

Class tuition is non-refundable; no refunds will be issued after registration and payment. If a student is unable to participate in the course, his or her registration may be transferred, in certain cases and at the discretion of the CCA, to another individual.


Parental Responsibilities

CCA is not responsible for supervision of children outside of scheduled class hours. Parents may drop off students no earlier than 15 minutes prior to the start of class, and are responsible for picking them up promptly at the scheduled end of class. Parents are responsible for notifying CCA if a child will be absent, will arrive late, or will be picked up early, as well as of any other special circumstances.
