We reserve the right to cancel courses due to insufficient enrollment, with a full tuition refund. Please allow up to four weeks processing time for refunds of payments made by check or cash. These refunds will be issued in the form of a check from Ferris State University, and you will also be required to complete additional paperwork in order for your refund to be processed. Payments made by Visa, MasterCard, or Discover credit or debit cards will be refunded immediately to your card.
Inclement Weather or Building Closure
In the event that classes are cancelled due to weather or a building concern, an announcement will be made on local television. Tuition fees are based on six meeting times. In the event that unforeseen circumstances result in the cancellation of one of the classes, we will make every attempt to reschedule classes that have met fewer than six times.
Withdrawal from Class
There will be a full refund of tuition and fees for withdrawal requests submitted prior to the final registration deadline. There will be a partial (50%) refund of tuition and fees for withdrawal requests submitted after the final registration deadline and up to 24 hours before the class begins. A 50 % fee will be charged for class transfers after the final registration deadline. There will be no refund of tuition or fees for withdrawal requests submitted on or after the day of the first class. No class transfers will be permitted on or after the day of the first class. Please see the preceding paragraph for information on processing and receiving refunds.
Supplies for classes are not included in the cost of the course, unless indicated by a supply fee. Youth class participants who pay a supply fee for a drawing class will receive the supplies in packet form, which they will take home with them at the end of the class. Photography and computer classes include a lab fee, but additional supplies may be required as well. Class outlines and supply lists (if applicable) are attached to your automatic registration confirmation when registering online, or mailed to you when registering by any other means.
With enrollment, a student consents to being photographed or having his/her work photographed in classes or student activities on or off campus. These photographs may be used by the College in future promotional efforts, without specific written permission from the student.
All art work must be claimed within one month after the last day of classes. The College is not responsible for any work left behind after one month.
