Customers may make up to two transfers to a future program date for the same program. Participants can make their first transfer at no additional charge. Upon the second transfer, the customer will incur an administrative fee of $300. To make a transfer, participants must meet the requirements below:

  • The transfer request is received 14 days prior to the start date of the initially enrolled program 
  • The participant is enrolling for future dates within 12 months of the transfer request 
  • The future program date is still accepting registrations

Account balances resulting from administrative fees will be charged to the customer and payment must be received prior to the new program start date. Refunds due to the customer resulting from program cost differences will be processed within ten (10) business days.

All work submitted is to be your own, original work.


A minimum of 80% attendance/engagement is required to earn your certificate of completion for our open enrollment programs. Many activities happen during the program which requires your attendance for peer discussion in breakout rooms. Please notify your Program Service Manager in advance should you require any time away during the allotted program schedule. Failure to meet the 80% attendance/engagement rate will exclude you from receiving your certificate of completion.

For online programs 

Please keep your camera on and name posted during the program to help engage with the faculty and your fellow participants. If you need to turn off your camera or adjust your name, please let the Program Service Manager know.

Please note that all sessions may not be recorded. If you miss an online segment, there may not be an opportunity to review the content later. For this reason, we would advise that you plan to attend all live sessions for our online programs.

Class Photos

Most programs include an optional class photo. If you do not wish to participate, there will be an announcement made, and you are welcome to not participate by turning off your camera and removing your name to not be included for digital programs, or not attending the photo for in-person programs. These photos may be shared with the class via the Canvas platform or used on social media upon request/notification.
