What if I need to withdraw from a class either before the class begins or once it begins?

What if I need to withdraw from a class either before the class begins or once it begins?

When you register for a class, you prevent other families from taking a seat. Registration means commitment.  Teachers plan out their classes long before the class runs.  Most of the work with teaching comes long before the student arrives in the classroom.  When a parent registers a student, the teacher is expecting that student to be in class.  To be fair to both our teachers and our families, we have come up with this withdrawal/refund plan.

OTA’s policy is clearly stated as follows:

For Fall 2018 (and 20 or 30 week) Classes

  1. If a student must withdraw from a course before August 1, 2018, AND the class is full with a “wait-list” for the class, AND your child’s seat can be filled by a student on the “wait-list”, any tuition paid will be refunded, less an administration (processing) fee of $100.00.
  2. If a student must withdraw from a course before August  1, 2018, AND if the seat cannot be filled, OR the withdrawal is made on or after August 1, 2018, the parent is responsible for the entire tuition amount due, and no refund will be issued.
  3. If a student must withdraw from a course once the class begins, there is no refund.

For Winter 2019 Classes

  1. If a student must withdraw from a course before December 1, 2018, AND the class is full with a “wait-list” for the class, AND your child’s seat can be filled by a student on the “wait-list”, any tuition paid will be refunded, less an administration (processing) fee of $100.00.
