  • There are no discounts on the class fee or prorating for late registrations or time off during a semester or a class session.
  • If a class is canceled by the Yocum Institute, the Institute will have sole discretion to reschedule the class or issue a monetary credit for the cancellation.
  • Refunds are issued if a course is canceled due to insufficient enrollment unless a credit or transfer is requested by the parent and/or student.
  • A $25.00 late fee will be applied to any account for past due balances not received within 5 days of the due date.

  • Notice to withdraw from a class must be presented in writing. Withdrawal Forms are available at the front desk. Accounts for ongoing billing will continued to be billed until a Withdrawal Form is received. Withdrawals are from the date a form is submitted, they are not retroactive. Families will be responsible for any payments due until the form is received by our office.
  • Multiple transfers and/or withdrawals and/or changes to schedules may result in an additional administrative fee.
