Admission to classes is based upon an interview. There is a $30 fee for bounced checks. Those who pay for programs or classes online but are not accepted to The Acting Corps or a specific class or program will receive a full refund minus a $30 processing fee. Once a program has begun there are no refunds.
All classes require advance enrollment in order to guarantee a space in the program(s) marked on receipt or stated in a confirmation email. A deposit is required at the time of enrollment and the remaining balance is due on the first day of your program, unless a payment plan has been prearranged with The Acting Corps. Students cancelling at least 1 month in advance of the original class date will be refunded the amount paid minus a processing fee of $150 or students may use the entire amount paid as a credit towards another class/program scheduled to start within the next year. Students canceling less than 1 month in advance of the original class start date are eligible to use the total amount paid minus a cancellation penalty of $250 as a credit toward another class/program scheduled to start within the next year. For all part-time classes, the late cancellation penalty is 25% of the total cost of the program. Absolutely no withdrawals will be granted after the first day of class.
Regarding the Professional Program: No assurances regarding the issuance of visas can be given in advance. Therefore final travel plans or the purchase of non-refundable tickets should not be made until a visa has been issued. Should the Embassy deny your application for a visa, you will be refunded your deposit minus a $250 administration fee. Your program should be paid in full at least one week before you are scheduled to begin classes.
For classes requiring a deposit, i.e., The Advanced Program, the deposit will be held and applied towards your last month of attendance. We require a 30 day notice that you intend to leave class and we will then apply the deposit towards that last month. The deposit cannot be used until you have fulfilled your six-months commitment to the program. Once you have used your deposit, you understand that your spot may be given to another student on the waiting list.
