Cancellation / Refund Policy
The tuition balance excluding $50 will be credited or returned to you if you cancel at least 6 business days before the first class meeting. If you cancel less than 6 business days prior to the first meeting, or if you drop out of a class in progress, you will lose your full tuition. Membership dues are not refundable.
If a class must be cancelled by the Center due to under-enrollment, students will be notified and the full tuition will be refunded, or the student may apply that tuition toward another course, workspace rental, products or memberships. If a class has already filled when a student's payment is received, the full amount will be refunded or may be applied toward another course.
Please Be Advised
The experience of learning bookmaking is important to us at the Center for Book Arts. Classes tend to be comprehensive and a lot of information is covered in each session, especially those sessions at the beginning of the course. For this reason, participants who miss a session may not be allowed to rejoin the class if the instructor deems that catching up the student would be detrimental to everyone else in the class. The Center will not be responsible for absent students who are not allowed to rejoin a class and no refund or credit will be made for the remaining class period.
The CBA is home to Lizzie the Cat.
