Question from ASMAA F.
Hi, I am not able to make all 10 sessions, as I will be out of town. Are there makeup courses for missed classes?
Answer from Jeanette H. Verified Educator
Hello! We are revising policies regarding missed classes. Currently the policy is as follows. A student missing a regularly scheduled class will not receive a credit or refund. Unless permission is granted by the Art School office, missed classes may not be substituted by another class section. Students attending a class for which they are not registered or given permission to attend will not be permitted to return to the Art School and will forfeit their registration and all payments.
