Withdrawal with refund must be requested in writing more than two weeks prior to the program start date. Any withdrawals or changes will be subject to a $10 administrative fee. There are NO REFUNDS given for withdrawals requested less than two weeks prior to the first day of a registered program or at any time during the program.
