School Policies & Procedures
Please read thoroughly.
We are a nonprofit 501(c) (3)charitable organization. Tuition fees cover only 60% of the costs of operating the school. The balance is raised through donations, fundraisers and member support. We must abide by these policies in order to be here to serve you and future generations. Classes are now only available to current members of the Lighthouse ArtCenter.
REGISTRATION AND RE FUND POLICY:
Included in each course registration is a nonrefundable $25 registration fee. To withdraw, students must submit a written withdrawal
request at least five working days prior to the start of the course. Students who meet this requirement will receive a full tuition
refund minus the registration fee. Students who withdraw less than five working days before the start of that course will not
receive a refund. There are no exceptions.
If space is available, and if approved by the instructor, classes in Spring, Late Spring, Early Fall, Fall and Summer will be prorated. Classes enrolled must be consecutive. Full-session students will have priority when registering for classes. A $25 prorating processing fee will be applied to each class that is prorated. There is NO prorating in Winter sessions.
The Lighthouse ArtCenter staff always does their best to accommodate all students. The School of Art is NOT responsible for providing students with make-up classes when a student has missed a class for any reason not the fault of the faculty or the School of Art. There are no refunds or make-ups for missed classes. Upon request, we will issue a tax-deductible contribution receipt for missed classes.
COURSE CHANGES /CANCELLED COURSES:
The School of Art reserves the right to substitute instructors for any of its classes at any point in any term and to change its
calendar, withdraw or modify a course at any time. Classes or workshops cancelled due to inclement weather or instructor absence will be rescheduled according to studio availability. Students enrolled in courses which are cancelled by the School of Art will receive a full refund. In the event that a course or workshop is canceled, every effort will be made to notify students as quickly as possible. Off-site classes (i.e. Plein Air) will receive emails the evening before class announcing the location.
SAFETY & LIABILITY:
While the student can be assured that every reasonable safety precaution will be followed, the ArtCenter will not assume liability for injuries that occur within the scope of the subject area for which the student is enrolled. By completing registration online or in person for any course, the student agrees to assume all reasonable liability from injuries related to the scope of the work being taught and releases the Lighthouse ArtCenter from any liability claims related to any injuries and/or accidents that may occur.
