Payment Policies

 

We accept checks, money orders or you can pay online.  It is also possible to pay in cash for coaching sessions, except for your first session. 

 

For our one-day workshops and the first private coaching session, you must pay the full amount in advance. This is non-refundable.

 

For the 5-6 week in-person courses, you must pay a nonrefundable deposit of $40 to reserve your spot in the class.  Even if you have emailed us to tell us you are registering, you are not officially registered until we receive your deposit. The balance of the class is due 48 hours before the first day of class. Or you can pay for the entire class in full. Please read our withdrawal and cancellation policy FAQ below.

FOR MULTI-WEEK ONLINE CLASSES: Classes must be paid for in full to register. Payment is nonrefundable after 72 hours before the first class.  If you find you cannot take the class after registering, you must notify us at least 72 hours before the first class if you wish to be refunded. After that time, if you find out you cannot take the class, you still must notify us before the first class, and you will be able to apply your tuition to a future class. After the first class has started, there will be no refund or credit given. 

 

ONLINE PAYMENT:  Simply follow the directions under each class/workshop listing. (Please, when using the online payment, be sure to use an email you check regularly.  We will be sending you confirmation and information about the class and we need to have your correct email.) 

 

CHECK or MONEY ORDER:  You  can pay by check or money order. Email us to register for a class or schedule private coaching and we will email you an address where you can send your check or money order.  Email us at info @ bostonactingclasses.com.   

 

Please note:  If paying by check or money order, you are not officially registered until we receive your check or money order for the full cost of the class or the $40 non-refundable deposit.  If paying by check or money order for a coaching session, the session is not officially confirmed until we have received payment. 

 

CASH: We think it's safest not to mail cash, but you are welcome to use cash to pay for your coaching sessions in person.  (Please note, your first coaching session must be paid for in advance by check, money order or online.)

 

PRORATING

We do not prorate classes. If you want to take a 5 or 6 week class, but you know you will not be able to make a week, you still pay for the entire class.  

 

 

OUR CLASSES OFTEN SELL OUT

Because this is true, we have a number of policies about withdrawing from classes and workshops.  The reason for these policies? If someone can't take a class (we know, things come up), we want to be able to offer a space to someone else who is on the waiting list.

 

WITHDRAWAL & CANCELLATION POLICIES FAQ

 

If I pay in full for a multi-week course, but BEFORE the first class, I find I can't take the course, what then?

 

  • If you let us know at least 48 hours in advance of the first class, you can apply what you have paid to a future class OR we will return your payment minus the nonrefundable deposit.

 

  • If you let us know the day before or day of the first class, you will NOT be eligible for a refund, but can apply your payment to a future class.

 

If I pay for a course, but AFTER the first class, I find I can't continue, what then?

 

  • If you attend one class of a multi-week course and find that you are unable to continue the course due to a circumstance beyond your control, we will apply your tuition to a future class. No refunds are available in this circumstance.  However, this option is only available once.  If you apply your tuition to a future class, and then, during that second class, you find you cannot continue sometime after the first class again, you must pay tuition again to register for another class.  The reason for this policy is because we usually have full classes and waitlists and you will have now taken two slots in two different classes that could have been offered to another student. 

 

If I pay for a workshop, but find I can not attend, what then?

 

  • If you let us know in advance of the workshop, you can apply your payment to a future workshop.

 

  • If you are a no-show on the day of the workshop, you will NOT be able to apply your payment to a future workshop and you will not receive a refund. 

 

What if a class or workshop is cancelled?

 

  • The only time we cancel a class is for very extreme weather conditions. During the Winter Class cycles, we always build in one snow date into our weekly classes. This snow date is typically the week after the last scheduled class date and is made clear on the registration page and also when you recieve your confirmation. If a class is cancelled, it will be made up on that snow day. If you cannot make the snow date, we do not prorate the class. 

 

  • If a one-day workshop is cancelled for extreme weather, you will receive a full refund.
