COURSE CANCELLATION & POLICIES
Sotheby's Institute of Art reserves the right to cancel courses when necessary due to unforeseeable circumstances or insufficient enrollment. All tuition and fees paid for such a course will be refunded.
To withdraw from a course you must notify the Summer Study Office, in writing, of your intention to withdraw. You may do so by e-mailing your withdrawal to publicprogramsNY@sothebysinstitute.com; or by completing a withdrawal form, in person, at the Institute. Failure to complete a course does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does notification to the instructor, nor does lack of attendance, nor does dissatisfaction with a course.
Cancellation of payment does not constitute withdrawal nor does it reduce indebtedness to the Institute: in this case, a penalty of $25 stop-payment (subject to change without notice) must be charged.
Refunds are computed based on the date and time the written or electronic withdrawal is received. The one-time registration fee is non-refundable.
The refund schedule is as follows:
- Up to six weeks prior to the start of the course:
Full refund of tuition
- Up to four weeks prior to the start of the course:
80% Refund of tuition
- Less than four weeks prior to the start of the
course : No tuition refunds
Submission of the registration form along with full tuition payment constitutes acknowledgement and acceptance of the terms and conditions of these programs.
