2. Class size
Unless otherwise indicated, a course will have a maximum of 10 participants and a minimum of 4. Should a proposed course have insufficient enrollment, students will be offered the choice to switch to another course, receive a full refund or, when applicable, to take the course registered for, provided that each student agrees to pay a supplementary fee allowing ItalCultura to cover the costs of offering a course with limited participation. Courses with 2 students can be confirmed provided that each student agrees to pay a supplementary fee of $175 (or $210 if the student registered initially using the earlybird discount). Courses with 3 students can be confirmed provided that each student agrees to pay a supplementary fee of $50 (or $85 if the student registered initially using the earlybird discount.)
Students can make up a missed class by paying for a one hour private lesson.
The recording of the class in any digital format, both audio and video, is prohibited
3. Cancellation and Refund Policy
ItalCultura is a Not for Profit Organization committed to offering courses as affordable as possible. In view of our not-for-profit status and our commitment to our instructors, we apply the following rules:
Upon withdrawal from a class before the term has begun, the course fee will be fully refunded. Upon withdrawal within the first two lessons, the course fee will be refunded minus the pro-rated cost of the class/es attended as well as the $ 50 administration fee. No refunds beyond the second week of a term. No refunds or credit will be given for classes not attended. Make-up classes are available to the student during the same week only that the class is missed. Permission must be requested to the administrators. There will be no reimbursement for missed classes or missed private lessons.
Cancellation of Private Lessons:
If students are unable to attend their scheduled private lessons, notification must be given 24 hours in advance to avoid being charged. Teachers should be notified directly. Otherwise, please send an email to the school at .
4. Transfer Between Courses
All requests to be transferred from one course to another must be approved by ItalCultura. Any additional tuition or fees resulting from transferring are payable immediately. NO CHANGES are accepted after the second class.
Textbooks, workbooks and CDs are available for purchase in our office. Once purchased, they are non-refundable.
Students, members, and attendees of events and programs should be aware that ItalCultura and the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago may, from time to time, have photographs taken for use in marketing materials.
7. Liability of ItalCultura
The liability of ItalCultura and its staff is limited to intent and gross negligence. ItalCultura also accepts no liability for the cancellation of its services due to force majeure (e.g. natural disasters, fire, floods, war, official orders and all other circumstances beyond the control of the contractual parties).
