Course Cancellation Policy
Courses are cancelled when too many people wait until the last minute to register. We need a minimum number enrolled before a class will run. Programs may be cancelled during the session due to unforeseen circumstances and instructors may change during the program session.
Many of our programs are free and have extensive waitlists. For these reasons, we may withdraw a participant from a program when they have missed three consecutive classes. This allows for another person to have the opportunity to join the program.
All children under the age of eight are required to have parental/guardian (16 yrs or older) supervision, when not attending a registered Thunderbird program. The staff at Thunderbird are not responsible for children left unattended after programs have finished. Parents/guardians are responsible for picking up their children as soon as their programs have ended.
We often take pictures of participants enjoying our programs & use their pictures in publications such as this. Please let your instructor know if you do not wish to have your child’s picture taken.
We will be charging $35.00 for a returned cheque.
