How Early Should I Register? Early! Our classes are small and many fill quickly, so we recommend you register as soon as possible to get your class of choice- six months in advance is not too early! You can call us and register to be on the wait list for any class that is full. Cancellations do happen, and you may be able to get into a class at the last minute, so don't hesitate to call to check on availability.
Registration & Payments Registrations are non-transferable. Full payment is due at the time of registration, either by credit card, check or cash. Classes without a minimum number of registrations may be cancelled. (See "course cancellations" for details.)
Student Withdrawal/ Cancellations Because of registration costs and other services, including faculty contracts and material acquisitions, Mi Folk School is required to charge cancellation fees to students who change their itineraries.
Please note: Once students are accepted into a class, cancellation fees apply, regardless of the reason for canceling. Cancellation of enrollment more than 30 days prior to the first day of class results in a cancellation fee of 5% of the course fee. Cancellation of enrollment within 30 days of the first day of class results in a cancellation fee of 50% of the course fee.
No tuition or material fees will be reimbursed for non-attendance after the start date of a class. Registrations are not transferable. Students who cancel their enrollment in a class to transfer to another class are charged the cancellation fee, plus the course fee for the class to which they wish to transfer.
Tuition Tuition rates are listed with each class description on this site. Tuition rates can also be found at the bottom of each page of our printed course information material.
Lodging & Meals Tuition does not include costs for lodging and meals or class materials fees, unless expressed in the course description and tuition information.
Materials Fees & Supplies Students in craft courses typically use materials in the making of their projects, and in non-craft classes there are sometimes additional fees for copies and such. Materials fees can range from $0 to over $300. Because the amount of materials used will vary by student, materials fees are not included in the tuition amount. Classes with estimated materials fees in excess of $100 are noted in its class description. Upon registering for a class, you will receive an estimate of materials fees on your confirmation email along with a list of additional supplies the instructor may require you to bring from home. Payment for materials purchased from the instructor or the school is required on the first day of class.
Course Cancellations Mi Folk School will conduct courses for which a minimum number of students are registered. If the Mi Folk School must cancel a course, registered participants will be given the opportunity to enroll in another course, with no transfer penalty. A full refund will be given to participants who do not wish to transfer. Mi Folk School is not responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets in any circumstance.
