No longer in effect - replaced Sept. 1st, 2015, click here for current terms and conditions.
A student may transfer classes, conditional upon availability of space. A written request is required.
If a class is full, you can request to be placed on the waiting list. You will be contacted as soon as a space in the original class is opened up due to a withdrawal, or when numbers of students require an additional class to be created.
Students are requested to pay the full tuition and membership (when applicable) at least the business day before the start of the course. No GST applies.
Payments may be made by cash, cheque, or using Interac, Visa or MasterCard. A $50 fee will be levied for any N.S.F. cheque.
AFM reserves the right to cancel any course, or reduce the hours of instruction, should there be fewer than the minimum number of students registered for the course.
In the event that a course is cancelled, AFM will offer students registered in the cancelled course the option of a) transferring to another course or b) a refund (student’s choice).
Tuition fees (for collective, private or corporate courses) are non-refundable unless a student provides AFM with written notice that he or she intends to withdraw from a course, at least the business day prior to the start of the course.
A $25 administrative fee will be retained.
Students are required to have a membership to take courses. The only condition under which a request that it be refunded will be considered is if the course it was bought for is cancelled.
A free placement test is available to all new students.
AFM reserves the right to request that a student repeat a course if it is deemed necessary.
Credit notes may be granted to a student who wishes to withdraw from a course.
Please note that absence from class does not constitute notice of withdrawal. A written request is required.
Credit notes are valid for a period not exceeding one year from the last attended class.
Credit notes will be processed based on the number of remaining hours in the course once notice of intent to withdraw is received by AFM. All classes up to and including the date of the credit note request will be deducted from the remaining instructional hours. Credit will not be granted for missed classes.
For an additional fee, make-up classes are available for students who miss classes, or for whom the teacher thinks it is necessary before starting the next level. These are paid on an hourly basis, at the private lesson rate.
Students will not be permitted to substitute missed classes with classes in other courses.
AFM is certified by Human Resources and Social Development Canada as providing training that furthers employability, as required by Revenue Canada for income-tax claims.
Therefore, tax receipts will be issued on request.
All cancellations require 24 hour notice.
Duration of courses is as specified on the schedule of the session.
