All 6-week sessions are to be paid in full before the classes begin. Refunds will be issued in full or in part according to the following conditions. Otherwise, there will be no refund.

If YOU need to cancel your registration:

  • You have one week prior to the first lesson to cancel, so that your seat can be given to another student.
  • If you cancel one week prior to the first lesson, you will be given a full refund of any fees paid.
  • Cancelations after one week before the first lesson will not be refunded.
  • If you are sick and cannot attend a lesson, please notify your teacher by email. But there will not be a refund. If you are taking private lessons, simply reschedule the lesson with your teacher.

If WE cancel a lesson due to inclement weather or for any other reason:

  • Lessons will be cancelled only if the University of Toledo is closed for any reason or cancels classes during the time the lesson should have taken place. We will attempt to reschedule group classes if possible.
  • If we cancel a group class, a refund of $12.50 will be issued for that class. Private lessons will simply be rescheduled.
  • The University very rarely cancels classes. However, you can find specific instructions on local television, radio and print media in addition to posting notices on the internet on the UT homepage, at
  • If the teacher is unable to be at the lesson, we will provide a substitute teacher. If this cannot be done, a refund of $12.50 for the lesson will be issued for that class. Again, private lessons will be rescheduled.
