Tuition Refund Policy

Refunds may be effected if:

1) A class is cancelled without option to either take the course online or in person at a later date.

2) If your inability to attend a class is based upon either: (i) a government imposed travel restrictions related to COVID-19, or (ii) an airline or train cancels your reservation flight to attend the class, all subject to providing documentation indicating the cancellation by the transportation organization. 

3) In the case where the minimum number of students is not met (online, 4 or in person, 8) and therefore the course is either cancelled or rescheduled, the enrolled student will have the option to receive one to one personal instruction from a Senior Trainer followed by 3 months of one to one supervision (mentoring, coaching and other assistance as needed).

For any other reason related to pandemic or acts of natural catastrophe, full credit toward another IRSI class or if available, may attend an IRSI class or on-line, upon submission of reasonable documentation. 

For all other reasons, full credit toward another IRSI class will be provided if taken within a twelve (12) month period from the date of the initial class, or 30 days notice of cancellation, upon submission of reasonable documentation.
