Tuition Fees Due Prior to Start of Course
All tuition fees must be paid prior to the commencement of classes, 24 January 2024.
Cancellation of the course
The Fab Lab reserves the right to cancel Fab Academy if the quota of registered students is not complete. In the case that a Lab cancels Fab Academy, 100% of paid tuition fees will be refunded.
Student’s withdrawal from the Course
A student choosing to withdraw from a course is to provide notice in writing to Central Coordination and the Local Lab, via email. Students who drop the course and had paid part of the tuition fees, will have partial refund according to the following situations:
Non-refundable Central Cost Tuition Deposit
A student must pay $2000 USD to Central to confirm course participation, maximum 2 weeks after they receive their acceptance letter. This is the Tuition Deposit and is non-refundable if a student withdraws from the course.
Withdrawal from Course prior to the official beginning of class period
If the student paid part or the totality of the Course’s tuition fees prior to the class period, and communicates the withdrawal.
Central Coordination will reimburse the 85% of the fees paid that exceeds the Tuition Deposit, and reserves the 15% in concept of administrative costs.
100% of local costs will be reimbursed.
Important: to be subject to a refund, the student must give proper justification and proof of the reason for withdrawal.
Withdrawal for the Course after official beginning of class period
There is no refund of any kind after the official beginning of classes. There are however extension and continuing student options.
Ceasing attendance without notification
If a student fails to deliver the assignments requested by the instructors, misses the evaluation periods, does not cover 90% of classes and/or fails to attend more than 15 consecutive classes, Central Coordination and the Local Lab understands that the student abandoned the course. In this situation, the student loses all the accomplished credits and any right to claim for refund. In addition, Central Coordination will not deliver the student’s diploma nor any kind of certificate requested, until the student regularises their status and becomes a Continuing Student.
