To withdraw from a class, students must notify Falls Church Arts (FCA) in writing ­(e-mail or letter) at least 7 days prior to the start date of class. Students cancelling at least 7 days before the class start date may choose to receive either a partial refund (a nonrefundable $20 registration fee is included in the tuition) OR a credit voucher in the full amount.

No refunds or credit vouchers will be issued without 7 days’ notice.

Refund and cancellation policies are strictly enforced. Refunds may take 1 to 2 weeks to process.

FCA does not offer make-up classes or tuition reimbursement for student absenteeism. FCA does not prorate tuition for classes that the student cannot attend. FCA reserves the right to postpone classes due to circumstances beyond FCA control, such as severe weather, staff illness, or other emergencies. Instructors will provide make-up classes for classes cancelled in these cases.

FCA reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment. Full refunds are issued for cancelled classes only. We make every effort to notify students of postponements and cancellations at least 24 hours before the first scheduled class. Dates and times are subject to change as necessary.

Admission will not be denied anyone on the basis of race, sex, or ethnicity. FCA reserves the option to refuse participation in a class to anyone who is deemed disruptive to the learning process of the group as a whole.

FCA is not liable for personal injury or loss of property.

FCA requires that students participating in an in-person class adhere to current public health mandates and to any additional restrictions (such as vaccination status and masking) that FCA may deem necessary. Failure to adhere to these mandates and restrictions will be grounds for discontinuing a student’s participation, without refund.
