REFUND POLICY: There are no refunds once the course has started. Your deposit is also non-refundable, unless Aquila Morong cancels the course. If you get acting work during the class session, your payment will be credited towards the next session. All credits are only good for 12 months after end of a course.

CANCELLATION POLICY: If you are unable to take the course you must notify Aquila Morong Studio at least one week prior to the start date of the course. If you fail to do so, you may not be eligible to take future classes at Aquila Morong Studio.  Your deposit is non-refundable but we will issue a credit for a future class.

PAYMENT POLICY: You agree to pay the course tuition(s) and applicable fees on time. A non-refundable deposit of half the course tuition is due immediately to hold your place in class. Failure to pay on time will result in removal from the course and you may not be eligible to take future classes at Aquila Morong Studio.  If you are unable to take the course, you will be issued a credit for your non-refundable deposit that may be used for a future class.

ATTENDANCE: You must be present at every class. Two are the maximum that are excused for acting work only, unless you have made special arrangements. Absences hinder your growth and in turn affect your ability to support your classmates. If you cannot attend all scheduled classes, we recommend you wait until a course you can fully commit to is available. Aquila Morong Studio understands that emergencies do happen so absences are allowed, but to maintain course integrity we do not allow more than two absences. There is no refund for missed classes and there are no make-up classes. If you get acting work during the class session, your payment will be credited to the next session.

TARDINESS: Prompt attendance is expected from all students. Arriving late requires the instructor to explain assignments and concepts again and is considered too disruptive to be allowed.

LEAVING EARLY: Please respect and support your fellow classmates by staying for the entire duration of class.

CONDUCT: Students are asked to help foster a creative and supportive learning environment without distractions. Students are asked to support their fellow classmates by abstaining from eating in class and talking while students or teachers are talking. Students must also abstain from using electronics in class including cameras, audio/video recording devices and cellular phones (this includes, but is not limited to, reading or writing email and text messages and using the internet).

PREPARATION: You are expected to come prepared and ready to work. If you are unprepared you will not get the full benefit of class and it will hinder your growth. Consistently being unprepared may result in removal from the course.

DISCLAIMER: Aquila Morong Studio reserves the right to accept or deny any individual’s application.
