Austin School of Furniture

Liability and Photography Waiver

Waiver Agreement, Refund Policy and Photography Release

Austin School of Furniture can cancel any class at anytime if there are not enough students enrolled in the class. If ASF chooses to cancel, we will fully refund a student’s class tuition.

If any student wishes to cancel their enrollment in a particular class at the Austin School of Furniture they must email a written notice to us. Please contact us via the contact page. Phone calls, text messages, social network comments, etc. will not be considered a valid cancellation notification.

All cancellations, regardless of the course value and time of cancellation will be charged a 5% processing fee. If a notice is dated and received prior to 4 weeks before the class start date, a full refund (minus processing fee) will be given. If a notice is given and received between 3 and 4 weeks notice then a 75% refund will be given. If a notice is given and received between 2 and 3 weeks notice then a 50% refund will be given.

There will be no refunds, regardless of reasoning, given for notices with less than 2 weeks notice.

> 4 weeks = 95%

> 3 weeks = 75%

> 2 weeks = 50%

< 2 weeks = 0%

Reasoning and justification of enforcement of this policy are detailed as below and are not subject to negotiation. Cancellations are defined as failure or inability or unwillingness to attend all or any part of a class in which the student is enrolled regardless of reason be it illness, accident, medical related, death, death of another, auto breakdown, act of God, epidemic and/or act of another. The terms of this policy are in effect through the final day of the course.

In the unlikely chance that the Austin School of Furniture will need to cancel a class itself we will first attempt to reschedule the course. If rescheduling is not possible, we will provide a full refund to students. If an enrolled student can not attend the rescheduled class, a full refund will also be given. ASF reserves the right to cancel any class and reschedule or not reschedule if the minimum student limit is not met.

If a student wishes to receive credit instead of a refund the amount will still follow the above refund breakdown.
