Cancellations and Refunds
Certain classes that do not enroll a required minimum number of students 5 days prior to class convening may be cancelled. Students who have paid for a cancelled class will receive a refund or may apply credit to another currently enrolling class or private lesson. ACMS will allow a one-time cancellation of a class registration or class switch without penalty. A $15 fee will be imposed for multiple registration changes.

If a family needs to drop a class, ACMS will refund the classes missed if the class is dropped within the first 3 weeks of class during long sessions (5 weeks or longer). Refunds are not available after the first week of class for short sessions (3 to 6 weeks). Once materials (songbook and CD) have been picked up, the cost of those items is nonrefundable.
