The Folk School’s Class Policies

 

PAYMENT POLICY: Registration in a class is not complete until payment is received by The Folk School, either online through PayPal or by check. If you fill out an online registration form but do not complete your payment promptly, we will not hold your place in the class. If the class fills, we will cancel the registrations of anyone who has not paid to allow others to register.

Students cancelling their enrollment 14 days or less prior to the first day of the course are not eligible for a refund. If the Folk School Fairbanks cancels a course, students will receive a full refund.

40 BELOW CANCELLATION POLICY: For the safety of instructors and participants, if four hours prior the start of a class or activity the temperature at the Fairbanks Airport reads 40 below or colder (visit: http://www.weatherhq.com/weather-station/fairbanks%2C-fairbanks-international-airport), classes will be canceled.  We will do our best to re-schedule classes in this case.  If this is not an option, registrants will receive a full refund and instructors will not be paid.
