GENERAL CONDITIONS

1. The Enrollment Fee of ACCADEMIA RIACI is to be paid upon registration of ACCADEMIA RIACI and the Tuition Fee is to be paid before the start of the relevant course. For courses other than Academic Courses*, a Deposit Fee of 20% of the Tuition Fee and the Enrollment Fee is to be paid upon registration, and the rest is to be paid before the start of the relevant course. Payments can be made only in cash, by bank wire transfer or international postal order to the account indicated by ACCADEMIA RIACI. ACCADEMIA RIACI will provide the student with a certificate of payment confirmation. In case of a wire transfer, the certificate will be issued only when the completion of the transfer has been confirmed by the school at its receiving bank account. ACCADEMIA RIACI may, at its sole discretion, exclude from any course and/or examinations any registered student who fails to pay the applicable Tuition Fee within the period stated above or any other period as may be agreed with ACCADEMIA RIACI. ACCADEMIA RIACI reserves the right to claim back from any such student any reasonable expenses incurred in reliance upon his/her registration on the course.

2. The Enrollment Fee and the Deposit Fee paid to ACCADEMIA RIACI are not refundable unless ACCADEMIA RIACI decides not to grant the student a place on the relevant course. If cancellation occurs not less than 90 days prior to the start of the relevant course, ACCADEMIA RIACI shall refund 100% of the Tuition Fee (except for the Enrollment Fee and the Deposit), 50% of the Tuition Fee (except for the Enrollment Fee and the Deposit) will be refunded if cancellation occurs not less than 60 days prior to the start of the relevant course; 30% of the Tuition Fee (except for the Enrollment Fee and the Deposit) will be refunded if cancellation occurs one day before the class starts and no refund shall be made if cancellation occurs after the start of the relevant course.
