– 90 days prior to the beginning of the courses: 100%
– 60 days prior to the beginning of the courses: 50%
– 1 day prior to the beginning of the courses: 30%
– after the course has started: NO refund

Note: refunds for any change or cancellation of the courses will NOT be available, once a student has been legally admitted into Italy as a student at Accademia Riaci. The same conditions apply to students who have been issued with a Certificate of Enrollment.

GENERAL CONDITIONS

1. By registering for classes students agree to pay all applicable tuition and registration fees. Students are required to pay all tuition and fees before the course start date. Payments can be made exclusively by wire transfer to the bank account indicated by the Office of Admissions. ACCADEMIA RIACI will provide the student with a certificate of payment confirmation. The certificate of enrollment will be issued only after receiving the confirmation of the wire transfer by the Office of Admissions. 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 NON-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.

3. The Tuition fee includes a Certificate of Attendance or a Diploma issued right after completion of the course.

6. Class attendance is MANDATORY. No student will be allowed to the final examinations unless he/she attends at least 80% of the lessons.

In case students do not attend lessons, there will be no refund of the Tuition Fee.

Failure to adhere fully to these rules may result in disciplinary measures being taken against the offending student (which, for the avoidance of doubt, may involve the expulsion of the student from the relevant course). To the fullest extent permitted by Italian law, ACCADEMIA RIACI reserves the right to claim damages in relation to any loss caused by the student.

8. Courses are organized according to the schedules, dates, and programs established by the teachers appointed by ACCADEMIA RIACI, which reserves the right, at any time, to amend any aspect of the course as may be necessary.
