Refund and Class Policies

REFUND POLICY
Students are responsible for their course choices. Therefore, we recommend that you select your courses carefully. Staff are available for course advisement during registration and class placement sessions if you have questions about appropriate placement. In the event that you must withdraw from a course, the following policy will be in effect:

Refunds or withdrawal requests must be sent to withdrawals@icp.edu.
The date the email is sent will determine eligibility for a refund. All approved refunds take at least four weeks to process. ICP cannot be responsible for providing refunds for classes or programs missed as a result of student illness, student emergencies, or events beyond ICP's control.

Five-Week and Ten-Week Courses, and Graduates Courses:
Cancellation up to five business days prior to the first class, 100 percent refund, less a $55 withdrawal fee (per course); up to five business days prior to the second class, 50 percent refund, less a $55 withdrawal fee (per course). No refunds/credit are given after that time.

Weekend Workshops:
Cancellation up to five business days prior to the first class, 100 percent refund, less a $55 withdrawal fee (per workshop). No refunds/credits will be given after that time.

Ticketed events:
Tickets for all symposia and the Photographers Lecture Series are non-refundable.

Gift Certificates:
Gift certificates are non-refundable.

Check Redeposit Fee:
If for any reason a student's check or charge does not clear for payment, an additional fee of $15 will be charged. ICP does not guarantee placement until payment is resubmitted.

Transfer Fee:
A $25 fee will be charged for all transfers initiated by the student. Transfers from one class to another may only take place before classes begin.

Refund Policy for all ICP Travel Programs:
Refunds or withdrawal requests must be sent to withdrawals@icp.edu. The date the email was sent will determine eligibility for a refund. For a full refund (minus $500 non-refundable deposit), ICP must be notified no later than two months prior to the beginning of each trip. No refunds/credits will be issued after that time. All approved refunds take at least four weeks to process. ICP is not responsible for providing refunds due to illness, emergencies, or events beyond our control. ICP is not responsible for reimbursements of non-refundable airline tickets due to cancellation of workshop. Purchase of trip insurance is advised.
