Reschedule, No Show, and Cancellation and Refund Policies 

It is the students’ responsibility to notify GMEC by email or phone that they cannot make the class.

The Reschedule Policy allows students to reschedule their course one time at no cost or be placed on a To Be Determined roster with a one year limit from the time of original course registration. Rescheduling must be completed at least 72 hours prior to the start of the class. Subsequent rescheduling will incur a $20 processing fee. No refunds are available after rescheduling and the amount paid remains as a credit.

The No Show Policy refers to students who have paid for a course and do not call ahead to reschedule, cancel, or request a refund prior to the class. A student who does not contact GMEC to cancel their course or does not show up for the course will forfeit all fees paid. No Shows do not qualify for a refund or a reschedule.

A $20 fee will be charged for the class that was canceled.  Refund requests will be honored when made prior to 72 hours of the course start time.

GMEC strives to ensure every option is explored before rescheduling or cancelling a scheduled class. We do not make the decision to cancel classes lightly and do our best to take every precaution we have available to us to prevent taking such an action. However, should backup instructors be unavailable to teach a scheduled class, advanced notice will always be attempted. Should advanced notice be impossible, in the unlikely case of a cancellation or rescheduling, GMEC will honor each student's credit and will reschedule the class within a reasonable time. GMEC is not responsible for any loss of revenue, wages, hotel or travel expenses, or damages resulting from a canceled or rescheduled class.

Notification process if class is cancelled: Participant will be notified by email as quickly as possible.
