While a negative COVID-19 test is not required to check in for your program, we strongly encourage all participants to take a COVID-19 test prior to arriving on campus. Additionally, if you are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, we kindly request that you stay home and prioritize the health and safety of our community.
Students who withdraw for medical reasons may be eligible to receive a prorated adjustment of tuition for their program. To request a medical withdrawal from an on-campus program, the student is required to submit written verification from a doctor that confirms the student couldn't complete the program due to a medical issue. Verifications must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org.
While proof of vaccination is no longer required, we strongly recommend all participants receive the full COVID-19 vaccination, including the primary series and a booster dose, for the well-being and safety of our community.
