Items Subject to Cost Change
Items subject to cost or price changes are those which are outside the control of the school (i.e. insurance rates, text books, licensure, membership fees, and supplies or accessories which the student chooses. Seminars, massage services and tutorials vary from practitioner to practitioner). However, it is unlikely that these items would fluctuate more than 10% per year in cost. The cost of the tuition and test fees is not subject to change as listed in this catalog. Massage table and accessories, seminars and tutorials represent a cost average projected per student. A student may be able to acquire these goods and services for less or more. This is the student’s choice and the student agrees that it is their responsibility if the cost of the above mentioned items should run higher than projected in the above estimate.
Outside class time in the form of private instruction, workshops or seminars may be required to make up for missed class time, past due assignments and poor massage technique, hand skills and test grades. This is determined by the instructor. The cost may vary according to makeup requirements. It is recommended that students avoid make-up related expenses by attending all the classes, completing assignments on time, and following the program for hand skill and technique development. The successful student will not require remedial or tutorial instruction and therefore make-up costs will be minimal.
