I, , understand and agree to the following terms and conditions.
On acceptance into any program, students are required to pay a 20% NON-REFUNDABLE deposit within 14 days; if not paid within 14 days, student’s place in the program will be forfeited.
I agree to pay this NON-REFUNDABLE deposit or FULL AMOUNT for course(s) shown.
Upon reading these terms and conditions, students agree they are entering a legally binding contract that requires them to pay the NON-REFUNDABLE 20% deposit.
Please note: NO REFUND will be issued.
There are no refunds for withdrawal from a bundle or package. If a student advises withdraws from a bundle after paying their deposit, they are required to pay the difference between the deposit and the value of the programs undertaken.
If the student advises withdrawal from a program more than 28 days prior to commencement, any fees paid above the 20% deposit may be refunded.
If the student advises withdrawal from the program within 28 days of commencement, the entire program fee is required to be paid. Upon registration, credit cards will be taken as collateral. AAFTA reserves the right to charge the authorized card on file if student advises withdrawal and fails to fulfil the agreed upon program payment plan between student and AAFTA. In this scenario, AAFTA will charge the student’s credit card in accordance with the payment amount and dates agreed upon in the payment plan between student and AAFTA.
There will be no other refunds. Any refunds sought will be considered at American Arts Film & Television Academy, LLC sole discretion.
There will be no reimbursement or refunds to any student who is suspended or expelled from any AAFTA program.
Payment plans are available to all students. Payment plan agreements must be adhered to at all times. There will be no amendments to payment plans, unless significant evidence can be provided, and with permission from the studio director. Any payments not received by set dates will incur a 10% interest fee. For payments made more than 14 days late a further 10% interest fee will be added and so on, until the amount has been made in full. AAFTA reserves the right to charge credit cards if course funds are not received.
Should contract be breached, AAFTA reserves the right to engage in litigation.
If any dispute arises under this Agreement, both Parties shall negotiate in good faith to settle such dispute. If the parties cannot resolve such disputes themselves, then either party may submit the dispute to mediation by a mediator approved by both parties. If the parties cannot agree with any mediator or if either party does not wish to abide by any decision of the mediator, they shall submit the dispute to arbitration by any mutually acceptable arbitrator, or the American Arbitration Association (AAA). The costs of the arbitration proceeding shall be borne according to the decision of the arbitrator, who may apportion costs equally or in accordance with any finding of fault or lack of good faith of either party. If either party does not wish to abide by any decision of the arbitrator, they shall submit the dispute to litigation. The jurisdiction for any dispute shall be administered in the State of California.
