REFUND AND TRANSFER FEE

Refunds or transfers will require a $10 processing fee and will be cheerfully provided if the request is made at least one week prior to the start of class. No refunds will be provided beyond the first class meeting unless the class is canceled. The state of Oklahoma requires a social security number on file for cash or check refunds.

CANCELLATIONS

All classes must have at least four students. The College reserves the right to cancel or combine classes as necessary. In the event that a class is canceled, you will receive a full refund. If a cancellation or change occurs, our staff will contact you via the telephone number you provided at the time of registration.

CHOOSING THE CORRECT LEVEL

To ensure your child's proper placement, carefully review the class levels. If you are unsure about placement, enroll your child in the lower level. Children who have had more than a three-month break from swimming should repeat the previous level as a refresher course. Children registered for an inappropriate class level are not guaranteed a transfer because the correct level may be full. Children will be tested on the first day.
