Affinity Climbing Instructor Programs: Refund and Cancellation Policy

  • To accept and hold your space on a program, a deposit of $100.00 is due within two weeks of acceptance. Failure to pay your deposit will result in being dropped from the program. Your full tuition is due within ten weeks of the program’s start date. Failure to pay your full tuition will result in being dropped from the program. 
  • If you cancel your enrollment for any reason outside of ten weeks prior to the program’s start date, you’ll be refunded all but $100.00 of your tuition. If you cancel your enrollment within ten weeks of the program’s start date, the AMGA will retain 100% of your tuition. You will receive a full-tuition refund if the AMGA cancels the program prior to the program’s start date. The AMGA is not responsible for costs associated with these cases, outside of tuition.
  • If you need to discuss a payment plan for your program tuition, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to work with you to create an individual payment plan. The sooner we can create a payment plan, the better, as it helps to know in advance how to best meet everyone’s needs.
