Terms & Conditions


To receive a refund, you must notify us in writing at registration@newyorkschoolofthearts.org. There is a $15 administrative fee for each refund.

In order to receive a full refund, students must withdraw from a class or workshop twelve days prior to the first day of classes.

Students withdrawing from a class and workshop during the week before the beginning of the quarter will receive a 75% refund as school credit if within twelve days of the start of the class.  

No refunds will be made after the second class without medical documentation and no refunds will be made after a workshop begins.

Ceasing to attend class without notifying the school does not constitute withdrawal from class.  

Refunds are issued in the same form as payment. Refunds are issued within thirty days from request in the form of the same payment. Registration and service fees are non-refundable.



All transfers must occur before the second meeting of class. Transfers from one course into another may incur additional fees, depending on the transfer. Transfer from one workshop to another is not permitted. There is a $15 administrative fee for each transfer.



Classes and workshops are subject to cancellation if the minimum number of students required for a session are not met.  Notification will be sent to registered students five days before the class is scheduled to begin.



We accept personal checks, debit/credit cards, and money orders. The School does not accept cash. Returned checks will incur a $30 fee. New students are required to pay a one-time nonrefundable $50 registration fee.



We do not prorate fees if a participant wishes to register after the class has already begun. We do not prorate for missed classes.



We are closed for Thanksgiving, winter and spring break. If we must close due to weather, we will send out an email as well as update social media. The New York School of the Arts follows New York City Public Schools for weather-related closings. If classes are canceled, the instructor will work with the school office to schedule a make-up date. We do not refund/prorate for weather closure, and our make-up policy still applies.



Lockers can be reserved online or at the school office. Each locker rental is $10.00 per month. Student must provide their own lock. To rent a locker at the New York School of the Arts, you must be enrolled in a class for the session in which the rental applies. If a student intends to reserve the same locker for consecutive sessions, the student must update their locker registration with the office before the last day of the session.


Our kilns are located in our sculpture studio. Firing of work is separate from the class fee and is dependent upon readiness of work and kiln firing schedule. We fire when we have enough to fill a kiln. Work must be completely dry before firing. For more information on the available times and fees, please contact the school office. 


Completion of High School education or equivalent is required to enroll in the Certificate and Arts Intensive Programs.

These terms and conditions are subject to change without notice in our sole discretion.
