Entire tuition is payable prior to class start. This fee must be submitted with the application to reserve a place in the class of your choice. If for some reason the prospective student is unable to attend this class, the fee can be credited to any future class or course offered by SeaSchool with no penalty.
Tuition Fees are due and payable not later than the first day of class. Tuition fees cover class book. Testing fees are additional fees payable at the time of the examination.
Applicants who are not accepted will receive a full refund of monies paid. Course tuition (less the registration deposit) is refundable only if SeaSchool is notified no less than three (3) days prior to the start date of class, the student will be unable attend the class. Tuition may be transferred to any other Sea School class on a space available basis. (Student is responsible to maintain proof of payment, check or contract receipt).
The registration deposit is not refundable. It is transferrable to any other Sea School class on a space available basis.
No money is refundable after the start of the class.
To cancel, the student should notify Sea School, by mail, email or other recordable means, of intention to cancel:
Sea School, 8440 4th St N,
St. Petersburg, FL 33702 or
A refund will not be granted after the completion of a course. However, the Guarantee Policy will be in effect without limitations.
In the event of an Act of God or Acts of God, that force cancellation or modifications of class schedules, Sea School will attempt to reschedule or otherwise accommodate students. Sea School will not be financially responsible for Acts of God.
The Coast Guard limits the number of persons (seats) in an approved course. Unless we can fill a seat of someone who cancels at the last minute (less than three days), we may forego the benefit of that seat/student. However, some cancellations are inevitable, and we will credit that tuition towards a future class.
