Workshop fees (minus a processing fee) are refundable up until one week prior to the program. 

If the Director of IT and Administration is notified at least one week prior to the scheduled start date, a processing fee of $50 is charged for dropping adult classes, YFA classes, or workshops costing $100 or more or a $25 processing fee is charged for dropping programs costing under $100.
