Makeup Class Policy:
Classes are only made up when they are cancelled by the Marymount Swim School staff. No full or partial refunds will be given for missed classes.
Refund Policy:It is our goal to make our swimming lessons available to as many students as we can. However, to maintain safety and quality interaction between students and instructors, we limit our enrollment. Therefore, we close enrollment when our classes are full. Dropping out of a class within one week prevents us from being able to provide swimming instruction to students who might otherwise have been able to register for a class.
Full refunds are given when requested earlier than seven (7) days from the start of the class. No refunds are given within seven (7) days of class.
