In the event that a class is canceled, participants will be contacted by Program Directors and informed of options available to them. FMC reserves the right to combine or cancel classes due to low enrollment.


If a program you wish to enroll in is full and you have not yet registered, you may be added to the Program Wait List. A Programming staff member will contact you in the event that space becomes available.  If you are on the wait list, we ask in advance for your patience and request that you do not call to check wait list status. In addition, please do not attend classes until you are fully registered.


All refunds are subject to approval and a $20 processing fee. Full refunds, less the processing fee, may be given if requested prior to the first day of classes or with a doctor’s medical note. After the first day of classes has passed, only partial refunds will be considered. Refunds may take 2-3 weeks to be processed. Refunds or credits will not be given after the conclusion of a program.
