Operating Policy

Tuition Refunds – Because of the small class size and our commitment to faculty based on registration, Anar Center enforces the following policy regarding payment, withdrawal and refunds:

  • Payment must be made IN FULL at the time of class registration for new students. Already enrolled students must register one week before their current term ends to ensure their space and time in the next class level.

  • Tuition payments, tuition deposits and textbook purchases are NON-REFUNDABLE and can not be transferred or postponed to a future term. No credit or refunds can be given in any form.

  • A registration fully paid, can be gifted to someone who wishes to take a class during the term for which the original student is registered.

  • Class tuition can only be transferred to private lessons upon approval.

  • These policies are in place to ensure class size and space for potential students.

Classroom Homework – Clients are encouraged to contact the office for homework assignments when absent.

Classroom Visitors – No visitors are allowed in class, including parents, spouses, relatives, siblings and children. They are welcome to wait for you in our lounge where there are reading materials, coffee, tea and edibles. PETS are NOT allowed in any area of Anar Center.

Children Supervision - All children must be supervised by an adult at all times unless they are in their designated class. All children must be picked up on time at the end of class as there is no after class supervision and a very limited time between classes.

Children Safety - All parents or guardians must provide an emergency contact for minors as well as inform our staff of any allergies or medical conditions for all minors.

Class Duration - Each class is 1 hour long, however, some classes may run between 1 hour and 1 hour and 15 minutes at the teacher's discretion.

Classroom and Center Courtesy – Anar Center reserves the right to dismiss any student or gaurdian at its discretion for lack of common courtesy or infringement of any rule of the Center. Which includes but is not limited to any disruption of Anar Center’s classes, maintaining a clean space for everyone to enjoy or excessive noise in the lounge area or any part of the Center.

Rescheduling Private Lessons – Please contact the office to schedule. Private lesson tuition is non-refundable. Rescheduling requires 24 hour notice, or, for a Monday lesson, notice must be given on Friday. Students may make 2 schedule changes per 8 lessons if space is available in the calendar. Clients are charged in full for lessons missed or rescheduled late. Clients must speak to an administrator when making any changes and these must be made during business hours, voice messages and emails are not acceptable in this situation. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate any rescheduling of classes if and when the calendar during a term is full and space is not available.

Make-Up Classes – Students enrolling at Anar Center are purchasing a specific language class meeting once a week, at an exact day and time. Anar Center assures that a place will be available for the class in which you enroll, and that no more than 10 students for adults and 10-12 students for children (children’s class size is based on age and class level), will be in any class. We understand that our students busy lives dictate that occasionally they are unable to attend class in which they have enrolled. In order to accommodate these situations, we allow a student to attend another class as a makeup class at no additional charge as long as the following rules are followed:

No more than two make-ups are permitted per term. Once a makeup class has been assigned and noted on the roll sheet, it counts as one of the two make-up classes allowed for that term, whether or not the student attends the class.

No homework will be given to a student who attends a makeup class.

Under some unique circumstances, we may allow make ups to be carried over to another subsequent term as long as the student enrolls in the subsequent term.

We will do our best to accommodate requests when available and reasonable, at our sole discretion. If such classes are unavailable, we do not have an obligation to provide make-up classes. We may not be able to accommodate or provide any make up classes if and when the calendar during a term is full and space is not available. Anar Center reserves the right to discontinue this program at any time if the administrative burden becomes too great.

Students should note that a make up classes are never as good as coming to a student’s regular class; they may not cover the exact same material.. They are intended to be greatly beneficial as an additional opportunity to learn new things or reinforce knowledge already covered.

Workshops - Due to the limited space in each workshop, workshop fees are Non-Refundable. No credit or refunds can be given in any form. You may gift your workshop enrollment to someone that meets all the original workshop enrollment requirements. However, if the registration was made under anyone's name other than the person attending the event, you must get approval by an Anar Center staff member (to update the roll call) and the person receiving the gift must be registered on our site 24 hours prior to the start of the workshop.

Books and Texts - Required textbooks, optional language tapes and workbooks will be available at an additional cost for purchase either online or at Anar Center and will be given to you at the first class meeting or you may pick them up in advance at Anar Center after completing registration in a class. If we do not have any of the material in stock, we will provide you with information on how to obtain them.

Refund Policy * - Tuition payments, tuition deposits and textbook purchases are NON-REFUNDABLE and can not be transferred or postponed to another term.

We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone - Under federal anti-discrimination laws, businesses can refuse service to any person for any reason, unless the business is discriminating against a protected class. At the national level, protected classes include: Race, color, national origin, citizenship status, religion, sex or disability. In California it includes, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity, medical condition, military or veteran status, status as a victim of domestic violence, assault, or stalking.
