The registration deposit serves to reserve a space in a course. The balance is due on the first day of class. Or you can choose to pay the full fee at once.
In case of absence to the first class, we'll hand out the course material so that you can review the material and join on the second class. (provided course has been paid in full). Or you can request a make up class.
Make up classes: we offer one free make up class per student. Class will take place in any available ongoing course. (we cannot guarantee specific days and times).
Note: The syllabi that we hand out for free for your course has the material and list of assignments for each class. Should you be unable to attend both the original class and the make up class, please use your syllabi to review the material, and complete the assignments so that they can be reviewed next class.
Schedule Options & Open house
The options below are prepared specifically to provide a chance for students who can't commit to a full duration of a course, or those who are looking to get to know us prior to registration:
* "Pay Per Class" plan: This is a program through which you can pay per class. No presence no charge.
* Free monthly seminars, Exhibitions, and walk-ins: you may use any of these methods to not only view our school, but to get to know our instructors, students, and a live class.
In cases when an instructor becomes suddenly available, courses will be assigned a different instructor than that stated online.
In case of discontinuation by Student After Full Payment:
PhotoManhattan may, at it's sole discretion, offer to transfer up to 40% of the amount paid towards a new course if and when the reasons for discontinuation are considered an emergency or health related issue.
For this offer to be considered, student must submit such request no later than on the 2nd class of the original course.
Offers will be made on a case by case basis. Credit amount will be determined based on each individual circumstance. Credits are a courtesy only and are not guaranteed at any time.
The remaining balance of the course fee, thereafter, must be paid in full at the time of switch into the new courses.
NOTE: Credits, discounts, and special arrangements will be granted ONLY one time per individual. No discounts are available for Darkroom and Studio courses.
Course Cancellation by PhotoManhattan
Should a course need to be cancelled, PhotoManhattan will offer students a full refund of the amount paid OR a full credit towards a new course, within 4 weeks of the cancelled course start date. If the student chooses to use the credit towards a new course, PhotoManhattan's policy will then apply.
