SCT Policies and Procedures

In-class:The balance of payment for all courses, workshops or programs is to be paid one week before class begins. There are no refunds.
If a student does not complete or has to withdraw from a program or course or workshop for any reason, there are no refunds. The student may apply to continue their studies no later than one year from the start of the initial Program. For this there is an administration fee of $125 and acceptance is at the discretion of the instructor. If there is an increase in fees, the student is liable for the increased costs upon return to their studies.
Should a student miss a class for any reason it is their responsibility to catch-up. Students are encouraged to liaise with each other and help out in these situations. Additional private tutoring is available at $125 an hour for a minimum time of 2 hours. The maximum time a student may miss in any Course or Program is at the SCT discretion. Student may apply to their instructor for an extension. Extensions are given subject to instructor approval and the discretion of the Board of SCT. Without attendance as specified in the program an incomplete would be considered and the student is not able to take the examinations.
When a student requires extended time to complete a course of study they must contact Administration at SCT to apply for an extension. If an extension is granted there is an administration fee of $125. This administration fee is payable upon approval of the extension.
The successful candidate for extension is granted a further six months from the end of their course of study to complete. ie: Jack took Holistic Foot Reflexology Training in November 2007. He has to complete the program requirements, including practicum and exams by November 2008. After applying for, receiving extension approval, and making the appropriate payment for an extension, Jack would have until May 2009 to complete all requirements. If he is unable to complete all requirements for certification in that timeframe he has to take the course again to be able to certify.
