Rules and Policies

1. Cancellation and Refund

Cancellation and refund requests must be received by e-mail (jpcourse@jflalc.org) by the cancellation deadline in order to receive a full refund. No refunds will be issued after the deadline passes.  The cancellation deadline is about one week before the first meeting, which means, in principle, you cannot cancel the course once the course starts.

2. Changing Courses

Before the cancellation deadline, you may change a course you have applied for, if there is still room in the course. You may change a course via e-mail or telephone. However, no course changes will be allowed after the deadline passes.

3. Changes by JFLA

The Japan Foundation, Los Angeles (JFLA), may cancel courses when necessary. Applicants will be notified in advance and receive refunds.  The course contents are subject to change.

4.  Cancellations by JFLA

JFLA may change a scheduled class due to an unforeseen circumstance.  In such a case, we will schedule a make-up class for the following week.

5. Course Availability

All courses are assigned on a first-come, first-served  basis. Registration for each course will  close once it is filled to capacity. A  drawing will be conducted in the office of the JFLA if full capacity is reached  and multiple applications are received on the same day.

6. Late Registration

After the first class has been held, you may not enroll in the course.

7. Self-assessment

To choose a course, read each course description.  Download a self-check and an assessment test to see if the course is suitable for you.  We might consult with you based on your self-check list and assessment test answers if necessary in order to help the assessment.

8. Transfer Courses

You cannot transfer the course you registered to another course after the cancellation deadline and after the first class starts.

9. Transfer Classes

If the same course is offered at two locations (Little Tokyo & Miracle Mile), and you are registered for one location (e.g. Little Tokyo), you can attend a make-up course the same week, once out of eight meetings, at the other location (e.g. Miracle Mile) with the approval of the instructor in advance.

10. Make-up Classe

You are responsible for your absence.  There are no make-up classes or refunds if you miss class.  We will provide you the materials for the class you missed, but do not offer private tutoring.

11. Waiting List

Once the class becomes full, applicants can be  placed on a waiting list.  If space  becomes available, applicants will be enrolled in the class.  If space does not become available after the cancellation deadline, JFLA will refund 100% of your payment.
