Cancellations and Refunds

Cancellation and Refund Policy

Penland makes a substantial investment when planning a workshop, and vacancies can be hard to fill even if there is a waiting list, so we must charge cancellation fees to offset the cost of these vacancies.

If you cancel anytime up to 30 days before the beginning of a workshop, you will receive a refund minus the $50 nonrefundable processing fee and a cancellation fee ($250 for concentration and $100 for all other workshops).

If you cancel less than 30 days before the beginning of the workshop, refunds are not available. However, if you test positive for COVID-19 within the 10 days prior to your workshop, please contact the registrar.

If it is necessary for Penland to cancel a workshop for any reason, students will be notified and offered another class or a full refund. We cannot, however, be responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets or other travel expenses. This policy also applies to partial scholarship recipients.
