Being more than 30min late to class will count as an absence. Students who are continually more than 15min late to class may be asked to repeat the level at the instructor’s discretion. Email your teacher if you are going to be late. A teacher can structure that day’s lessons differently if there are multiple students who won’t be there on time. Also your teacher and your fellow students will worry about you!
WIT does not allow students to drop in on different sections in order to make up for a missed week. We wish to respect the progress of each individual class. If you must miss a class, please check in with your instructor to see what you missed

WIT retains absolute control over its class enrollment. WIT has the right to remove any student from class at any time for any reason, on a temporary or on a permanent basis, at WIT’s sole discretion with full tuition granted. WIT also reserves the right to restrict registration to any student, on a temporary or on a permanent basis. WIT does not remove a student from class lightly, but sometimes it may be necessary to maintain a welcoming and safe creative atmosphere.
WIT classes are suitable for adults 18 years of age or older.
Students often form a tight bond with their classmates. We cannot guarantee that you will be able to be in the next level with all your improv buddies. WIT classes have a very competitive registration process, so you should all coordinate what teacher or day of the week you’d like to take classes well in advance. Be prepared to split up with some of your friends for one term if necessary—playing with as many new people as possible will make you a better improviser overall!
For waitlists, email email@example.com with the subject line “Waitlist” with the day and level of class you are interested in taking. Should a spot become available, you will be notified immediately by email and given 24 hours to respond to sign up for the class. The wait list is disabled one week after the class commences. If you sign up for another class in the meantime, you will be charged the $25 transfer fee to transfer classes should a spot become available.
If it has been more than two years since you were enrolled in class you may be asked to repeat a level. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org before signing up.
Please review the class description to ensure you meet any prerequisites for the class you select. WIT will contact you if we have questions about your registration.
If you are coming from another theater, please email email@example.com to discuss which class to start. Every training program is different, with their own set of values, vocabulary, and approaches to improv. WIT is dedicated to making sure that you enter into our program where it is right for you and for your potential classmates! Please be prepared to provide the following information:
- Where did you previously study improv (university, other improv school)?
- Who were your instructors?
- What courses did you take with them and when (month/year)?
If, after the first class, you and/or your instructor feel like you would be better suited to a different class, we can arrange for you to transfer classes at no extra charge.
