WIT’s classes meet for two and a half hours once a week for 8 weeks. Please check your schedule carefully to ensure that you can attend all class dates. If you expect to miss more than two of the eight classes in the session, you should wait until the next term to take a class. Students who miss more than two class sessions of any class must re-take that class before advancing to the next level. Students who miss more than three class sessions may be dropped from the class at the instructor’s discretion; no refund or credit will be issued.
WIT does not offer make-up classes. Dropping in on different sections is not advisable because 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’s classes program strives to create a welcoming and safe creative atmosphere for all. Students are a part of creating this atmosphere and those whose conduct violates it will be removed from class by WIT, with their tuition refunded. WIT does not discriminate on the basis of gender, race, sexual preference, or physical disability. That said, students with physical disabilities are asked to contact WIT before registering for a class, so we can do our best to provide an accommodating class experience
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.
Class registration includes a $50 non-refundable deposit. Class withdrawal refunds can be processed up to eight days prior to the class start date. No refunds or credits may be issued to any student who withdraws less than eight days prior to the first day of class, or after a class has commenced. If you must transfer from one class into another, a $25 transfer fee will be assessed.
Advancement in WIT classes is not automatic. Students advance to the next level in the curriculum when they meet attendance requirements and/or their instructor deems them ready to move on. Repeating a class is a common occurrence and students often choose to repeat or revisit a level of the curriculum to build greater mastery.
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.
WIT classes must abide by the venue’s availability. For information about weather closings, check the WIT Facebook page and Twitter account. If your class takes place at CentroNia, please check the DCPS website as well. As soon as we know about the availability of the space, we will e-mail students and put information online. In case of a cancellation, a make-up class will be scheduled.
