Christa McAuliffe Academy School of Arts and Sciences Pledge
At CMASAS we get education. We understand that not all students learn the same way, at the same pace, and at the same time. We understand our model is different. Students and parents may need time to adjust. We back up our personalized education with a trial period for full-time enrollments. We allow students to rollover unused courses when renewing with continuous full-time enrollment. We also offer a tuition refund policy for individual course enrollments. Review our complete enrollment and tuition policies below.
CMASAS Start Date
CMASAS strives to accommodate requested start dates. The enrollment start date will be based on availability. The enrollment start date is the date a course is processed and available for student activity, regardless of the date a student actually logs in to begin.
CMASAS Full-time Trial Enrollment Details
If for any reason our Personalication model isn’t the right fit for your student, notify us before your student is enrolled in their 3rd course and within 30 days of your enrollment start date. We will cancel your enrollment with no further tuition payment obligation. If paid in full, a refund will be issued less one monthly payment for the plan selected. Registration fees are non-refundable.
The trial period is for students who have not previously enrolled in CMASAS. The trial period ends upon enrollment of a third course including the Foundations in Personalized Learning course or the end of 30 days, whichever is sooner. The parent or guardian must notify CMASAS of their intent to withdraw via the Student Withdrawal Request Form. Registration fees are non-refundable.
CMASAS Individual Course Trial Enrollment Details
We offer a full refund less $200 per course enrollment within 30 days of the enrollment start date. There is no refund after 30 days of enrollment on individual course enrollments. Individual courses are nontransferable.
CMASAS Course Drop Details
A student has up to 30 days to drop a course and not have it reflected on their academic record. After 30 days, and through the enrollment end date, a student will receive a “W” for withdrawal for any dropped course. The student will receive an “I” for incomplete if they don’t complete the course by the enrollment end date.
CMASAS Student Course Change Policy
A student has up to 30 days to drop a course and not have it reflected on their academic record. After 30 days, and through the enrollment end date, a student will receive a “W” for withdrawal for any dropped course. The student will receive an “I” for incomplete if they do not complete the course by their withdrawal date. A course change fee of $200 may apply to any course dropped regardless of the length of enrollment. All courses reflected on a student academic record count toward their course enrollment credits. This policy applies to dropping or adding Honors after a course has started.
CMASAS Full-time Student Course Add Policy
CMASAS reserves the right to limit student course enrollments within the final four weeks of an enrollment period unless a renewal has been processed. Students will be required to complete all current course enrollments prior to adding additional courses during this time period.
CMASAS Course Rollover Details
Sometimes life gets in the way, and a student may not complete a full enrollment of 12 semester courses within a 12-month period. CMASAS allows students to rollover unused courses that are in-progress and/or not used from one academic year to the next with continuous enrollment. Students access rolled over credits after having completed their current enrollment plan credits.
