ODE Refund Policy


$25 Deposit

A $25 deposit per student is required for parents to reserve a spot for their student(s). The deposit is non-refundable as long as the schedule the student requested remains available and no classes are unexpectedly cancelled (see below regarding class cancellations).

Unexpected Program Changes

Course offerings are subject to change, without prior notice, by action of the One Day Enrichment (ODE) administration offering the course/program. Changes include, but are not limited to, meeting time and location changes, instructor substitutions, and cancellation. Reasonable effort will be made to notify students of such changes and suggest alternatives if/when available. In the event of cancellation, ODE is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result; only the course fee, as well as laboratory fees or materials fees will be subject to refund.

If the expected courses are cancelled and the student no longer wants to continue in the program because of these cancellations, then the student can notify ODE administration within one week of the course cancellation (or the parent’s notification of the cancellation) and they can cancel enrollment and receive a full refund for the deposit and any other payments already delivered.

Regular Program Tuition

All course fees and materials fees are due on the first day of classes for each session. Although the deposit is non-refundable, course fees are refundable before the first day of classes. After the first day of classes, all course fees and materials fees are non-refundable.

IMPORTANT: No refunds are issued after the first day of classes. Only those who encountered unforeseen, extenuating circumstances may request a refund. Reasons such as the following are not be considered justification for a refund:

  • Lack of knowledge of ODE policies and regulations
  • Conditions or chronic illnesses that remain static and are known to the student at the time of registration/enrollment
  • Dissatisfaction with course(s), faculty and/or any other aspect of the program

To discuss a refund, please contact administration at (708)925-1225 or info@ode.email. Refunds may require between two weeks and eight weeks to administer depending on the timing of the request.
