The program price is based on a minimum of 20 program participants. Payment amounts may vary according to the final number of program participants. All payments, including any supplements, will be paid directly to ACCENT by each participant. Participants will be accommodated on a space available basis until the final payment deadline. After the final payment deadline, the program is considered closed; additional participants may be able to join the program on a case-by-case basis, depending on conditions at the time and ACCENT’s sole discretion.
A security deposit of $200 per participant (which is included in the program price listed above) will be paid directly to ACCENT by each participant. This amount will be refunded to program participants approximately three months following the end of the program, less any charges for damages, unreturned items, etc.
Failure to make any payment when due shall automatically cancel participant from the program one week after payment due date. All payments are effective the day they are received by the ACCENT San Francisco Center. ACCENT, in its sole discretion, may reinstate an applicant subject to availability of space and late enrollment fees.
