Class Drop Policy and Code of Conduct

SCHOOL CONDUCT & HARASSMENT POLICY

While in class at Impro Theatre School, students will participate in a creative process that is open and accepting of all individuals. Impro endeavors to create an environment that is supportive, inspirational, and safe. Any inappropriate behaviors including inappropriate verbal, physical, or sexual conduct, or the destruction of any property or of the Impro Theatre spaces, or the consumption of drugs or alcohol during class will not be tolerated and will result in removal from class, suspension from school, and forfeiture of class tuition. Impro has a zero-tolerance policy for racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or any other type of discrimination against a marginalized group. Be supportive of each other. For our online classes, we have a zero tolerance policy for the sharing of inappropriate or offensive materials, virtual backgrounds and links.

Impro requires students to refrain from using forms of comedy that are offensive, or discriminatory towards race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, etc. While we understand to a degree that this may happen accidentally, occurrences of this type of behavior are grounds for suspension without reimbursement.

IMPRO THEATRE SCHOOL’S CLASS DROP AND REFUND POLICY

RELAXED DROP POLICY DUE TO COVID-19

Below you will find the Impro School’s traditional drop policy. Due to the unpredictable nature of our current circumstances, we have elected to loosen this policy. Please reach out to us at school@improtheatre.com at any time if you need to drop a class, and we will work out a plan that works for you.

DROPPING A WORKSHOP CLASS

If you drop a workshop class (4-week classes, 12-week classes, Intro to Narrative, CORE 1, 2, 3, or 4) more than seven (7) business days prior to the start date, you can receive school credit for the amount you paid minus a non-refundable $25 processing fee. If you drop a workshop class less than seven (7) business days prior to or on the start date, you can receive school credit for the amount you paid minus a non-refundable $50 processing fee. If you drop a workshop class that is in session, you are not eligible for class credit or a refund.

If you are using the payment plan and drop the class before the second payment is processed or before the third payment is processed, the policies above still apply, and you must still fulfill the financial obligation to Impro Theatre School. If you don’t contact the School or fulfill the financial obligation within seven (7) days of dropping, you may be subject to late fees.

DROPPING AN ONGOING CLASSES OR A CONSERVATORY WORKSHOP

If you wish to drop an ongoing class (Ongoing CORE or IPF) or a conservatory workshop (Conservatory Workshops or LAB) in session, you must notify the tuition and admin office before the 1st of the month in order to not be charged for that month (tuition@improtheatre.com. No processing fee will be charged for students dropping ongoing class or a conservatory workshop. If you stop attending class without notifying the tuition office, you will be charged for the class until the tuition office has been notified.

REJOINING AN ONGOING CLASS

If you wish to join or rejoin an ongoing class, please email the Impro admin office (school@improtheatre.com) for approval before you attend the class.
