Class credits must be consumed within three (3) months from the agreed start date. Class credits will expire if they are not used within the given period of time.

Students are only allowed to be given make up classes for 1 on 1 lessons, provided that they notify The Study at least one (1) day before the class that they are going to miss. If the student does not send a notification through sms / email about an absence or tardiness, it is assumed that the student is attending class on time. For late notification and absences, the class is automatically marked consumed and will not be valid for arrangement of make-up classes. A confirmation reply from The Study will be sent for the request to be valid.
