What is your policy for withdrawals and refunds?
Withdrawals and Refunds: If Pratt cancels a class or significantly alters a class a full refund will be issued unless the student decides to be placed in an alternate class. In order to withdraw from a class voluntarily students must contact the Front Desk by phone or email and request to be withdrawn. Students who withdraw from a class at least ten days prior to its first meeting will receive a 90% tuition refund. Please note that all classes consider 10% of tuition to be a non-refundable deposit in cases of withdrawal. Refunds will be issued within 14 business days from the date of withdrawal. Students withdrawing fewer than ten days from the first day of class are not eligible for a refund.

What does it mean to be on Pratt’s waitlist?
As soon as a class fills at Pratt, additional students are put on a waitlist. If an enrolled student drops that class, waitlisted students will be contacted to see if they are still interested in taking the class.
