Any decision to cancel a class or workshop for lack of enrollment is made on the Thursday preceding the class. Students, who have enrolled in a cancelled class or workshop have several options.

    When requested by the student, MPW will write a check to reimburse the amount paid to enroll, and mail the check. (The student is also welcome to pick the check up in person at the Farmington Hills campus by appointment only.)

MPW will make every attempt to refill that vacated seat from our waiting list. If no replacement is found, the entire deposit is forfeited, up to but not to exceed 50% of the entire class or workshop fee. The penalty of forfeit might be waived if extenuating medical circumstances exist. (Medical proof may be required.)
