FAQ

I signed up for a course, now what?

Course registration is on a first come first served basis. Once you sign up and complete your payment online (via PayPal), you will be effectively enrolled in the course. Look out for a confirmation email outlining more details a week before classes begin. 

How can I pay for my course?

You can pay for your course via Debit or Credit card. You will be provided a link to pay online via PayPal. 

What happens if there is no more room in the course I’m interested in?

If there are no spots left in the course, you may contact the MiniCourses Coordinator by email and ask to be placed on the waitlist. 

If I don’t enjoy the course, can I get a refund?

Yes! You may get a full refund + ($5.00 administration fee) if you no longer wish to take the course after the FIRST class, you have 48 hours to submit a refund request. If you wish to discontinue the course at a later date, you may stop attending, however you will NOT be issued a refund. Special cases may be considered. All refund requests must be sent to the MiniCourses Coordinator by email.

Can I get a refund for Workshops, Bundles and/or Super Minis?

Yes! However you must advise the MiniCourses Coordinator by email 10 days prior to the course start date or 10 days after purchase for the Dance & Fitness Bundle. No refunds will be issued afterwards whether you attend the workshop or not.

What if I want to enroll in a course that has already started/missed the deadline?

If there is still room in the course you would like to participate in, and you don’t mind that you missed a day or two, you are still welcome to sign up! Contact the MiniCourses Coordinator by email to complete registration. Please note however, no discount will be offered…

Where can I find the list of courses being offered this semester?

You can find courses by browsing our ‘Courses’ or ‘Super Mini Courses’ tab. Click on a course that interests you, and find out all of the details!

How come the class I signed up for got cancelled?

After registration ends, if a course does not have enough participants, unfortunately it will get cancelled. You will be notified by email and offered a full refund. It is likely we will offer the course again next semester in hopes that it will spark more interest!

I don’t go to McGill, am I allowed to take a course?
