Enrollment Policy

Students may enroll in person during normal business hours. Alternatively, students may send the enrollment form, accessible from the Class Schedule page, with a check, credit card info or cash. Please send all payments to:

ItaLingua Institute
870 Market Street, Suite 701
San Francisco, CA 94102
 

Full payment must be made at least 24 hours before the first class. We reserve the right to charge an additional 10% for late enrollment. Pre-registration is required as we make every attempt to limit the classes to 14 students. We are unable to offer classes without sufficient enrollment (minimum of 7 students per class) and we reserve the right to cancel or rearrange classes if enrollment is less than the minimum.

Class changes can be made during the 1st and 2nd week of the term only.

Should you miss a class, please call the office to arrange a make-up lesson. Make-ups could be the same class at a different time, or another similar class that would be beneficial to the student. Make-ups can only be made during the same term as the original missed class.

Non-discriminatory policy: ItaLingua admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin.

Please call our main office in San Francisco (415) 362-6025 for any questions you might have concerning our Berkeley location.
