ACADEMIC POLICIES FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION
Current course offerings can be found here.
The Seminary reserves the right to make changes in the courses offered, or to cancel or reschedule any class where low enrollment or other considerations warrant.
PAYMENT AND REFUND POLICIES
Payment should be made at the time of registration. Students paying by credit card through online registration have the option of paying in one, two or three installments, which will be charged directly to their credit card. Students who wish to pay by cash or check must pay in full prior to the course registration deadline. Checks should be made payable to Boston Islamic Seminary and sent to 100 Malcolm X Blvd Roxbury, MA 02120. A $25 fee will be charged for any returned check. Students interested in paying by cash should e-mail admin@BostonIslamicSeminary.org.
Weekend courses are eligible for a partial refund of 50% of the paid tuition if the withdrawal notification is received prior to the second class meeting. No refunds will be offered for withdrawal notifications received after the second class meeting for weekend courses.
Semester-long courses are eligible for a partial refund if withdrawal notification is received during the first month of classes. Students who withdraw prior to the second class meeting will be refunded 90% of the paid tuition. Students who withdraw prior to the fourth class meeting will be refunded 50% of the paid tuition. No tuition will be refunded for withdrawals that take place any time after the fourth class meeting.
ADD/DROP AND COURSE WITHDRAWAL
Students will not be charged a fee for adding, dropping, or withdrawing from courses before the registration deadline each semester. Students may also switch one course for another without a penalty within the first week of the semester. Students are accountable for all coursework for the classes they add from the first day the class begins.
To withdraw from a course or a program, students must notify the Seminary administration in writing of their intention to withdraw by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Failure to complete a course does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does notification to the instructor, nor does lack of attendance, nor does dissatisfaction with a course. Refunds are computed from the day on which written notice of withdrawal is received.
PAST DUE ACCOUNTS
Students paying in installments whose credit card accounts cannot be charged will be notified by e-mail that their account is past due. Students must make up the missed payment within 10 days of notification. If the account remains past due, the student will be dropped from the class. Students with open balances will not be eligible to register for new classes until their account has been fully brought up to date.
WEATHER AND EMERGENCY CONDITIONS
If the seminary closes due to inclement weather or for any other reason, a notice to this effect will be posted to the website and students will simultaneously be notified by e-mail.
