Transfers, Cancellations & Refunds
Refund requests made prior to Friday, April 29, 2022 will result in a full refund minus a $30 processing fee and the original transaction fee. Refund requests made prior to Friday, June 3, 2022 will result in a refund of 1/2 of the tuition paid. In order to make a refund request, please email Vickie Festo at vfesto at darienps.org.
No refunds will be issued after June 3rd unless they are due to a significant personal circumstance. These requests must be in writing and will be judged on a case-by-case basis by the Darien Summer School Director. Any approved refunds after June 3rd are subject to a $30 fee.
If a student’s withdrawal from a class is related to Darien's ESY program, a full refund will be issued (family will be exempt from $30 processing fee).
*Please note: DSS is unable to prorate tuition for students who don't attend all of the scheduled classes.
If a student is quarantined for any reason, they will not be able to attend DSS in person but will be given optional synchronous or asynchronous work to complete. Students taking Biology, Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2, or Precalculus for credit will be required to complete assigned work to earn credit.
If a teacher is absent due to COVID-19, a substitute will lead the class.
No refunds will be given in either of the aforementioned scenarios.
A registration may be transferred for the same student to another course under the following guidelines:
- Prior to the first Friday of Summer School: Free of charge
- Due to a class cancellation by DSS: Free of charge
- After the first Friday of Summer School: $30 processing fee for each transfer
If a course is cancelled by DSS, full tuition will be refunded. DSS reserves the right to limit or cancel any under-subscribed courses as late as 3 days before classes begin; although, effort will be made to cancel well before then so that families can plan accordingly. Every attempt will be made to notify parents of class cancellations as soon as possible.
