Cancellation Policy

I understand that my payment of Fall Session’s tuition and annual PLS fee secures a place in a PLS Mandarin class for my child for the Fall session of the 2021-2022 school year (September 13, 2021 – November 19, 2022). I understand that the Mandarin program is a year long program made up of three sessions, but we pay by session. Re-enrollment and tuition payment for sessions two and three (November 29, 2021 – March 4, 2022 and then March 7, 2022 – May 27, 2022) will take place in November of 2021 and February / March of 2022.


The Fall session is ten weeks. Parents may cancel their student’s Mandarin fall session enrollment and receive a partial refund through the first two weeks of class starting. Specifically, the first class is held September 13, 2021; students have until 8:00pm PST on September 24, 2021, to request a partial refund. If a family cancels their Mandarin enrollment within this period, we will refund the tuition minus the PLS registration fee ($55) and a per class cost of $20 (based on how many classes their student attended).

There is no refund for Fall session after September 25, 2021.
