Tuition tax receipts

The Asylum has been approved by Ministry of Human Resources and Skills Development to provide T2202 forms for tax deduction.

T2202 (tax tuition forms) are available for anybody who is 16 years of age or older (including those who turn 16 in the calendar year). At least $100 in tuition will have had to have been paid in that time period.

At the end of February, you will be provided, by email, with the tax forms for the previous year. A SIN number of the student and current address is required to complete this form.

Makeup policy

If an instructor cancels any lessons or classes, the instructor is obliged to make up those lessons or classes

If a student cancels a private lesson with reasonable notice, the instructor will do his best to arrange a makeup lesson, pending the instructor’s schedule. If the instructor’s schedule does not permit it, or if insufficient notice is given, the instructor is under no obligation to make up the lesson

Lengthy absences for medical reasons will be considered for refund upon receipt of a written request with a doctor’s certificate

Withdrawal policy


Class lessons have a NO REFUND POLICY

The Asylum for Art reserves the right to cancel, postpone or combine classes and to limit registration or change instructors. Should insufficient registration cause the cancellation of a class, fees will be refunded or the student may transfer to another course if room is available

Private Lessons

If a student formally withdraws from private lessons before the fourth scheduled lesson, a tuition refund will be issued less a $25 processing fee and the cost of the four lessons.

Instructors may initiate withdrawals at any time. In such cases, students will receive an appropriate refund
