LOW ENROLLMENT                       

If The Chicago Mosaic School cancels the course for which you have enrolled, you will receive a full refund regardless of the time frame stated above. 

Classes are cancelled when enrollment minimums are not reached. The Chicago Mosaic School and instructors determine this minimum enrollment number.

Cancellations may be made up to THREE (3) days prior to the first day of the class. Students will be notified of the cancellation via email or by telephone.  

Full tuition will be refunded via PayPal within two business days of cancellation notification. Students may opt to receive credit towards any future course that The Chicago Mosaic School may offer.



Gift Certificates are non-refundable. All Gift Certificates have an expiration date of one year from date of purchase.



If you signed up for a class or workshop and need to change sessions, you will be charged at rescheduling fee of 20% of the total class/workshop price, as well as paying for any additional classes during the sequence. 

Groupon Workshops: Groupons have a rescheduling fee of $20/person for a reservation rebooking. 

Due to the high demand and limited spaces, cancellations MUST be made more than TWO (2) business days before your workshop in order to reschedule your spot.
Late Arrivals: If you are 30mins or more to your Groupon workshop, you will be charged a $20/person rescheduling fee due to workshop sizes.
You may also opt to use the amount of your unredeemed Groupon purchase towards any CMS class or workshop.

If The Chicago Mosaic School cancels the Groupon Workshop for which you have enrolled, you will receive a one time rescheduling fee waived regardless of the time frame stated above. 

Please contact the office via email to confirm your rescheduling.
