Requests for a change/switch of course will be processed until the first day of the semester. Requests to change/switch courses submitted after the first day of the semester will be considered as a request to withdraw, subject to the Saturday School refund policy. It is not our policy to transfer registration from one semester to another.
Admission & Dismissal Policies
UArts reserves the right to deny registration to any student based upon the student’s prior behavior or actions in a previous class, program or workshop at the University.
Additionally, any current student may be dismissed from his/her class and the program if found to be disruptive or behaving inappropriately in class or on the University campus. Students dismissed from any UArts Pre-College Program will be denied admission to future terms and programs.
Students in the Division of Continuing Studies are expected to adhere to a Student Code of Conduct.
In the event of inclement weather, contact the University of the Arts general information line at 215-717-6000 (then press 5) or visit the UArts website to determine whether classes have been canceled.
There will be a recorded message after 8:30 am on Saturdays only if there is a cancellation. No refunds or make-up classes will be scheduled as a result of a cancellation.
Many of the Pre-College Saturday School courses use nude models to help students build a strong foundation of observational skills. Students should anticipate the use of nude models in the following courses: Drawing I, Drawing II, Figure Drawing, Painting I, Painting II, and Portfolio Preparation. Saturday School courses are college-level, and Pre-College students are expected to behave with maturity and professionalism in the presence of a model.
Some instructors may include a field trip or walking tour as part of the curriculum. Parents/guardians sign consent on the registration form, which permits their child to attend these trips.
In the unfortunate event that UArts Pre-College must cancel a course due to low enrollment, parents/guardians and students will be notified and students will have the option of taking another course or receiving a full refund.
