Part-Time Refund Policy

NOTE: This policy applies to all certificate programs, seminars, workshops and acting camps held at The Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts. It does not apply to our Full-time Dramatic Arts Program Diploma.

NOTE: Vancouver Academy of Dramatic Arts shall heretofore be written as VADA for the purposes of this policy.


Cancellations will be accepted up to 5 business days (during work hours) after registration is received or 5 business days prior to the start of the class/seminar/workshop (whichever happens first).  If you let us know in writing within this time frame, we’ll refund your payment less a $100 processing fee.  After this time, your payment is non refundable and non transferable.

In certain situations a credit may be awarded. Credits can only be awarded before the class start date, at which point the student can defer up to 6 months of the original start date. A student will only be allowed to defer two times, a third deferral will result in the expiration of said credit. No refunds will be offered on this credit.
