Transfer Policy

SRP, in its sole discretion and only under strictly necessary circumstances, may grant you a transfer from a course in which you are currently enrolled into another course currently offered at SRP or another course offered at SRP on a future date. Transfers are only granted by SRP under strictly necessary circumstances and are subject to seat availability. SRP makes no guarantee of the ability to transfer or of seat availability in a subsequent course. You will not be refunded the difference of cost if you transfer into a less expensive course. If you transfer into a more expensive course, then you will be required to pay SRP the price difference. If you are on a payment plan when you transfer into a new course, the payment dates will not change.

 

Loyalty Program Policy

SRP recognizes the investment that you make with us towards your education. The listed standardized test preparation courses and/or individual sessions qualify for this loyalty program. Upon completing a class or series of individual sessions, you will be eligible to receive a credit that can go towards the registration fee of the test that you are taking. For individual sessions, a minimum of 8 attended sessions qualifies you for the loyalty credit. For classes, attending at or around 90% of the scheduled sessions qualifies you for the loyalty credit. The credit is subject to change as the registration fee is set by the respective test agencies. Once you have completed your final session and have complied with the loyalty program requirements, SRP will issue the credit in 5-7 business days.

Student Code of Conduct

SRP prioritizes the need for a productive learning environment. We ask that all students agree and acknowledge to be held responsible of adhering to our Student Code of Conduct.

 

  • Students will respond to instructors in a respectful manner.

  • Students will take responsibility for their own learning.

  • Students will respect their classmates.

  • Students will behave in a safe manner regarding themselves, others, and property.

  • Students will observe and practice netiquette that includes online communication, conversing online, and conducting yourself on any online platforms used during the session.

  • No cell phones at any time during teaching. In the exception of an emergency situation, texting, calling, or using phones in any way is prohibited during teaching.

 

SRP, instructors, and staff will not tolerate any conduct which substantively interferes with the operation of our classes. Such conduct includes, but is not limited to, inappropriate behavior that causes the disruption and administration of SRP and its activities.

 

SRP is experienced in classroom management and will always attempt to verbally resolve any behavior on site and online. By working with parents and instructors, SRP hopes to resolve any behavior issues that arise. In the event that the behavior is not resolved, the student and/or parent/guardian, may be asked to withdraw their student from the class.

 

The following steps will be taken if a pattern of disruptive behavior is unable to be resolved:

  • Written notice will be provided to the student or to the parent/guardian’s attention. The student may be instructed to step out of the classroom for a reasonable amount of time for the lesson to not be disrupted. If the disruption occurs online, the student will be asked to comply with the instructor’s request to resolve their behavior.

  • A final written notice will be provided to the student or to the parent/guardian if the behavior is not resolved. The student may be instructed to step out of the classroom for a reasonable amount of time for the lesson to not be disrupted. If the disruption occurs online, the student will be asked to comply with the instructor’s request to resolve their behavior.

  • If the student does not resolve their behavior after the written notice, the student will be withdrawn from the class. Please note that SRP will be unable to provide a refund if a student is asked to withdraw from a class due to disruptive behavior.
