If you need to postpone for any reason, we do offer the option of a one-time deferral. This allows you to transfer to a future program start date. This can only be granted once, regardless of whether you are taking a single class or the full certificate.

Deferral Fees

  • If you make your request at least 2 weeks before the session start date, there is no fee.
  • If your request is made less than 2 weeks before, you will be charged a $250 transfer fee.
