Event Registration Policy & Guest Passes

Due to our non-profit status, we cannot confirm access to events without prior reservation, nor can we hold reservations without prepayment. No refunds will be given for cancellations made fewer than 48 hours before events. An additional fee will be added to the price of admission if paid at the door.

Guest tickets may be used for AFA on-site cultural events (non-fundraising) of your choice during membership period. You must call or email us to make a reservation for an event using a guest pass to ensure we give accurate numbers to our caterers and to account for seating as needed.

Private Classes Policy

Payment must be made in full before the first class of each new contract. Private courses tuition is not refundable. 
If you need to cancel a lesson, please contact the teacher directly by 5pm the day before your lesson or you will be charged for a one-hour lesson.

Discounts

Students who repeat the same class in a consecutive quarter receive 50% off tuition (levels 101-305).

Families living within the same household receive a 10% discount on tuition for regular group classes.

French teachers receive a scholarship of 50% of tuition costs.

Students receive 10% off tuition on the 2nd class for which they enroll in the same session.

Refunds

Registration ends one week prior to the beginning of each session. Full refunds on tuition and registration before the end of the registration period (Winter Session: Dec. 29th, Spring Session: March 24th, Summer Session: June 23rd, Fall Session: Sept. 22nd) are subject to a $40 administrative fee. Students retain their membership. Classes will be opened with a minimum of five students.

Alliance Française may cancel a class for insufficient enrollment. Tuition and the registration fee are then refunded in full. Students retain their membership.

Because of our nonprofit status, our commitment to keeping tuition costs down, and our responsibility to our teachers, tuition and fees cannot be refunded or transferred to another session, to another person, or to private lessons, after the following dates: Winter Session: Dec. 29th, Spring Session: March 24th, Summer Session: June 23rd, Fall Session: Sept. 22nd.

Books are not returnable or refundable, except if they were not picked up.

Registration Policy and Fees

Students can register online, in person and by phone (404 875 1211). All new-students pay a one-time non-refundable $15 registration fee.

As a membership organization, Alliance Française requires annual membership dues of all its students. This membership entitles students to numerous benefits. Tuition costs do not include books, or the membership and registration fees.

Students benefit from an “early bird” discount of $25 off tuition when registering by the specific registration deadline. In the case of late registration, the price for the entire session is due.

Classes run the whole length of the session (10 weeks) unless otherwise indicated. Classes are not prorated. The make-up class policy allows students to make-up 1 class per session.

Payment: Payment including tuition, membership and books must be made in full before the end of the registration period, by credit card (VISA/MC), check, or cash. American Express is accepted only online. There is an online convenience fee of $5.00

Please note that bounced checks result in an additional fee of $25.
