I attended a Short Course previously, do I get a discount?

All returning students who have successfully completed a course under the LASALLE Continuing Education Programme and received a Certificate of Participation are eligible for a 10% discount for the next course you sign up for. The discount is valid for three years from the last course attended.

To qualify for the discount, please submit a copy of your certificate together with the application form. You may also email us at cep@lasalle.edu.sg to retrieve a copy for an administrative fee of $12.00. The full course fee applies should you be unable to provide us with the necessary documents.

Please note that for first time applicants, you are required to successfully complete your first course and receive a Certificate of Participation before you are eligible for the 10% discount.

Certificate of Participation

What will I receive upon completion of the course?

All participants with at least an 80% attendance rate for the duration of the course will receive a Certificate of Participation.

Cancellation and Refund

Will I get a refund if the class is cancelled?

A course may be cancelled if there is an insufficient number of applicants. If that happens, you have the option to transfer to the next available course or get a full refund.

I wish to withdraw from the course. Can I get a full refund?

A withdrawal request must be made in writing to cep@lasalle.edu.sg. The request will be evaluated based on the following guidelines:

  • A 100% refund if a participant's written notice of withdrawal is received more than seven working days before the course commencement date, less administration charge of $40.00.
  • A 50% refund if a participant's written notice of withdrawal is received three working days before the course commencement date, less administrative charges of $40.00.
  • No refund if a participant's written notice of withdrawal is received less than three working days before course commencement date.
  • Strictly no refund for missed class(es), no show or withdrawal on the day on or after the course has stared. For special package fee applicants, in the event that you wish to withdraw from the remaining course, the full course fee applies for the course(es) that has commenced. For example: Fashion Illustration Special Package Fee of $850 minus $480 (full fee for Fashion Illustration I), the refund due to you is $330* (less administration charge of $40.00).

 

Can I transfer to another course/another season/another date?

Transfer requests must be made in writing to cep@lasalle.edu.sg at least 10 working days before the course commencement date. A $40.00 administration charge is payable for each transfer. No transfer is allowed once a course has started.

If I miss a class due to work, will there be a make-up class?

No make-up classes are offered for courses under the Continuing Education Programme.
