Six months prior to the course, the second payment of $3,900 is required. The payment of the remaining balance is due four months prior to the course start date. The open balances will be charged to the credit card on file according to the payment schedule above unless notified otherwise.
If the participant chooses the payment option “Individual Payment Plan” the remaining balance will be divided into monthly payments with the final payment due 30 days prior to course start date. 3% of the total tuition will be charged as an administration fee.
A payment is considered complete when the payment is received by IDEA either by check, bank transfer, or credit card. Delayed payment or alterations to the agreed payment schedule will lead to the loss of the registered course seat and loss of the partial amount paid for the course seat.
Up to six months prior to the course, the course seat can be either transferred to another course or it can be cancelled. In the case of a course cancellation at any time the original deposit of $750 will be forfeited.
Between six and four months prior to the course, the course seat can be transferred to another course or person. Cancellation of the course is not possible. A $250 administrative fee will be charged for a transfer. In the case of a name transfer, any money paid will be transferred to the new participant and any balance due will be the responsibility of the new participant.
After 120 days prior to the course only a name transfer is possible. If IDEA is able to fill the course from a waiting list, the participant can transfer to another course. A name transfer can be made at any time prior to the course. Any money paid will be transferred to the new participant and any balance due will be the responsibility of the new participant. A $250 administrative fee will be charged.
All course or name transfers are subject to space availability. In the case of a course transfer the price of the newly selected course will be applied. A course transfer is possible only one time and is valid for the present or following calendar year. There is no guarantee from IDEA that the same previously booked course will be offered in the future. All cancellations or change requests must be communicated in writing.
IDEA is not responsible for expenses incurred for any cancellation or change penalties assessed e.g., but not limited to, by airlines or participant selected hotels as a result of cancellations. There is also no refund for arriving late or leaving early.
IDEA reserves the right to cancel or reschedule courses as appropriate with four (4) weeks advanced notification to participants. In such events, funds paid to IDEA may be refunded in full or transferred to a future course, at the discretion of IDEA. IDEA will not be responsible for any delay, interruption, or other failure to perform under these Terms and Conditions due to natural disasters, acts of God, wars, riots, terrorist activities, acts of third parties, fires, strikes, and governmental decrees, or acts beyond the reasonable control of IDEA making the event impossible to hold. In this case funds paid to IDEA would be held as a credit applicable to any course for one (1) year starting from the date of the cancellation. In no event is IDEA liable for any cancellation or change penalties assessed e.g., but not limited to, by airlines or participant selected hotel as a result of course date changes or cancellations by IDEA.
The hotel accommodations begin the night prior to the course start date and end with the check out on the next day after the course ends (e.g.: a 4 day course has 5 hotel nights). IDEA reserves the right to make hotel modifications as needed at their sole discretion.
Transportation between the San Francisco International Airport and the partner hotel is provided by the hotel. The hotel reserves the right to make shuttle modifications as needed at their sole discretion.
The shuttle between the partner hotel and the IDEA facility is provided by IDEA daily in the morning and evening. This transportation is only for participants who selected “Hotel” option. If the “No hotel” option is chosen, transportation becomes the responsibility of the participant.
The course fee includes breakfast, lunch and snacks on every course day, and two dinners*, a “Welcome” reception and “Networking” dinner on the first day and a “Celebration” dinner on the last day of the course. *A two-day course will have only one dinner, which is a “Celebration” dinner on the last day of the course.
