Pericles Account - Terms and Conditions

FINANCIAL AND REFUND POLICIES

1. Upon application the student must pay a 9000 rouble Deposit, which will be credited toward the student’s course cost. This Deposit is NOT REFUNDABLE unless a student is denied a place in the course. No place will be reserved in a course until the Deposit is paid.

2. All remaining tuition payments must be made in cash roubles or via bank transfer prior to the first day of the course unless Financial Aid has been awarded or unless otherwise agreed upon by Pericles management. Tuition left unpaid by the beginning of a course may result in your losing your place in the group.

3. An early enrolment discount of 3000 rubles is available on most courses for advanced registrations made before the deadlines set each semester. The early enrolment discount is revoked if the course is not fully paid by the end of the first week of course or such shorter period as may be indicated for condensed courses.

4. A late payment penalty of 2000 rubles will be applied to all courses that are not paid in full by the end of the first half of the course or the first month of the course, whichever is earlier. An additional 2000 ruble late fee will be charged for each additional month or partial month of late payment thereafter.

5. No books and materials will be given out until tuition for a course is fully paid. Course materials are included in the cost of the courses for Test Preparation Courses and non-LL.M. courses. Courses may use library materials, for which a security deposit is required. This security deposit is separate from tuition payments and is refundable when materials are returned on time and in good condition.

6. For courses meeting 20 hours or more, students withdrawing by notifying the Registrar in writing at or before the end of the first six hours of the course, may receive a full refund of their fees, excluding the non-refundable Deposit. For courses shorter than 20 hours, no refund will be made after the end of the first class session.

7. Students withdrawing later than the times specified in paragraphs 6 will not receive a refund. Students failing to attend classes without formally withdrawing will not receive a refund. Students failing to attend classes without formally notifying the Registrar of a wish to transfer to another course will not be able to preserve their deposit.

8. At the discretion of the Dean, it may be possible to transfer a course Deposit for a course not taken to a later schedule of the same course, or to another course at a more appropriate academic level.

9. If Pericles is paid directly by someone other than the student or has reason to believe that someone other than the student has paid for the student's tuition, Pericles reserves the right to make refunds directly to the paying person or company, or, alternatively, to contact the person or company and inform them that the course has been dropped and a refund made.

10. Students in Good Standing are allowed free use of the Pericles library upon payment of a refundable book/video security deposit. The book/video security deposits will be forfeited for overdue or damaged books or materials, in accordance with the library policy posted near the reception desk.

11. Test Preparation courses may be repeated by Students in Good Standing, once, free of charge, for up to one year from the date of the course in which the student originally enrolled. Repeating students should enroll in advance to reserve a seat. Test Preparation students may also drop in to repeat classes unofficially, if space is available, without reserving a seat and without using up their one free repeat. (Unofficial repeaters will not have their essays reviewed by the course professors.) Repeat classes will be denied, however, to students with overdue library books or videos, who have violated Pericles' Academic Policies, or who are otherwise not in Good Standing.

12. Students in Good Standing who wish to repeat a test preparation course in a group that begins after one year from the start date of their original enrolment may do so upon payment of a new course deposit. No other course charges will be made.

13. A student in “Good Standing” is defined as a student who is up to date on any fees or tuition payments due to Pericles, who is not in violation of Pericles' Academic Policies, and who is not overdue on returning library books or videos.

ACADEMIC POLICIES

Serious violations may result in removal from a class, prevention from completing a course or taking other courses with no refund given.

2. Students are expected to comply with the Honor Code when taking any course that leads to a grade or degree. The Honor Code means that all students are expected to complete their course work independently of each other and without unauthorized help; to confess to their own violations of the Honor Code; and to report conduct of any other student that appears to be in violation of the Honor Code. Violations of the Honor Code are more specifically set forth in the Code itself.

Students must not take or intentionally damage property of other students, the faculty, staff or school; must not be physically or verbally abusive to other students, faculty or staff; must not disrupt classes; and must not be adversely under the influence of drugs or alcohol while on school property.

4. Students who damage or lose, whether intentionally or accidentally, the property of other students, faculty, staff or the school, or who injure other students, faculty or staff, are expected to promptly and adequately compensate the harmed party.

5.
