Students may request in writing to be switched into a different class until the Monday that starts the second week of term, provided space is available. No class changes will be granted after this deadline.
Students are allowed a maximum of two make-up classes outside of any built-in make-up classes noted on our website for university or federal holidays.*
These two make-up classes (due to personal, individual absences) consist of sitting in on a class of the same level throughout the week of the missed class (with the exclusion of Saturday classes). These classes must be in the same week so that you may sit in on the lesson plan you would otherwise miss.**
In order to schedule a make-up class, please send an email.
*In case of emergencies and other unforeseen circumstances that would warrant missing more than two classes, please contact Tanja Schmitz.
**Given that sickness cannot be foreseen, Saturday students are allowed to make up in the following week.
to email@example.com with firstname.lastname@example.org in CC at your earliest convenience. Please await an approval from either address.
RESCHEDULING AND EXTERNAL CIRCUMSTANCES:
Teachers reserve the right to reschedule certain class sessions in the case of emergency or provided that the majority of the class can agree upon a make-up date. Teachers will also dictate make-up class dates in the case of storms or other class cancelations.
Please read our complete Schedule Flexibility clause (please scroll to the end of the page) on our website.
COURSE CANCELLATION AND REFUND
If we do not receive a written cancellation or refund request by the cancellation/refund deadline the entire amount becomes non-refundable. We cannot prorate classes or transfer unused class time to another semester. We may credit a payment to a future term in exceptional circumstances determined by Deutsches Haus at NYU's discretion.
*Cancellation by Students
There is a non-refundable registration fee of $80. Refunds will include tuition minus the non-refundable $80 registration fee. Refunds will be issued to all students who cancel in writing to email@example.com by 5pm on the date indicated on the registration confirmation email sent to you.
*Cancellation by Deutsches Haus
All courses require a minimum of 5 enrolled students and are subject to cancellation otherwise. In the event that Deutsches Haus cancels a course, all students will be notified before the first day of classes and given the option to switch to a different course, provided space is available. If we are unable to place you in an alternate course, all payments will be refunded in full.
CONDUCT IN CLASSES
Students enrolled in courses are expected to demonstrate appropriate professional and personal behavior in the classroom, on campus, on-site visits, and off-site visits. They are expected to practice civility and respect in their interactions with others in their courses, inclusive of instructors; to abide by the principles of academic integrity; and to refrain from conducting themselves in ways that compromise the reputation, academic processes, or regular operations of Deutsches Haus and New York University.
Deutsches Haus at NYU reserves the right to refuse enrollment and to demand withdrawal from a course from any student who engages in conduct deemed by Deutsches Haus at NYU, in its sole discretion, as interfering with the learning experience or safety of any person in the community.
Students are not permitted to take an audio or video recording of language classes of Deutsches Haus at NYU.
