Terms of Registration

If you are unable to attend a workshop for any reason, please notify the Oklahoma Arts Institute immediately so that your place may be filled by an applicant from the waiting list.

EDUCATORS RECEIVING SCHOLARSHIPS: if you do not notify us of your cancellation or cancel fewer than 72 hours before the start of your workshop without a doctor’s note or other evidence of an emergency, you will not be eligible for an OFAI scholarship in the future. Additionally, scholarship recipients who cancel after enrolling in a workshop two years in a row will not be eligible for a scholarship in the future.

ALL OTHER PARTICIPANTS: if you cancel more than 14 days before the first day of the workshop, your tuition, less the $30 registration fee, will be refunded. If cancellation notice is received after the 14 day deadline, and the workshop place cannot be filled, participants will forfeit the $100 deposit and the $30 registration fee. If you cancel within 72 hours of the beginning of your workshop, you will forfeit the entire cost of your workshop. In the instance that the Oklahoma Arts Institute is forced to cancel a class, the full deposit including the $30 registration fee will be refunded. The Oklahoma Arts Institute reserves the right to substitute faculty members. In all such cases, an attempt will be made to inform participants of a faculty change as time constraints will allow.

Participants agree and understand that, unless the Oklahoma Arts Institute is otherwise instructed in writing, registration constitutes a release for any photographs taken of participants at the Oklahoma Fall Arts Institute. Participants also understand that their written comments may be used for public relations for the program.

With online registration, participants hereby waive any and all claims for the participant and the participant’s heirs and personal representatives against the Oklahoma Arts Institute and any of their agents, servants or employees for injury, illness, or loss of personal property, by theft or otherwise, which may result from participation in such workshop.

The Oklahoma Arts Institute reserves the right to refuse registration at their sole discretion.
