    The Michigan Art Center LLC reserves the right to make changes to our Registration Policy terms and conditions and Studio Guidelines at any time, with or without notice.
     
    Missed Classes, Holidays, and Inclement Weather – Missed classes must be made up within the current semester only. They must be pre-arranged (i.e., students cannot just drop into any class) and are limited to two per semester. If the MAC needs to shut down due to inclement weather, we will make every effort to notify students by phone, email, and Facebook, therefore it is imperative that we have your contact information.  

    Cancelled Classes – Classes are canceled when minimum enrollment numbers are not reached.  Students will be notified if classes are canceled and will be eligible for a full refund or class credit.

    Refund Policy for Dropped Classes and Workshops – Registration costs (minus a $25 processing fee) are fully refundable for all classes and workshops dropped prior to the first day of the new semester.  Classes or workshops dropped the first day of the new semester or after are eligible for a studio credit only.

    Drop-ins - We do not currently offer drop-in studio time and student's family members or friends are not allowed to attend class or open studio with students unless those friends or family members are registered students.

    Clay - Students will be provided with clay as needed, up to 50 lbs. for each person for each 11-week semester; however, unused clay does not carry over to the next semester, and under no circumstances does clay leave the studio to be worked on at home, or do pieces made at home come into the studio to be fired. Only clay purchased at the Michigan Art Center may be used in our studio. Clay stored in our studio must be on your personal shelf or in labeled 5-gallon buckets in the designated areas. 

    Wetware Cut-off Date - There is a wetware cut-off date 2 weeks prior to the end of each semester for students who are not planning on returning for the next semester. This means those students can not make new pieces during the last two weeks of class and will not be given any more clay. The first of those two weeks will be for trimming their pieces; the last week of class will be for glazing and cleaning off their shelves. Those students who are registered for the next semester are free to continue making wetware thru the end of the semester.

    Personal Belongings/Shelves - Students not registered for the next semester should remove all personal belongings from their shelves no later than the last day of class because unregistered student shelves are cleaned off during breaks. The Michigan Art Center is not responsible for personal belongings left in the studio. 

    Unfinished / Finished Pieces - at the end of each semester, all finished and/or unfinished pieces should be picked up within 14 days after the start of the new semester. The MAC is not responsible for any unclaimed pieces after the 14 days.
