These are the terms and conditions that govern the relations between the Accademia di Italiano and the students who enroll in its courses.
TOTAL COST OF THE COURSES
The total cost of the course is composed of the following items:
You can enroll directly at the school, online or by downloading the registration form and emailing a scanned copy of the completed form to the Accademia di Italiano.
If registration is performed online or by email, be sure to clearly indicate the chosen method of payment.
If applying for a student visa, Italian law requires that study represent the primary activity during the stay in Italy. For this reason, the courses must commit the students to a minimum of 4 h/day (20h/week or 80h/month) of study, every day from Monday to Friday. Along with other considerations, such as demonstrating legal ownership and the solidity of bank accounts, the advance payment of the course forms an integral part of the evaluation of the financial capabilities of the student by the designated Italian consular authorities for the issuance of visas. For this reason, the Accademia di Italiano issues the scholastic documents of enrollment only after having received the payment for the entire cost of the course.
For security purposes, the original documents are delivered directly to the student or to a person designated by him or her, or are sent directly by express air courier to his or her address in the country of origin. The shipping costs are at the expense of the student.
Payment for the courses must always be performed in advance, on penalty of annulling the enrollment. The payment must be net of any eventual bank charges or fees. The Accademia di Italiano reserves the right to request the reimbursement of any such fees or charges.

DURATION OF THE LESSONS
The duration of lessons is 45 minutes (an academic hour) or multiples of 45 minutes.
Students are required to attend lessons with regularity, respecting the scheduled times and the rules of the school.
Students enrolled in long-term courses (from 16 to 48 weeks) can be absent for a maximum of 2 weeks. These 2 weeks may be made up without additional cost by giving at least two weeks' notice. All courses include an interruption of 2 weeks for Christmas and one week in August.

The Accademia di Italiano is committed to doing all it can to place students in the courses and at the times that the students prefer. Nevertheless, it cannot give a guarantee without having first examined the result of the initial level test.
If the minimum number of 4 students to form a class is not met, the Accademia di Italiano may offer the option of taking another course of equal value.

In the occasion of public and religious holidays, the school is closed. Should this cause damage to a student, the Accademia di Italiano is committed to offering just compensation.
The Accademia di Italiano is not to be held legally responsible to students for theft or loss of personal effects which may occur on its premises.

The student authorizes the Accademia di Italiano to use their personal information in compliance with the Law 196/2003, which states that these may be kept in an archive. In addition, the student authorizes the Accademia di Italiano to periodically send information and promotional materials about the school and on the services offered.
