No, however the Academy has a contractual agreement that allows it to offer The Great Courses Plus ™ to its students. The Teaching Company and its The Great Courses Plus™ online streaming service may, of course, some day change or alter its terms of service or availability. We do not anticipate any such change, but if one were to occur affecting our students we would notify them as soon as we learn of it, and were such a change to affect the Greats Honors Program somehow, we would endeavor to minimize any impact, or, if the change dramatically affected the program, terminate the program and end the monthly tuition charges.
Class Changes and Program Cancellation: The Great Books Academy reserves the right to change, modify or cancel any or all courses and/or online classes, including but not limited to times, tutorials, mentor sessions, or online locations, at any time, if circumstances warrant (for example, low enrollment in a given class), in our sole discretion. In that event, any portion of tuition not already used would be refunded on a prorated basis of 1/12th per each month of enrollment remaining on the relevant portion of the program at the time of cancellation.
