  • The make-up must be scheduled through the IGN office.  You must sign up in advance to attend a makeup class. There will be a max number of students allowed.  Check with the front desk for available dates and times.
  • If you sign up for a make up and then are unable to attend, please call the office to let us know.

Our tutition is based on 4 classes each month (for once/week classes). Some months may have 5 classes and other months 3, but over the course of the year, all classes will average out to 4 classes each month.
