General Terms & Conditions:


Registrations are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. If classes are full, you may register to be placed on the waiting list. This does not guarantee placement in the course, but if an opening arises, the waiting list registrants will be contacted to join the course in order of registration.  The Online Program is available for students who are enrolled with WISDOM. However, once Albertan WISDOM students have had first opportunity to register in the courses, WISDOM opens registrations up to non-WISDOM, out-of-Province students. Non-WISDOM in-Province students are not eligible to register for online classes. If a family leaves WISDOM mid-year, they are also by default removing themselves from any online class(es).


Payment for all online courses is due before the third week of the course begins. For those who choose to take fees from their funding, this will be applied automatically at that time. All out-of-pocket payees will receive an invoice requiring immediate payment.

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Payment for all online courses is due by the third week of the course. For those who choose to take fees from available funding, this will be applied automatically at that time, provided there is funding available. All out-of-pocket payees will receive an invoice requiring immediate payment.

Students have the option to try up to 2 weeks of official classes and cancel at no penalty. After that point, students who cancel forfeit the course fee.

If a student misses 5 or more discussion classes/term or 10 or more language classes/term, then he or she will not be regarded as having taken the course. No evaluation will be submitted to the parent by the tutor.

Event Cancellation

WISDOM reserves the right to cancel any course or workshop because of low registration or events beyond WISDOM's control. In the unlikely event of cancellation, registrants will be notified and offered the option to switch to a different course or receive a full refund.

Tutors or workshop presenters

WISDOM reserves the right to substitute tutors or presenters in the unlikely event that the tutors or workshop presenters listed cannot conduct the program. Substitution of tutor or presenter is not a cause for refund.

Certificate of Completion

WISDOM provides eligible students of the online classes with a certificate of completion upon request. Eligibility is based upon attendance record.

Privacy of Registrants

In signing up for a WISDOM Online Program class, WISDOM requires a certain amount of personal data. Your privacy is very important to us. WISDOM’s Privacy Policy (through our association, The Gilbertine Institute [GI]) complies with applicable Canadian and Alberta legislation with respect to the collection and protection of personal and private information. WISDOM also strives to protect the privacy of those attending and sharing in our classes and workshops. Therefore, to be clear, WISDOM does not grant permission for electronic copies of any sessions (classes or workshops) to be made by a student or parent, for any reason, nor does WISDOM authorize any form of copying and sharing of class or workshop sessions without the express written permission from the WISDOM office authorized personnel. For the purpose of aiding parents and students, online courses may be recorded by WISDOM and shared with the class participants. This enables a student to occasionally miss a class and still stay up to date with the course.

If you are interested in learning more about how your personal data is used, please contact WISDOM.
