PARTIAL REFUND: The
enrolled student who requests cancellation two weeks
before the scheduled class begins will receive a
full refund minus 15% only if the school is able to fill the cancelled spot with another student.
If a student enters training and withdraws
or discontinues prior to completion, the School
will not refund his initial enrollment deposit nor
monies spent for the potion of the course or courses
that the student has used. He will only be eligible
for monies calculated on the time remaining in the
course or courses that he has not attended. Any
portion of a week attended shall be considered as
a full week of attendance.
A student who withdraws or is dismissed
by the School after completing 75% of the instructions
will be charged the total cost of the course. Students
receiving failing grades at the end of the course
shall not be eligible for a refund. The School shall

of the date the student fails to enter or terminates
VETERAN REFUND POLICY - In the event a student who is receiving education
benefits from the Veterans' Administration withdraws
or is dismissed from the School, the Montana School
of Taxidermy will retain a $10.00 registration fee
plus the exact prorata portion of such tuition,
fees and other charges that the length of the completed
portion of the course bears to its total length.
The exact prorata will be determined on the total
number of instructional days in the course.
Students will be required to conduct
themselves in a courteous professional manner. All
questions or problems will be dealt with as quickly
as possible by the instructor. Students must be
in class on time each day. Any student attending
class in an intoxicated state or in possession of
such substances may be subject to dismissal. Any
student who willfully and maliciously damages or
destroys properties of the School, or of other students
may also be dismissed. Smoking is not allowed inside
the School facility.
Students will be judged on an individual
basis using evaluation of completed specimens at
the end of each session. Pass or fail of each
session will be based on mounts that are anatomically
accurate (balance and symmetry, naturalness of eyes,
nose, ears, painted areas), and "overall craftsmanship."
Upon completion of the course an oral
examination will be given to each student to determine
a final pass or fail grade. Once a student completes
all mandatory mounts and successfully passes the
oral examination he or she will receive a diploma
from the Montana School of Taxidermy.
