CANCELLATION POLICY

Design the Future is a competitive program with a limited number of available spots. Because we accept students on a rolling basis, enrollment into the program followed by later cancellation means that another student is unable to participate. If for some reason you find you are unable to attend, please notify us as soon as possible so we can offer your spot to another student.
