  58. Eighth Key: Clear Operational Guidelines Disrupting the Learning Experience: The

    overall goal is to create classroom environments that maximize the learning for all students. If, in the opinion of OLLI at ASU staff and administration, that the instructor, activity leader, class members, or any allied participant interferes with the goals of the learning community, or creates a safety concern, he or she will be asked to leave the class or activity and ultimately may not be able to continue his or her affiliation with OLLI at ASU. Refund Policy: Membership fees are nonrefundable. Class/series fees are nonrefundable, except in the event a class/series is cancelled. In this case, the applicable class fee will be refunded at the close of the semester. Please note that refunds will not be available in instances of double-booking (selecting classes that take place simultaneously). If you have any questions, please call our office at 602.543.6440.
