2). There is no limit to the number of referees that each referrer may refer. However, tuition credits for the referrer may not exceed the total tuition paid by that family.
3). The tuition credits will apply to tuition only, not to any other fees.
4). To qualify for LinkedKey Referral Reward program, as a referrer you must be an existing LinkedKey student or parent. As a Referee, you must be a new LinkedKey student or parent.
2. Our semesters and Tuition
At LinkedKey, there are three semesters in each calendar year: Winter (January to June), Summer (July to August), and Fall (September to December). The payment of tuition can be: Email Transfer, Cheque, or Cash.
3. Trial Class
We encourage students to take One trial classes Only. If the student decides to continue with the course after trial class, the tuition will include the cost of the trial class. If the student decides not to continue, the trial class will be free of charge.
4. Multi-courses Discount Policy
Should one student decide to register for two or more courses within the same semester, there will be a 10% discount applying to the lower-cost courses.
For example: Jack enrols in *Math G9 (tuition fee $760), Debate L2 Sr (tuition fee $810), and Computer Fundamentals (tuition fee $720). In this situation, a 10% discount will be applied to *Math G9 and Computer Fundamentals.
5. Sibling Discount Policy
For families who have two or more children enrolled concurrently at LinkedKey, the lower-cost course will receive a 10% discount.
Note: Sibling Discount and Multi-courses Discount can NOT be used together.
6. Refund Policy
Within the first 5 classes after a course starts, if a student and parents decide to stop attending that course, please send an email to email@example.com. Your student account (for accessing homework and other course materials) will be closed and a refund will be arranged.Any discount associated with that course will no longer be applicable.
For example: Joe enrolled in two courses: course A (tuition fee $500) and course B (tuition fee $600). After finishing half of the classes, Joe decided to withdraw from course A. He would then be credited for 500/2-50=$200, because the $50 Multi-Courses Discount would no longer be applicable after course A got withdrawn.
7. Class Absence
At LinkedKey, we do NOT encourage students to take absence on any classes. If a class is missed, please try to find another class time with the same class content to make up.

Parents or student must send the Class Absence Request to firstname.lastname@example.org and the reason of absence must be included.
Absence and Credit during Online Course
As video recordings will be available for students to watch if they miss any classes, no absence credits will be issued. However, if students miss classes and the video recordings for the missing classes are NOT available, absence credits will be issued, and when that happens, a student will receive no more than 2 class credits for absent classes within any given semester. The credits are NOT refundable and can only be used towards future tuition payment at LinkedKey. Parents or students must send the Class Absence Request to email@example.com and the reason of absence must be included.
We strongly encourage students to attend the classes on time for better communication and learning experience.
