This is a subscription based service and you will be paying ahead of time in the increments of 4 weeks or 12 weeks as you choose from our enrollment page. You will get a self service portal from Zoho subscriptions where you can see your subscription details and invoices for the charges.

Should you decide to leave our program, all you need to do is cancel the subscription from the self-service portal. We take customer satisfaction very seriously. We are always available at info@98thpercentile.com or billing@98thpercentile.com if you have any questions/concerns.

Attendance/Missed Classes Policy

While we take many precautions, time to time we may cancel classes. It may happen due to many reasons such as an emergency for the teacher, technological issues preventing logins, Power outages etc.

At the same time, a student may also miss a class for any reason.

If we cancel a class, we will either give a credit on the subscription or move the subscription renewal date at the prorated hourly rate for that class.

If the student misses a class, as a courtesy we make the recording of that class available. Since it is a manual process to record the class, there is a chance that the teacher may miss to hit the record button. In this scenario, we will offer a 30 mins catchup class on request only.

Catchup classes are to be scheduled for Friday evenings only and within 3 weeks of incident occurrence. We reserve the right to invite more students to that class if we choose to do so.

Vacation Policy

In general, you are paying ahead of time for the services provided. If you choose 12 weeks billing cycle with a discount, that means you know you are going to attend the classes during that period.

You can cancel and reenroll at any point of time, but we do not guarantee a free slot and we do not guarantee the same slot availability. In other words, we are holding a spot for you only if you are a paid customer.

We do understand, many times, students take extended vacations to go out of country and such. The biggest benefit of an Online program is that one can take classes from anywhere in the world. If that is not a possibility, as a courtesy we will hold your student’s spot and give a 1-week credit for any vacations 2 weeks or more.
