Academic and Financial Policies
GiftedandTalented.com courses are both engaging and rigorous. Our courseware requires focused effort for success. Each course has established expectations concerning communication with Tutors, when applicable, and rates of progress in the course to ensure successful completion of the course. Specific course policies and academic expectations can be reviewed in the GiftedandTalented.com Learning Center.
GiftedandTalented.com offers courses at many different academic levels. It is important that Students are enrolled in courses with an appropriate level of academic challenge for their performance level. While GiftedandTalented.com Tutors are trained to work with Students and give them the additional support they need, if we feel that a Student is not benefiting from his or her participation in a particular GiftedandTalented.com course, we will recommend an alternate course. If an alternate course is not available or accepted, we reserve the right to terminate the Student's enrollment.

Course Completion Certificates for Tutor Supported Courses
Course completion certificates are a great way to demonstrate academic knowledge of a particular course and grade level. We provide completion certificates at the end of all Tutor Supported Courses, and upon completion of a grade level for Tutor Supported Courses that contain multiple grade levels. Certificates are delivered in hardcopy via the US Postal Service as well as electronically via email. A certificate can only be requested once a course, or grade level, has been completed and approved by GiftedandTalented.com.
GiftedandTalented.com's Premium Services are billed on a quarterly basis (every 3 months). Quarterly tuition payments cover a three-month instructional period. If a Student finishes a course mid-quarter, the Student may continue in a new course at no additional tuition charge for the remainder of that quarter. Any applicable shipping and handling fees will be charged when the new course begins. Students who have not completed a course by the end of a quarter must pay the tuition for Premium Services for an additional quarter if they wish to continue taking the course until completion. Postponements and/or partial payments are not available.
Shipping and Handling Fee
Shipping and handling fees are charged every time a Student enrolls in a new course for which new materials must be shipped.
