New 'Sign-up Show-up' Policy Effective January 1st, 2020.

This policy targets students who are consistently signing up for Bootcamps and not attending them.

All students who sign up for a Bootcamp and do not show up without cancelling their tickets will be placed on a "no-show" list. There is a three-strike system that will be effective immediately. Once you receive your third strike, you will no longer be able to register for future bootcamps and our team will need to cancel your ticket immediately.

If you are unable to attend the Bootcamp you have signed up for, you must cancel your ticket by going back into Eventbrite and doing so at least 24-hours in advance to avoid getting on the no-show list.

We are putting this policy in place given the high demand for Bootcamps and long waiting lists of students who want to attend but are unable to do so due to a consistent number of no-shows.

Late Policy

The Bootcamp will begin no later than 12:10 PM. Kindly note once the session is in progress, registered attendees may not be admitted after 12:20 PM as the Bootcamp will be in progress. If you are running late, please email and we will try our best to accommodate you.
