Non-Discrimination Policy

Alliance Française de Philadelphie does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, disability, gender, sexuality, and national or ethnic origin in the administration of its admissions, educational, or employment policies and programs.

Course Cancellations & Changes

To be eligible for a refund, the student must contact the Alliance Française before the first class. After the first class, only a credit for a next session will be issued (a $30 cancellation fee plus $30 per class is retained).  Credit is valid for one year starting from the date of withdrawal. No credit after the 3rd class

The Alliance Française de Philadelphie  reserves the right to cancel classes or immersion classes and change teachers if necessary without advanced notice. Courses are typically cancelled due to insufficient enrollment or unavailability of a teacher.  If your course is cancelled, you will be notified by telephone or email and given the option to transfer to another class, to receive a tuition credit, or to receive a full refund.

Make up classes

If a student exceptionally can't attend a class, it is possible to attend another class of the same level, on the same week. Student must notify the administration at or at 215 735 5283

If a teacher is unable to teach a class, student will be notified by e-mail or by phone. Every effort will be made to make up any lost class time during the current session. If the lost class(es) cannot be made up, a credit will be added to your account for the equivalent cost of the lost class time.


Pro-rated tuition is only offered if a student is going to miss 2 or more classes of a 10-week class and must be arranged at the time of registration. NO retroactive credits or refunds will be allowed for missed classes.

Disruptive Student 

Alliance Française de Philadelphie reserves the right to dismiss any student whose behavior is inappropriate or disruptive to the learning environment and to other students.

Unexpected Closure

AF may need to close unexpectedly, due to inclement weather or other circumstances. In such situations, you will be informed via email or telephone. Every effort will be made to make up any lost class time during the current session. If the lost class(es) cannot be made up, a credit will be added to your account for the equivalent cost of the lost class time.
