Registration Policies

Registration Policy

Candidates may register at any time prior to the beginning of the class, as long as empty seats are available. It is recommended candidates register as early as possible in order to receive shipped classroom materials in a timely manner and begin reviewing the material prior to class. Candidates must be at least 21 years of age at the time of enrollment and be able to show a valid picture ID proving age. Classroom study materials will be shipped to out-of-town candidates within 2 business days of registration, via a trackable method. It is the responsibility of the candidate to ensure shipments reach them safely once the package has been marked as delivered. Shipping and postage costs are included in tuition prices.

Cancellation Policy

Wine Academy of Las Vegas (WALV) reserves the right to cancel or change course dates and times. In the rare event this must occur, candidates will be notified of the new dates/times. If candidates are unable to attend the new times, a full refund will be issued to the candidate. If candidates cannot attend, they must contact WALV for a cancellation form and submit it to the school. Cancellation forms may be obtained by contacting the school.  

Refund Policy  

Themed Tasting Events: 

Due to the limited, one-time nature of these events, tickets are non-refundable. 

Online Students:

Students cancelling past the course registration deadline will be ineligible for a refund. Online students that are unable to sit for their scheduled exam will be charged an examination rescheduling fee. 

In-Person Students: 

A 50% refund will be issued to candidates if registration is cancelled 30 business days prior to the registration deadline of an in-person class. 

Students cancelling with less than 20 business days notice will be charged a rescheduling fee. 

Any refunds are less the price of course materials already shipped, and shipping and processing costs.
