The 2000 USD or € confirmation fee is non-refundable. The rest of tuition fees may be refunded if the student notifies his/her withdrawal before the start of the course.

The students with unresolved payments to Fab Academy administration or to the local Fab Lab (tuition or material fees) or pending of returning materials belonging to specific Fab Lab (access cards, library books, software licenses or other) will not receive the final Diploma or any official certificate.
