When signed, dated, and returned, the Participating in God’s Power Payment Plan Form constitutes a contract between you and the School of the Spirit Ministry (SotS) regarding payment of the net tuition fee.

If for any reason you need to withdraw from the program after we have received your tuition deposit, please notify us as soon as possible both verbally and in writing. If you formally withdraw from the program you will receive a refund based on your net tuition, the payment(s) we have already received, and the number of residencies attended. We will consider a residency attended if written notification of withdrawal is not received at least two weeks prior to the residency. If we have not received sufficient payment(s) to cover the residencies attended, we may bill you for the amount owed.

Other than for formal withdrawal, no refund or credit is given for unattended residential days or partial days or for missed meals. As different residencies have different start days and times, please familiarize yourself with the schedule of retreats.

A revised Payment Plan Form can be submitted at any time based on conversation and agreement between you and SotS.
