7. NPA Course Deferment, Retake, and Retake Fees Policies Effective from March 2023
7.0 As of March 2023, the Natural Perfume Academy will no longer allow students to retake or defer their course more than one time. This is one time in addition to the course for which they originally began, after which the student is required to reapply and pay the applicable “retake” course fees.
7.1 Deferment: If at any time during the student’s 9-month course, they desire to move to a future course because of unforeseen circumstances which prevent them from finishing their original course can request to be deferred to a future course of their choice.
7.2 Retake: Students who fail to make good progress and do not finish the coursework or fail to submit their final submissions to their instructor by the deadline of their course will be moved by the administration to retake a future course.
7.3 Retake Fees: Retake fees are applicable if a student has been either deferred once and does not finish the deferment course, or has retaken the course after a first failed attempt and does not complete the retake course, and now wishes to access the third attempt.
7.4 Any student submitting coursework or final perfume submissions after the course deadline of their original course will not receive a diploma and will be required to retake a future course and finish all course requirements by the deadline in their retake course in order to receive their diploma.
7.5 We are not unsympathetic to events beyond the student’s control, and in those very rare cases, special allowances for illnesses or injuries may be implemented at the discretion of the administration and staff.
8. CPD Certified NPA Natural Perfumery Diploma Course
Upon satisfactory completion of the CPD Certified NPA Natural Perfumery course an official diploma of graduation will be awarded to the student.
