Range University limits our class sizes to provide an unparalleled and individualized experience for each of our students. To do this we require prepayment and preregistration for all training classes and courses.

In order to provide our classes, we must commit resources, assign instructors, arrange classroom/range availability and incur other costs associated with the class. These commitments are not reduced when fewer students attend. Additionally, we many times do not have space for everyone that may want to participate in a scheduled session and therefore must turn away students who wish to sign up.

The weather may also be a factor uncontrollable by Range University and the session may need to be canceled or rescheduled.

You acknowledge and agree that in the event you are unable to attend the scheduled session a refund will only be given when notice is provided of your need to cancel two weeks prior to the scheduled session. This may allow others to attend in your place.

In the event, you are unable to attend the session and unless notice is provided you will be able to reschedule to attend another scheduled session, but no refunds can be provided.

Individuals that do not show up for the scheduled class and do not provide notice prior to the class, agree to forfeit their fees and ability to reschedule.

If the event is canceled, we will transfer your tickets to an event of similar price.  Contact us if you have any issues with rescheduling your event. your understanding and the reason behind this policy.

By registering and paying for a session means that you fully understand and accept Range University’s refund policy.
