We encourage you sign up as early as possible to ensure a minimum enrollment level is reached two weeks
prior to the starting date. Unless otherwise noted, attendees are responsible for their own admission fees
for museum visits or tours. Therefore, please have your "tickets in hand" at the start of the class.
WICE reserves the right to change the time, date or place of a program or to cancel if the event is
under-enrolled, or for other valid reasons. We will notify registrants of any changes and, in the case of
cancellations by WICE, issue vouchers or refunds. WICE tries to reschedule cancelled programs, giving
priority to those who originally signed up.
Last-Minute Sign-UpsUnless otherwise indicated, you may enroll in a program at the last minute if there is space available. You
must call first, and plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early so you can be registered. WICE programs are limited
to a specific number of participants, especially for museum visits and walking tours. To avoid being turned
away, please call in advance.
Waiting ListIf the program is over-subscribed, you will be notified and placed on the waiting list. Full refunds or
vouchers are provided to those on the list who do not ultimately get into the program.
Policy on StrikesWICE stays open and holds classes during transportation strikes and political protests, except in rare
instances when we judge the safety of our volunteers and participants to be in jeopardy. Unless you are
otherwise notified, please assume that a given program is going ahead as scheduled. Call WICE to confirm
if you are in doubt.
