Fees and Class Size
Membership in the Sephardic Community Center is a prerequisite for participation in almost every program. Certain programs, classes and events are open to non-members at a differential fee.

Cultural and informal education programs are offered throughout the year. Specialized activities such as Pre-school, Day Camp, educational courses, special children’s programs, concerts, etc. require additional fees. Members may be expected to bring additional materials to some classes.

In order to provide the fullest benefit to members, it is necessary to limit the size of certain groups. Registration will close when the maximum is reached. Additional groups will be formed if there are sufficient requests and if space allows.

In the event that registration requires 2 groups, groupings will be made by staff, taking into consideration the order of registration, requests and make-up of the group. The ultimate decision will be made by staff. There is no refund if there is a withdraws based on dissatisfaction with the group make-up. In the event that there is misrepresentation of age and grade, the SCC reserves the right to remove such individuals from the group and no refund will be made.

Membership Cancellation
The Sephardic Community Center reserves the right to revoke and/or suspend membership privileges at any time due to inappropriate or destructive behavior. Membership in the SCC is a privilege not to be misused. There will be no refunds made for revoked or suspended memberships.

Refund Policy
If a participant withdraws from a class or activity before the semester has started, a $25 administrative fee will be charged. The remainder will be refunded.

If one withdraws during the first to weeks of classes, in addition tot he $25 administrative fee, 25% of the class fee will be withheld from refund.

Out Pre-school programs, Culinary School, and Summer Day Camp have separate refund policies.

Low Cost Accident Medical Insurance
All members participating in Sephardic Community Center activities must participate in a Special Group Insurance Plan, regardless of age or sex. The rate is $20 per membership year. The coverage is in effect for all injuries caused by accident while in activities sponsored or supervised by the SCC. The benefits payable under the policy are payable in addition to any other insurance carried by the individual. The basic policy is subject to $200 deductible applying to each claim and a maximum reimbursement of $25,000. Certain sports activities are excluded from coverage, e.g., tackle football, ice hockey and snow skiing.

The policy does not pay for items or personal property such as special shoes, corsets, purchase of crutches, or items of similar nature, even if prescribed.
