IDaC Policies and Procedures

Class Registration

Students can register for classes on line through the IDaC home page or by printing, completing, and faxing the  registration form to 954.762.5192. Registrations must be completed 48 hours prior to the start of classes. Late registrations are subject to a late payment fee of $50. Students are not permitted in a class if they have not been registered. Instructors are given a roster listing the students who have registered prior to the start of class.

Payment Policy

Payment for classes must be received at the time of registration. Late registrations are subject to a late payment fee of $50. Students will not be permitted in a class if they have not registered and paid for the class. The only exception is a company that has a prior arrangement with IDaC. If a student inadvertently sits through a class without registering or paying they WILL NOT receive a certificate. Late registrations will not be accepted after 15 (fifteen) days from the start of class. Paper checks will no longer be accepted. Acceptable payments are completed using our secure server and paying via credit card or electronic check. For assistance with payments please contact the front desk at 954.762.5164.

Course Cancellations

IDaC has the right to cancel a course at any time. Courses may be cancelled due to low enrollment. If a course is canceled IDaC will contact the student 48 hours prior to the scheduled start of the class via telephone and/or email. Therefore it is important that students insure their contact information is up to date. The IDaC Registration Coordinator will fully refund students for courses canceled by the Institute.

Course Schedule Changes

Periodically IDaC must reschedule a course due to a conflict with an instructor’s schedule, classroom space or other reasons. If a course is rescheduled IDaC will contact the student as soon as possible via telephone and/or email. Again, it is important that students insure their contact information is up to date. If a course is rescheduled a student has two options: (1) they may choose to take the course at the rescheduled time, or (2) they may receive a full refund for the course. The student must inform IDaC of their decision.

Hurricane or Tropical Storm Cancellations

In the instance of a Hurricane or Tropical Storm, IDaC will follow the FAU policy of campus closures. Information regarding closures will be available on the FAU homepage at  or by phone: Broward campuses (Davie and Fort Lauderdale) 954.236.1800; Boca Raton campus 561.297.2020; Jupiter campus 561.799.8020. IDaC may not always have the opportunity to get in contact with students in this instance. Please be vigilant of the South Florida weather forecasts during hurricane season. If a course must be rescheduled due to inclement weather students will have the opportunity to choose option 1 or 2 under the above title  Course Schedule Changes. Please also be aware that because one campus is closed another may not be. When checking the website or hotlines please make note of the specific campus closures.


Parking on all FAU campuses is restricted. IDaC provides a parking pass as long as class registration has occurred at least a week prior to the start of the class. IDaC will mail out parking passes the week prior to the start of classes for those who have registered in advance. Otherwise your options are: (1) make arrangements to stop by the IDaC offices in Fort Lauderdale to pick up the hang tag prior to the beginning of class, or (2) make your own arrangements for parking on campus. Please note that the FAU Office of Traffic and Parking will ticket unauthorized vehicles and IDaC will be unable to assist with parking citations. For more information on the rules and regulations for parking on campus please refer to the Office of Traffic and  Parking website.


A cancellation fee of $15 or 10% of $200 or more will be charged to the student if the student cancels a class prior to 5 business days before the start of class. If a student cancels a class within 4 business days prior to the start of class, the student will be refunded 50% of the cost of the class. If a student does not show up to class and did not cancel ahead of time they relinquish their right to a refund. However, a student may at any time choose to register for the same class at another time without penalty. Students who do not show up for class may receive a “credit” with IDaC for up to one year but must register within 30 (thirty) days of the start of the original class.

Class Retakes at No Charge

Students are welcome to retake a class they have already taken at no charge. Due to the possibility of classes being canceled or rescheduled, students must register for the class. For those wishing to retake a class, please contact IDaC at 954.762.5164 to reserve a space. Students WILL NOT receive a new certificate when they choose to retake a class at no charge.


Certificates will be distributed the last day of class. If for some reason a certificate is not available on the last day of class, it will be mailed via the post office or the student may come by the IDaC office in Fort Lauderdale to pick it up. For those planning to stop by the IDaC office please contact the Program Assistant at 954.762.5164 to make arrangements. Certificates will not be distributed to students who have not registered or paid for courses. Duplicate certificates may be obtained for a $5 fee.

Disruptive Students

Disruptive student behavior affects all students in the classroom including the instructor. The instructor has the right to dismiss a student that is being disruptive in class at any time, without refund.

Cell Phones and Pagers

All electronic communication devices are to be disabled while class is in session. Those students deemed as repeat offenders by the instructor will be asked to leave.

Student Responsibility

IDaC is dedicated to the success of the students, it is expected that students will conduct themselves in a mature manner and take responsibility for their actions. It is the student’s responsibility to give the IDaC the correct information regarding name, address, phone number(s), email address(es), etc. It is also expected that students ensure that they are registered for classes and payment has been received. Certificates WILL NOT be issued to students who have not registered and/or paid for courses. It is also expected that if for some reason students do not receive a certificate for the course they have taken that they contact IDaC in a timely manner to resolve the issue.
