Class Attendance Policy: Attendance is extremely important to creating a safe, fun, and productive class environment. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend every class, as you will get the most out of your femex experience and create a stronger bond with your classmates. We understand that work, personal, or emergency situations may arise. Participants are expected to notify their facilitators and/or their class (via the class listserv) in case of absence. femex does not guarantee placement for anyone who will be missing more than 3 weeks of class.
Session Capacity: femex is an all-volunteer run organization. While we would love to accept all who apply, our current capacity allows us to run approximately 4 classes per session capped at 14 participants each. If we are unable to accommodate you this session, we encourage you to stay engaged by signing up for femex updates.
Waitlist Policy: femex strives to place the most diverse candidates in each class which helps to create the best possible experience for the participants. We are currently able to place a limited number of applicants on a waitlist. If you are placed on the waitlist you will be notified. If participants drop out during the first two weeks of class, we will evaluate, on a case-by-case basis, which wait-listed candidates can best fill the spot. If you are selected to join a class, we will notify you as soon as possible.
First 3 Weeks of Class: The first 3 weeks of class form the foundation for everything that you will do throughout the 15 weeks. If you will be missing more than 1 of the first 3 weeks of class, we cannot guarantee placement.
Repeat Participation: femex does not have the capacity to allow alums to participate in the class a second time. We are working to build our programming for past participants and we thank all our femexies for understanding.
