If you opt for a payment plan, you will be responsible for paying the remaining invoices unless you obtain a refund through our Do The Work Refund Policy. By signing up for our payment plan, you agree to pay the entire balance owing of your payment plan.

8. Breaking Payment Plans + Discontinued Payments. In the event that your agreed-upon payment plan is broken, our team will permit a three-month grace period and will actively work with you to get payments back on track. However, after three months of delinquent payments, you will be charged a 10% fee of the monthly payment due for every month of missed payments after that, for up to one year. The 10% late fee will only commence after your initial three-month grace period.
For example: If you have paid the first three months but then pause your payment plan for the fourth month and fail to get back on track after three months, you will owe 10% for EACH month (up to one year) that your account is inactive. You will have to pay this amount before you can re-access your account.

Please note, course extensions are non-refundable and non-transferable.
10. Course Updates + Bonuses. Our team actively updates our programs to ensure the majority of students’ biggest roadblocks are anticipated, minimized, and addressed. Students are automatically granted access to any updates within the BGA core curriculum and the BGA Bonus Bag during their 12 months of access.
