After successfully registering for the course, you will receive an email that provides all the instructions you need to complete the required pre-assignments. If you do not receive an email within seven days of registering for a course, it is your responsibility to email aupairweekend@bhcc.mass.edu and ask for the pre-assignment instructions.

Registration Deadlines

The deadline for each course registration occurs one month prior to the course starting date. After the deadline passes, registration may be possible for up to ten days only if space is available, but a $50 late fee will be charged. After that, registration is closed. Please observe the deadline dates to make sure you have a spot reserved and to avoid the late fee.

Cancelation/Refund Policy

If you cannot attend the course you’ve registered for, we highly recommend that you switch to one of our many other weekend courses. Contact Tina Rychalsky, our Program Coordinator, at aupairweekend@bhcc.mass.edu to make arrangements. See “Changing Weekends” below.

In order to provide educational and enjoyable courses to au pairs at very affordable prices, we can only issue tuition refunds for cancellations requested within three weeks of the course starting date. Here’s how it works.

  • The registration fee is never refundable.
  • No refunds will be issued within three weeks of the course start date. NO EXCEPTIONS will be made, so please do not ask.
  • If you request a refund at least one month prior to the start date of the course, there is a $50 cancellation fee.
  • If you request a refund between three and four weeks prior to the start date of the course, the cancellation fee is $100.
  • You are not eligible for a refund simply because you fail to show up for class.
  • If a medical emergency prevents you from attending class, you must provide documentation from a doctor to reschedule for a later weekend or to receive any type of refund. If this situation applies, please contact aupairweekend@bhcc.mass.edu for assistance.
  • Refunds are processed back to the credit card used for registration. If the credit card number is no longer active, it is your responsibility to notify aupairweekend@bhcc.mass.edu at the time of cancellation.

All refund requests must be emailed to aupairweekend@bhcc.mass.edu with the following information:

  • Course name
  • Course dates
  • Reason for dropping
  • Telephone number where you can be reached
  • Host family's name and email address
  • Your permission to allow Au Pair Weekend to drop the course on your behalf

Changing Weekends

If you need to switch to a different weekend course date, due to a medical emergency, contact us to make this request. Please include which course and date you originally registered for, and the new course and date you would like. There is a $50 change fee if you make your request at least one month prior to both the original course and the new course start dates. If you make your request less than one month before the start dates, the change fee will be $100.
