Enrollment Agreement Terms & Conditions (US)


Each student who wishes to enroll in an on-campus or online program delivered by Point Blank Music School in Los Angeles, California must sign an Enrollment Agreement which is provided at the time of enrollment. If you are under 18 years old you will need the permission of your parent/guardian to execute the Enrollment Agreement. The following Program Terms, Conditions, and Understandings appear as Section E of the Enrollment Agreement and apply only to students enrolled in on-campus or online programs delivered by Point Blank Music School in Los Angeles, California:



Please see the other sections of [the Enrollment Agreement] for payment details. If any payment is late (whether an installment or otherwise), Point Blank reserves the right to cancel the relevant program(s) outright or suspend your right to attend until such payment(s) is/are received. Repeated late payments may result in withdrawal from the program.


All on-campus instruction is provided at 1035 S. La Brea Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90019 except in the case of occasional field trip visits offsite to places of interest within the County of Los Angeles, for which students will either be provided transportation or given specific addresses for during the program.


Every Point Blank student enrolled in an on-campus program of not less than three months in duration shall be given access to reasonably-sufficient practice time at Point Blank’s facility during each term of instruction. No reservations will be accepted more than one week before the requested session. Please note that at peak times, some students may be subject to a waiting list. Point Blank will use reasonable endeavors to honor all bookings, but reserves the right to cancel booked studio time for any reason at any time. In any such case, Point Blank will attempt to notify the relevant student(s) and studio time cancelled by Point Blank (without any student-related cause) will be re-booked at a mutually convenient time. Complete studio booking policies and procedures are published within the Catalog.


a. Each student is responsible for ensuring that no Point Blank equipment or property is damaged, lost or stolen as a direct or indirect result of their own action or failure to act appropriately.

b. With prior permission of Point Blank in each case, a student may bring one guest who is a creative collaborator onto Point Blank premises. The student shall ensure the guest observes all Point Blank terms and rules, including those relating to health, safety, and security.

c. The student will be solely responsible at all times for the actions and omissions of the student’s guest brought onto Point Blank premises.

d. In the event that any Point Blank equipment or property is damaged, lost, or stolen as a direct or indirect result of negligent action or failure to act appropriately by any student or guest, the student agrees to pay all reasonable costs in full (including without limitation for replacement or reparation).

e. For the avoidance of doubt, no Point Blank property may be removed from the premises without the express prior consent of Point Blank in each case.

f. Point Blank shall not be responsible for any damage to, or loss or theft of, any student’s or guest's personal belongings.


a. Absence from a scheduled class session or sessions will not automatically give rise to any right of re-scheduling or refund.

b. If you are unable to attend a scheduled class session for any reason, please let us know as far as possible in advance and if practicable we will use reasonable endeavors to provide to you the missed information.

c. Cancellation terms are detailed elsewhere in this Agreement. Please note that Point Blank cannot accept cancellation of any specific course(s) within a larger program, but only of a full program itself.


Point Blank provides its services in an academic setting and therefore students must accept the authority of the Point Blank instructors and other members of Point Blank staff to take reasonable disciplinary action to safeguard and promote students’ welfare or otherwise as appropriate and/or necessary. For the avoidance of doubt, Point Blank will not tolerate any form of discrimination, bullying, harassment, victimization, or discrimination. For the avoidance of doubt, please note that Point Blank has a zero-tolerance policy towards illegal drugs. Point Blank reserves the right to suspend or expel any student deemed (by Point Blank in its sole discretion) to be unsuitable as a result of the student (or, where relevant, the student’s guest) acting or behaving unsociably, offensively, or otherwise unacceptably through conduct, attitude, or demeanor. In such cases, suspension or expulsion shall not automatically give rise to a right to refund, and full tuition and fees up to the date of withdrawal will remain payable, as applicable.


Please inform us of any special physical or medical requirements you may have with as much notice as possible, in order for us to try to meet them as far as practicable. Point Blank’s Request for Accommodation form is recommended for this purpose and may be obtained by contacting the Chief Academic Officer.

The State of California established the Student Tuition Recovery Fund (STRF) to relieve or mitigate economic loss suffered by a student in an educational program at a qualifying institution, who is or was a California resident while enrolled, or was enrolled in a residency program, if the student enrolled in the institution, prepaid tuition, and suffered an economic loss. Unless relieved of the obligation to do so, you must pay the state-imposed assessment for the STRF, or it must be paid on your behalf, if you are a student in an educational program, who is a California resident, or are enrolled in a residency program, and prepay all or part of your tuition. You are not eligible for protection from the STRF and you are not required to pay the STRF assessment, if you are not a California resident, or are not enrolled in a residency program.


Point Blank’s liability to you hereunder shall be limited to the total amount you have actually paid to Point Blank for the applicable program. Except as set out herein, Point Blank shall under no circumstances be liable to you, whether in contract, tort, or otherwise, for any indirect or consequential loss arising hereunder or in connection with the program provided by Point Blank. Nothing in this Agreement shall operate to limit or exclude liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence. For the avoidance of doubt, Point Blank shall not be liable for any loss or termination hereunder resulting from or arising in connection with any student visa status or other reason related to immigration matters.

By signing this Agreement, the Student hereby consents to audiovisual recording of their person, image, likeness, and voice by Point Blank, and grants permission to Point Blank to use and distribute such recordings or still photographs for any promotional or educational purposes. The Student further consents to allowing such recordings to be edited, copied, exhibited, published, and distributed by Point Blank and waives the right to inspect or approve any usage.

If a court or any other competent authority finds that any provision of the Agreement (or part of any provision) is invalid, illegal, or unenforceable, that provision or part-provision shall, to the extent required, be deemed deleted, and the validity and enforceability of the other provisions of the Agreement shall not be affected.
