|Q: Is there an age requirement to attend Oaksterdam University?|
A: Yes. You must be 18 or older at the time of registration.
Q: Can I skip the Basic Seminar and take the Advanced?
A: No. You must complete the Basic Seminar before taking the Advanced.
Q: Do you offer financial assistance for those on a fixed income?
A: Unfortunately, no. We do not profit from running Oaksterdam University in any way and need your tuition to recoup some of that loss.
Q: I missed my class(es), can I be refunded?
A: Refunds are not available to those who miss their classes without proper notice. If you know you are going to miss your class, please let us know at least 7 days in advance so that we can fill your seat. A re-filing fee of $50 per cancellation will apply. You will not be eligible for a refund or cancellation within 7 days of the class.
Q: Is there a test?
A: There is an optional test for those who have completed all 101 or 102 classes. Students who pass the test(s) (and applicable homeworks) with a 75% or higher will receive certification from Oaksterdam University.
Q: What are the benefits of certification?
A: If you are applying for a job at a dispensary, our hope is that our certification program will give you the advantage in the selection process over someone who has NOT received certification. Certification shows that you have taken all of our courses and have proved that you have met our standards of knowledge in the cannabis industry. Once receiving certification from us, you are encouraged to list Oaksterdam University under "special training". Dispensaries can then call and verify that you are a student in good standing.
Q: I love what you're doing. Do you accept donations?
A: In the wake of recent federal raids, Oaksterdam is currently accepting donations to help keep classes going while we get back on our feet. You can make a donation at www.oaksterdamuniversity.com or mail a check made out to "Wise Education Technologies, Inc." to 1734 Telegraph Ave, Oakland, CA 94612. Your support is very much appreciated.
Q: Can I pay my tuition with a credit card?
A: We accept cash, check, money order and Visa/Mastercard.
Q: Do I have to list all of my personal information on my enrollment form?
A: Absolutely, yes. Once we receive payment from you, we will need to contact you to confirm your registration. Failure to provide accurate information means that we cannot guarantee that you have a seat for your class. We do not share your information with anyone.
Q: Do you offer online courses?
A: We do not offer online classes at this time, but we are currently developing a system to offer online courses.
