The following Policies are meant to be read in conjunction with our stated Terms and Conditions of Use, Privacy Policy, and Health and Safety Disclaimer. Please read all of these documents prior to enrolling in our online courses. Your enrollment in any of our online courses constitutes your acceptance of these Terms and Policies in full. Thank you for your cooperation!


Online Course Certification Policy

To obtain a Certificate of Certification associated with a given course, students must complete all stated requirements for that course. These requirements vary by course and are detailed on the first day of a course. Course fees do not change for students who choose to not pursue certification. In joining a course, students agree to the terms and requirements relating to our certification process.


Online Course Refund Policy

All of our online courses come with a 72-hour, no-questions-asked, 100% guarantee. The 72-hour period starts when the first video, audio and/or written instructional, resource list, or other preparatory information is provided by MYCOLOGOS. Refunds will not be issued after this 72-hour period has ended.

All of our online course are streamed from an online server and cannot be downloaded for offline viewing. It is each user's responsibility to ensure that they have sufficient means to access a course's content. MYCOLOGOS is not liable for any refund amount due to technical problems on your computer, including but not limited to: printer malfunction, inability to install Adobe Acrobat Reader, or problems due to Internet connectivity.

Students who do not qualify for certification for any reason, or who violate our Terms or Policies, lose privileges in the MYCOLOGOS Community Forum, or are dismissed from enrollment for any reason will not be issued a refund.


MYCOLOGOS Community Forum Policies

Students enrolled in one or more of our online courses will receive access to a portion of the MYCOLOGOS Community Forum (MCF) associated with the specific course(s) they are enrolled in. Forum members are encouraged to engage in this platform to share research, collaborate on designs, provide peer support and feedback, and to build professional and private relationships.

Access to the MCF will be provided for the life of the Forum unless a Forum member does one or more of the following:

  • Discriminates against any person or group of people on the basis of race, color, sex, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, marital status, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. This applies to MYCOLOGOS staff and students, as well as any person or group outside of MYCOLOGOS.
  • Shares, distributes, recreates, plagiarizes, or otherwise reproduces in any form any educational resource provided by MYCOLOGOS, whether outside of the MYCOLOGOS platform or between Forum sections.
  • Posts promotional information about any business, event, good, or service apart from those businesses, events, goods, and services discussed by MYCOLOGOS directly.
  • Creates or joins an unauthorized discussion platform outside of the MYCOLOGOS website (for example a Facebook group, Reddit subreddit, or similar social media or online discussion platform) that directly and/or intentionally interferes with, undermines, or threatens the success of MYCOLOGOS and its Website, Products and Services, or other offerings in any form.

Forum members violating any of the above or our Terms and Conditions will lose access to the MYCOLOGOS Forum for one month. If a second violation is made thereafter, Forum privileges will be permanently revoked.


Student Dismissal Policy

MYCOLOGOS reserves the right to dismiss any student, including terminating access to all or any portion of the Website, for violating any of the above, our Terms and Conditions, or any other Policies set forth by MYCOLOGOS. Reasons for dismissal include but are not limited to comments that are deemed discriminatory, hateful, or abusive, or activities that are or seem to be in violation of any state, federal, or international law. Conduct which interferes with the success of MYCOLOGOS, its educational endeavors, or which hurts or threatens the welfare of MYCOLOGOS Students or staff may be cause for dismissal as well. No refund of any fees paid by a student will be issued in the event of dismissal.
