Enrollment is based on a first-come, first-serve basis and will remain open until all spots are filled.
Participation is contingent upon the following criteria:
  • Completion and submission of AWL Creative's Cohort Level Two enrollment form
  • Submission of payment by deposit and first month's payment prior to official start date OR payment in full.

Option 1: Payment made in full at time of enrollment.
Option 2: Deposit payment made at time of enrollment with six equal consecutive payments made on a monthly basis. Deposit is non-refundable, and is not applied towards monthly payments. A separate payment link for monthly payments will be sent to students prior to start date. Students have the option to enroll in autopay. Monthly payments are due on the 1st day of each month. A 10% late fee will be applied to payments made after the 5th day of the month.
No refunds will be given and can not be redeemed for credit.
Failure to complete the program does not release participants from any financial commitments.
Tuition payments will be processed via Stripe Payment Processing Platform.


Event dates and times are established prior to the start of the program. However, situations may arise that are out of our control may cause for reschedule. Situations such as inclement weather, power outages, third party cancellations, etc. We make all attempts to keep on schedule, as we know schedules are difficult to manage.

We strongly encourage students to:
  • Attend all classes 
  • Attend Accountability Groups 
  • Attend office hours with coach
  • Complete a pre- and post-assessment, module surveys and exit interview

If unable to attend, students must notify the cohort coach as soon as possible.
Failure to attend more than 3 classes; or more than 3 accountability group sessions (or equivalent option - see "ACCOUNTABILITY GROUPS"); or more than 2 classes and 2 accountability group sessions will result in losing access to AWL Creative's Cohort program networking and social events, including graduation.

Classes will be held bi-weekly on Tuesday Nights starting at 6:30pm - 8:30pm and will be held in-person at AWL Creative - 11 South King Street, Leesburg, VA 20176. We kindly request students arrive on time. Virtual attendance is not available. 
We encourage students to bring either pen and paper or an electronic device to take notes.
Access to class material will be available on AWL Creative's Cohort Platform prior to class start time.

During the onboarding process, students will be surveyed for their availability to attend accountability groups. These sessions are 60-minute session, held either in-person at AWL Creative or virtually on Zoom. Each group will include no more than 4 students, plus coach. The accountability groups are the heart of the cohort program. Attendance and involvement will make the biggest impact on a student's program experience and success. Therefore, if a student is unable to attend during their scheduled time, they must attend one of the other accountability groups for that week, or schedule a check-in with the coach.

AWL Creative does not guarantee student success, experience or business growth of any kind. It is up to you to do the hard work that it takes to grow your business. During the duration of their enrollment in the cohort program, students will be provided and have access to educational content and resources, industry experts and educators, and supportive community - students must provide the effort.
