Online Course Policies

Assignments are not graded in standard alphanumeric grades, but generally in the form of satisfactory or unsatisfactory. Some unsatisfactory assignments may need to be repeated.

The instructor may withhold future lessons when previous lessons are not yet completed. Questions are answered both privately and in Google Classroom, and feedback will be given.

Online students will be required to participate in the Mentorship Program and will be mentored by an advanced student or graduate in the Mystery School, allowing others in the community greater experience in teaching, mentoring, and leadership.

Students in each online class will be provided with updated class policies and procedures.

For general policies of the Temple of Witchcraft, please see the Temple Handbook.

  • In the event that the student notifies the dean prior to 2 weeks before the first lesson that they no longer wish to take the course, a full refund of the course fee will be made.
  • Students who notify us of withdrawal from the course before the fourth lesson is sent out will be refunded 75% of the course fee.

Any other withdrawals will be handled on a case-by-case basis and may be eligible for refunds based on circumstances.

Students withdrawing from a course due to health or family reasons may be able to apply their refund toward credit for re-taking the same course with the same instructor.

The course fee covers all online written and audio materials, usually sent in PDF and MP3 formats. This does not include the required textbook or CD companion (required for the online course) both of which can be ordered at fine local metaphysical stores or online, including at www.christopherpenczak.com. The class fee also does not include any suggested reading or supplies, such as incense, candles, herbs, stones, or jewelry. You will be notified of suggested materials in each of the appropriate lessons.

Payment: A payment link for online payment is included in the confirmation message when you complete the online application form, which you may use to submit the deposit, balance of your payment, or to pay for the class in full; you may also mail a check or money order. Please do not send cash. All checks and money orders can be made directly to “Temple of Witchcraft” and mailed to:

Mystery School Payment Frequently Asked Questions

When do I pay for the course?

Payment in full is due two weeks before the start of the course. We recommend that you pay the balance of your course fee upon receipt of your acceptance letter. Those students with an unpaid balance when the course begins will not receive course materials.

Will you send a bill?

No. The Temple will not send out a bill or invoice for payment. It is the responsibility of the student to make the necessary payments on time. However, if payment is not received in a timely manner, a reminder will be sent. Payments not received before the end of the 3rd month of the course will be subject to an additional $25 late fee.
