Frequently Asked Questions

Should a student change their mind and want to cancel a workshop that has been prepaid, they will be able to receive a full refund of the payment up to 7 days prior to the start of the first session. If the student cancels within 7 days of the first session, they will receive a partial refund of 75% of the original cost so Uniquely U. can cover any administrative fees. If the student wishes to cancel once the workshop has begun, no refunds will be issued. However, we understand that sometimes extenuating circumstances occur. In this instance, the administration will utilize discretion. On the other hand, if Uniquely U. cancels a workshop for any reason, if a comparable workshop is available, we will offer that as an alternative or issue a full refund — it will be the student’s choice.

When scheduling workshops for our U-Instructors, we work hand in hand to ensure that they can commit to the dates we set for their workshops. Should something arise that is beyond their control, we will simply push the workshop to the following week at the same time. Alternatively, if the U-Instructor cannot fulfill their commitment for whatever the reason, we will either bring in a substitute U-Instructor to complete the workshop with the students or issue a partial refund to the students. This will be determined on a case by case basis.

As of June 1, 2022, all registered users will have membership status. Currently all users can register for free, so membership fees at this time are not applicable. If you wish to cancel your membership entirely, please email to submit a cancellation request.

Nope! The sky’s the limit here, so please enjoy and take advantage of the amazing curriculum and content!

As a student, if you are experiencing technical difficulties, please know that there will be a replay link available within 24 hours of each session. You can access the links in your workshop locker. Replay links will be available for streaming  in perpetuity in the Uniquely U. portal, accessible via your workshop locker — you just need to have a current membership registration to access your locker. You can also communicate with your U-Instructor in their Slack channel (link is also available in your locker), when the technicalities sort themselves out.

U-Instructors will share required materials with students prior to or post workshops via their Slack channel, so it is important that students join the channel so they don’t miss anything. At the U-Instructor’s discretion, any additional resources are available upon request.

No exams, but there will be homework when appropriate to help you integrate what you are learning in the workshops. There will be a certificate of completion available for download once the workshop is finished. On the horizon, we will be adding badges and other fun rewards for completing the workshops.

Currently, your membership allows you to sign up for workshops, apply to be a U-Instructor and create a U-Social profile. Member perks will be added as we introduce new features within the platform.

Yes, your membership will automatically renew on an annual basis. If you have paid for a membership plan, the card you have on file will be automatically charged. You’ll receive a renewal reminder notification roughly 30 days prior to your anniversary date. If you are grandfathered in with a free lifetime membership, then you will not need to do anything to renew, we’ve got you covered!

Firstly, add the sessions to your calendar and make sure you commit to those dates. Then join your U-Instructor’s Slack channel and introduce yourself. Here, your U-Instructor may post materials for you to print or to  have ready for your first session. Don’t forget to give yourself enough time to log in and get settled before class starts. Lastly, have FUN!

Yes there are child-friendly courses available. They can be located in the It Takes a Village School and will be identified accordingly.  Any workshop geared for children under the age of 18 must be purchased on behalf of a minor child by an adult Uniquely U. member who is over the age of 18 years old. The member agrees to assume all responsibility for the child’s interactions on the Uniquely U. platform. We encourage the adult to monitor the minor’s usage, and the adult and minor agrees to release Uniquely U., and hold Uniquely U. harmless from any and all content viewed, or interactions with any party. At any and all times, because access to the workshop will be through the member’s account, the member may also attend the child’s workshop, communicate with their U-Instructor and view replays. We highly value everyone’s privacy, but equally important, we wish for everyone to have a safe and trusting experience. After all, it does take a village, doesn’t it?!
