FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE GLOBAL STYLE ACADEMY?
GSA (The Global Style Academy) is a fashion school for stylists.GSA was formed to address the global pandemic and help those who wanted to be personal stylists anywhere in the world. This academy is taught online and in person and will teach you everything you need to know to get your career started in the fashion industry.
DO YOU OFFER SCHOLARSHIPS OR FINANCIAL AID?
We do not give scholarships or financial help because we are a career training school rather than an official university. We do, however, offer affordable payment plans to make the workshops available to everyone who is serious about furthering their fashion education and career.
HOW DO THE PAYMENT PLANS WORK?
Payment plans break the total cost of the program down into monthly payments spread across 3 months. The amount of the payment depends on the full price of that particular class.
Once you enroll in a class using the payment plan option at checkout, your credit, debit card, or PayPal account will be billed for the first installment. You will be charged that same amount on or around the same date each month until all of your payments have been completed.
Registering for a class using a payment plan gives you the same access to the training modules as those students that pay in full.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY?
The Global Style Academy is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Here’s how it works: If you do the work and don’t get value, submit your completed worksheets within the first 14 days, let us know what didn’t work for you, and get a full refund. Simple as that. Do the work, and if you’re not happy, we’ll make it right with a refund. (Please see our complete terms and conditions here for details)
