- 9 Month Installment Plan: NEW – all 9 installment plans are REQUIRED to be on auto pay. Your first payment will include the registration fee plus 2 installments. This is due at the time of registration. This is NOT a monthly payment plan, but annual tuition broken down over the course of 10 months as a convenience offered to make payments easier. Payments run September 1st- May 1st and are due on the 1st of the month.
If you choose the 3 or 9 installment plans and/or you register online, a credit card will be required to remain on account. The 9 installment plan is required to be on auto pay. Credit card information is stored in a secure database in which only the last four digits and expiration date are visible. Credit card payments are for tuition charges only and will not be accepted for costumes or any other recital expense. If for any reason your card is declined, you will receive notification to update your card through our online system. Paying the installments does not entitle you to drop at anytime; you are still responsible for the year after the withdrawal deadline. Students not participating in the recital are responsible for all 9 installments.
Payment is due on the 1st of the month. If payment is not received by the 5th of the month, a $10 late fee will be applied to your account and your credit card will be automatically charged. If your credit card is declined, payment is required before the 5th of the month to avoid the $10 late fee. Payments submitted via online bill pay or postal mail will also be subject to the $10 late fee if received after the 5th. Accounts 60 days past due will result in non-admittance into class. Any outstanding balance will be sent to collections and/or result in legal action. NO EXCEPTIONS!
