Payment is due by the 1st of the month and late after the 5th.
Full tuition is due every month regardless of attendance and/or holidays. Tuition for the year is divided into 9 equal installments. Payments do not vary due to holidays or the number of weeks in a month. Dance by Design guarantees a minimum of 32 classes during the season. Tuition will NOT be prorated.
One month’s tuition is due at the time of registration as a deposit. This tuition will be used for the last month’s tuition of the current season. EX: registration May 1, 2019 for the 2019-2020 season and tuition deposit will be used for May 2020’s tuition. The deposit is NON REFUNDABLE.
Personal checks, credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, & Discover), debit cards, and cash are accepted as forms of payment
E-payment is offered online. All accounts that register online will be automatically signed up for e-payment and will be used to clear all invoices (registration fee, tuition, costume fee, late fee, etc). Tuition is drafted by the 3rd of the month. It is the account holder's responsibility to update all information. If you wish to pay by cash or check you must give the studio written notification. Credit Cards on file that are rejected will be charged a $5 service fee each time after the first decline.
Parents of students wishing to drop a class must fill out the WITHDRAWAL FORM to the studio by the 15th of the month. Failure to do so will make you responsible for full tuition for the following month.
Missed classes will not result in prorated tuition or refund. Make-up classes may be scheduled by email for those students who miss class due to illness/injury. Missed classes must be made up within thirty days.
A $15 late fee will be charged for payments received after the 10th of the month. Holidays or a student's absence from class does not waive this fee. Dance by Design does not send out monthly statements. Reminders will be sent out if payment is late.
Postdated checks will not be accepted
Return check charge $30
All payments will cease at the end of the session. Students must register for each session (Full Season-Sept-May, Summer Session 1, Summer Session 2).
