Payment must be received on or before the due date.
All accounts that are not current are subject to a late fee of $15.

If payment on a student account is not current the student will not be permitted to participate in class or performance opportunities. In the unlikely event that we have to take steps beyond invoicing to collect payments we can hold you responsible for interest at the maximum lawful rate from the due date of payment, cost of collection, and reasonable attorney fees. You agree to pay these if such steps are necessary, for any and all amounts due.

Official withdrawals must be made at the Front Desk. Any refund amount may be applied toward existing or future balances. You may also request a refund, a refund check will be mailed approximately 30 days after the refund request. If you know you will be absent during the semester, please let us know as soon as possible so your tuition can be adjusted.
