Late Fee Policy

There will be a late charge of $25 for each payment on all accounts that are past due. There is a five (5) day grace period for those on the monthly payment plan and a ten (10) day grace period for those on a quarterly payment plan. Once the grace period has ended you are responsible for paying the tuition and the late fee. Accounts that are more than 90 days past due may be turned over to a collection agency and the student will no longer be allowed to attend class.

Automatic Payment Plan

For your convenience, an automatic payment option is available to those who authorize the Draper Center for Dance Education to automatically charge their VISA, MasterCard, or Discover Card. Automatic payments will be processed on the tuition due dates and notification will be received that that transaction was processed. In the event that the transaction is declined for any reason, the responsible party will be notified and expected to follow the tuition schedule in order to avoid the $25 late fee. Authorization is necessary for each session that the student returns to our school in order to remain on the automatic payment plan.

Refund Policy

Registration fees are non-refundable under any circumstances. Tuition fees are non-refundable except in the event of serious injury or illness, in which case the student must provide written documentation from the doctor.  In these cases, credit may be extended for future classes or a refund granted.  Requests for refunds must be in writing and accompanied by a physician’s certificate stating inability to continue class. Refunds will be pro-rated on a weekly basis. Class schedules and faculty are subject to change.
