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.


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.


A $25 service fee will be charged on all accounts for each returned check.


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 prorated on a weekly basis. Class schedules and faculty are subject to change.


Beginning September 1, 2023, a 4% fee will be assessed to all credit card transactions. The transaction fee will be automatically added when each credit card payment is processed and the account holder is responsible for paying the fee. Account holders have the option to pay by cash or check to avoid the 4% transaction fee. Account holders can enroll in the Automatic Payment Plan, which will waive the transaction fee for credit card payments applied to Registration & Tuition Fees; however, the transaction fee will be applied to credit card payments applied to any and all other fees. Automatic Payments must be approved on a consistent basis for the transaction fee to be waived on payments applied to Registration & Tuition Fees.
