POLICIES & INFORMATION
REGISTRATION & TUITION:
A $60 annual registration fee per student and the first month’s tuition must be received in order to reserve a student’s place in class. If you register, you are considered to be enrolled for the full term. All other nine months (September – May) are due by the 1st of each month. There is a $15 late fee for tuition not paid by the 10th of the month and each month after that the month tuition was due if it has not been paid. WE DO NOT SEND MONTHLY STATEMENTS, EXCEPT TO OVERDUE ACCOUNTS. Tuition is the same if the studio is closed for a holiday or if your child misses a lesson; therefore, we do not charge extra when there are five lessons in a month. Tuition for additional immediate family members living in the same household will be discounted 10%. Drop-in classes may be taken at $15.00 per class.
CARD ON FILE:
All accounts must keep a valid credit/debit card on file or Bank draft with Prodigy Dance Centre.
Account holders may choose to have regular tuition payments automatically charged on the first of each month. This setting can be changed at any time in the Parent Portal.
If an account becomes 90 days overdue the account holder authorizes Prodigy Dance Centre to charge the card on file for the past due amount. Prodigy Dance Centre will notify the account holder before processing this payment.
DROP / WITHDRAWAL POLICY:
Students should only add or drop a class at the end of the month since tuition will not be prorated. If at any time you need to withdraw, you must NOTIFY THE OFFICE IN WRITING prior to the withdrawal. Non-attendance is not considered withdrawal from class. Monthly charges continue and tuition is due until we receive written notification of withdrawal. If a student drops mid-month, that month’s tuition will not be refunded, due to that student taking up a spot in the class that another student could have occupied for the entire year. There is a drop fee of $10.00 for each class student withdrawals from if a class is dropped from one month to the next. At the beginning of the year, you may change your schedule without a penalty if you do it prior to September 1st. After that time, the drop fee will be enforced.
PAYMENTS & OVERDUE ACCOUNTS:
All payments received are applied to outstanding charges in the order in which they were billed. No exceptions.
Payment methods include: online payments through the Parent Portal, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, cash and check.
There will be a $25.00 charge for all returned checks and late fees will be applied.
