Tuition & Late Fees
- Tuition is an Annual amount that is automatically drafted via monthly installments the fifth day of each month. Tuition is automatically drafted from the payment method you have stored in your online Jack Rabbit account. A $20 late fee will be added to all Annual tuition installment payments not paid by the 10th of each month. If payment is not paid by the 1st of the following month, that class spot may be given to the next child on the waiting list.
- Tuition is posted on the first day of each month and a general email reminder is sent to all families as a reminder that tuition has been posted and is soon to be charged. On the fifth day of the month, tuition payments will run and your tuition will be charged to the payment method you have stored to your online Jack Rabbit account. Log into your online Jack Rabbit account to check your schedule and view transactions regularly.
- Tuition is not prorated for absences, holidays or partial months. It is an Annual tuition.
- The Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance will only send statements via email to delinquent or problem accounts.
- Accounts that are not reconciled by the 1st of the following month will result in the student(s) being dropped from our roles. Reconciled accounts will have an opportunity to re-enroll in classes; however the desire to do so does not guarantee that the same class/schedule will be available. A re-enrollment fee of $20.00 will apply.
- Accounts that become more than 30 days overdue will be considered grounds for collections action.
- Declined credit card charges or bank drafts will be charged a $25.00 fee. Bank account and credit card information shall be current, active, and drawn on a local bank only. No out of state checking accounts will be accepted as a form of security.
- We honor Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.
- Please note there is a $25 fee for any returned checks.
- Anyone wishing to pay for monthly tuition or fees via an alternate form of payment (other than our auto draft Jack Rabbit payment system) will incur a $15 processing fee per transaction. The $15 fee will apply each time a payment (for tuition; costumes; performance fees; etc.) is made with cash, check or by credit card at the studio. If you wish to consistently pay via an alternate payment method, the $15 processing will be built into your monthly charges. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to pay other than through the auto drafted Jack Rabbit system. The only exception to this is persons wishing to pay for the year in full (and receive a 5% discount on tuition). If you wish to pay for the year in full, you may do so by using an alternate payment method without the $15 processing fee.
- If it becomes necessary for you to drop a class or add a class, these changes must be made by completing an online submission. Go to www.tysod.com and look under Policies for Class Schedule Changes for Enrolled Students.
- To add a class, you will enroll in the class through your online Jack Rabbit portal.
- To add a specialty class (a class that, for example, you may not be able to enroll in due to age restrictions) , submit an online submission (Specialty Class Add Form) at www.tysod.com
- If you add a class, it is assumed you wish to participate in the recital for that class and you will be charged an additional costume fee.
- To drop a class, submit an online submission (Drop Class Form) at www.tysod.com
- For each class you either add or drop, you must submit a separate submission, per class.
- You will receive confirmation of your change once it has been received and your account has been updated. Do not consider requested changes effective until confirmation by email has been received.
- Please note that by verbally dropping; adding a class or discussing this change with instructors does not make the change official. You must submit your online request using the online drop class form and online specialty class add form to make your change effective.
- Please note, Class Change Forms must be submitted by the 25th of the current month for the schedule change to be effective for the following month. Class changes will not occur mid-month and NO REFUNDS will be given for classes not attended.
How Class Changes Affects Tuition:
- If you drop one class and add another, it is considered a schedule change and no charge is incurred unless the new class is a different length of time than the class being dropped. For example, if you were taking a 45 minute class and change to a one hour class, your tuition would increase from the fee for a 45 minute class to the fee for an hour class. This applies to class change as a result of class cancellation.
- If you are adding a class to your current schedule tuition will increase according to the open school fees based on total hours taken.
- I hereby authorize the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance to charge my credit card or checking account for all services and products related to my family's enrollment in classes and activities at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance, including but not limited to tuition, memberships, special events, costumes, recital fees, accessories, etc. (Note: Fees are subject to change). If Annual tuition is submitted via monthly installments I understand that my credit or debit card will continue to be charged on the monthly, session or periodic basis unless I notify the front desk by turning in a withdrawal form at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance 30 days before intent to discontinue. I understand that it will not be sufficient notice to merely tell an instructor or supervisor of our intent to discontinue. Nor send an e-mail. I have read this entire agreement and understand that I will be held fully responsible for its terms and conditions of service, including a thirty (30) day written notice to the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance of any intent to discontinue (e-mail will not be accepted). I understand that once the monthly installments for my annual tuition have occurred there will be no refund given if I decide to discontinue. I agree to notify the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance, immediately of any change in the status of my charge account including but not limited to card expiration, name change, limitation of use, loss or theft or the card, etc. In the event that the amount charged is refused for whatever reason, I accept responsibility for full payment for the amount charged as well as a NSF fee of $25.00.
