This contract is subject to the terms, conditions, and policies stated herein.

  • Tuition is an annual agreement based upon a YEARLY rate. By registering your child as Sas School of Dance, you agree to pay the entire ANNUAL tuition amount, as stated on your registration form, with the exception of withdrawal from the program.
  • Annual tuition is based upon a minimum of 36 weeks of classes taught over a 42 week period, during any given school year. Two additional "free" weeks are built into the program to allow for personal days, illness, etc. Therefore, tuition covers at least 38 weeks of classes. After the school year begins, tuition is pro-rated based upon the start date of the student.
  • Tuition can be paid in one annual payment, semi-annual payments, quarterly payments or monthly payments. When paid monthly, tuition is broken into 10 easy payments for families to budget. Tuition payments are made on a PRE-PAID basis; one month ahead.
  • First month's tuition payment, last months' tuition payment and the annual registration fee are due at sign-up and are non-refundable. There are no partial-month reimbursements.
  • A $35.00 annual registration fee is due at sign-up. There is one annual registration fee due per family per year. This fee is non-refundable.
  • If a student withdraws BEFORE the school session begins, then the full tuition amount will be refunded, except the registration fee.
  • If the entire year's tuition is paid in advance (or a large portion of the year's tuition is paid in advance), and the student needs to withdraw, then full future months' tuition payments will be credited or reimbursed. However, last month's tuition, current/partial month's tuition, and the annual registration fee are all non-refundable.
  • The school year at SAS is 10 months, Sept thru June. SAS closes for major holidays only. Tuition is applied only to classes that are in session, and not to class times that fall on holidays or school closings. Any snow closings are added to the school year, just like public school.
  • If a student does not attend his/her scheduled classes, then these classes are lost. There are no 'make-up' classes.
  • Payment is due by the 1st of the month. If a scheduled payment is not received by the 7th of the month, then a late fee of $25.00 will be charged on the 8th of the month.
  • For accounts in arrears, after 30 days the student will be asked to withdraw from classes until payment arrangements can be made with the school.
  • All student schedule changes must be approved by the director.
  • Dropping a class or withdrawing from the school requires written notification to SAS School of Dance. Tuition billing will continue until such notification is received.
  • A $35.00 fee will be charged for a returned check.
  • A 3.5% processing fee will be applied to all credit/debit payments.
