1. Card on File
All accounts must keep a valid credit or debit card on file with Dothan/Enterprise School of Dance.
We will automatically charge your card on file for the $35.00 Registration fee per student and final month's tuition (May 2018).
Account holders may choose to have regular tuition payments automatically charged on either 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 Dothan/Enterprise School of Dance to charge the card on file for the past due amount. Dothan/Enterprise School of Dance will notify the account holder before processing this payment.
2. Registration Fees
We will automatically charge your card on file for the $35.00 Registration fee per student and final month's tuition (May 2018) upon completion of your registration. Both of these fees are non-refundable.
3. Trimester Tuition & Late Fees
ALL registration fees, tuition, recital fees, costumes, etc. are non-refundable.
Billing is done by the trimester – 1st Trimester: August, September, October; 2nd Trimester: November, December, January; 3rd Trimester: February, March, April. Tuition is due on the 1st. All payments must be paid online through the Parent Portal, postmarked, or received in the office by the 10th of the month to avoid a late fee (Please note this date has changed). Since we bill by the trimester, if a student drops during the trimester, the current trimester tuition will not be refunded.
Tuition for additional immediate family members, living in the same household, will be discounted 10%.
The tuition rate is for the entire season (August-May). It is not based on the number of classes during a month, but on the entire duration of our season. Some months will have more/fewer classes, but tuition charges remain the same. No refunds or deductions are given if a student misses a class for any reason. Makeup classes are available for missed lessons. Please contact the office for more information.
We will be closed for Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Spring Break.
4. Option to pay by the month
A $3.00 per month convenience fee will be added to all accounts who choose to pay monthly instead of by the trimester.
5. Payments and 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, American Express, cash and check.
There will be a $38.00 charge for all returned checks and late fees will be applied. If your check is returned by the bank, we require you to make all future payments in the form of credit card through the Parent Portal, cash, or money order/cashier’s check.
Accounts must be paid in full to participate in the Recital.
If an account becomes 60 days overdue, the account holder will be notified that the student cannot participate until the account has been paid in full, or a payment plan has been agreed upon with our office.
6. Recital Costume Fee
Students who are participating in the Recital will be required to purchase one costume for each subject. The costume fee of $80.00 plus tax ($87.20) will be posted to accounts and are due by October 1st. Any additional costume balances if applicable will be due by January 1st.
7. Drop/Withdrawal Policy
At the beginning of the year, you may change your schedule without a penalty prior to September 1st.
After September 1st, there is a drop fee of $10.00 per class. You must notify the office in writing of any change or drop in class schedules. Students should only drop a class at the END of a trimester. We will not lower tuition rates in the middle of a trimester if a class is dropped.
If a student drops all classes during the year, neither May nor the current trimester tuition will be refunded. NON ATTENDANCE IS NOT CONSIDERED WITHDRAWAL FROM CLASS. Trimester charges will continue and you will be responsible for payment until the office receives written notification of withdrawal.
Statements will be sent to overdue accounts only. We WILL NOT send out monthly statements. You will receive a message reminding you of tuition and fee deadlines. You may log in to your Parent Portal at your convenience to view your statement and/or account balance and make a payment at any time.
Students should not arrive more than 10 minutes before their scheduled class time and should be picked up immediately after class. A $10.00 fee will be charged to your account if you are more than 15 minutes late to pick up your child. This fee will be paid to the teacher that had to wait with your child. Young children waiting in the lobby must be supervised and are expected to follow all rules and policies.
All students participating in the Recital will be charged a $35.00 Recital Fee. This fee is due by January 1st. This fee assists with the cost of producing a professional show: facility rental, music editing, lighting, sound, technical crews, and all other production needs.
We will split the classes into 2 separate Recitals. The Recitals will be May 12 – ESD and May 19 - DSD, there will be one in the morning and one in the afternoon. We will announce the Recital line-up for each show by October 1st (before Recital Costume Fees are due).
