We have a very fair policy regarding our payment for tuition and subsequent assessment of late fees. Payments are due on or before the 1st of the month via autopay. Your credit card on file will be charged the 1st of the month unless a withdraw is received by the 15th of the month prior. Please scroll down on this page to read the guidelines on withdrawing from classes. A grace period of 5 consecutive days will be honored. Cards that are declined or we are unable to charge must be replaced ASAP, if they are not updated by the 5th of the month the account will be charged a $25 late fee regardless of reason. Tuition is based on a 9 month program (September through May). Tuition is due regardless of class attendance or holiday schedule. Invoices will not be sent via USPS or email unless the account is late. Accounts must be current prior to the start of the first class of each tuition due date, in order for a student to participate in class(es).
Declined Credit Card:
Please remember that the 1st of every month is when we charge tuition on the card we have on file at the studio. This is the card in your profile on The Studio Director, which you are able to access by logging in here: CLICK This very important to keep your card updated and inform us of any changes. There will be a $10 fee added to your account for any cards that are declined.
The quality of our facility and faculty depends upon a system of mutual respect and cooperation. We understand that anyone may make a late payment from time to time, but please be respectful of our late fee policy. Please note that any student with an overdue balance will not be permitted to take class until the balance is paid.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Information on Make-ups:
CCDA does not allow pro-rating of classes for absences or holidays. If a class is cancelled due to an Instructor absence, we will offer a make-up class or adjust the following month’s tuition based on the number of classes you are enrolled in. We do not offer make-ups for holidays since the annual rate does not include holidays. Even though we permit monthly tuition payments and our families can pay monthly, the tuition rates are based on a yearly (12 month, (44 week) tuition scale which includes CCDA being closed certain holidays of the year. CCDA will follow, in most cases, the Natomas School District schedule and the Sacramento City Unified School District Schedule as much as possible. Regardless of the length of the month, tuition remains the same. Unlike many other studios, we don’t charge for the “fifth” class in any given month and because of this there are a few days each month, on a rotating basis, where the class ends up being free! Please keep in mind that during the course of the year, the same tuition each month not only allows CCDA to offer a substantial discount, but also a lot of options and conveniences and extra classes you otherwise wouldn’t have. We do not allow pro-rating of tuition unless we cancel a regularly scheduled class and no make-ups are available. Please note that make-ups do not apply to unlimited students because they are able to take as many classes as they choose monthly.
When your child is absent due to illness, family emergency, or another serious obligation your child has the option to make-up the missed class in another class of the same discipline, or another class if approved by the director. Making up a class is optional, but CCDA does not refund for missed classes. Ballet Academic division students may make-up a missed class in the level immediately below or at their level. Please make sure to schedule your child’s make-ups prior to attending the class as it is based on space availability. Please note that make-ups must be made during the same month the absent happened, makes-ups cannot be rolled over. A maximum of 2 make-ups a month will be permitted based on the above mentioned reasons, more than that will be subject to approval pending circumstance.
Make-ups can no longer be done in advance; they must take place after the absence.
Withdrawal from the Academy:
Withdrawals must be done through our Withdrawal Form and received by the 15th of the month prior to withdrawal. For example, if you wish to withdrawal for March, we must received your withdrawal form by February 15th. Students are considered enrolled in the academy until they are withdrawn. Simply not showing up to class does not withdrawal you from the academy. The yearly recital does not end your enrollment, the end of the session does not end enrollment. Enrollment ends when the student is withdrawn, and this is done through our withdrawal form. The form can be picked up at the front desk. Withdrawals will not be accepted over the phone or via email. Payment is required on each payment due date until withdrawal form is received. Failure to submit a withdrawal form by the 15th will incur a charge to your credit card for the following month when withdrawal is submitted. Please note that withdrawling from the academy cancels your yearly registration and if you re-enrolled at a later date you will have to pay the registration fee again. CCDA does not “freeze” accounts to hold spots.
