Tuition Policies

    Tuition may be paid by Semester or Monthly. Semester Tuition is due during the first week of classes and is NON-REFUNDABLE. Monthly tuition is paid in four installments—the first is due during the first week of the semester and then the following three payments are due on the 15th of the three consecutive months following. To pay tuition Monthly, a separate agreement must be filled out and signed in the Business Office.On the payment plan agreement, there will be an option to set up automatic withdrawals from your checking account. The automatic withdrawal will be set to come out on the 15th of each month during the payment plan agreement period.

    Payments received after five working days of the due date will incur a $15.00 late fee.

    Tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE—Once registered, all participants agree to pay for the entire semester, whether they pay in by Semester or Monthly. Account balances unfulfilled will be sent to a collection agency after 90 days in arrears. Springfield Ballet will NOT refund or credit any tuition, except in the case of serious injury or illness as verified by a doctor’s note or if moving out of town (please notify us in writing). Other extenuating circumstances may be approved for credit only (no refunds), but that will be determined on a case-by-case basis and must be presented in writing.

    At the time of registration, a $30 non-refundable deposit per student is due. The deposit will be applied to the full payment for first monthly installment.

    Families with two or more children enrolled receive a 20% discount off the second (and all subsequent) student’s tuition.

    Springfield Ballet will accept check or VISA, MasterCard, or Discover for tuition and production fee payments. NO CASH is accepted for tuition and production fee payments. The $5.00 convenience fee is waived for all tuition and production fee payments, including private lessons, rehearsal makeup lessons, and summer camps.

    The $5 convenience charge will apply to drop-in classes, class card purchases, workshops, master classes, special event purchases, and other miscellaneous purchases. Cash, check, or credit/debit card are accepted for these purchases.

    Private lessons and rehearsal makeup lessons must be paid at the time of the lesson.

    Any returned checks will result in a $30 charge.

    If there is an unpaid balance on an account, the student will not be able to enroll in any subsequent Springfield Ballet classes, productions, camps, workshops or master classes until the account is in good standing.
