TUITION POLICY

Tuition covers twelve weeks of instruction during the specified period, exclusive of holidays.

Fall Semester Tuition is due in full by Thursday, September 17, 2015.  Spring Semester Tuition is due in full by Thursday, January 21, 2016.  Payment options are available upon request through signed contract at the discretion of the Youth Conservatory.  Please contact the YC office for more information.  A late payment fee of $25 per enrolled student will be assessed on accounts that are two weeks or more in arrears, and lessons and classes will be suspended until payment is received.  Accounts may be referred to outside collection agencies, including small claims courts, if they are delinquent over 50 days.  Further, the parent or legal guardian is responsible for any legal charges incurred by the YC when pursuing delinquent payments.

Tuition refunds will be issued in accordance with the following policy:

                    Before classes begin:                                            100%

                    After 1st week:                                                           75%

                    After 2nd week:                                                         50%

                    After 3rd week:                                                            0%

No tuition refunds are offered after the 3rd week, and families paying their tuition in payments will still be expected to pay the remainder of their tuition, even if their child discontinues lessons.  If a child discontinues lessons, parents are requested to notify the office prior to doing so.

Families enrolling 2 or more children in the Youth Conservatory are eligible for a family discount of 2.5% off their total tuition.  Families enrolling 3 or more children will receive 5% off their total tuition.

The Youth Conservatory reserves the right to terminate a child’s enrollment at any time for reasons consistent with the best interest of the YC.  In such a case, a pro rated portion of the tuition is refunded.

For the safety of children enrolled in the program, all students under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult while participating in any Youth Conservatory activity on the Utah State University campus.  Additionally, parental involvement in the student’s lessons and at-home practicing is critical to the success of the training.
