School of Richmond Ballet Policies & Information

Fall/Spring/Summer 2020-2021

 

Financial Information

SRB Annual Registration:

    1. Registration must be completed and tuition must be paid, either in full or 1st installment, prior to any student’s enrollment into class.  Any outstanding balance must be paid in full before a student may register.

A valid credit or debit card must be entered at the time of registration. Current balances will be charged automatically on the installment due date listed below.

    • There is a non-refundable $25.00 annual processing fee due with the first payment, per student, which will automatically be charged to the account.
    • A COVID-19 cleaning fee of $40 will be charged each installment.  Families who choose to pay in full will be charged a total of $120 for COVID-19 cleaning fees (a $40 discount for paying in full).
    • A 3% credit card surcharge will be added to every credit card transaction.
    • Any student with an unpaid balance by the 5th business day after the installment due date will not be permitted to attend class.
    • A limited amount of financial aid is available. Please see the section below titled Financial Aid.

 

SRB Tuition Payment:

    • Upon registration, all students and their parents/legal guardians are obligated to pay the agreed upon full tuition whether they remain enrolled in the program or not. Notwithstanding significant program changes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, tuition is non-refundable; nor pro-rated except in the case of a serious illness or injury documented by a doctor’s explanation.
    • School of Richmond Ballet tuition is set at affordable, competitive rates. Students enrolled for the year can pay their tuition in full at the time of registration, or in four equal installments. The first installment is due at the time of registration. For those who choose to pay in installments, a valid credit or debit card must be entered at the time of enrollment.  Current balances will be charged automatically on the installment due dates listed below.  Selecting the installment payment option does not lessen the legal obligation to pay the full year’s tuition. The installment payment schedule is as follows:

Fall/Spring:
1st Payment – Due at time of registration
2nd Payment – Due November 1, 2020
3rd Payment – Due February 1, 2021
4th Payment – Due April 1, 2021

Minds In Motion Ambassadors:
Minds In Motion Ambassadors will not be responsible for tuition in classes provided as part of the Minds In Motion Program. Ambassadors enrolling in any SRB classes should follow the financial section for School of Richmond Ballet.

Fee(s) and Delinquent Accounts:

    • In the event that a check is returned for insufficient funds, we will make a second attempt to deposit the check. Each time a check is returned for insufficient funds, a $35.00 returned check fee will be added to the student account.
    • A $25.00 late fee, per student, will be imposed on the fifth business day after a due date and on the first of each month for as long as your account is not current.
    • Should this account become delinquent and collection becomes necessary, the undersigned agrees to be additionally responsible for attorney’s fees of 33 1/3% of total delinquent balance and all applicable court costs incurred by School of Richmond Ballet. When using the automatic payment option, it is the responsibility of the payee to notify School of Richmond Ballet of changes to the credit card on file. If financial difficulties arise, please call 804.344.0906 and ask to speak with SRB Business Director, Susan Collet.
