Too often we receive late payments that unfortunately we cannot overlook as our creditors will not do the same for us. The school has financial obligations of its own to meet so we ask you to please be prompt about your payments. 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 and graciously include your late fee in your payment.    ~Thank you!

 

We reserve the right to cancel any class with insufficient registration. Classes may be combined,
student may placed in a comparable class, or a full refund will be given
