    Champion Studio Policies

    Welcome to Champion Studio! Our programs and professional staff combine to offer your child a positive and enjoyable learning experience. This information will help acquaint you with our policies and procedures. Please keep this information sheet for policy reference.
    Registration Fees: There is a $35.00 registration fee for each student. This fee is non-transferable and non-refundable. An additional
    $15.00 service fee is required for each time a student drops and later re-enrolls.
    Tuition: Tuition is due and payable the first of each month, and all monthly payments are non-transferable and non-refundable. No exceptions please. Students must be registered and have paid tuition before attending class. A registered student will be charged for their reserved place in a class until the end of the applicable term unless they turn in written notice of cancellation. Students will be charged for the month in which the cancellation occurs unless cancellation occurs before the first scheduled monthly meeting of that class.
    Tuition is based on an annual schedule and calculated as four one hour classes per month for example if you are registering for a class that meets once a week, 8 one hour classes for that class that meets twice a week and so on. Some months have additional classes when there are five weeks in the month. You are not charged extra in the months that have additional classes but these classes are taken into consideration for holiday closures and used to insure the average classes per month for the annual session. In addition, during recital time extra rehearsals contribute to insure you receive the correct average number of classes and many times exceed the average calculated for
    tuition. If you have any questions concerning this, please ask front desk for a reference of classes for the year.

    Late Payments: a $15.00 late fee will be charged on all tuition paid after the 15th of each month. All Past due tuition balances that are not paid will be turned over to small claims court for collections. You will be charged court costs and legal fees should this become necessary.
    ⦁ Make-Up Lessons: The instructor or front desk will advise you as to the days and times of make-up classes (a students regular class time cannot be used as make-up class and the student must be actively enrolled in order to make-up missed classes.) Absences must be made-up within one month of the absence, otherwise they are forfeited. No tuition adjustments will be made for missed classes or forfeited make-­ up lessons. Additional rehearsals will count toward make-up classes.

    While Champion does all in their power to ensure the safety of its students and to avoid conditions that could cause accident, it is not possible for Champion to guarantee absolutely safety. However, Champion in no way concludes from this that strict safety rules are not of the utmost importance. They absolutely are- at all times – in all places.
    Champion only declares that not all accidents are foreseeable, even with the best safety precautions. Therefore, Champion has developed a release form which compiles ERISA requirements. All participants must read and sign this form in order to enroll in such classes. Thank you for your patience and understanding and may all students get the very most out of their classes!
