 Class deposits:
As a general rule class registrations will not be confirmed without payment in full. However, some classes include a deposit option as indicated in the class listing, in which case you may reserve a spot in class by paying the deposit amount shown.
Balance is due one month before class.
• Deposit is refundable, less a $30 processing fee, up to the “balance due” date; non-refundable after the due date. 
• If the balance is not paid by the due date, you risk losing your spot in class.
• Balance due may be paid with a check via snail mail, or by credit card over the phone.

Class Confirmation:

 You will receive a class confirmation via email. If you do not have an email address, you will receive a snail mail confirmation.
Please note that your class registration will not be confirmed without full payment or a deposit (where applicable).

Materials Fees:
Many classes have materials fees in addition to the tuition. These are identified in the class listing and are usually paid with the tuition payment, however in some cases materials fees are paid directly to the instructor at class time (check the class listing).
