Students’ lessons and classes will be suspended if accounts fall behind in payment. Tuition credit or make-up lessons will not be given as a result of lessons missed due to suspension. You can pay tuition in installment payment plan, which allows payment in two installments during the semester without any charge. Please request the plan when registering.
