TUITION & FEES
Tuition is due the first of each month: We are based on a monthly billing system. Class Tuition is billed on a 12-month payment scale based on an average number of classes per month. Thus, tuition is the same each month regardless of how many lessons there are in any given month.
You have several payment options...
1) Fill out the Credit Card Authorization Form and your monthly tuition will then be automatically charged each month on the first.
2) Online using PayPal, Visa, Mastercard (debit), Venmo.
3) Mail checks to IEDC 2050 E. La Cadena Dr, Stes. E/F, Riverside, CA 92507
made out to IECB.
4) Over night drop slot located on our front door. Please do not mail or leave cash in the drop slot.
We do not mail out billing statements. Parents are responsible for the information that is posted on social media the "BAND" App and our website.
Dropping a class:
Students are registered and her/his place is held in class for the entire school year, from the date the registration form is signed through the year. Unless the student is removed from class by having a parent or guardian sign and date the “Class Withdrawal Form”, the parent or guardian will be responsible for tuition payments throughout the year.
Withdrawing from a class(es)
The only way to withdraw from a class is to complete the “Class Withdrawal Form”. This will stop the billing process. If the customer does not give this written notice, monthly tuition will still be processed through auto-pay for the next month’s classes and they will be financially responsible for the amount. IF YOU ATTEND ANY PORTION OF THE MONTH, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FULL MONTHLY TUITION. Calling, speaking to someone, telling a teacher or e-mail are not accepted as forms of withdrawal.
It is strongly advised to complete the form 4 weeks (one month) in advance so that we can cancel your automatic payment with the bank. Classes already paid for above and beyond the 4-week withdrawal notice will remain as a credit on your account for up to two years to be used on future tuition. The 4-week notice begins from the date the withdrawal form is signed and dated at the bottom of registration form. Classes or payment from the 4-week withdrawal notice are not transferable to another student or sibling.
Refund Policy: We have a strict NO REFUND policy. That includes Tuition, costumes, competition and travel fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. No credits or refunds for any reason. This applies to our Competition Dance team as well. If for ANY reason a dancer drops a piece due to ANY reason, that dancer's parents/guardians must issue a FULL refund to the other students that are affected by their departure. For example; Duo's, trio's & groups.
A $30.00 late fee will be applied if paid after the 3rd of the month. We offer online, in person, and night drop box for payments.
Students are evaluated often to ensure correct level placement. First placement for the year reflects our presumption that the student will maintain proper attendance and work ethic in class to progress. In the event that the faculty believes that a student would receive more suitable training in a different level, the student and parents will be notified and the student will be moved. Students whose schedule does not suit their level, will be placed in a lower level. Attitude, attendance, focus & progression assure that a student will move through levels in a timely fashion, as deemed by their instructors.
Each year students from across the country are selected to participate in a 2 week summer intensive featuring extensive ballet technique, and pilates at
Plexis Pilates Studio.Payment options, plans are accepted. (no audition required)
