Registration Policies

The Abrons Arts Center reserves the right to discontinue the enrollment of any student who does not comply with our policies.

ENROLLMENT
All classes and workshops are subject to minimum and maximum enrollment.

Individuals and families who have unpaid balances from previous sessions will not be able to register for a new semester until the unpaid balance is paid in full.

REGISTRATION FEE
There is a non-refundable $20 registration fee. This fee is charged per student per term unless the student has enrolled for a full year program.

AUDITS
Students may audit a group class before registering for that class. Students may not attend a second class within the Session unless they have registered. An auditing fee of $20 will be charged prior to auditing and a registration form must be filled out. The fee will be applied toward class tuition. The audit fee is not refundable.

MAKE-UP CLASSES
Classes will only be rescheduled if a class is canceled when a suitable substitute instructor cannot be found. Make up days for the spring term will be scheduled for May 20-25, 2014.

PAYMENT OPTIONS
The Abrons Arts Center provides a payment plan option for students unable to pay the tuition in its entirety at the time of enrollment. In addition to the $20 registration fee, 50% of the total tuition is due at time of registration. The balance will be due by March 11, 2014.

LATE PAYMENT FEES
All tuition payments must be made as scheduled. Unpaid balances will be charged a $30 late fee for the term.

MISSED CLASSES
The Abrons Arts Center will not provide refunds or credits for missed classes as a result of student illness, student emergencies, or for any unforeseeable circumstance beyond the Center’s control.

MAKE-UP CLASSES

DROPS + REFUNDS
All drops must be requested in writing using the Drop request Form and must be submitted to the Registration Office in person. There are no refunds or credits if the Drop Request form is received after the student’s third scheduled class. If a student drops a class after the dates listed or the student’s third scheduled class, the registrant will be charged for the entire session’s fees.

Before the start of classes:
Full payment (minus the registration fee) will be refunded when the Registration Office receives a completed Drop Request form by January 21, 2014.

After classes have begun:
A pro-rated refund will be processed when the Registration Office receives a completed Drop Request form by February 4, 2014.

All refunds will be paid through a check issued by Henry Street Settlement. The check will be issued in the name of the registrant and mailed to the address provided on the registration form. Please allow up to six weeks for receipt of your refund.

TUITION ASSISTANCE + WORK-STUDY
Tuition and work-study assistance is available each session for registered students who would otherwise not be able to afford to enroll. Applications are available through the Registration Office and due by the second class. The registrants’ most recent federal income tax return is required along with the application. Students who fail to regularly attend classes or withdraw from their class will be ineligible to receive future tuition assistance.

MEDIA RELEASE
