When you provide your digital signature as part of the registration process, you are agreeing to pay the fees as specified below.
Fees (or the first installment, if paying by installments) are due by the end of the third rehearsal of the group you are joining. For those that join later than the third rehearsal, fees will be charged pro-rata.
If fees are not paid by the deadline, an additional late charge of $25 will be added, unless you have made other arrangements with SMYOC's Executive Director. If you continue to fail to pay, the student will no longer be permitted to participate in the program.
After payment is made, no portion of the fees paid or outstanding will be refunded or cancelled in the event of absence, withdrawal, or dismissal.
It is our policy that no student be discouraged from participating due to financial hardship. Apply for need-based financial assistance here.
