Online Payment Info:
All online payments MUST be done through the Parent Portal. Making payments online through the parent portal: please note that the memo section is for your reference only. You cannot place orders or send a message to me by filling in the memo section as it does not flag me to let me know that there is a message. I am totally unaware of what is in the memo section unless I go into your parent portal and look for it!
Fee Payment info:
Payment of dance fees guarantee a place in class for your child for the month. Your first months payment is due upon registration and on the first day of each month thereafter. Your account will be considered late as of the close of business on the the 5th day of each month. A late charge of $10.00 will be added, to any remaining balance on your account, at 9:00 p.m. on the 5th day of each month. Fees are due on or before this date, even if the studio is closed prior to and including the 5th or your child is absent prior to and including the 5th. Neither the fees nor late charges will be waived because a student misses a class. (However, an out of town emergency or extended illness of the student will be taken into consideration.) Acceptable forms of payment: cash, check, or money order taken at the studio, online credit card or bank account payments via the Parent Portal .
The August dance fees will be pro-rated as classes are not held for a full month. Once you have registered & enrolled in classes, you will receive a statement showing the pro-rated amount for the month of August, Recital Fee, and Costume fee.
A monthly statement will be sent to you via e-mail ONLY. Your statement will reflect any balances due, late charges, and the amount due for the next month. Also, any upcoming dates of events and/or information will be e-mailed with your statement. All information/notices will also be posted on the bulletin board, in the waiting room. Please check often to stay informed!
There are several ways to make your payment:
- your class time--place in fee box in waiting room. (Cash payments should be placed in an envelope with your child's full name on it.)
- by mail to 935 Industrial Rd, Suite B, Emporia, KS 66801 (Do not send cash in the mail!) Please keep in mind when mailing, that the payment must arrive by 9:00 p.m. on the 5th. I do not go by postmark as most of the time it is not legible.
- Pay directly to your account with any major credit card or bank account from the parent portal. Click Parent Portal button in the menu bar at top of page.
- AutoPay: Setting up recurring payments is EASY (No more forms to fill out!!). Click Parent Portal in the menu bar above, log in to your account, click the Enroll in Auto Pay button, fill out your credit card info, click Pay and you're set. All recurring payments are withdrawn on the 1st day of each month and will be for any balance due on your account. Additional charges on your account for costumes, will be withdrawn on the deadline date for that particular order. You will still receive a monthly statement each month, showing what amount will be taken out. Please note, if you set up the auto pay after the first of the month, it will not automatically pay THAT month. It will not withdraw until the 1st of the next month. You must be set up prior to the month that you would like to start the Auto Pay.
Those paying in cash--a cash receipt will be emailed to you. Cash payments should be for the correct amount, as extra cash is not kept at the studio. Cash payments received, for more than your fee amount, will be credited to the next month.
Those accounts past due upon the 10th day of the month, the student will not be allowed to participate in class, until the account is paid in full, unless prior arrangements have been made with me. If your account balance is under $10, you may pay the balance with your next month fees.
Paying Ahead: when you make an overpayment to your account, it will show as a credit on your account until the next posting of charges. I charge dance fees to accounts on the 25th of each month.
The fee policy remains the same for classes held during the summer. Fees are not adjusted for students who are absent because of summer activities (ie. swim lessons, ball games, Recreation trips, etc.)
