ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

1.         Any studio/teacher change must be discussed with the current teacher before the opening of the official registration period and enrollment with a new teacher.  Registration assistants will not be able to complete any registration for which the previous teacher has not been notified of a student’s intent to withdraw.  No studio changes will be made following the close of the two-week registration period.

2.         Music and supplies are not included in your Lawson Academy fees, so it is understood that students will be expected to purchase music as needed throughout the semester. Studio policies and information are available from individual teachers.

3.         Correct contact info for the parent or primary guardian (including active email address) must be provided at the time of registration. The Lawson Academy communicates via email and will send invoices and other important notifications in this manner.

FEES

1.          All outstanding balances from previous tuition fees must be paid in full prior to registration.

2.          Tuition fees are payable at the time of registration. A student may not attend lessons/classes until a payment is made.

A monthly interest fee of 1.5% will be charged on all outstanding balances after 30 days. Outstanding balances must be paid within 60 days after initial registration to avoid additional fees, collection, and/or suspension of lessons/classes.

- If customer wishes to enroll in a four-month auto-payment plan, we require both the customer’s social security number on file and a credit card set up in the customer’s online account to be charged monthly. Customers wishing to enroll in this payment plan must complete the Payment Plan Agreement.
