Registration Policies – Online Classes* 2023-24

*These are the policies for all course registrations, unless otherwise noted in the class description.

CLASS REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY

IF NOTICE OF CANCELLATION IS GIVEN:

  • Up to 7 days before the first class begins: 100% refund MINUS cancellation fee of $25 per class per student.
  • Between 7 days prior to the beginning of the first class meeting and up to the start of the second class meeting: 75% of tuition refunded, MINUS the $25 cancellation fee per class per student.
  • After the start of the second class meeting: No refunds given.
  • Should a family using a PO cancel course enrollment, the Purchase Order will be billed to the charter subject to this refund/cancellation policy.
  • To give notice of cancellation, please email classes@carriershellcurriculum.com.

Spring 2024: the PO and first installment in private pay course payment due date is Friday, December 15, 2023. To hold a course enrollment space, payment will need to be received by this deadline.

The tuition price is listed. Classes may offer a discount for families that pay privately.

USING CHARTER FUNDS

PURCHASE ORDER INFORMATION

Purchase Order instructions can be found at the bottom of each class description page.

Fall 2023: Due to stipulations from charter schools surrounding the usage of Purchase Orders (POs), POs must be received by 1-week prior to the first class meeting. If they are not received by this time, we will let you know and you will need to pay privately to remain in the course.

Spring 2024: PO and private pay course payment deadline is Friday, December 15, 2023. To hold course enrollment, all spring POs need to be received by this deadline.

REFUNDING DEPOSITS

A deposit is required to hold an enrollment spot for families paying with charter funds. As long the family is enrolled and in good standing, the deposit will be refunded when the Purchase Order is received. If a family drops the class prior to a Purchase Order being put in place, the deposit will not be refunded.

Please CAREFULLY read our CLASS REFUND/CANCELLATION POLICY above. Purchase Orders for cancelled or dropped classes will be billed subject to the cancellation policies above.

RESPONSIBLE PARTY

The student’s family is ultimately the responsible party for tuition.

If a family leaves their charter at any point, and/or the charter does not pay tuition, the family is responsible for any unpaid balances — including balances created by cancelled POs. If a charter school will not pay fees associated with course cancellation (as outlined in cancellation policy above), the family is responsible for fees associated with dropping a class.

Likewise, families who pay privately are responsible for the whole amount of class tuition for each semester, even if their student drops (subject to our refund schedule above). Paying in installments does not absolve families from the responsibility of semester tuition.

COURSE DURATION

Our class fees are per specified duration (number of weeks, semester, etc). They are not month-to-month, unless specified.

NEW! SPRING 2024 TUITION PAYABLE IN 3 INSTALLMENTS

TUITION INSTALLMENT TERMS

  1. December 15, 2023
  2. January 15, 2024
  3. February 15, 2024

NOTES:

  • Families may “leave a card on file,” which will be automatically charged on the 15th of each month.  (You won’t need to manually remit payment each month.)
  • Invoices will be emailed the 24th of each month, and due on the 15th.  Watch your email box for your Square invoice!
  • For your student to continue to attend class, payment must be current.
  • If for some reason a student drops the class, the family is responsible for payment in full of semester fees, subject to the refund schedule above.

PREFER TO PAY IN A LUMP SUM?

  • If you have a preference to pay in a lump sum, email this address to receive a link to pay all semester tuition at once.   Lump sum payments must be made by December 15, 2023, and because our fees are less (in this case), we give $5 off for lump sum payments.
