Each student must complete a registration form and remit required deposit or payment in full to secure class registration. Any balance due must be paid before classes/lessons commence.
Every student’s account must be current in order to register for classes/lessons; we reserve the right to suspend classes/lessons for non-payment of tuition.
Payments may be made by cash, check or the following credit cards: MasterCard, Visa, Discover. We reserve the right to charge a $25 fee for payments refused by a student’s financial institution.
Payment plans are available for the Fall and Spring sessions. The Payment Plan is not offered during the Summer Session to students unless they have a previous agreement with the Cape Symphony.
To qualify, students and/or the parents or guardians of students must set up a payment plan and submit 25% of the total amount due prior to the first class or lesson. There is an additional $30 fee for this service. Subsequent payment amounts and due dates are outlined in the agreement and due as stipulated in the agreement.
Non-Refundable Registration Fee
There is a $30 non-refundable registration fee per student per academic year, with a $50 maximum per family. This fee is reduced to $10 per class during the summer trimester.
Registration fees are waived for students ages 65 and up as a senior discount.
The registration fee will only be refunded if the Cape Symphony cancels a class.
Class Cancelation Refunds & Credits
The Cape Symphony reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment. In this case, we will issue a full refund, including registration fee. If an instructor is unable to attend a scheduled session for any reason, he/she will offer a make-up session within the current semester whenever possible. If an instructor is unable to schedule a make-up session, the Cape Symphony will issue a credit for a future lesson/class to the student’s account.
Students with lapsed attendance from lessons or classes are obligated to pay for the remainder of the semester. No refunds or credits will be issued for missed lessons or classes. In the event of an extreme situation, please contact the Director of Engagement.
Students who are withdrawing from a class must submit a written Notice of Withdrawal to the Cape Symphony’s Barnstable campus. The Cape Symphony will issue a full refund, minus the registration fee, to students withdrawing at least 5 business days prior to the first class. The Cape Symphony will not issue refunds to students withdrawing after a class commences; however, we will send students a letter confirming a tax-deductible donation equal to the amount of unused tuition.
