FAQ Financial Questions Regarding Weekly Payments
Do you offer payment plans?
We give students the choice to pay in full, partial, or have weekly payments debited from a credit card or bank account.
When are weekly payments due?
Tuition payments are due every Friday. If your weekly tuition isn’t paid by Monday, it will be charged to the card or bank account on file.
If I miss a week, do I still have to pay for the week I missed?
If your child cannot attend any class, tuition is still due for that instruction week.
What is the late fee policy?
The student cannot participate in any DBFAA courses or activities until the student‘s account has been brought to a current status.
Do I have to have a credit card on file?
To ensure that tuition is current for every student attending DBFAA, we now require that each family not paying for the entire session upfront have a credit card on file with our Business Office.
Is my banking information secure?
When you place a card on file with us, your information will be kept safe and secure. We will only charge your card for the amount you have authorized for weekly tuition.
What’s the purpose of the registration fee?
This fee helps offset the administrative cost of setting up your student in our class-management system.
What if you need to cancel?
To cancel your enrollment, you must notify the Business Office via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) at least five days before the Monday you would like to stop attending. Please include your child's name and reason for cancellation in the email.
