Policies
REGISTRATION
Registration is processed on a first come, first-served basis and will close when the maximum number of students have enrolled.  A waiting list will be maintained until the first session begins for programs that have closed due to full enrollment. Waitlisted registrants will be notified by email if a spot opens up.  Programs must meet a minimum number of registrants. There is no pro-rating for missed classes and there are no makeup classes.


PAYMENT
There are absolutely no refunds or credits given.  Students may not participate in class without full payment and a completed registration form each semester.
Alternate payment plans are available by prior arrangement with the registrar.  Post-dated checks for any unpaid balance must be submitted before the start of the first class. 


By participating in a CLOCKTOWER PLAYERS program, families accept responsibility for full payment of program fees.  Performance troupes fill up very quickly. In order to ensure your 2019-20 registration is accepted, payment must be received by the following dates:
