Registration and Payment Policy
Registration for all Kids and Teens Programs is processed through ASAPConnected. Payment for registered classes is required at the time of registration.

Please note: We will charge a $25.00 fee for any check returned to the Atlantic Acting School for insufficient funds. If more than one check is returned, personal checks from that student will no longer be accepted; payments will need to be made via cash, money order or credit card.

Refund Policy
$100 of all tuition is considered a non-refundable deposit.  You have until two weeks prior to the start date of class to withdraw and receive a partial refund. Should you need to withdraw, please contact education@atlantictheater.org.  Once classes begin, no refunds will be given.

Full-Time & Evening Conservatory Program Policies:

Once a student is accepted to our Full-Time or Evening Conservatory Program, he or she will sign a waiver and agree to the following policies. Failure to agree to the terms below will make a student ineligible to attend the program.

Waiver
All classes are taken at the student’s own risk and students waive any claim to the Atlantic Acting School for any injury or loss sustained while in class.

Attendance Policy
Students are considered absent if they are not in the classroom when the instructor closes the door at the beginning of class.

For Full-Time or Evening Conservatory, more than three absences in any class will result in dismissal from that class and more than three absences in any two classes will result in dismissal from the program. More than 15 cumulative absences will result in dismissal from the program.

Dismissal from Program
A student may be asked to leave the program at any time due to absences, lack of payment or reasons deemed necessary by the faculty or at the discretion of the School Administration. The Administration is not obligated to provide warning to a student before removing the student from the program.

Deferment Policy
Students seeking a deferment must submit a request to the Director of Admissions at least four weeks prior to the start date of the program. Deferments are granted for one year only and are valid for the program into which the student was initially accepted. Deposits are non-transferable and non-refundable even in the event of a deferral.

Grading Policy
Students will receive a written evaluation from your teachers at the end of each semester. The school administration takes evaluations as well as attendance records into account at the end of each semester when deciding whether or not a student is to be placed on probation or allowed to continue with the program.

Payment Policy
It is the student’s responsibility to be aware of payment due dates, to initiate communication with the Administration about payments, and to remit payments on time.

If a payment is late, students will receive a grace period of 7 days to immediately arrange for the outstanding payment. If payment is not received by the end of those 7 days, the outstanding balance will be assessed a $50 late fee.
