I Don't Understand Your Monthly Tuition Plan
Your monthly tuition is processed automatically on the same date each month (this date is generally the anniversary of the first date that you attended). Tuition will run on that date each month for as long as you are with us. Although we are processing your tuition once a month, it does not necessarily pay for that given month or for a specific session in our schedule. So, what does it pay for?
Well, the easiest way to understand our process is to imagine that you'll be with us for an entire year.
The monthly tuition covers 4 weeks of classes each month. Twelve months of payments times four credits equals 48 weeks of classes. Because there are roughly 52 weeks in a year, there are roughly 4 weeks per year that are not accounted for in our monthly tuition.
So, as you can see, you're slowly getting behind each month in your payments. But we do this on purpose! Why?
Well, we assume that, for the average student, we will end up cancelling at least 4 classes every year (e.g. holidays, weather, emergencies, technical malfunctions, space monsters invading the city, etc.). Because of this, the number of credits we charge you generally matches evenly with the number of classes on our schedule.
If a situation arises where you become too far ahead or too far behind on credits, we will contact you to make adjustments to your tuition as necessary. For example, people who come on Sundays get hit with a lot of holidays; people who come on Wednesdays, not so much. We're keeping an eye on this every month so that you can be sure you're never paying too much or getting too far behind on your tuition.
