Contracts are due within two weeks of issue. The $500.00 deposit previously paid with the Intent to Enroll form will serve as the non-refundable $500.00 due with the contract.
 
If you select the Semester, 9 Month, or 12 Month Payment Plan, you 
are required to purchase the Tuition Refund Plan (TRP) for $200.00. This fee is non-refundable and will be due with the contract. If you select a Single payment, the TRP is optional, however, it is only available to purchase at the time of contract; it cannot be purchased at a later date. A detailed description of the Tuition Refund Plan will be provided in the contract.
 
Please be reminded that the deposit and TRP fee are non-refundable.
