All new international students enrolling in an Independent Study Program for the first time are subject to a one-time, non-refundable registration fee when submitting the International Student Registration Form (this fee is a fee paid to Peridance only, and is not associated in any way with the fees required to apply for an F-1 visa).

TUITION FEES

Tuition Fees (Programs Beginning Before March 1st, 2023)

Tuition Fees (Programs Beginning On or After March 1st, 2023)

All students (domestic and international) beginning programs of study on, or after, March 1st, 2023 are subject to the following tuition fees:



Please be advised that international students will be required to provide financial evidence as part of the application process demonstrating that they have sufficient personal funding and/or funding from a sponsor to cover both the tuition fees outlined above (minus any scholarships awarded by Peridance), as well as the estimated living expenses for their program as listed below:



These estimated living expenses are provided for the purposes of issuing students an I-20 only and are not a fee paid to Peridance. All students are required to find their own living accommodations and pay for their own living expenses, which may result in real-world expenses that are higher or lower than what is estimated. Students who are not able to demonstrate financial capabilities to cover their tuition and estimated living expenses will not be eligible to receive an I-20 from Peridance.



TUITION PAYMENT

Domestic Students International Students
Students enrolling in either the 6-Month Independent Study Program course or the 12-Month Independent Study Program course are expected to pay half of their tuition balance when completing the Domestic Student Enrollment Form. Students in the 3-Month Independent Study Program course are expected to pay their full tuition balance when completing the Domestic Student Enrollment Form. Students can make this minimum payment via card directly on the Domestic Student Enrollment Form or, via a non-card payment method (i.e. check, wire transfer, ACH transfer, etc.) by following the appropriate directions noted in the form checkout.

In all cases, students are expected to make their remaining tuition payment (if applicable) by their program start date, unless they are eligible for, and approved for, a payment plan as outlined in the "Payment Plan Informational Handout" HERE. If the student is not applying for a payment plan, they will receive an invoice from the Peridance Office via Stripe for their remaining tuition balance (along with a payment instructions email for those wishing to pay via a non-card payment method) no later than two weeks prior to their program start date. Students who do not pay their tuition in full by their program start date and have not applied for, and been approved for, a payment plan, will not be allowed to take class until their tuition has been paid in full.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships are considered on a case-by-case basis and are extremely limited for new students at this time. Students who wish to be considered for a scholarship should submit the Peridance Scholarship Application Form HERE along with the $50 non-refundable scholarship application fee. Please be advised, however, that submission of this form does not guarantee that a scholarship will be offered. Continuing students will be considered for scholarships based on the availability of funding and ongoing evaluation by the IND Program Coordinator and applicable Master Teacher during the student's program of study. For more inquiries about scholarships for the Independent Study Program, please contact the IND Program Coordinator at training@peridance.com.



VACATION

All Independent Study Program students have the following number of vacation weeks built-in to the cost of their program. Students may use this built-in vacation at any point during their program, except for the first and last months of their program, during which students are not allowed to use their built-in vacation (students are also discouraged from using their vacation during the final week of Performance Workshop months or during evaluation weeks). To request a vacation, students must complete a Vacation Request Form for any vacation weeks that they wish to use for an upcoming month no later than the 25th of the previous month (for example, a student wishing to take a vacation week in May should submit their Vacation Request Form for their May vacation no later than April 25th). During study weeks, students are expected to study a full-time course load of 18 hours per week.




REFUND POLICIES

Domestic Students International Students
Students who choose to withdraw from their program more than six weeks prior to the program start date as listed on their registration form will receive a full refund, minus the $50 registration fee, $300 tuition deposit, and any applicable fees based on the method of refund*. Students who choose to withdraw from their program less than six weeks prior to the program start date as listed on their registration form will receive a 50% tuition refund within 30 days of the withdrawal date, minus the $50 registration fee, $300 tuition deposit, and any applicable fees based on the method of refund*. If a student elects to withdraw from their program after their program start date has passed, the student will be eligible to have their unused tuition converted into a credit to be used for drop-in classes at the studio for up to two years, however no refund will be issued in such cases.

* Refunds issued by wire transfer will incur a $50 wire transfer fee charge. Refunds issued by card will incur a 5% charge. There is no additional fee for issuing refunds by check. Refunds by check may either be mailed or picked up in-person at the studio.

Domestic Student COVID-19 Refund Policy



Due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 world health pandemic, Peridance rules and regulations are subject to change. In the event of a school closure due to COVID-19, Peridance will continue programming online. No refunds will be given for programming changes due to COVID-19 such as, but not limited to, classes shifted from in-person to online distance learning, substitute teachers, and any school closure due to a positive test result. If Peridance must cancel programming due to COVID-19, Peridance will issue credit for future programming. No refunds will be given in such circumstances.











The international student registration fee paid with the International Student Registration Form is non-refundable.

Refunds on tuition will only be issued in the event that a student has been denied an F-1 visa at their local U.S. Embassy or Consulate, has been denied entry into the country by U.S. Customs & Border Protection prior to their program start date, or has had their change of status request denied by USCIS. In such instances, Peridance must receive official documentation of the visa application denial, refused entry, or change of status denial before a refund will be issued. Absolutely no refund will be given for any other reason than the ones listed above once the student has been issued their I-20, or, in the case of transfer students, after the transfer release date. If a student wishes to change their program length after Peridance has already issued the student an I-20, the student will not be owed a refund for any surplus tuition paid, however a Peridance credit may be kept on file for any tuition paid that is not applied to the student's program. This credit may be used either towards a future Peridance program, or to take classes as a drop-in student at the studio.

If a refund is due, it will be issued either by check or by wire transfer to the original party that made the tuition payment. All refunds will be issued for the tuition amount paid minus a 10% administrative processing fee. Those wishing to receive their refund via wire transfer will be charged an additional $50 fee to cover the outgoing wire transfer charges incurred by Peridance. For students who have been admitted with reduced or waived application fees, the amount of the registration fee ($350 USD) will be deducted from the amount of the tuition already paid before a refund is issued.

International Student COVID-19 Refund Policy



Due to the unpredictable nature of the COVID-19 world health pandemic, Peridance rules and regulations are subject to change. In the event of a school closure due to COVID-19, Peridance will continue programming online. No refunds will be given for programming changes due to COVID-19 such as, but not limited to, classes shifted from in-person to online distance learning, substitute teachers, and any school closure due to a positive test result. If Peridance must cancel programming due to COVID-19, Peridance will issue credit for future programming. No refunds will be given in such circumstances.
