At the beginning of each academic quarter, students who are registered in a course that has a fee attached to it will be charged and billed for that fee in addition to normal tuition. The course fee is subject to the same billing and collection process as tuition. Course fees in the Department of Dance are used for studio maintenance and upkeep, musicians, musical instruments and equipment, and special guests that relate directly to your courses. If you drop a course by the 14th calendar day of the quarter, the Course Fee is automatically cancelled from your account. If the course is dropped after the 14th calendar day, the Course Fee remains on your account. The Department of Dance does not give refunds on course fees for courses dropped after the 14th calendar day of the quarter. Students need to make every effort to solidify their Department of Dance class schedule well before the end of the second week of the quarter.
