TERRA'S MONEY MESSAGE:
REGISTRATION FEE: The Registration Fee holds your spot until the class begins, One week before class begins you may pay in full or begin monthly payments. Your charter may provide a purchase order as a commitment to pay after classes have begun. Your registration fee can not be paid by instructional funds from your charter and is not refundable.
If you do not register and pay the registration fee, you will be surprised to find that the class is sold out, and the teacher is not prepared for your student. A purchase order is not enough to consider yourself registered. The purchase order from your charter does not give us any contact information for you, tell us specifically which class you desire, or include the signed Terms and Conditions document. A purchase order is not real money until it is followed up by a check from your charter school. You are responsible for payment if the charter defaults for any reason.
The registration fee guarantees that potential students will consider which courses they need carefully, prevents spots from being held unnecessarily and gives the teacher accurate information from which to plan their classes. The registration fee is not deductible from the tuition nor is it included.
