Late Payment Fee.  Any late payments after the tenth of the month, $15.  Director of Educational Services may waive up to one late payment if extraordinary circumstances exist.


Returned Item Fee.  Any payments returned from a financial institute, $25 plus any applicable late fees.  If two items or more are returned in an academic year the district will require a secured payment (money order or cashier’s check).


Ten percent discount for multiple students, applied to the highest tuition rates.  Ten percent discount applied if annual tuition is paid in advance.  There are no refunds available if tuition is paid in full for the year. 


The district will waive excess when being paid by the Arizona Department of Economic Security, but cannot waive required co-pays. 

  Methods of Payment

Payment may be made in the form of check, money order, or cash.  Cash payments should be given to the site director or community education business office.  The payer will be issued a receipt for cash payments.  Cash payments not posted to accounts will not be credited if the payer does not have a written receipt.  If a payment discrepancy occurs the payer will need to provide a copy of their payment receipt.

How Payments are Calculated

Payments are calculated on a daily rate for enrolled programs, and leveled over a ten month period, regardless of the number of day in a month. 

Available Discounts

Families with more than one child enrolled in a community education program will receive a ten percent discount.  Discounts will be applied to each child after the first child.  Discounts will always be applied to the highest tuition rate.  Families that pay the entire year of tuition in advance will be provided a 10% discount.  This option is not available for students who enroll in a program after March 1st.

Program Withdrawal

If a child(ren) needs to withdraw from a program, the parent/guardian must withdraw the child(ren) and they must inform the community education program.  This may be done by providing a written letter; contacting us via telephone; or completing a withdrawal form.  If a child is not withdrawn we will make the assumption that the child will still be attending and continue to bill for enrolled services.  Families may request a temporary stop of services for up to thirty (30) consecutive calendar days without having to reenroll their child.  You must notify us in writing.  Waivers will be granted for emergency reasons only, such as a family illness or other emergent matter.  If there is an active waiting list for the enrolled program(s) the waiver will not be granted, and tuition will need to be paid.
