tuition refunds

If you leave at any point during a trimester, for any reason, you are still responsible for paying tuition for that trimester. If you have paid the full season tuition, MYS will issue a refund minus any applicable discount(s) for additional family members or student referrals, and a $25.00 processing fee. No refunds are made once the first rehearsal of a trimester begins.
