How to Register:
Fill out the online registration form. An instructor will contact you to set up a weekly lesson time and location. Each student must pay a $25 registration fee to help with administrative costs of the program. If a family is enrolling more than one student, a family registration of $40 will be charged. Lesson payments should be submitted after a weekly lesson time has been set. Email the CAA Administrative Assistant with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
A completed enrollment form and tuition payment is needed before instruction may begin. Penalty fees: $25 returned check/$20 late fee if tuition is not received by due dates. The balance of the previous term must be received before new term enrollment is allowed.
Individual lessons are scheduled by the studio teacher. Early registrants and continuing students have the first choice of lesson times.
Missed Individual Lessons:
All lessons cancelled by instructors will be rescheduled, if at all possible. Lessons canceled by the student (unless for extenuating circumstances agreed upon by student and instructor) will not be rescheduled, credited, or refunded; the student will be charged for all missed lessons.
No instruction will be scheduled during Thanksgiving Break and Spring Break (see JBU academic calendar for specific dates). CAA faculty may elect whether or not to teach on other JBU holidays as schedules allow.
Tuition will be fully refunded for withdrawal prior to the beginning of instruction (as a courtesy, students needing to withdraw are asked to do so at least two business days before the lesson/class is to begin). After instruction has begun, no refunds will be given on lump sum payments. Withdrawing students electing to pay monthly or in two payments will continue to pay until the semester balance has been paid in full.
Due to busy faculty schedules, students who arrive late cannot be guaranteed full lesson times. Teachers will wait ten minutes for late students; students are asked to do the same for teachers. Shortened lessons due to faculty tardiness will be made up.
If the Siloam Springs Public Schools are closed, CAA is likely closed. In the case of sudden severe weather, instructors will make every effort to contact students individually if lessons are cancelled. Students are also welcome to contact the instructors. Inclement weather notices will also be posted here and on JBU's Facebook page.
