Registration will be processed within two business days in the order received (Note: Summer 2019 registrations will be processed within 5 to 7 business days due to volume). Registrations are accepted as long as space is available or until the second time a class meets, whichever comes first. We will send you a receipt within two business days (5-7 business days for Summer 2019). You will also receive an email confirmation with class details approximately 3-4 weeks before class beings. If there are any concerns regarding your registration, we will contact you within two business days (5-7 business days for Summer 2019). We do not offer prorated tuition.
Once you have registered, please submit the SCT Media & Emergency Treatment/Liability Release for each of your students. You are free to re-submit this form anytime you feel you need to make changes to your media permissions or medical information, but this form will remain on file with us until the end of the school year, May 31, 2018 or May 31, 2019 if you submit it for a summer class. We will prompt you for an updated form starting each summer session.
Registration Fee: To secure space in a class, you must pay a non-refundable registration fee, which is included in the tuition price. Fees are $25 per class, $50 for full-day classes and camps, and $100 for CAST, Summer Season Shows, and Young Actor Institute. Two weeks before class starts (or one month before CAST), Summer Season rehearsal or YAI training begins, tuition must be paid in full or a payment plan must be arranged.
Attendance Policy: We expect students to attend every day of the class in which they enroll, except in the case of illness or emergency.
Classes and Camps: If you cancel your registration after it's been processed but at least two weeks before the class begins, we will refund tuition less the registration fee:
- $25 for a single class
- $50 for full day classes and camps
Summer Season, YAI, and CAST: If you cancel your registration after it's been processed but at least one month before class or rehearsal begins, we will refund tuition less the registration fee of $100.
If you cancel your registration with less than the required notice, no refund will be given. Any tuition paid for the canceled class, minus the registration fee, becomes a credit which you may use towards either Drama School tuition through the current school year, or tickets for the current Mainstage season. Any lesser tuition costs from the new class will not be refunded. If we do not receive prior cancellation notice and you do not attend the first day of class, no refund or credit will be given.
You may switch from one class to another more than two weeks before the class begins without incurring an additional registration fee. If you switch less than two weeks before the beginning of the class you must pay the additional registration fee ($25 for a single class, $50 for a full-day class or camp). In the summer, we offer an Early Bird price for registrations completed by May 31st. If you register before, but switch after May 31st, you will pay the post-May 31st regular tuition price for the new class.
If you decide after attending the first day of class that you do not want to continue, let us know before the second class and we will refund your tuition payment (minus the registration fee). After the second day of class, we will not make any tuition or enrollment adjustments. This policy does not apply to YAI or Summer Season shows.
Cancellation by SCT: We reserve the right to cancel a class if enrollment is insufficient. Any tuition paid will be refunded in full, including the registration fee.
All class registrations are processed in the order they are received at the Drama School office. We will send you a receipt within five business days. You will also receive an email confirmation with class details approximately 3 - 4 weeks before your class starts. If the classes you requested are full, or if there are any other concerns regarding your registration, we will contact you within two business days.
Drama School Inclement Weather Policy
On days when Seattle Public Schools are in session, we will cancel our classes when Seattle Public Schools cancels theirs. We will not alter our class schedule if Seattle Public Schools implements weather delays. If SPS does early dismissal and after-school activities are canceled, then classes will be cancelled. On days when Seattle Public Schools are not in session, the call as to whether to cancel or not will be made at least three hours before the first class begins. The decision will remain in force for the entire day, regardless of changes in the weather or road conditions. For all inclement weather closures, we will not provide refunds. If there is snow on the roads at the end of a class that has not been canceled, we will do our best to provide extended care free of charge. For the safety of our students and teaching artists, it may be necessary to cancel classes when we are unable to fulfill the above conditions. In such cases, we reserve the right to cancel a class at any time.
Late Pick-up Policy
If you are more than 15 minutes late to pick up students from class, and we are not offering extended care at that time, you will be charged the following late fees:
$1.00 per minute for every minute you are late between 15 and 30 minutes after class has concluded. If you arrive more than 30 minutes late, fees increase to $3.00 per minute. Late fees are to be paid by cash, check, or credit card at the time of pick-up.
If we are offering extended care your child will be automatically enrolled and you will be responsible for the $12 fee.
Please call the office if you are running late: (206) 859.4040.
