Registration & Tuition Info

Registration

Registration for the upcoming semester is completed through the Belmont Academy office, and registration forms and fees are submitted directly to the Academy office each semester.

Academy staff will place students with available instructors. Individual lesson times are scheduled by the instructor. Every effort will be made to find mutually agreeable lesson times. Please do not register until you have spoken with the office and one of our placement coordinators to confirm a lesson time.

Important! Registration forms and payment are due on or before the first lesson.

There are two registration and tuition payment options:

Mail Your Registration Form: Download and print the registration form and mail to the address on the form. Tuition payment can be made by check or money order, made payable to BELMONT UNIVERSITY and mailed with the registration form or delivered to the Academy office.

OR

Register Online: Register online and pay tuition using a credit card. Please do not register online until you have spoken with the office and one of our placement coordinators to confirm a lesson time.

  • Please note that each child or each set of lessons must be registered separately. A $5.00 service charge is applied to each online registration/payment. This charge is not profit for the Academy, and is part of the fee charged for processing of the credit card.

Tuition for the semester is due on or before the first lesson.

Tuition will not be refunded after the third week of classes except due to illness or injury with written documentation from a physician. Refunds will also not include lessons already received. All refund requests must be requested directly to the office. Tuition will be refunded for the number of weeks remaining in the semester less a $25.00 fee for processing. See the policies page for more information.
