1. Tuition fees and frequency of lessons:
Tuition fees are charged on a monthly basis and will be auto-deducted prior to commencement of the first lesson each month. Under normal circumstances, monthly tuition fees would cover your course description whether it be 4 x 30 min, 4 x45 min, or 4 x 60 min lessons per month. Lessons in the fifth week (29th, 30th, and 31st) of each month are not mandatory, however, should you wish to have a 5th monthly lesson (when applicable) it can be arranged as preferred with additional payment.
- Security Deposit – A one-month security deposit is required to secure your lesson time(s) and teacher. Aureus Academy requires one-month (4 lessons) advanced notice for termination of lessons. This security deposit will be refunded to you with one-month (4 lessons) notice or will serve in- lieu of any remaining unpaid lessons within the one-month (4 lesson) notice. Should lessons be terminated without a 30 day advanced notice, the security deposit will be forfeited.
2. Missed lessons:
For individual lessons there will be no make up for any cancellation of lessons by the student unless given sufficient notice (a minimum of 24 hours) and supporting documents, such as a Medical Certificate. The lesson will be made up at the discretion of management and availability of the teacher. Should the instructor need to cancel a lesson, it will be replaced. This replacement will be re-scheduled accordingly to accommodate the time schedule of both parties.
- Make Up Lessons – All make up lessons must be completed within the 30-day notice of withdrawal, otherwise, they are forfeited at the end of the notice.
3. Student Absence Policy:
Tuition fees will be due as per normal, regardless of scheduling changes or student absence. For extended periods of absence and advanced scheduling changes, Aureus Academy will arrange make up lessons either before or after the period of absence. All efforts will be made to ensure that the student receives their entitled makeup lessons with their respective teacher. Compliance with our Student Absence policy allows the student to guarantee their time slot, and their respective teacher during periods of extended absence.
4. Public Holidays and Annual Leave:
There will be lessons conducted on the following public holidays (Good Friday, Vesak Day, Hari Raya Puasa, Hari Raya Haji, and Deepavali). If the lesson falls on a public holiday that we are closed, it will be deducted from the lesson fees or credited, if billed, to the following month.
Students must make the effort to come on time for their lessons. There will not be any make up for any time lost. Strict punctuality is also expected of the instructor, however, should the instructor be late time will be made up accordingly.
Aureus Academy reserves the right to dismiss any student due to frequent absences, disciplinary reasons, overdue tuition payments or parental non-compliance with policies and procedures listed here. Informing an instructor of intent to withdraw, or not attending classes, does not constitute withdrawal from lessons. Should a student wish to terminate his or her lessons, Aureus Academy must be given 30-day notice via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or the deposit and make up lessons are forfeited.
