A pledge card from Fred Scroggs. Our local tuition policy gives back to the communities that helped start the school.
Full-time residents of the counties listed below are eligible for a 50% discount for any regular course on a space-available, stand-by basis. The discount may not be available for certain classes and does not apply to the cost of materials for a class. Local residents may choose to pay full tuition in order to receive a confirmed space, if one is available.
Students will be informed if a discounted space is available one week prior to the starting date of the course.
Local student cancellation/transfer policy: A $25 fee will be charged for any change in registration for local students on standby for a class. Once confirmed for a class, the regular cancellation fee applies.
