Annual Membership Fee
ALL students are required to pay an annual membership fee. This fee covers insurance for each student and is valid from June 1st to May 31st of the following year or from time of registration to May 31st. The fee is $30.00 per student and is assessed June 1st of every year. If a student registers mid-year, the registration fee will be prorated (see below).

Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. Students who are registered and enrolled are automatically transferred to the next month’s class roster (please see “Dropping from the Program” for details regarding un-enrolling). If tuition is not received by the 7th of the month, a $10.00 late fee is incurred. If tuition is still not received by the 14th of the month, an additional $10.00 late fee will be applied to your account. Any accounts that remain delinquent going into the next month will result in automatic removal from the program. Shenandoah Tumblers, Inc. cannot be responsible for tuition payments that are late due to the US Postal System OR ANY OTHER SERVICE. All accounts that exceed 30 days delinquent, will be billed an additional 5% of the total balance each month until the account is paid in full. Payments need to be made in a timely manner, NO EXCEPTIONS. Once your account is paid in full, pending availability, you are welcome to return to your current class. A $25.00 service charge will be imposed on all PAYMENTS that are returned from our bank for non-payment.
