What are Flex-Credits, and how can I use them?
Your Membership/Tuition is divided evenly over the year so your monthly payment will always be the same. You’ll get 4 free lesson credits as a buffer for the inevitable missed classes due to cancelations. Student’s can make up their lessons with Flex-Credits throughout the year. You may use Flex-Credits as long as you provide at least 24 hours notice to the studio or teacher.
If you cancel your membership, all unused flex-credits will expire.
Lessons purchased as part of your monthly membership should be used within the month purchased and expire on the last day of the month.
As long as you provide 24-hours notice, you may opt to use one of four flex-credits outside of the month of the original scheduled lesson. Flex-Credits expire at the end of the calendar year.
If you need to pause your membership, notification must be made prior to the 18th of the month. You may pause for up to 1 month. After 30 days, you will be automatically billed again for your lesson membership. Changes after the 18th will have one additional billing cycle before any change can go into effect.
(e.g. If a student will be pausing their membership for the month of December, the student must inform Michael Karl Studio before November 18th that they will be pausing their membership. If no change has been made, they will be billed in-full for December tuition.)
If you need to cancel or terminate your membership, you may do so at anytime. Cancelation of your membership made after the 18th will have one additional pay period and will not go into effect until the following month. Please inform Michael Karl Studio on or before the 18th by email [email@example.com]. Changes after the 18th will have one additional billing cycle before any change can go into effect.
(e.g. If a student will be terminating their membership for the month of December, the student must inform Michael Karl Studio before November 18th that they will be terminating their membership. If no change has been made, they will be billed in-full for December tuition.)
Please note, If a student wishes to re-enroll after termination of their lesson membership, they will be responsible for another $50 registration fee. There is no registration fee associated with students who choose to pause instead of canceling their membership.
Please note that Michael Karl Studio requires active students to keep a valid a card will be kept on file.
