Registration Policy for 2016-2017 School Year
Huaxia Edison Chinese School
Online registration starts on May 15, 2016.
A registration is only completed after the payment is done using credit card or PayPal account through online PayPal system. School will not accept personal checks as payment this year to reduce registration workload. Any unpaid registration will be deleted by system on the following Tuesday after two weeks. For the Fall semester, ONLY full year registration option is allowed; for the Spring semester, half year registration is offered.
A late registration fee of $30 will be charged if the tuition and fees are not paid in full by August 14, 2016. This late registration fee will be increased to $50 at first day of fall semester (September 11, 2016).
For on-site registration, additional $30 manual processing fee will be assessed.
1. Tuition (per student per class)
Standard Chinese Class: $270 per school year (two semesters), or $155 per semester (excluding the $20 teaching materials or textbook fee which will be charges separately).
Ma Liping Class: $270 per school year, or $155 per semester (excluding the $60 textbook fee, which will be charged separately). No discount on tuition if no textbook is required.
CSL Class: $270 per school year, or $155 per semester (excluding the $60 textbook fee, which will be charged separately).
SAT/AP Class: $310 per school year ($40 textbook/material fee included).
Culture Class: Depending on the class, charges range from $160-250 per school year or $95 -135 per semester. For details, please see the class schedule table.
2. Registration fee
Registration fee is $20 per student per registration (same fee for kids or adults) and $50 maximum per family per registration.
After first registration is processed, adding classes will be considered as an additional registration. Therefore, $20 registration fee will be applied for each such registration.
3. School management fee (per family per year)
$25 per family per school year or $15 per semester. This fee is charged every school year/semester.
School management fee is waived for adult students who do not have children attending the school.
4. Parent duty fee (withhold)
$30 per family (one-time charge).
Parent duty will be assigned by Parents Council every semester. Failure to show up for parent duty will result in the forfeit of this parent duty fee. As a result, a new $30 withholding will be applied at the next registration. For families performed the duty in prior semester, this fee will not be re-charged at next registration.
There is no parent duty fee for adult students who do not have children at the school.
5. Class transfer rules
Any class transfer request among same grade Chinese classes or same course culture classes will not be processed.
For students who request class transfer, the first transfer during first two weeks of school is free, for each additional class transfer during first two weeks, $10 will be charged for each semester.
There will be no class transfers permitted from the third school week on.
If a transfer results in two different classes for fall and spring semesters, the semester tuition will be applied to each class, i.e. no full year discounted tuition can be used under such condition.
If students register in the spring, they can only register for the spring semester (no full year discount).
6. Class cancellation and refund
In order to receive a refund, the class cancellation form must be filed with payment receipt of registration within the first two weeks of the semester.
Students who withdraw classes within two weeks will get 100% tuition refund, provided that all teaching materials, including textbooks are returned in brand new condition. Otherwise the applicable textbook fee will be deducted from the refund. The refund will be posted online to your account after 4 weeks. In case the refund does not show in your account, please come to the administration office during the normal Chinese school day to resolve the issue.
If the deadline for cancellation is passed, the student can only cancel the 2nd semester classes if the student registers for a full year. In such cases, his/her registration will be considered one semester, thus no full year discount in tuition will apply. As a result, the refund will be less than half of the paid full year tuition (e.g. $270 for a year - $155 for a semester, the refund will be $115, not $135).
If there are no children in the school as a result of cancellation, all of the school management fee ($25 for one year; $15 for one semester) will be refunded. If there is at least one child in the family registered in the school, then this school management fee is not refunded.
The class cancellation/refund (request) form will be available online. The filled form can be mailed/emailed to School Administration for process.
There is no refund for those who register late (after two weeks of school). Registration fee cannot be refunded.
To complete the registration, ALL students and guardians must READ the following statements and SIGN below. For youngsters (age 18 or under), their legal parent/guardian must sign for them.
