Withdrawal and Refunds

For students who need to withdraw from classes, withdrawal forms can be obtained at the front desk and returned to one of the CDE Administrative Assistants. All forms must be returned 30 days prior to student withdrawal. Parents/guardians will be responsible for all tuition payments due up to one month after the written notice. Tuition is non-refundable except in the case of serious illness or injury as verified by a doctor’s certificate or in the relocation of a family. Refunds will not be given for inclement weather or unforeseen events.

Due to the unique circumstances that we are experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Tulsa Ballet has created the following procedures for 20-21 school year.

If you enrolled for the 20-21 school year and your family would like to withdraw from TBCDE, you may:

  1. Donate funds to Tulsa Ballet’s Critical Relief Fund.
  2. Leave funds on account with Tulsa Ballet, to be used towards tuition at a later date, performance tickets, or other opportunities with Tulsa Ballet and TBCDE. This option will keep your funds available through December 31, 2021, after which time any remaining balance will be considered a donation to Tulsa Ballet.
  3. Request a refund of tuition paid. In recognition of the challenges this pandemic may present to families, you may request a refund by filling out the Tuition Refund Request Form.  This form will be made available upon your request to TBCDE staff.  The deadline to submit this form is August 22, 2020.  After this date, you may choose from the first two options listed above.  Your request can be for tuition paid to date, not including the non-refundable enrollment fee.
