REGISTRATION / RE-REGISTRATION FEES
There is a compulsory one-time non-refundable registration fee of $100 payable on admission to the Academy for each student. However, if more than one member of the same family joins the Academy to study in any discipline within 2 months, the Registration Fee will be waived for additional member.
Students who take a break, regardless of the number of months, are required to pay a Re-Registration Fee of $100.
