Tuition & Refund Policies

Tuition Payment Policy & Deadlines

All tuition must be paid before you will be allowed to access the course. Accepted forms of payment include credit cards or checks made payable to NDEO or the National Dance Education Organization. If your school or employer is paying the tuition and will be using a purchase order please make sure the check is sent in time to be received prior to the course start date.

The registration and payment deadline is two Wednesdays before a course begins. If a course is sold-out by that date, all unpaid students will be dropped and those on the wait list will be offered a spot in the course. If a course is not sold-out by this date, then a later registration and payment option will be allowed up to the Wednesday before the course start date.  If a course sells out by this date, then all unpaid students will be dropped and those on the wait list will be offered a spot in the course up to the course start date.

When mailing checks please use: NDEO, 8609 2nd Avenue, Ste. 203-B, Silver Spring, MD 20910. If you have questions please call us at 301-585-2880.

Course Tuition for NDEO Members

You must be logged into your current NDEO Membership in order to register at these rates. If you are not a member and plan to take more than one course within a year, then it would make financial sense to sign up for a membership before registering for OPDI courses so you can access these lower tuition fees. * Effective for all courses staring in Spring 2024, there is a minor tuition price increase. Below are the updated tuition fees.

Course Tuition for Non-Members
