Tuition Policy

Tuition Policy

The Conductive Learning Center is a nonprofit organization that operates through gift and grant funding and program fees. Program fees or tuition, are based on the overall operational costs for a 12- month period from July to June. A portion of the cost of the program is borne by the parent, with a substantial amount of the cost of the program covered through scholarship that the CLC is able to provide through fundraising and donations. Tuition is in part based on the residency of the family of the child, with additional scholarship given to residents of the state of Michigan. The family of the student must meet the following requirements to qualify for In State tuition:

  • The family must be legal residents of Michigan for at least 6 consecutive months prior to the session the child is scheduled to attend.

Proof of Residency

The CLC will accept as proof of residency a valid driver’s license or State of Michigan ID plus one of the following:

  • A dated voter registration card.
  • A dated Lease Agreement.
  • Proof of purchase (copy of Buy-Sell Agreement) of home for residence within the State of Michigan.
  • Verifiable rent receipts. If rent receipts are not available, a notarized letter from the landlord will be accepted.

In all cases, the date of residency must be six months prior to the start date of the session in which the child is enrolled or six months prior to attendance.

Admission Request

A completed application form must be submitted with a non-refundable $25.00 application fee.

Participation in a scheduled assessment or mailed video assessment per the guidelines on the website and payment of a $100 non refundable fee for the assessment.

Payment of Tuition

A letter of acceptance will be sent out 6 weeks prior to the start of the session. This letter will outline the group your child is accepted to participate in, the dates and times of the program they are accepted into, and tuition rate.

Payments: 50% is due 4 weeks prior to the start of a session; 50% is due on the first day of the session.

The CLC has no obligation to reserve a space for a student that has not submitted the 50% deposit by the date outlined in the acceptance letter. CLC will not be able to run groups without a minimum of three children enrolled for that group.

Anyone 30 days in arrears will not be permitted to enroll to a session until the previous balance is paid in full.

A written notice of withdrawal should be made 30 days prior to the date of withdrawal. No refund will be granted if a withdrawal occurs without 30 days notice.

It is essential that your fees be paid promptly and consistently as described in your letter of acceptance. All fees must be paid for the session your child is registered to attend by the first day of that session. A child will not be admitted to a session if any fees are outstanding. If your child is absent, the fees are still due in full. Tuition will remain the same during periods that contain closings for holidays, snow days, and staff documentation days.

Payment may be made with cash, check, or credit card and you may enroll in automatic billing with a VISA, Mastercard, American Express or Discover. Please send all payments to The Conductive Learning Center at 2428 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
