Atlanta Beauty & Baber Academy Payment & Refund Policy

Payment & Refund Policy

Payment Options

For all programs: The student is required to pay registration fees down prior to starting schol. Payments are due on the 1st of the month and considered late by the 5th of the month. A late fee of $50 will be charged if a student has not paid by the 5th of the month, with the exception of school holidays longer than one day that  might fall on a payment due date. In this scenario, payment will be due by the end of the week that the school returns from the holiday. Payment terms are contracted and signed off by both the student and the school staff on the Enrollment Agreement, and must be followed exactly as contracted.No partial payments will be accepted at any time. Should a student become more than two (2) months late on tuition payments at any point during their program, the student will automatically be dropped from the program with the option to reenroll under the “re-entry” student status terms in the “Admissions Requirements” section above once tuition payments are made current. 

Prior to graduation, any remaining balance will be due. If all funds owed are not paid to the school prior to graduation, the school reserves the right to withhold the student’s transcripts and/or Certificate of Completion. We accept cash, credit card, money order, cashier’s check or personal check.
