Policies & FAQs

Information on payment, cancellations, scholarships, and more.


When do I pay?

A $50 non-refundable deposit (applicable to tuition) per class is required at registration. Full payment is due no later than 2 weeks prior to the start of class.

When will I know if my child is in the class?

Once registered, you will receive an email confirming your enrollment, stating your balance due and due date, the class location, and other general information. We will also send you a medical release form to complete.

What if I need to cancel?

We will refund your tuition (less the $50 non-refundable deposit) up to two weeks before the first day of class. Refunds are not given for cancellations made less than two weeks before the first day of class. Cancellations after class has started are not eligible for refunds or credits.

What if a class is canceled by OCT?

Oregon Children’s Theatre reserves the right to cancel any class if enrollment is insufficient. Any tuition paid will be refunded in full.
