UC Class Fee Guidelines

New for 2024-2025!

ECCHO classes that are held at Longbranch Community Baptist Church have a registration fee associated with them.  The fees collected help us to pay the church for use of the building, pay for insurance, cleaning supplies, snacks, student and teacher gifts, etc.  UC registration fees are $30 per student per semester, $120 family max per semester. These registration fees are invoiced by and paid directly to ECCHO via cash, check, or Zelle.

Class Supply Fees are due to teachers on or before the first Friday of the semester (some teachers may have one yearly supply fee due Sept or two semester supply fees due Sept and Jan). 

Monthly Class Fees are due to teachers on or before the first Friday of each month (Sept, Oct, Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March, Apr), as outlined on the Academic Calendar. These fees must be paid on time to avoid incurring a late fee of $5 per class per week until payment has been received. All class descriptions on the website will include how a teacher prefers their payments whether cash, check or electronic payments, and that information remains there all year for reference.

Teachers are asked to communicate with parents at the beginning of the year to confirm payment methods, and then provide further communication throughout the year regarding any missing fees. Teachers are to report missing class fees to the Upper Class Directors if they do not receive a response or reconcile missing fees in a timely manner.

Communication is key. If you have a financial burden, please reach out to your teachers to arrange a financial plan of action. If you continually do not meet your obligations to pay your teacher(s) promptly without communication, your student(s) will be removed from their class(es) and not allowed to register for classes or events again until the balance is paid. Please respect our teachers and program, and make every effort to pay your class fees on time!

UPPER CLASS CHANGES, WITHDRAWALS, AND DISMISSALS

We understand that times will arise when a student needs to change their schedule. However, teachers also have an expectation of student enrollment as they plan and prepare for their classes. After registration, any withdrawals or class changes must be submitted to UC Directors in writing via email.  Changes made prior to July 31st will not incur extra fees.

Classes dropped on August 1st or later will incur a drop fee as follows:

*Supply fee must still be paid to the teacher to cover supplies that have been purchased. Parents may request these supplies from the teacher if desired.

*If the student attended 1 or more class days – the month(s) in which he/she attended must be paid in full.

*A $20 per class "drop fee" will be charged.

Thank you for your understanding as we work to make our program run smoothly for all involved.
