Student Policies and Procedures

The Ailey School Student Handbook provides essential information for students and their parents. Handbooks are distributed annually to all incoming and currently enrolled students and are updated regularly.  It is the responsibility of each student to read the handbook and become familiar with School policies and procedures as well as their rights and responsibilities as an Ailey School student.

Credit card payments should be pre-authorized before sending in your payment.  Daily limits may interfere with processing and cause late payments. Please allow three weeks for processing.

Financial Aid students:

  • A current “Projection of Aid Disbursement to Show the Bursar” form must be submitted once per year to fulfill your payment requirements.
  • If a disbursement is expected for your cost of living, the Bursar will contact the aid recipient directly when payment is available, usually about a month after the first day of class.
