Teen Program: Tuition Dates & Cancellation Policy

Tuition is due within 30 days after receiving an acceptance to the program if before May 1st. On May 1st, any outstanding balance is due. For applications received after May 1st, tuition is due within 7 days after receiving acceptance to the program.

Should enrollment not be sufficient resulting in workshop cancellation or reassignment, you will be notified no later than May 15th, and students will be placed in there next highest workshop selection. 

If a student withdraws prior to April 1st, The Putney School Summer Arts will refund tuition and deposit paid, minus $100. If a student withdraws after April 1st, tuition will be refunded minus $500. There are no refunds for withdrawals after May 1st. Families awarded financial aid who elect not to enroll in TPSSA after receiving notice of financial aid award are entitled to a refund of tuition and deposit paid minus $100, provided TPSSA receives written notice of this decision by May 1st. 

Teen Program: Tuition Assistance

Partial tuition assistance is awarded, as available, based on family need, strength of application, and level of resources in The Putney School Summer Arts Tuition Assistance Fund. We gratefully acknowledge the families and organizations who contribute to The Putney School Summer Arts Tuition Assistance Fund.

The first step for families wishing to apply for partial tuition assistance is to indicate that you plan to apply for financial aid when completing the student application. We will then share Putney’s Financial Aid Application with you to submit, together with the first two pages of the most recent Federal Tax return for each parent/guardian. If parents are not filing jointly, each parent completes and submits a separate form. We award aid whenever possible, giving priority to students who are new to the programs.

Families or organizations interested in helping to sponsor a student financially should contact Dan Folgar, Director of Summer Programs. 

Adult Program: Cancellation Policy

If a participant decides before July 1st to not attend the program, we can issue a refund for monies paid, minus a $100 processing fee. There are no refunds for choosing to withdraw from the program after July 1st, except in cases of severe illness, injury, or family emergency.

It is not possible to make any tuition reduction for arriving late or leaving early.

Should enrollment not be sufficient resulting in workshop cancellation, participants will be notified by July 1st. In the event a cancellation does occur, participants will have the option to join another workshop dependent on availability or the option for a refund, minus $100 processing fee. We can also hold tuition paid and apply it towards the following summer.
