Q:

What is the MHS Fees Policy?

A:

The relationship of MHS with its families is based on mutual trust. MHS is committed to preserving the interests of families to whom we provide services.  All fees are used to provide services to families and as such, are integral to annual planning of services, events, venue, and other expenses related to providing such services. Therefore, when fees are not paid in a timely manner, it places the organization at a disadvantage.
 

MHS has an annual tuition for each academic year from August through May. In addition, classes may require purchased texts and supplies.

  • When you register for tutorial classes at MHS, you are entering a contractual agreement to provide payment for services.
     
  • Payment is due whether you use the services or not, since they are paid for by the organization at the beginning of the semester, based on registration numbers.
     

  • All fees are due by invoice dates.  No exceptions.
     

  • All MHS fees are Non-Refundable.
     

  • You must login each month and pay your invoices manually. You can find them by logging in and clicking on "Accounting" and then "Invoice & Payment Details".

     
  • All payments must be made via our online payment system on the website.
     
  • All clients are required to provide valid credit card information for MHS to keep on file. You may pay your fees via any method you choose on the website, but if they are not paid on time, your credit card will be charged.
     

  • In cases where fees are not paid on time and the credit card is declined, you may be asked not to return to MHS until fees are paid via certified check.
     

  • Due to the fact that classes are contingent on meeting minimum required students, invoices will only be adjusted if a class gets canceled.
