Our Sliding Scale
Our sliding scale enables people with a range of economic situations to participate in our programming.
If the event lists a sliding scale, you can choose the amount you pay within the scale:
- The bottom of our sliding scale does not cover our costs in offering this work. It is for those who have low-paying jobs, and/or dependents, and are renters.
- The top of our sliding scale covers our costs and helps assist those at the bottom of the scale.
- The middle of the scale represents our actual costs to offer the event, based on a full group, all paying this amount.
Please pay what you can and consider donating to our scholarship fund via our matching grant -- see Support Us.

Terms and Conditions
All registrations require payment in full by the event's start date. Some programs may have an earlier deadline for payment in full. This will be stated in the listing.
Some programs may require at least a non-refundable deposit to hold your place. The deposit amount and deadline will be stated in the listing. Deposits are accepted by mail only. If you wish to pay by credit card online, you must pay the full registration amount.
If you pay online, you will receive an automatic email confirming your payment. Please wait until you receive a personal email or phone call from us to confirm that you are fully enrolled in the program. Our typical office hours are Monday through Thursday. If you register on Friday or over a weekend, please allow us time to get back to you.
Some events require a written application and/or permission of the instructor before your enrollment can be confirmed. In those cases, your advance payment will be held pending application approval. If, for some reason, your application is not approved, you will receive a full refund.
If you wish to withdraw less than two weeks before an event, your payment is non-refundable. Earlier refund deadlines may be necessary; if so, they will be stated in the listing.
If you have paid in full and need to withdraw before the refund deadline, you will be refunded minus any deposit amount stated in the listing.
Deposits are non-refundable except as follows:
- If we cancel the event, your deposit and/or payment will be 100% refunded
- If the event is already full when we receive your registration, your deposit and/or payment will be 100% refunded
- If we decide, based on an interview, conversation or application that the particular event is not a good match for you, your deposit and/or payment will be 100% refunded.
All refunds will be issued using the same method you used to pay. If you mailed us a personal check, you will receive a refund check by mail. If you paid by PayPal, we will issue your refund through PayPal.
If you have any questions, please contact us by phone or email before you register.
