Placement Confirmation

Thank you for confirming your GBYO placement!

FEES AND PAYMENTS
Fees are due on or before the first day of rehearsals. We prefer payment in full by check or cash in an envelope marked with the student’s name.

Credit card payments will also be taken on the first day of rehearsals from 8:30-12. You may also pay online at gbyo.org via PayPal before the first day. However, we prefer payments by cash or check. Credit card companies and PayPal charge GBYO 3% processing fees for every transaction. We would appreciate it if you would consider adding 3% to any credit card or Paypal payments to cover these costs.

If you choose the installment plan, payments are due on the first day, Sept. 7; Oct. 5; and Nov. 2. Only checks are accepted for the payment plan. Full snack and retreat fees, as well as one-third of ensemble fees, are included in the first installment. Second and third installments are therefore less than the first installment; however, a $5 processing fee is added to both the second and third installments. Fees must be paid in full by Nov. 2, 2019.

Financial assistance applications should be submitted on the first day at rehearsals with a $25 processing fee and a copy of your most recent income tax return.

Genualdi Scholarship applications should be submitted on or before Sept. 21.
