Other Information: 


I. Tuition Assistance and Scholarship Information


Tuition assistance is granted on a financial need basis. Partial or full assistance may be granted. Application forms are available at the SYS office or online. If you have been awarded Tuition Assistance or a scholarship to SYS for this season by SYS or another organization, please indicate the dollar amount and who awarded the scholarship. 



II. Music Expenses


At the end of the workshop we require that all practice parts are turned in to the SYS office. Copyright laws  require that you return all music and copies of music to SYS.


III. Member Service Obligations


The Sacramento Youth Symphony is a member run organization relying heavily on members performing much of the preparation for rehearsals and concerts to keep costs down.


Each member family is encouraged to serve for 2 hours at various tasks ranging from rehearsal set up and break down, check in, and photography.  Each family contributes snack, fruit, drink for 15 kids.  Service hour opportunity sign-ups will be available prior to the start of rehearsals. Full Season members of SYS can apply their service hours to the coming season.


IV. Refunds of Tuition


All requests for refunds must be submitted to the office for review. After the registration deadlines, no refunds will be granted. Difficult or hardship cases will be considered on a case-by-case basis.


If you have chosen a tuition payment plan, your obligation remains the same as that above.Cancelling your payment plan subscription, or non-payment of any kind, does not relieve you of the tuition obligation above. SYS reserves the right to collect any unpaid tuition, including, but not limited to collections, if necessary.
