Monthly Tuition: $130/subject
Payment Method: Electric Fund Transfer (EFT) only. No more check/cash payment will be accepted. The New Authorization Form must be filed for January 2019 tuition.
Transaction Date: 1st of each month is the date that monthly tuition is withdrawn from the bank account.
Automatic Reauthorization: No action needed. EFT authorization is considered valid until a new authorization form is filed.

Kumon allows one month absence each year. Once any worksheets are checked out during a month, the student cannot be absent for the month, regardless if the worksheets are used or not. Any change of tuition payment must be directed by submission of a properly dated EFT Authorization Form with a marking of holding payment for one month absence and discontinue payment for withdrawing.
Penalty for Refunding: $30/subject. If the changing Authorization Form is not submitted in time to stop transaction on 1st of the month, but is submitted by the 15th of the month, then $100/subject will be refunded by the end of the month.
