This deposit is like a down-payment on your overall fees. We require this deposit as an insurance element for our own planning purposes, in order to "deter" sudden, casual withdrawal by previously admitted participants. Remember that your deposit is only due after you have been notified of formal admission to the program, and that the deposit is subtracted from your remaining fees. You will not be required to pay this deposit prior to formal admission. For further information, please read the "General Terms and Conditions of Business" document, which you should download from our website.
