Payment is made at the time of registration. Registration is not complete until payment is received. See Payment Policy below for more information.
Payments to the Arts Institute for tuition and fees are processed through the Indiana University Office of Conference and Event Registration Services (OCERS). Payments can be made by using a Check, Money Order, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, or American Express.
First time users will need to create an account.
Previous users will simply enter their e-mail address and password and click "Sign In To Continue."
Once you have successfully submitted your payment, you will receive a confirmation via e-mail. Please keep that confirmation as your receipt of payment.
PLEASE NOTE: Making a payment online via OCERS does not automatically enroll you or your child in Arts Institute courses. A registration form must be completed each semester in order to enroll. OCERS is only a means of paying your Arts Institute tuition and fee.

For those enrolling in a full 14-week term (or 12-week term in the summer), at least one-half of the total amount due (tuition + registration fee) must be paid at the time of registration. The remaining balance is due prior to the 7th week (or 6th week during the summer) of the term. If you are paying in multiple installments, there is an additional $6 charge for subsequent transactions.
For those enrolling in an 8-week term or less, the total amount is due at the time of registration.
Late payments will be assessed a $10 late fee charge.
If you are making a mid-term half payment or making a payment on your account balance and have already completed a registration form for the semester, you do NOT need to complete another registration form.
Lessons cannot begin until payment is received. Missed lessons due to a failure to pay will not be made-up.
Withdrawals and Refunds
If a student must withdraw before the 3rd week of a session, a refund of paid tuition (minus registration fee and a 5% cancellation fee) for remaining lessons will be issued. Notification of early withdrawal must be made no later than the end of the 2nd week of the session. Refunds will not be given for withdrawal from a course after the refund period. Refunds requested due to illness or injury require a written statement from a physician. All refund requests must be made in writing and require approval from the Arts Institute Coordinator. The registration fee is non-refundable, except when the Arts Institute cancels a course due to insufficient enrollment.
The Arts Institute retains the right to cancel a class if there is insufficient enrollment, in which case all fees will be refunded. Should a private lesson instructor be unable to complete a semester of lessons, the Arts Institute will make every effort to find another teacher. If that is not possible, all fees from remaining lessons will be refunded (minus the initial registration fee).
What if my check is returned due to insufficient funds?
The return by the bank of any dishonored check/item which you have issued: (1) for fees; (2) for previous balance billed; or (3) anywhere on campus will be assessed a fee of $27.50 or 5% of the face value (whichever is greater), with a maximum of $250 per returned item. The agreement with our bank is that checks will be sent through twice before they are returned to us as a dishonored check. However, once we have received a dishonored check/item it is considered a returned check regardless of the number of times it has been sent through by our bank.
PLEASE NOTE: The Arts Institute will contact the student for any check/item that was written for tuition or fees and was returned by the bank as dishonored. The amount of the dishonored check/item and the returned check service charge will need to be paid with guaranteed funds by a specified date
If two (2) or more checks are returned, we will not accept another personal check for a minimum of two (2) years.
