The Academy of Acting for Film and Theatre Policy for Students

In an effort to help students have the most productive experience in acting class, there is a protocol to help the in-person and online classes run smoothly.

A minimum deposit of 50% of tuition is needed to enroll in classes paid with a credit/debit card which will remain on file to complete payment by due date. Student may pay by check, cash, or PayPal, but a card number will be needed to remain on file. Late payments after the 1st of the month will incur a $20 late fee.

Monthly tuition for Workshop Advanced for the Working Actor is due on the 26th day of the previous month. Students will be charged by the credit/debit card on file unless student pays by cash, check, or Paypal. Late payments after the 1st of the month will incur a $20 late fee.

For Workshop Advanced for the Working Actor students, prorating monthly tuition is possible if the partial month along with the following entire month is paid in full.

There are no refunds. If a class is missed the student will get up more the following class to complete missed work. If there is an unforeseen emergency or illness where more than one class is missed, it is at the discretion of the Academy to decide if the student may enter the class at a later date to make up classes missed.

If a student wishes to book out of Workshop Advanced, written email communication is needed by the 20th of the previous month the student is attending for the following month. This will allow scene partners to plan accordingly and for a new or returning student to take the available space in class. If there is no written email communication, student will be charged for the following month via credit/debit card on file.

If a student plans on being absent or late to class, email and scene partner(s) as soon as possible.

Sessions start on time, there is a 5-minute break. If a student is late to an in-person or an online class they should look to see if a scene/exercise is finished before entering the class.

It is mandatory that homework/rehearsals are completed before class.

Students should not read texts during class. Students receive as much knowledge from someone else’s critique as from their own. In an emergency, student should leave the class to use the phone.

Student may only list a class on their resume after it is completed. When listing training: [Name of class] with Linda Ann Watt, Academy of Acting for Film and Theatre.
