To apply for Financial Aid to José Mateo Ballet Theatre’s Young Dancers Program in Cambridge or Dorchester, please follow the instructions below. If you have any questions, please contact our office at [email protected] or call 617-354-7467.
1. REVIEW FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY STIPULATIONS AND GUIDELINES
2. SET UP YOUR ACCOUNT
Please complete steps 1-7 outlined in the MindBody Enrollment Guide (click here for the Cambridge Studio or click here for Dorchester Studio). Your Financial Aid Award credit will be applied to your account.
3. COMPLETE A FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION
If you would prefer not to apply online, you may print out, complete, and submit the YDP Financial Aid Application 2019-20.
4. NOTIFICATION OF FINANCIAL AID AWARD
Once the Financial Aid Committee has reviewed your application, you will receive a letter via email that outlines your award and payment due dates.
5. ACCEPTANCE OF FINANCIAL AID AWARD
Once a countersigned copy of your award letter has been received, the office will enroll your student in their appropriate class(es) and a credit in the amount of the award will be applied to your account. The remaining balance is what is owed for the year. NO PAYMENT is due until the award has been accepted and applied to the cost of tuition.
6. MAKING A PAYMENT TOWARDS YOUR BALANCE
If you would like to pay by cash or check, or if you have signed up for autopay, the office will process each payment and add it to your account to pay down the account balance.
If you would like to make online payments yourself, using the MindBody system, please follow the steps below.
Log in to your MindBody account.
You can make a payment toward your balance by selecting the “Online Store” tab in MindBody and selecting the “Account Payments” section.
In the dropdown box next to “Which account payment would you like?” select the Financial Aid Account Payment.
A box will appear with 0.00 autofilled, and you may enter in the amount you wish to apply to your account in this box and select “Make Purchase.” You should refer to your Financial Aid Award letter for the amount due at each payment date.
Clicking “Make Purchase” will bring you to your shopping cart where you can check out this account payment. Accounts must be paid on the schedule outlined in the letter.
You will be able to track what has been paid and what is owed for the year through your MindBody Account.
