Academic Year Courses
Costs for AoPS Academy Academic Year Courses consist of the following:
- Annual registration fee: $45 for registrations before January 1, $25 for registrations on or after January 1. This fee is charged once per academic year per student. The fee is only paid once if a student enrolls in multiple courses.
- Curriculum fee: $50 per course. This fee covers books (including online books, where applicable) and other resources that students receive as part of the instruction for each course. For courses that require a textbook, $25 of the curriculum fee will be refunded after enrollment if you notify the director that you already have the textbook.
- Annual tuition: The annual tuition for each Academic Year Course is paid in 3 installments. The installments will be charged during Week 1, Week 13, and Week 25 of each course. The tuition amounts will be announced when the Academic Year schedule is released in May.
When enrolling before a course begins, the curriculum fee, the registration fee, and a $100 deposit are due upon enrollment. The deposit is credited towards the first tuition payment. If a student enrolls after Academic Year courses have started, the curriculum fee, registration fee, and the prorated trimester tuition are due upon enrollment. After the initial payment made at the time of enrollment, the remaining tuition installments described above will be automatically charged to the credit card on file without further authorization.
If a student drops an Academic Year Course before the course starts, then we will issue a full refund of tuition and all associated fees. If the student drops an Academic Year Course before the third class after the student enrolls, then we will issue a full refund of the tuition for the course (but not the registration or curriculum fee).
A student may withdraw before the second trimester payment if they give notice by November 1st. There are no refunds of fees already paid upon such withdrawal, though there will not be a charge for the second or third trimester's tuition if the student withdraws before November 1st. Similarly, if a student gives a withdrawal notice before February 1st, then there will not be a charge for the third trimester's tuition.
The tuition for each Summer Course covers the entire course and all associated materials. For enrollments that are more than one week before the start of a course, a $200 deposit is required at the time of enrollment, with the balance due one week before the course begins. For enrollments less than one week before the start of a course, or after the course begins, the full course fee is due at the time of enrollment. The full cost for each course is shown on the Course Schedule page.
If a student drops a Summer Course before the course starts, then we will issue a full refund for the course tuition (including the $200 deposit). No refund will be issued for students who withdraw after a Summer Course has started.
