Little Bit provides discounted lesson rates to our families, at approximately 75% of our total cost, with the help of subsidies provided by our generous donors, fundraisers and grants. The tiered tuition structure lets participants select the tier that is most appropriate for their household financial needs, and allows participants to opt to pay a more substantial portion of the actual cost of tuition. Tier 1 represents the actual cost of adaptive riding without any subsidies. Tiers 2, 3 and 4 are partially subsidized. The choice of a tier is completely voluntary.
To be considered for tuition aid, applications must be received by FAST (online application service), in Delaware, by 10/28/2017. Please allow for mailing time when sending tax returns and supporting documents to FAST. Late applications or documents will not be considered. If you have already completed an application for Summer or Fall 2017 you do not need to complete a new application for Winter or Spring 2018.
You will be eligible for scheduling when we receive your completed registration form and payment. In order to start the session, payment must be received in full or your payment plan is up to date before the session begins.
A late fee of $50.00 will be applied to all applications received after the Saturday, October 28 deadline.
If a rider cancels prior to the start of classes, full tuition, minus a $50 administrative fee, is refunded. Refunds are not offered once classes have begun, except for unplanned medical necessity with a doctor’s note. Little Bit will credit the rider’s account for cancellations that we are responsible for, not including weather or “Acts of God.” When an unmounted lesson is offered as an alternative to a mounted lesson and a rider decides not to attend, a refund will not be given.
