Is the course price not right for your family? If you could benefit from some assistance for our Fall program, please complete our What Works for U form and email enrollment@usdan.org with any questions.

Do you offer any discounts?

We do! Families who enroll in two or more courses receive a 5% discount off their total tuition.

Friend Referral Program

Usdan offers friend referral discounts. Why? Because the online studio is even more fun with friends in it! Here's how it works:

Tell your friends about Usdan Online

Send them to usdan.org/online

Provide them promo code: FRIEND

Upon enrollment, have them enter the promo code as well as your full name in the "Friend Referral" field 

Your friend will automatically receive a 10% discount off their total tuition cost

We will contact you and apply a 10% discount to the tuition you've already paid, or the cost of an additional course

Note: This promotion cannot be combined with any other discount. Both families must be enrolled in order to receive the discount. 

Are there material or other course requirements?

Usdan strives to limit family spending by simplifying materials required such as instruments, dance clothing, and art supplies. Any course requirements will be listed in the parent notes section of the course description.

Many of the art supplies required can be found around your home or at a local store. Some art classes will require specialty items such as watercolor sets, acrylic paints, or cardstock. The Usdan faculty has created a list of recommended items and brands, which you can access here.

Feel free to enrollment@usdan.org with any questions.

Do you provide opportunities for student and parent and caregiver feedback?

Usdan Online was designed based on the feedback of our current and recent past families, and it does not need to stop there. We encourage you to continue sending feedback throughout your child's course so we can improve how the program supports your children and their creative development. We will offer opportunities to submit feedback including a first day check in survey and an end-of-course survey, and we always encourage you to send comments or suggestions to enrollment@usdan.org

Do you offer private lessons?

Usdan is open to offering private and small group courses outside of listed options. Families who do not do not find a course that fits their child's interest can request a private or small group course, such as chess or private music lessons, by completing the form below.
