UFM must generate revenue to keep our programs going. We print the catalog, take registrations, pay utilities for classrooms, etc. To cover our expenses, we have “base fees” that we charge people who enroll in our classes. Generally, we charge $12 per student for the first time a class meets, and $2 for each additional class. If there are additional expenses for the class, (facility rent, supplies/materials, expenses to be paid to the instructor, etc.) those fees are added to our “base fee” to determine the total class fee listed in the catalog.
