Wait-List Policy

Finding Balance

Our registration procedure is based on a first-come, first-served basis and a gender balance. We strive to keep the numbers of ladies and gentlemen in our program equal, so everyone will have a dance partner. This why attendance at all seven events each program year is important!

At Carolina Junior Cotillions, we only place students on a wait list when absolutely necessary. If your son or daughter is placed on the wait list, you will be notified (by e-mail) and provided an opportunity to choose among the three wait list options explained below.

Please note if the gender imbalance corrects itself through students registering late, each wait-listed student will be enrolled based upon the postmark date of their registration form. Full refunds will be issued to students unable to register due to gender imbalance.

Example of Wait-List Option #1

Parents may choose to assist in recruiting the required gender student to ensure enrollment of their son or daughter. The name of the boy/girl should be included when you register for cotillion, along with your final payment. Parents will be notified as soon as our office receives the partner’s registration form and full payment.

Example of Wait-List Option #2

Students may remain on the wait list, retaining their respective positions based on the postmark date of their registration forms. Students will be removed from the wait list as the gender imbalance corrects itself through students joining the class. We will notify you of a change in status ASAP. Full refunds will be issued to students unable to register due to gender imbalance.

Example of Wait-List Option #3

Students may be removed from the Wait List and receive a refund. Students may reapply for Cotillion the following year.
