Tuition & Fees

Students must pay for courses and ensembles in advance for the year and private lessons in advance for the semester.

A $40 registration fee is charged for each semester of required registration. Students enrolling in September for year-long courses and ensembles are not required to re-register for those courses in the spring. Spring registration is required for private instruction and addition of courses and ensembles. A $50 late registration fine will be charged for students registering without due cause after the registration periods listed in the catalog.
