How much is the tuition? NEMC tuition includes, room and board, classes/rehearsals, weekly lessons, weekly laundry (for core camp), recreation and social activities. Instrument rental and extra lessons are available for an additional fee. Laundry is an additional fee for Intensive students. Please see the Tuition and Dates page for current tuition.
What is the payment schedule? A non-refundable $100 application is due upon submission of registration materials. Upon acceptance, a $500 deposit is required in order to reserve a space in the appropriate cabin and the requested instrumental/voice studio. Our 50/50 plan requires 50% of the tuition balance due on February 28th and 50% due on May 1st.
What is meant by “Non-Refundable Registration Registration Fee/Deposit”? Registration should be made with the intent to attend NEMC. The registration fee is to cover administrative costs during the admission process. If the student is accepted, the $500 deposit guarantees the student an ID number that confirms a space in the studio and a bed in a cabin. This deposit is non-refundable. If the student is not accepted, the deposit will be refunded.
Are allowances made for students who come late or leave early? Students may come a day or two late due to conflicts with school schedules or other commitments. Rarely do students leave early. No monetary adjustments are made for personal choices in scheduling arrivals or departures.
What happens if my child withdraws? If a camper withdraws after April 1st, and a replacement cannot be found, the parent of the withdrawing camper will be held responsible for the full tuition.
