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 $75 application fee 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. For Core/Prelude camp, our 50/50 plan requires 50% of the tuition balance due on February 28 and 50% due on May 1. For Intensive students, tuition is due by June 1.
What is meant by “Non-Refundable Registration Application Fee/Deposit”? Registration should be made with the intent to attend NEMC. The application 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. For all other cases will be looked at on a case by case basis. Priority will be given to campers who are able to attend the complete session.
