How much is the tuition? NEMC tuition includes, room and board, classes/rehearsals, two one-half hour lessons weekly, weekly laundry, recreation and social activities. Instrument rental and extra lessons are available for an additional fee. Please see the Tuition and Dates page for current tuition.
What is the payment schedule? A non-refundable $500 deposit is required at registration 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 April 1st.
What is meant by “Non-Refundable Registration Deposit”? Registration should be made with the intent to attend NEMC. 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.
