The Student Accounts Office reserves the right to assess late fees to all accounts that have not been paid by the due date. Please note that non-receipt of an invoice does not constitute an exception to the late fee policy. The Student Accounts Office will generate Fall semester invoices in July and the Spring semester invoices in December for Precollege students. These will be available online at the MSM Student portal allowing sufficient time to make payment arrangements.
Should accounts become excessively overdue, it is the policy of Manhattan School of Music to place the account on hold. This hold will prevent you from registering for the upcoming semester, viewing your grades, receiving a copy of your transcript or your diploma. Please contact the Student Accounts Office immediately should circumstances arise to interfere with tuition payments to the School.
Timely receipt of payment is considered to be:

If it is necessary for a student to withdraw completely from the Precollege Division or from an individual course carrying an additional charge, the Precollege Administration must be notified by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. The date on which the e-mail is received will determine the withdrawal date and how the student’s accounts will be pro-rated. Once the adjustment is made on the student’s account, a refund will be processed payable to the parent on record. Refunds commence Thursday, October 7*, and continue on a weekly basis. The refund will be mailed to the most current address given to the Precollege Division. After the first day of classes, refunds may be reduced by pro-rated charges according to the section below.
Requests for Leave of Absences or withdrawals must be made via e-mail to email@example.com. The date on which the e-mail is received will determine the withdrawal date and how the student’s account will be pro-rated. Students withdrawing after the first day of classes will be responsible to pay for fees and a portion of the tuition. Students with financial aid will receive a percentage of their allocated scholarship according to their withdrawal date. The tuition and scholarship will be pro-rated based on the following schedule:
% of Charges Responsible by Date
09/11/21-09/24/21(Week 1&2): 20%
09/25/21-10/01//21 (Week 3): 30%

No refunds will be made after the seventh week. The $100 required Reservation Deposit is nonrefundable and nontransferable. Late Fees are not refundable after classes begin.
The Precollege Office distributes validation stickers to students each semester once tuition payment has been confirmed. You must have a valid ID and sticker to gain entrance to the main building and to have borrowing rights to the library. Please report a missing or lost ID card as soon as possible. If you lose or damage your ID card there is a $45.00 replacement fee, payable in cash or by credit/debit card, to the Business Office.
