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 early 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 and to suspend private lessons and other school privileges. Please contact the Student Accounts Office immediately should circumstances arise to interfere with payments.
Timely receipt of payment is considered to be:
$100.00 assessed January 15, 2018
First overdue notification sent to the assigned MSM e-mail. Student’s account will be placed on HOLD. A student whose account is on hold will be prevented from using MSM services including the library, practice rooms, and official Precollege documents.
Second overdue notification sent by MSM e-mail and by U.S. mail to student’s Billing Address on record. The Dean of the Precollege Division will be notified to contact student’s major lesson teacher to suspend lessons until delinquent account balance has been resolved.
Precollege parents who have any questions about Financial Aid should contact the Precollege Office at 917-493-4999.
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. Once the adjustment is made on the student’s account, a refund will be processed payable to the parent on record. Refunds commence Thursday, February 1, 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.
Once the Precollege Division has been notified, the date on which the e-mail is received will determine the withdrawal date and how the student 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
01/20/18-02/02/18 (Week 1&2): 20%
02/03/18-02/09/18 (Week 3): 30%
02/10/18-02/23/18 (Week 4): 40%
02/24/18-03/02/18 (Week 5): 50%
03/03/18-03/09/18 (Week 6): 60%
03/10/18-03/16/18 (Week 7): 70%
on or after 03/17/18: 100%
