The $100 application fee must accompany the Application for Admission (www.unifiedapps.org). The $500 enrollment reservation is required of all new and returning students and is credited to the tuition payment due for the fall semester. The enrollment reservation is non-refundable if the student fails to register, and is due from new graduate and postgraduate students by April 15, from new undergraduate students by May 1 and from returning students by June 15. The balance of fall tuition and fees must be paid at the time of fall registration, and the spring tuition and fees must be paid at the time of spring registration.
All full-time students (12 credits and more) are required to have medical insurance. All domestic, full-time students who are not covered under a comparable U.S.-issued health insurance policy must purchase health insurance offered through the Conservatory before being allowed to register. All international, full-time students must purchase health insurance offered through the Conservatory before being allowed to register. Students enrolled for less than 12 credits (part-time status) are not eligible to buy insurance through the Conservatory. Students who take a leave of absence may also be ineligible to continue their health insurance policy through the Conservatory. Students enrolled in Optional Practical Training (OPT) are eligible, but not required, to enroll. More information can be found on the Student Health Insurance Plan page.
Students should come to the Conservatory fully prepared to meet their tuition, fees and living expenses. Prospective students should be realistic about providing for their schooling and living expenses while attending the Conservatory. Part-time jobs may be available through the school or in the community, but it is unrealistic to think that a student can fully cover tuition and living expenses through such employment.
