Refund Policies

A student who officially withdraws within the refund period will receive a refund in accordance with the refund schedule (see refund grid below).  All refunds are calculated from the date on which the student drops the course on WebSTAC. If you drop applied music lessons, you will forfeit any rebate or scholarship amounts that you were due to receive.  Should you choose to drop during the refund timeframe, your student account will receive a MUSI charge for the percentage of the lesson fee based on your drop date.
