Registration Deadlines & Procedures

Students register online for summer studies in music education. The School of Music, Theatre, and Dance will assist in registering students taking courses for credit. Early registration is encouraged as some classes fill quickly or have enrollment caps.

Registration and payment deadlines:
If taking a course for “credit” the cost is $400 per credit hour.  Non-credit prices are listed in the PDF brochures linked for each course.

Cancellation fee:
A $50 cancellation fee will be assessed for each course registration that is canceled before the start of the course. Cancellation requests must be made in writing to the School of Music, Theatre, and Dance. The university reserves the right to cancel a course if registration has not reached sufficient enrollment 10 days before the first class session. Students are notified immediately and tuition is refunded.

Withdrawal refunds:
Students who officially register for a course are considered in the course and owe full tuition unless the course is canceled or the student officially withdraws. Contact Student Financial Services if you need to withdraw.
