Late Payment Fee Policy -- College Division

The Student Accounts Office reserves the right to assess late fees to all accounts, including undergraduate, graduate, professional studies, and doctoral, 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 is the account holder and therefore responsible for ensuring that payments are made on or before the due date regardless of the source of funds. The student is also responsible for forwarding student account information to other parties that have agreed to make payment (i.e., parents, sponsors).
Should accounts become excessively overdue, it is the policy of Manhattan School of Music to place the account on hold and suspend private lessons and other school privileges.  Please contact the Student Accounts Office immediately should circumstances arise that may or are likely to interfere with payments.

Timely receipt of payment is considered to be:

  • Credit card verbal authorization received by the Student Accounts
    Office on or before the tuition due date
    Credit card authorization forms mailed on or before the due date
    Checks delivered by mail where the envelope is postmarked on or before the tuition due date
    Wire transfers initiated on or before the due date  

Late Fee Schedule Spring 2014 Semester
