Tuition, Fees, and Expenses

Prospective students should be aware that the costs of living in New York City are high and off-campus rents can be exceedingly high. The room and board rates listed below are for the Juilliard residence hall and meal plan. To be prudent, students should also calculate out-of-town transportation (where applicable) into their overall budgets.

Student Budget (Tuition, Residence Hall, and Misc. Expenses) for 2018-19

The estimated budget for a Juilliard student for the nine-month 2018-2019 academic year is calculated as follows :

Tuition $45,110 $45,110
Residence Hall (room and meals) New Students Continuing Students
  Double Room $16,950 $15,990
  Single Room $21,170 $19,970

Subtotal $62,060 (Double) $61,100 (Double)
  $66,280 (Single) $65,080 (Single)

TOTAL $65,610 (Double) $64,650 (Double.)
  $69,830 (Single) $69,830 (Single)

Students who live off campus should expect their housing and food costs to be higher than those listed here. They should also calculate local transportation costs of approximately $1,090 into their budgets.

The enrollment deposit is not refundable.

Payment of Tuition

A bill for half of the annual tuition and all applicable fees will be available online in early July and must be paid (in U.S. funds) by August 13, 2018. A bill for the second half of the tuition will be available in early November and must be paid by December 1, 2018. Payments may be made in person, via wire transfer, online or by mail to the Office of Student Accounts.

Students who expect financial assistance (including Juilliard, federal, or state grants or loans) but who have not received funds or official guarantees by the above due dates, must make full tuition payments when due.

A deferred payment plan for tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board charges is available from Tuition Management Systems. Information on this plan may be obtained by contacting the Office of Student Accounts or online at juilliard.afford.com.

Note: Full tuition scholarships are provided for all students admitted to the Historical Performance, Artist Diploma in Opera Studies, and Doctoral programs. The following Artist Diploma programs are tuition free:

Jazz Studies
String Quartet Studies
Playwriting

Please note, however, that Artist Diploma students will be charged the Student Health Insurance Fee as well as the Health Services Fee, Orientation Fee and the Graduation Fee when applicable.

Late Fee Payment Schedule

Please note that if any portion of the tuition is outstanding after the stated due dates, payments will be subject to the following late payment fees and sanctions:

Fall Semester

August 13, 2018 $50
September 30, 2018 additional $250
December 1, 2018 Not permitted to register for spring semester and subject to immediate dismissal

Spring Semester

December 1, 2018 $50
February 1, 2019 additional $250
April 1, 2019 Not permitted to register for fall semester and subject to immediate dismissal

Refunds

A student whose tuition payments, scholarship, and loans for the semester exceed the amount due will receive a refund. Refund checks are available during the second week of the fall semester and are generally available the first week of the spring semester. Refunds will not be issued until all funding has been received by Juilliard and credited to the student’s account. Checks are available from the Office of Student Accounts.

Withdrawals

If a student wishes to withdraw from the School, written notice must be given to the dean. The official date of withdrawal will be the day the dean is notified or the last day of attendance in any educationally related activity (including participation in performances), whichever is later.

For withdrawals that occur after the semester has begun, financial aid is adjusted, and reimbursement is required. Federal formulas will be applied to calculate the return of government funds. The return of government funds may create a balance due to Juilliard for which the student is then responsible. Students who have borrowed from any student loan program at any time during their academic career should contact the Financial Aid Office to learn more about repayment requirements before withdrawing.

If written notice of withdrawal is received by the dean before the first day of classes of either semester, the student has no responsibility for the semester’s tuition. Students who withdraw during either semester are liable for a portion up to 100 percent of that semester’s tuition, depending on the date of withdrawal, as follows:

Within the first week: 10%  
Within the second week: 25%  
Within the third week: 50%  
Within the fourth week: 75%  
After the fourth week: 100%  


Please note that residence hall refunds for students who withdraw from the School will follow the guidelines set forth in the residence hall contract.

Should a student be dismissed, the same policy of financial aid adjustment and tuition responsibility will apply.

Barnard, Columbia, and Juilliard Exchange Program

If a student wishes to withdraw from the Exchange Program, written notice must be given to the Juilliard School dean. If written notice of withdrawal is received before the first day of classes of either semester, the student has no responsibility for the semester’s tuition. Students who withdraw during the semester are liable for a portion up to 100 percent of that semester’s tuition, depending upon the date of withdrawal, as follows:

Within the first week: 10%  
Within the second week: 50%  
After the second week: 100%  


Should a student be dismissed, the same policy of tuition responsibility will apply.

Residence Hall Fees

Residence hall fees cover room and meals for the fall semester from August 24, 2018, through December 21, 2018 (excluding meals during the Thanksgiving break), and from January 13, 2019, up to May 18, 2019, for the spring semester. Students may select a meal plan from among those offered by the School. All meal plans offered are of comparable value.

Payment and Contract for Residence Hall

Payment

To guarantee a room for the 2018-2019 academic year, returning students must pre-register for fall classes, and, during the sign-up period in April, pay a $150 residence hall reservation fee and sign a housing contract. All first-time college students and other new students must pay a $250 non-refundable enrollment deposit to the Office of Admissions; at the same time, these students must sign a housing contract and pay a $150 residence hall reservation fee. For all students, the $150 fee is retained by the School as a room damage deposit and is returned at the end of the school year, after the facility has been inspected and assessed for individual and common area damage. The residence hall reservation fee is not refundable if a student has signed a housing contract and later chooses not to live in the residence hall. Half of the annual residence hall fees are due from all students by August 13, 2018. The remainder of the residence hall fees are due December 1, 2018. These fees will appear on the tuition bill and may be paid in person, online or by mail to the Office of Student Accounts.

Cancellations

Students wishing to terminate the contract prior to the beginning of the contract period will be assessed charges as follows:

April 18-April 22, 2018 $150 housing reservation fee will be forfeited
April 23, 2018 – May 15, 2018 10% of semester housing charges plus the $150 reservation fee will be forfeited
