Payment of Enrollment Deposit
Newly admitted undergraduate students wishing to reserve their places in the next entering class must pay the enrollment deposit by May 1. Newly admitted graduate students must pay the enrollment deposit by April 15. If the enrollment deposit is not received by the deadline indicated, a student’s place at Juilliard will not be guaranteed. The enrollment deposit is not refundable. Enrollment deposits are applied as a credit towards charges for the student’s start term.
Payment of Tuition
A bill for half of the annual tuition and all applicable fees will be available online in July and must be paid (in U.S. funds) by August 13, 2023. A bill for the second half of the tuition will be available in November and must be paid by December 1, 2023. 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 by the due date.
A deferred payment plan for tuition, fees, and on-campus room and board charges is available via Nelnet. Information on this plan may be obtained by contacting the Office of Student Accounts or online in Cadence, the Juilliard student portal.
Note: Full tuition scholarships are provided for all students admitted to the Historical Performance, Artist Diploma in Opera Studies, Artist Diploma in Performance, and Doctoral programs. The following Artist Diploma programs are tuition free:
- Jazz Studies
- String Quartet Studies
Please note, however, that all students will be charged the Student Health Insurance Fee and the Orientation 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:
|August 13, 2023||$50|
|September 30, 2023||additional $250|
|December 1, 2023||Not permitted to register for spring semester and subject to immediate dismissal|
|December 1, 2023||$50|
|January 31, 2024||additional $250|
|March 1, 2024||Not permitted to register for fall semester and subject to immediate dismissal|
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 and will be distributed to student mailboxes when possible.
Leave of Absence and Withdrawals
If a student wishes to withdraw from the School, written notice must be given to the Provost’s Office. The official date of withdrawal will be the day the Provost 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, scholarship may be pro-rated, and federal student aid may be cancelled, based on the number of calendar days attended. 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 Provost 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 Provost. 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:||25%|
|After the second week:||100%|
Payment and Contract for Residence Hall
To guarantee a room for the 2023-2024 academic year, returning students must pre-register for fall classes, and, during the sign-up period in May, 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. Students have the option of signing a two-year contract to lock in the current rate for the next academic year.
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, 2023. The remainder of the residence hall fees are due December 1, 2023. These fees will appear on the tuition bill and may be paid in person, online or by mail to the Office of Student Accounts.
Residence Hall Charges
|Room Type||Academic Year Rate||Two-Year Rate *|
*Students who signed a two year contract last academic year (2022-2023) are eligible for this rate.
Students may elect to sign a two-year housing contract which secures the room rate schedule for the current and subsequent academic year. This does not guarantee the equivalent room type for the following academic year. Students are required to pay the housing reservation fee each academic year.
Students wishing to terminate the contract prior to the beginning of the contract period will be assessed charges as follows:
CONTRACT TERMINATION SCHEDULE FOR 2023-2024 ACADEMIC YEAR
|Date of contract signature – May 15||$150 housing reservation fee will be forfeited|
|May 16 – June 15||25% of semester housing charges, plus forfeiture of the housing reservation fee|
|June 16 – July 15||50% of semester housing charges, plus forfeiture of the housing reservation fee|
|July 16 – August 1||75% of semester housing charges, plus forfeiture of the housing reservation fee|
|On or after August 2||100% of semester housing charges, plus forfeiture of the housing reservation fee, unless the student withdraws from the School. In such an event, charges will be reduced only to the extent indicated on the School refund schedule outlined on the Tuition and Financial Aid Web Page.|
