Students who enroll in private or individual music lessons from Northeast faculty will be charged the private music lesson fees in addition to the costs of other tuition and fees. Students enroll in one (1), two (2), or three (3) hour per week individual music lessons. The classes are conducted for the entire semester. Fees for private lessons will help the College recover a portion of the costs for providing individual instruction. The cost differential is because music majors are required to take classes in individual instruction.



The college offers a plan allowing deferred payment of tuition for students who cannot meet this requirement. Contact the Business Office for complete details on the Deferred Payment Agreement.
