Only students who have registered and paid the appropriate fees, made payment arrangements or are on financial aid/scholarship may participate in MTC classes or performances. All class, private lesson, and production fees are due by the beginning of each term. Registrations may be faxed, mailed, or e-mailed or by using the the online registration form. In addition to tuition and production fees, there is an annual registration fee of $30 (September-August). New Families: All families new to MTC must attend an MTC Back to School Orientation meeting prior to the start of the fall term.
Full tuition payment plus registration fee is due at the time of registration unless prior arrangement with MTC has been made for payment plan. MTC accepts cash, checks or all major credit cards. A $30 fee will be assessed on all returned checks. No class slot will be held for a student without completed/signed registration form and up-to-date tuition. Payment plans are available, call the office for details.
Classes and private lessons are considered to be on a full term basis. Enrolled students withdrawing prior to two weeks before the first class will receive 50% refund of semester tuition. No refunds will be issued later than two weeks before the first class. Registration fees and service charges are not refundable.
Scholarships are available to qualified students on the basis of financial need and availability. An application form and proof of income (via previous year’s federal income tax return) are required. All applications are reviewed annually by the MTC Scholarship Committee. Students may apply for scholarships for classes, productions and summer programs. Awarded scholarships cover up to a maximum of 50% of tuition. Deadline for academic year scholarship applications is September 30. Deadline for Summer scholarships is March 1. There are no scholarships for private lessons. Applications are available in the MTC office or click here.
Make-Up Classes and Lessons
General make-up classes are provided once/term. For example, all Level 1 classes will be made up together at the end of the term. Consult your instructor for the make-up schedule. Students may NOT make up in other sections of the same class (e.g Tuesday Music Theatre 1 students may not make up in Thursday Music Theatre 1). There is ONE PRIVATE LESSON make-up provided/term. Make-up lessons canceled or missed by a student will be considered made up. If make-up lessons are offered twice and refused, the lesson will be considered made up. In addition, lessons canceled due to inclement weather or teacher unavailability will be made up during the semester at a mutually-agreed upon time, or at the end of the term.
Students are expected to attend all classes and lessons regularly and punctually, and are expected to notify MTC if they must miss a class or lesson. If a student misses two consecutive classes and has not contacted MTC, the instructor will contact the parent. Three consecutive unexcused absences are grounds for termination with no refund or credit. Students must pay for all classes or lessons whether taken or missed.
Musicals and Performance Classes
Once a student has auditioned for a musical or performance class and tuition has been paid, should the student drop out, there will be no refund or credit. If a student drops out after the rehearsal process has begun, the student will not be eligible to audition for another MTC musical or performance class for one year.
