Other special fees may be assessed, depending on program (orientation, commencement, board, and activity fees, etc.). Total estimated expenses for a single student are $43,330 for Music and $41,643 for Divinity.

By the beginning of their final semester, students must have completed all ISM curricular requirements or be enrolled in the remaining required courses. Failure to do so will result in the termination of all ISM financial aid in the final semester. This does not apply to federal loans.
Tuition Rebate and Refund Policy
Students who withdraw from the Institute for any reason are subject to the tuition rebate and refund policy of the relevant professional school in which they are jointly enrolled. See the respective bulletins of the schools for more information.
