2015 Student Tuition & Fees

General Fees per Session
Non-refundable Appication Processing Fee (per applicant, due with application)
2-week instrumental

Tuition and fees charged to students are only approximately 37% of the total cost of attending Birch Creek. Maintaining low costs for all students is made possible by the many donors whose grants and gifts underwrite 63% of actual student costs.

Refund Policy

All requests to cancel enrollment must be made in writing. If cancellation is received 30 days prior to the start of the session, all money except the $50 processing fee will be refunded. Any cancellation made less than 30 days prior to the session will result in forfeiture of all money paid. If a student leaves during a session because of an illness or documented family emergency, a prorated refund will be paid. If a student leaves for other reasons, the balance will not be refunded.
