Billing Information

Billing Process

  1. Statements are generated on a monthly basis and emailed to your ndm.edu account.
  2. Payment is usually due one month before the start of the semester for students who took advantage of early registration.
  3. Follow-up billings reflecting additional charges or adjustments continue on a monthly basis.

Late Payments

If a student fails to pay by the payment due date, that student:

  • Will incur a monthly late payment fee; and
  • May be barred from attending class.

Financial Obligations

Financial obligations incurred or billed during a semester must be settled before a student may:

  • Register for classes;
  • Make a room deposit for another semester; or 
  • Receive final grades.

Transcripts and diplomas cannot be released until all financial obligations have been met.

Payment Options

Students should confer with the Business Office regarding additional payment options.

The University reserves the right to require cash or a cashier’s check at its discretion.

Refund Policies

Refund Schedule

Note: See semester schedule for exact dates.

  • Before the first day of classes: 100%
  • Before the second class meeting: 90%

For individual music lessons, no refunds will be made after the first class session.

Tuition Adjustment Policy

Tuition adjustments are based upon the total tuition due for all courses in any given semester. They are made on a percentage basis dependent on the date that the written withdrawal request is received in the registrar’s office.

Tuition adjustment schedules, with the appropriate dates and percentages, are published in the course schedules at the beginning of each semester.

Withdrawal Requests

Telephone messages, communications with faculty members or advisors, and nonattendance at class are not valid methods of withdrawing from classes and do not obligate the University to refund all or part of the tuition.

The fact that a student has not attended a class has no impact on tuition adjustment. 

Non-Payment

Non-payment of tuition without proper notification to the registrar’s office of withdrawal from classes does not obligate the tuition adjustme

Credit Balances

When the application of federal financial aid, institutional awards, outside scholarships and other payments are recorded to a student account results in a credit balance, a refund will be issued to the student. 

Parent PLUS loans are processed per financial regulations and the refund may be issued to the parent.
