Registration Policies

All registrations include a non-refundable registration fee of $25. Please check the Music Prep Calendar for important registration dates and deadlines. All registrations should be done online. Please see your specific program page for further details.


  • Online Registration requires credit/debit card payment (Visa/Mastercard accepted)
  • Outstanding balances: NKU Music Preparatory will use internal collection methods to recover outstanding account balances. Once a balance is deemed past due, NKU Music Preparatory will send one electronic invoice and attempt two phone calls. After two weeks, the student will be dropped from the program.
  • After 120 days, outstanding balances will be turned over to the university's collections agency and handled as per university policy.


  • All refunds are in the form of Music Prep credit, less a $25 registration fee. There are no cash, check, or credit-card refunds.
  • For academic-year and semester programs, credits cannot be issued after the second week of the semester. For summer programs, there are no credits issued after June 1.
  • There are no credits issued due to:
    • Cancelled/missed rehearsals, cancelled/missed classes, or unused lessons cancelled/unattended by the student.
    • Inclement weather cancellations/closings.
    • A student being removed from a program.
    • A switch to all-virtual instruction if the university requires it.
