illness (for private study).
Any request to withdraw from
classes or lessons must be made in writing to the UD Community Music School office via email@example.com. Nonattendance or verbal withdrawal to a CMS
faculty or staff member does not constitute an official withdrawal. The date of
withdrawal will be considered to be the date when written notice is received in
the UDCMS office. Upon withdrawal, a full refund will be made only if written
notification is received at least one week prior to the start of the first
class or lesson, and four weeks prior to the start of summer camps. Note: Due to the cost of running the camps, refunds are not given for the Musical Theatre Camps.
Once a CMS session has begun, refunds will only be made at the discretion of the CMS Direction in extreme cases involving serious
illness, death, or relocation.
A ten dollar ($10) processing
fee will be charged for all refunds.

Summer Camps: No refund is granted for missed days.
Tardiness: Private Study Instructors are not required to wait more than ten minutes for late students. Students that arrive later than ten minutes after the scheduled start of a lesson will be counted as unexcused.
Any private study lesson missed as a result of a teacher’s absence will be made up. A substitute teacher may be provided in the case of teacher illness for lessons/classes, or the lesson/class will be made up at the end of the semester by the regular teacher.

faculty and staff do not supervise children waiting in hallways before and/or
after classes/lessons. Children are under supervision during their instruction
time only. Neither instructors nor administrators are responsible for
supervising children outside of teaching time.
To continue to ensure your
child’s safety, our policy is not to have teachers alone with students;
however, in private study lessons, one teacher will be alone with one student
in a music practice room. We ask parents to be involved in keeping their
children safe in these situations. All practice rooms have windows in the
doors, and parents are encouraged to peek in on lessons at random intervals and
monitor your child’s behavior and comfort level with their teacher.
All CMS employees have completed the University's Protection of Minors compliances including a Criminal Background Check, Child Protection Registry clearance, and best-practice training.
