Withdrawal

An official withdrawal refers to a withdrawal in writing.

Email notification is accepted as an official withdrawal over the holiday weekend in the fall term and over the first weekend in the spring term. Any student added during the first week of a term must have their tuition and fees paid by that Friday.

The New York Conservatory can administratively withdraw a student at any time for violation of any school policy.
