Determining Financial Need

In developing a student’s financial aid award package, The New York Conservatory begins by constructing a budget based on the estimated cost of education for the academic year, including tuition, supplies, and living expenses.
A student’s need for financial assistance is defined as the difference between the estimated cost of attendance and the student’s available resources.

Summer Training Programs 2019

We offer a 10% tuition discount for summer programs if tuition is paid in full by March 30. Students who attend summer sessions and then enroll in the two-year degree program will receive a tuition discount equivalent to the summer tuition they paid.
