Tuition Assistance:  CMS has a limited number of financial aid awards available to assist families in need.  Financial aid awards are partial (10-30% off of tuition) and eligibility is determined by gross household income and number of household members. Financial aid awards are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis and are funded as long as there are available resources. For more information, please call the CMS office at 901.678.4244.

Camp/Institute Early Bird Discount:  Deduct $25 if paid in full by May 1, 2014

Senior Citizens (60+) Discount:  10%

U of M Employee/Dependent Discount:  5%

Senior discount, U of M discount and financial aid awards apply to tuition only and are limited to one discount per student. Other fees such as:  housing, meals, registration fee, parking permit and CMS t-shirt must be paid in full.


Students are expected to be present at each class, lesson and/or camp.  Lessons will not be made up if cancelled by a student nor will there be an adjustment made to tuition.  Lessons will be made up if the teacher cancels a lesson.


Tuition will be refunded in full only if illness or other conditions prevent the teacher from teaching, or if the University, for any reason, rejects a student's enrollment.  If a student withdraws prior to the beginning of summer session I, summer session II or any of the camp dates below, a refund of tuition, less $30, will be made.

Return Check Service Charge $30: Applies to each check/draft or credit card returned unpaid by your financial institution. This fee will also be assessed if a keying error on your part results in your financial institution's failure to honor the draft.


Students are occasionally photographed or video recorded during CMS activities and these photos or videos may be used to advertise or promote the CMS program. By enrolling in the CMS program, you agree to this policy. However, if you do not want your child's photographs or videos to be used for CMS publications, please submit a written notice of this upon registration.


In order to guarantee camp placement, a non-refundable registration fee must be received at the time of registration.


All CMS students must be taught at the University or an approved satellite location. Due to insurance purposes, teachers may not teach CMS students in their homes.


All vehicles parked in General Parking on the U of M Campus before 7:00 p.m. (including the Park Avenue Campus) must display a parking hangtag. Hangtags are available for $2 per day at the Parking Office, 505 Zach Curlin St. Parking is also available in the Deloach parking garage (behind CCFA building) for $2/hr.
