Referral Credit

When a currently enrolled CMS student refers a friend, and he/she enrolls, both the referring student and the newly enrolled student will receive a $25 credit. This credit can be applied towards tuition or any other fees. The more friends a CMS student refers, the more credits they can receive. Note: One referral credit per newly enrolled family. Referred families must be new to the CMS program (never enrolled before). For more information, please call the CMS office at 901.678.4244

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.

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.
