Conservatory Schedules & Policies

Payment
Ensembles and classes are offered in two terms: fall and winter. Payment for these classes must be made by the first class of each term.

Private lessons are offered as lesson blocks per term (Fall & Winter terms = 13 lessons, Summer term is flexible in terms of the number of lessons – this will be determined by the individual Instructor in consultation with the Conservatory Administrator). Payment in full must be made at the beginning of each block.

Payments must be made at the Conservatory office, Rm 22A, Memorial Hall, 9:00-4:00 pm, Mon.-Fri. by cheque, cash or credit card.  Payment by debit can be made at the College of Extended Learning, 2nd floor of Wu Centre. Registrations using credit card may also be done by phone or fax (453-4697). Cheques should be made payable to “University of New Brunswick” and may not be postdated.   Payment should not be given to the instructor, and UNB Conservatory is not responsible for payments that are not made at the Conservatory office or at the College of Extended Learning.

Refunds
Full payment is due at registration. There is no reduction in tuition for students who join the class late or miss class(es). Non-attendance does not constitute official withdrawal. A 100% refund of the program tuition fee will be issued if requested five business days prior to the beginning of the class. This must be done either in person or in writing to the UNB Conservatory. Courses are conditional on enrollment. A full refund is issued in the event that a course is cancelled. If a refund is requested after the start date of the class a $25 administration fee will be applied.

Medical Circumstances

For students who are required to discontinue their course/program for medical reasons, a pro-rated amount of the tuition fee will be refunded to the portion of the course/program not yet completed after the withdrawal request is received. 

All medical requests must be made in writing and be fully supported and documented by a practicing medical physician with the Medical Association. (See UNB Undergraduate Calendar for specific allowable medical reasons.)

Attendance—Private Lessons
Lessons are scheduled by the instructor. Lessons missed due to instructor absence will be made up at a mutually convenient time.  Student must give 24 hours notice if not attending a lesson (except in the case of illness) or it will not be made up. Lessons missed by the student for reasons other than illness will be made up at the discretion of the instructor. Please consult your instructor for their specific policy.

Attendance—Ensemble
Successful ensemble practice is dependant on full attendance. Students are expected to attend all regularly scheduled rehearsals and the end of term concerts in December and May. Other special performances and extra rehearsals may be scheduled.

Ensembles and group classes take place at Memorial Hall, UNB. Private lessons may be at Memorial Hall or at another location which is determined by the instructor.
