I’m an international student, what is the visa process?

Admitted International students will received an I-20 and Letter of Invitation. You will need to pay the SEVIS Fee online and contact the American Consulate to make an appointment to apply for an M-1 visa. Canadian Students do not need to contact the American Consulate, but they need to bring the I-20, Letter of Invitation, and proof of citizenship to the boarder for entry. For complete details on the visa process CLICK HERE.

When will I know if I have been accepted?

Admission decisions are sent via e-mail in early March. Final wait-list decisions are usually made by the end of April. 

How old is the typical Meadowmount Student?

Our age range is 13 to 30+. Each summer, around half the students at Meadowmount are high school age and half are college students, many in graduate programs. Students must be age 13 or older to live on campus. Talented students under the age of 13 that are accepted must live off-campus and be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times when on campus.

What is the tuition and all the fees to attend Meadowmount?

Full tuition for 7-weeks with on-campus housing, including room, board, lessons, coachings, accompanist fees, infirmary fee, activity fee and a security deposit is $9,100. Tuition for off-campus students including lessons, coachings, accompanist fees, infirmary fee, activity fee and a security deposit is $5,200 for the full session. Click HERE for more information.

How do I sign up for extra lessons?

You can sign up for extra lessons during the online application process. If you decide to take extra lesson after you have been accepted, just notify us of your decision. You can also decline the lessons or add more during the summer. Click HERE for more information.

Can I apply to come for less than seven weeks?

We do not accept partial session students. Attending Meadowmount for the full seven-week session affords the maximum benefit of what Meadowmount has to offer. Students who arrive late or depart early still pay the full seven-week tuition and are not eligible for scholarship or chamber music placement.

How do I find Off-Campus Housing?

Once admitted, we will send out a list of available housing rentals to students requesting off-campus living. This list consists of homes, shared rentals, apartments and room rentals for families or single adults. Meadowmount does not own, inspect, or offer recommendations on these properties. You can request this list at anytime. You can also contact area realtors for more recommendations.

Are there Scholarships?

Scholarships are available. Priority is given to those showing highest merit as demonstrated on the audition. Financial need is used only as a secondary consideration. Scholarships range from full tuition to $1,000 Service Scholarships. 

How do I apply for a scholarship?

You can apply for a Scholarship through the online application. Students must apply for scholarship when filling out the online application and not after being admitted.

I am on the wait list. Now what?

There is still hope! We occasionally find some extra spots in April or May as we plan out the dorm room assignments and finalize the studio lists. Call the office to check your wait list status before you commit to another program.
