In case of cancellation due to late payment of tuition fees, in order for the student to continue his studies, he is obliged to re-pay the registration fee.
Fees paid are non-refundable. If a student wishes to discontinue his studies at the Conservatory before the end of the academic year, the cancellation shall be considered granted only after the filling of the relevant form of cancellation and submission to the Conservatory Secretariat. A student who has paid the annual tuition fees cash or by credit card and wishes to discontinue courses has the right to credit the balance created from the month following the cancellation until the last month of the school year. The balance is credited to the student account held by the company, so as to enable the student to use it for the purchase of musical instruments, music books, stereo and general products sold by Philippos Nakas S.A.
The school year runs until June 30. In case of discontinuation in the month of June, the Conservatory cannot guarantee the student to continue his studies at the same level as the other students, due to the obviously reduced attendance and incomplete knowledge of the syllabus.
A student enrolled in the classical music department from the previous academic year, regardless of the date of his re-enrollment, has to pay a tuition fee from the month of September.
If the tuition changes due to a change of class, level or teacher, the difference that will occur for the remaining period of study until the end of the school year:
- will be calculated equally on the monthly fees due /or - will be paid by credit card in interest-free installments depending on the time the change was made /or - will be paid in cash at the Conservatory
The exams are mandatory for all students of the Conservatory, regardless of field, class and level of study. Students who are not yet placed in a special level, are also required to take the exams.
The exams are paid in cash or by credit card to the Conservatory at least one week before the exam date. In case of late payment, the student has no right to take the exams.
A receipt is issued for each payment. No other form of certification is applicable for tuition fees.

Tuition fees at the Conservatory (as in all Greek Conservatories, and schools) are annual, and vacation time (i.e. Christmas, Easter) is included in the amount of annual fees. Monthly payments are enacted only in order to facilitate students during their studies. Upon the enrollment the student reserves a certain time in his professor's schedule, and secures his place in the conservatory, therefore studies must not be interrupted and start again according to the student's availability.
