Additional fees include:
1. Applied music fee
The hour-per-week applied instruction for majors in the Department of Music is covered in the usual fee, but there are separate charges for additional instruction or for private lessons for those who are not music majors. Fees per semester for individual instruction in voice, piano, organ, guitar or orchestral instruments are: one-hour lesson per week $770 and one half-hour lesson per week $412. The fee per semester for group instruction in voice, piano and guitar is $260 (two hours per week). The charge for use of the practice facilities of $40 is billed in the fall and covers both the fall and spring semesters. *Note: lesson and class fees will not be refunded to students who drop after the second week of instruction.
2. Student accident and sickness insurance
All students attending Davidson are automatically enrolled in the student health insurance plan. A premium of $1,300 for coverage from August 9, 2013 to August 8, 2014 is charged to each student's account. (Students studying abroad are not charged for health insurance.) Students covered by comparable insurance may be exempted from the student insurance program by submitting an online waiver verifying adequate coverage at www.ahpcare.com/davidson. The waiver must be completed and submitted no later than August 9, 2013 as the College must pay for the premiums in August. If you have been charged for insurance and have provided the waiver information, please deduct the insurance premium from your Total Due.
As part of the Affordable Healthcare Act, the Department of Health & Human Services mandated significant changes to student healthcare plans, resulting in the increased premium. The most significant improvement increases the plan maximum from $100,000 to $500,000 for the 2013-14 plan year.
3. Enrollment deposit
All students are required to make a $500 deposit prior to enrollment. This deposit is maintained on account during the student’s enrollment, and is refunded, net of fees and fines, following graduation. A student must maintain the $500 enrollment deposit in order to be granted on-leave status.
4. Study abroad administrative fee
A student studying abroad on a non-Davidson program for a semester or year is charged a non-refundable $350 administrative fee. This amount is billed to the student’s account when the completed “leave” request form is submitted to the Registrar and Business Services.
