Additional student fees to cover expenses such as music lessons or study abroad administrative fee, or charges such as fines or vehicle registration may also appear on your student bill.
Applied Music Fee
While not required, all music majors are encouraged to take applied music lessons. The college covers the fee for applied music lessons in one instrument or voice for music majors, but there are separate charges for additional instruction or for private lessons for those who are not music majors.
The charge for use of the practice facilities is $40. It is billed in the fall and covers both the fall and spring semesters.
Lesson and class fees will not be refunded if you drop after the second week of instruction.
You are required to make a $1,000 deposit prior to enrollment. As per your acceptance letter, one-half ($500) of your enrollment deposit is applied to your first tuition bill. The second-half ($500) is maintained in a holding account while you are enrolled. Upon your graduation, the held deposit is refunded-minus any fees and fines. You must maintain the $500 enrollment deposit balance in order to be granted on-leave status.
Insurance - Student Accident & Sickness
You are automatically enrolled in our student health insurance plan. If you are studying abroad, through a non-Davidson program, you are not charged for health insurance. The premium for 2020-2021 is $2,295.
If you are covered by comparable insurance, you may be exempted from our program by submitting an online waiver verifying adequate coverage. The waiver must be completed and submitted no later than August 1, since we must pay for the premiums in August. If you have been charged for insurance and have provided the waiver information, your account will be credited $2,295.
Insurance - Tuition Refund
The college offers tuition-refund insurance through AWG Dewar, Inc. A charge of $394 will be included on the fall tuition bill. Students who wish to decline this coverage may complete an online waiver. Detailed information may be obtained by calling 617-774-1555 or online on the AWG Dewar, Inc. website.
Class of 2023 & Future Classes
Davidson College will follow a home tuition policy for fall, spring and academic year study abroad. Under this policy, students who study abroad with a partner program will pay Davidson's tuition, and the college will pay the partner program's tuition cost to that program (up to Davidson's tuition fee). Students will pay all other program costs, including a non-refundable deposit, directly to the partner program. This policy aligns Davidson's practices with many other U.S. colleges and universities.
A fee of $50 will be charged to register each vehicle kept on campus.
You may be charged for late registration, late drop/add, library fines, damaged property, parking fines, and lost post office keys. A penalty of $20 will be charged on all returned checks.
