Students enrolling at Mannes for the first time who are interested in piano, theory, ear training, and other subjects requiring placement should call before registering. Placement exams in these areas are given before the beginning of classes each semester at no additional cost, and prospective students are urged to attend. Contact the Mannes NEXT Office for testing dates and information.
Withdrawals from classes can be made only with the permission of the
director. Students are liable for academic requirements and tuition
payments for the classes in question until an official withdrawal slip
has been filed with the registrar and the bursar.
All requests for withdrawal must be made to the Mannes NEXT Office; an
informal notification of intention to withdraw made to the classroom
teacher does not constitute withdrawal. The last day for official
withdrawal is listed in the calendar; no exceptions will be made. Full
tuition will be refunded for withdrawals made before the first day of
Students dismissed for disciplinary reasons are not entitled to refunds.
The college reserves the right to dismiss any student who does not live up to its standards. Dismissal is regarded as final.
It is expected that general students will be in the Mannes building to
attend their classes and to prepare for classes as needed. Additional
time for preparation is not to exceed three hours a week per
credit-hour. The administration reserves the right to immediately limit
or deny building access and to limit or deny future registration to
students who grossly violate this rule.
Unless otherwise indicated, classes run for one semester of 15 weeks.
All classes are assigned a credit value. In general, classes meeting one
hour a week carry one credit per semester, and courses meeting two
hours a week carry two credits per semester.
The college reserves the right to cancel any course because of insufficient enrollment. Under such circumstances, full refunds will be made to students. The division will make every effort to assist students whose classes were closed out and who wish to make alternative arrangements. In some instances, such arrangements may necessitate tuition adjustments.
