Tuition is $3,640 per trimester. To ease the financial timing of these payments for our students, tuition can be paid in monthly installments. Upon acceptance to the school, a one-time registration fee of $100.00 is required. In addition, a $100.00 tuition deposit is required prior to the first trimester and is credited to the final trimester's tuition.
The Chicago School of Violin Making does not require that students purchase tools from the school, however, the school strongly recommends the acquisition of high-quality tools as soon as possible. Student tools will be used early in the trimester and many on the first day. Frequently, quality tools can be economically purchased used. The school does offer a tool-kit for purchase that contains all the basic tools. If a student is already in possession of specific items, he or she may contact the school to purchase only those tools necessary. The cost of purchasing a complete pre-selected tool-kit is $440. Please download the Tool Kit documentation for further details.
