A supplementary instruction fee will be charged for participation in a course offering enhanced teaching contact such as Talmud and havruta, and for cantorial courses that require an accompanist.

Fees may be charged in connection with transfer credit or other special credit when costs are incurred by the Academy. The student is responsible for all tuition payable to any other institution in connection with transfer credit.
