Tuition

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant amount of financial stress on many of our families. We do not want this strain to discourage students from auditioning. There is partial or full tuition assistance available. Please reach out to us with your specific needs by filling out the tuition assistance form.

Tuition Assistance

A sum of money is set aside each year to assist participants who might otherwise be unable to participate in specific events. Applicants must fill out this form in its entirety by Sunday, August 15, 2021.  Applicants will be notified of decisions by Sunday, August 29, 2021. The IYO Board of Directors ensures confidentiality of all applications.

General Information
Payment plans are available for each orchestra. Information regarding these payment plans may be found below. 

Indianapolis Youth Orchestra asks each student in each orchestra to obtain at least $150 in sponsorships from individuals or businesses - many go above and beyond!  These student sponsors will receive mention in each program.  Click here for more information about this program.
 

Refund Policy

Tuition will be fully refunded if the member chooses not to participate prior to the first rehearsal/retreat and this information is submitted in writing or via e-mail to the IYO office prior to the first rehearsal/retreat.

Tuition will be refunded according to this schedule if a member cannot participate in orchestra activities due to documented medical reason or relocation of the student's family only.

 Requests for tuition refunds must be submitted in writing to the IYO office.
