Enrolling at WCM
WCM began using the ActiveNet On-Line Registration System beginning in the Summer of 2012. All families will have an account that you can use to view an online catalog, sign up for open classes and make online payments.
Because of the special nature of private lessons and auditioned ensembles, these offerings will still be arranged individually through our Registrar's Office.
In order to use the online system to set up your family's account, please click the "Register Now" button above and follow the prompts. Please don't hesitate to call us if you have any questions or comments about our on-line registration. For a password to be set up please contact our office.
The Wausau Conservatory of Music offers many programs throughout the year as well as during the summer. There are times when a class or camp does not receive enough interest. In these instances, WCM reserves the right to cancel those programs with insufficient enrollment. All classes and ensembles will meet for their first scheduled session. In the event that a class is then cancelled, you will be notified and given the opportunity to transfer to another class, if available. If you do not choose to enroll in another class, you will receive a full refund.
Registration for brand new offerings at WCM is on a first-come first-served basis. For existing offerings during the Spring and Summer Semesters, priority is given to current students who register prior to posted deadlines. Every effort is made to accomodate all students and after the priority registration period is over all other registration is based on first-come first-served.
For those WCM offerings that are not handled on-line, registration is best done in person during the published registration weeks. Continuing students may call the office to arrange for a lesson time, but payment must be made by the payment deadline for each semester or the lesson time can not be held. It is assumed that continuing students will maintain the same lesson time for Spring semester unless a request for a change is made or Spring semester payment is not made by the expressed deadline.
AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE that registration is not considered complete until fees and tuition are paid in full, or tuition payment is arranged for. We do accept VISA, Mastercard and DISCOVER for tuition payments. An installment payment plan is also available. Contact the Conservatory Registrar for specifics.
Registration for new students will be accepted at any time if space is available. Please call (715) 845-6279, extension 102 for information on how to register. This is best done during the registration weeks, although the Conservatory will admit new students at any time. While requests for specific teachers can not always be met, student preference for a specific teacher will be honored whenever possible.
