Materials Fees
In addition to tuition, each program has a Materials Fee to cover items received by students, such as books, handouts and project supplies. This fee is $90 for the CORE Program, and $15 for the ADVANCED Program.

Student Housing Costs
To maximize convenient scheduling, we offer housing that is within a very short walk to our studios. Options include modern cabins shared by 4 to 6 students, and dorm-style houses with single/double room assignments. All are air-conditioned and have kitchen/bath facilities. Cookware and utensils are provided, but students are responsible for their own meal preparation, housekeeping and bed linens. A convenience store and laundry are within easy walking distance. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the RECW campus.

Cabin - $60/week
Dorm - $90/week (2 per room)
Dorm - $120/week (private room)


Additional housing options exist about 7 miles away. These commercially available apartments are sometimes available to students that desire more private arrangements. The costs are higher than on-campus choices and are not determined by RECW. Having a car is required for these off-campus housing options.

Admission Requirements
Recording Workshop students must be at least 18 years old at the start of classes. Exceptions are sometimes made for students that are 17. In these cases, Registration Forms must be signed by parent or legal guardian and high-school transcripts must be submitted for admission to be considered.

High-school graduate reading and basic math skills are necessary, and classroom participation requires conversational English.

Recording Workshop maintains strict maximum class sizes. Admission is subject to available space and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Performance Requirements
Through quizzes and testing, students are given feedback of their performance several times during their training. Scores are presented as percentages compared to a class average. An overall final evaluation score is calculated for each student based on a combination of written test scores, skill test scores and subjective observations of studio performance. A student’s final evaluation cannot be more than 20% below the class average to receive RECW certification. This final evaluation is compiled and mailed with certification approximately two weeks after the end of the session.

Student Conduct and Enrollment Termination
Students are expected to conduct themselves as a good member of the RECW community. Recording Workshop reserves the right to terminate the enrollment of any student guilty of disruptive behavior or destruction of Recording Workshop property. Tuition refund in such a situation will be determined in accordance with school policy concerning voluntary withdrawal.

Withdrawal and Tuition Refund
All tuition payments are 100% refundable up to the start of classes. Students who withdraw after partially completing their training are refunded their tuition less a daily charge. Our CORE Program has a daily charge equal to 5% of tuition. The ADVANCED Program has a daily charge equal to 10% of tuition. No refunds are given after the completion of one half of any Recording Workshop program. Students are responsible for providing direct and verifiable communication of their withdrawal request.

Subject to administrative approval, students who must withdraw from classes due to personal illness or emergency circumstances may return at a future Recording Workshop session to complete their training with no additional tuition charge.

Update Policy
To allow for the continual improvement of its training programs, Recording Workshop reserves the right to update curriculum and studio content as described without notice. This same right is reserved to modify procedures and policies for the betterment of RECW systems and the student experience. All RECW Recording Workshop policies will be created in accordance to the rules as established by the Ohio State Board of Career Colleges and Schools, 30 E. Broad Street, Suite 2481, Columbus, OH 43215. Phone 877-275-4219.
