Fee Policy

Cadet Fees

It is the policy of New Orleans Military and Maritime Academy that fees charged to cadets shall not prevent economically disadvantaged cadets from having access to a quality education. NOMMA does not charge fees as a condition of or requirement before enrolling in the school.  NOMMA does charge fees for specific items, events, or activities that are applicable to the cadet enrolled. Cadet fees help cover workbooks/journals, daily agendas that cadets may keep, and technology management, maintenance and safety.  Other fees (field trips, college tours, school event admission fees) may apply as such activities arise.  Failure to pay any required fee shall not result in the withholding of a cadet’s education record.  All fees listed below may be paid by cash or check, and shall be collected by the NOMMA Front Office.

Cadets are responsible for any and all applicable fees. Any fee not authorized under this policy shall be prohibited.  If you believe your family qualifies for an Economic Hardship Waiver, please contact the counseling department. 

The parent(s)/guardian(s) of cadet(s) who request financial assistance should contact the parent liaison (grade level counselor) and request the "Economic Hardship Fee Waiver Form.” The parent/guardian must complete the form in its entirety and return it to the school.

Financial assistance is available for those who qualify; assistance can include full waiver, partial waiver, and/or payment plans.  NOMMA will review each form to determine the appropriate level of assistance. The following factors concerning the cadet and their family may be considered in the determination of whether to grant a waiver:

(1)    Receipt of unemployment benefits or public assistance;
(2)    Foster care status or caring for children in foster care;
(3)    Homelessness;
(4)    Current service in the military or service within the past year;
(5)    Eligibility for free and reduced lunch; and
(6)    Status as an emancipated minor.

All records and documents associated with fee assistance requests are confidential. The parent/guardian will be notified of the assistance decision in writing and/or by phone, via the contact information that you provide on this form.  NOMMA may ask parents and guardians who do not meet the criteria above to provide additional documentation supporting their requests for a reduction or waiver of student fees. If a parent/guardian disagrees with the denial of assistance they may appeal the decision to the Commandant, in writing, within five (5) days of notice of the decision.
