If you want to be at the Art Academy—if you know that you belong here—we’ll help you find the money to make it happen.
The Art Academy’s tuition and fees are 18 percent lower, on average, than those of other independent colleges of art and design in this region. Most of our students receive some form of financial aid, ranging from competitive scholarships to need-based grants and loans.
But the financial aid process is like a challenging piece of art: You have to work to understand it. Let us help you interpret it. We’ll direct you toward available resources that meet your needs. And we’ll work with you, not against you. You won’t take a number and wait in line.
The Art Academy is proud to offer a new tool, the Net Price Calculator, to assist families in planning financially for college. The link to the Net Price Calculator can be found in the toolbar to the left of this page. The calculator will require you to input personal financial and admissions data in order to give you an approximation of your out-of-pocket costs. Be aware that the calculator cannot take every variable into account, and you should not consider your result to be anything more than an estimate. For more detailed information about your expected costs and aid options, consult the Financial Aid Office.
You can rest assured that the Art Academy's Financial Aid Office will provide you with the information you need to make sound financial decisions regarding your education. And each Financial Aid employee is held to the strictest ethical principles as defined by our code of conduct.
