Master of Arts in Art Education Program


Get important updated information about scholarships and financial aid.

When to Pay
Tuition and fees must be paid in full one week prior to the start of classes each semester. An unpaid balance will void your registration, and you will not be able to attend class until your account is paid in full.

In order for a new incoming student to reserve a place in the Summer 2020 MAAE class, the Art Academy must receive a non-refundable registration deposit of $300.00. This registration deposit is credited toward the summer’s tuition. If the student does not attend the Art Academy, this deposit is forfeited.

How to Pay
Tuition and fees may be paid by check, cash, VISA or MasterCard, or through a monthly payment plan offered by an independent tuition payment service.

Refund Policy
If a graduate student withdraws from the Art Academy or drops a class, tuition will be credited computed from the date of withdrawal as officially recorded by the Registrar. The refund policy is as follows:

Summer Session Refund Policy for MAAE Students
Before the end of the first day: 100%
Before the end of the first week: 50%
After the first week: no refund given

The Finance Office calculates and determines all amounts credited to an account and will return any financial aid, grants, loans and scholarship funds as required by the different programs. An open balance will be due in full immediately.

Financial Aid Repayment
Students who receive Federal Title IV Financial Aid and do not complete their classes will be responsible for repaying to the Department of Education unearned portions of aid. During the first 60 percent of a semester, a student is entitled to Title IV funds in direct proportion to the length of time he or she remains enrolled. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60 percent point earns all aid for the semester. Unearned Title IV funds, other than Federal Work Study, must be returned back to the Federal Student Aid Programs. A Return of Title IV Funds Policy statement is available in the Financial Aid and Finance Offices.

Unpaid Accounts and Finance Charges
The Art Academy of Cincinnati will not issue a diploma, transcripts or records, grade reports, statements of recommendation, nor allow future registration to any student whose financial accounts with the Art Academy are not paid in full. All financial accounts must be paid in full prior to the start of classes. A finance charge will be applied to any account with an unpaid balance after the date payments are due and for every month following that the balance is not paid in full. Students with delinquent accounts are referred to a collection agency.
