NOTE

The tuition amounts listed above are for sample costs only. Each student’s actual tuition amount will be determined by the number of actual academic credits for which a student registers.

The budget allowances listed above cannot be exceeded for calculation of eligible Financial Aid; however, the costs associated with each item may be different for each student, and students who purchase health/medical insurance may request a financial aid budget increase.

All second-year (or third-year in the case of transfers as juniors) BFA students majoring in Graphic Design and Digital Media Design should add approximately $4,500 to their maximum budget amounts as the estimated purchase price of a required laptop/notebook computer. Students in other programs who purchase laptops may also request financial aid budget increases.

Each graduating senior will be charged a $150 graduation fee. Graduation fee is a non-budget expense that must be paid out-of-pocket.

Tuition rate for Associate of Fine Arts students is $1062 per credit hour. The above sample budget is based on 15 credits per semester.
