The Universal Access Fee allows full access to all campus shops and computer facilities and will be added to the tuition amount.

As the College continues to strive toward the highest level of education, increases in tuition typically occur once a year in the Fall Term as noted above. Students should plan for such usual increases.

Due Dates and Payment Process

Tuition and fees can be paid at the Cashier Window located at 1111 South Arroyo Pkwy, Suite 410.

Student tuition is due and payable by Friday of the first week of class (Week 1). If full payment is not received by this date, a one-time non-refundable Payment Plan Fee of $75 will be assessed. Tuition may be paid by check, credit card, cash, cashier’s check or wire transfer. Payments can be made in person with the Cashier or online at if paying by credit card.

If you are receiving financial aid, those amounts will be credited to your account and deducted from the amount due. This can be viewed online via your ArtCenter account during Orientation Week.

Refunds on overpayments of tuition are available only after tuition and fees are paid in full and your account has a credit balance.
