The financial aid office uses an estimate of direct and indirect costs to determine how much financial aid a student may be eligible for. Direct costs include tuition, fees, some books and supplies, and institutional housing. Indirect costs include estimates of other living expenses, transportation and personal expenses. Housing costs may be considered direct or indirect. Examples of the costs of attendance estimates used can be found by clicking here.

Tuition includes the cost of the courses needed to meet the graduation requirements for all programs within the same area of study. As required by the Department of Education (ED), the programs are organized according to their CIP (Classification of Instructional Program) category, which is defined by the ED, and their degree level (Associates, Bachelors, etc.); for example, all Bachelor level programs in graphic design are considered to be in the same CIP category.
The tuition calculation shown is the average of all programs in the same CIP category, degree level, and program length within a 10% variance of each other offered by any of the Art Institute campuses.
For example, if a graphic design program (Bachelor's level) is offered at two different Art institute campuses (one offers the program with $24,000 tuition and the other offers a slightly modified program with $26,000 tuition), the average tuition shown will be $25,000. The tuition for your program, then, may be higher or lower than the average tuition shown, depending on the program and campus you select.
Tuition is generally adjusted once a year; this tuition calculation is effective July 2013. Tuition costs can vary by campus, program, and degree level. Students who transfer credits from other institutions or successfully test out of courses will see a corresponding reduction in their tuition costs. Tuition does not include any course-related fees such as supplies or laboratory fees.
A number of Art Institute campuses offer school-sponsored housing to their students. The room charges include the cost of the living area for the student, the utilities, and resident activities; the housing costs will vary depending on the building chosen by the student as well as the type of room selected (single vs. double occupancy, shared vs. private bath, etc.). If the school provides shuttle service between the housing and the campus, it is included in this charge. An estimate for the cost of board (food) is included in â€œBoardâ€ for those locations, where available. The Art Institute of New York City does not provide board (food) with school-sponsored housing.
There are a limited number of campuses which may offer a separate meal plan to their resident students; your admissions representative can provide you with that information.
As required by the ED, room charges are averaged across all Art Institute campuses that offer housing and dining programs and are included here; your room charges may be higher or lower than the average room cost shown, depending on the campus you select.
All Art Institute campuses are in the process of converting from traditional textbooks to electronic media. A digital resource fee is charged for every course. This fee provides students access to an Electronic Library and online versions of textbook(s) and, in some cases, other electronic media which is integrated into the course. The fee is $50 per course, so a program consisting of 40 courses would have a fee of $2,000 (40 x $50). This fee includes all applicable taxes.
As required by the ED, the books and digital fee charges are averaged across all Art Institute campuses; your charges may be higher or lower than the fee shown, depending on the campus and program selected.
Every program has a unique fee structure based on the length of the program and degree type. Please refer to the school catalogue or the program Enrollment Agreement for more detailed information.

Q: What are my financing options to pay for the program?
A: In addition to any eligible grants or scholarships, 84% of graduates of this program used loans to finance their education. The median debt for graduates that received loans is as follows:
As required by the U.S. Department of Education (ED), median debt is calculated using data from students who graduated from this program – as defined by CIP (Classification of Instruction Program) – at this institution or location and at this degree level between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013.
Median debt is determined by first calculating the aggregate debt of all students grouped by a combination of program as defined by CIP, institution or location, and degree level. This debt includes Title IV loans, private loans and institutional loans. As required by ED, it includes debt from all enrollments attributable to that student’s social security number, not just the current enrollment.
Once each student’s debt is calculated, the students are arranged by the amount of their debt, from smallest to largest; note that students with $0 debt are included in the list. Finally, the middle student from the list is selected and their debt is considered the median debt. For example, if there are five students in the program and their total debt is $1,000, $3,000, $6,000, $9,000, and $12,000, the median debt for the program would be the third on the list (since there are an odd number of students, the third value is the “middle” value) – $6,000.
Per ED, we do not disclose debt when the number of students who graduated from a program (as defined by CIP) at an institution or location and at specific degree level during the reporting period is less than ten.
Q: How long will it take me to complete this program?
A: No students graduated from this program during the government-mandated reporting period of July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013.
As required by the U.S. Department of Education, this number represents the percentage of those who completed the program on-time and graduated between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012.
Positive Influences to On Time Completion Rates: Students who transfer into the program with prior approved credits and who take and pass courses as outlined in the enrollment agreement.
Negative Influences to On Time Completion Rates: Students who do not enroll in each term for the number of credits required to complete the program on time, students who fail or withdraw from courses, students who must take remedial courses and students who chose to not attend full-time.
We do not imply your results will be the same as these former graduates.
Per ED, we do not disclose completion information when the number of students who graduated from a program (as defined by CIP) at an institution or location and at specific degree level during the reporting period is less than ten. We also do not report completion information when there are no graduates during the reporting period.
Q: What percentage of students find employment in their field or a related field?
A: No students graduated during the reporting period at this institution.
Q: What are the job opportunities for graduates of this program?
A: For more information on job opportunities in this field of study, see the following links on career paths that may be open to you after studying in this field: The job opportunities links are for general information purposes. The program you have selected could have different outcomes. Please check with your admissions registrar for detailed information. (CIP #50.0406)
