Tuition and Fees

After four years, SFUAD can cost up to $40,000 less than the average tuition for competing art schools.*

At Santa Fe University of Art and Design, we understand the price of an arts education can originally be alarming, but the focus should be on the much lower actual cost to you, and of course its enormously high value as an investment in your future! On average, we provide 6 million in institutional scholarships and financial aid to entering students each year!** Award amounts are decided on an individual basis and are designed to award the strengths and achievements of each admitted student. Our portfolio and admissions process means your application is seen by the chair of your program, and is processed by a person, not a computer. We take pride in our individualized attention, not only when it comes to admissions/financial aid, but in the classroom where we have a 14:1 student to faculty ratio!

Don’t cut corners or sell yourself short when it comes to receiving an education in the arts. Find your program of interest below to see an annual breakdown of cost and aid that will be available to you!
