Making it easy for you to understand the costs of your art school education
College affordability is a major concern for all of the students and families we work with, and we want to make sure we are always giving you the clearest picture of what the cost of attending SFUAD looks like. While there are many factors that add to cost of attendance beyond tuition, things like general fees, housing, and meals, there are also a number of institutional scholarships and federal aid available to help balance out costs. When you subtract your financial aid and scholarships from total tuition, fees and room & board, you end up with your out of pocket costs.
In the example to the right, we have provided you with an idea of the average costs per year for a student like you studying at SFUAD. Remember, your situation will be unique and these figures are averages only. These averages cannot take into account any outside financial assistance you may receive due to additional scholarships and awards, military benefits, etc. Please also be aware that housing and meal costs don’t necessarily go away if you don’t live on campus and should still be included as part of a college budget. As a service for our students, SFUAD provides a number of payment plan options to help you keep your finances balanced and your college career on track. For a full picture of your personal cost of attendance, be sure to apply for scholarships, submit your FAFSA, and discuss your award letter with your Enrollment and Financial Aid advisors.
Refer to the table below for a look at tuition based on program, housing and meal plan options and general fees.
