Santa Fe, N.M.—October 2, 2012— Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD) is demonstrating its commitment to affordable college costs by lowering tuition across four programs and eliminating course material fees for all programs – changes that will help both current and prospective students.

SFUAD is lowering tuition for its Graphic Design, Creative Writing, Digital Arts and Arts Management programs from $28,836 to $17,800. The tuition reduction for the four programs will be implemented in spring 2013 and tuition will remain flat for the 2013-2014 academic year. In addition, SFUAD will keep tuition for its programs in Art, Contemporary Music, Moving Image Arts, Performing Arts and Photography at the current rate for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Further demonstrating a commitment to affordability, SFUAD is also eliminating course material fees for all programs beginning in the spring of 2013. Depending on the program, this change could save a student up to several thousand dollars each year.

“We at Santa Fe University of Art and Design believe all talented art and design students should have access to affordable, quality higher education,” said Larry Hinz, president of SFUAD. “We believe making our tuition more affordable will allow more students the opportunity to study in Santa Fe and provide them with the foundation they need for a long and successful career.”
