tuition financial aid
Tuition & Financial Aid
  • How are financial aid funds credited?

Aid cannot be paid until the student registers and attends classes. Financial aid is disbursed/credited on a quarter-to-quarter basis, with the exception of external grants and stipends. Occasionally a student may have been awarded financial aid and cash payments that exceed tuition and fee expenses. In some instances, funds are not fully credited until the end of the academic year. These policies are not determined by the college, but by the federal or state government that issues the funds. Once excess funds are available, a check will be issued to the student.

  • How do students remain eligible for financial aid?

Student are strongly encouraged to review and follow the Satisfactory Academic Progress guidance in the Student Consumer Information Handbook (available from the Student Financial Services Office). Most types of aid require the student to maintain at least half-time attendance. A student Financial Services Fiscal Counselor can answer questions about changes or new requirements.

  • Do financial aid requirements and programs change?

Yes. The federal and state agencies administering these programs can change eligibility requirements or award amounts. The Student Financial Services staff can answer any questions about changes or new requirements.

  • A Unique Approach to Education
  • Our students want to embark on their college education and career development simultaneously, and they want choices. Students are accepted into one of our specialized Associate of Arts degree programs packed with 16-25 challenging courses per major. They dive right into their coursework and every course is applicable to their major and their career goals. This academic preparation provides students with a foundation of technical, leadership, and strategic skills needed to begin their career from day one.
  • Career Development is the cornerstone of our education and opportunities for student internships abound. Each program's department, as well as our Career Center staff, works with our incredible industry partners to develop special internships and other part-time employment opportunities for our students to complement their coursework. Many of these internships lead to full-time employment upon graduation. Students intern at a notable list of companies including the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, Bebe, NBC Universal, Guess, Anthropologie, Smashbox, Stila, Sony Pictures Television, Mattel Entertainment and Gaming, and E! Entertainment.
