Additional costs for each term include required course supplies and living expenses.

ArtCenter does not currently offer dormitories, and living costs vary greatly based on the type of housing students choose. Additionally, we ask each student to look at his or her own lifestyle to estimate these costs.

The cost of supplies varies by major, and students will receive specific supply lists from faculty in each class during the first week of classes. The amounts listed below are general estimates.

  • Housing and food: $6,700 (living away from home); $4,342 (living at home)
  • Supplies and books: $2,000
  • Transportation: $1,400
  • Miscellaneous/personal: $1,800
