ArtCenter offers students tuition and fee forgiveness in certain circumstances.

Tuition Forgiveness

Any unpaid balance of tuition and fees for the full term, including any unpaid installment plan payments, is due and payable immediately when a student withdraws (or is dismissed) from the College for any reason.

Additionally, students who withdraw during Week 1 of the term will be charged a $500 late fee. Students who have not paid all tuition and fees for the full term may owe a balance to the College regardless of the date of the withdrawal during the term.

The forgiveness amount is based on the date the completed Withdrawal Form is duly received and executed by Enrollment Services, and it is calculated according to the following schedule:

If the Withdrawal is completed:
  • Prior to the start of Week 1: 100 percent tuition forgiveness 
  • Week 1: A $500 late fee charged to your account, but 100 percent of tuition and fee forgiveness 
  • Week 2: 80 percent tuition and fee forgiveness 
  • Week 3: 60 percent tuition and fee forgiveness 
  • Week 4: 40 percent tuition and fee forgiveness 
  • Week 5: 20 percent tuition and fee forgiveness 
  • Week 6 or Later: No tuition and fee forgiveness 
Fee Forgiveness

Course fees are forgiven per the same schedule as tuition forgiveness, except as otherwise noted above. Regardless of the date of the official withdrawal, finance charges are not forgiven.

Also, if the tuition is not paid in full by the date of the withdrawal, the student may have a balance due to ArtCenter.
