Tuition Breakdown

The College derives the majority of its revenue from tuition and departmental fees. Tuition dollars are spent on running the institution as a whole and on those operating expenses that pertain to all students. Each fee dollar generated by an academic/studio department is earmarked and spent by that same department for its own specific program needs. This past year, just over half of each fee dollar was spent on program-specific technology, and the remainder was spent on program-related instructional expenses.
