Dear MCAD Students,
I hope this note finds you well. I am writing to let you know that there will be no change in tuition for the Fall 2021-Spring 2022 academic year and that raising scholarship funds continues to be a primary focus of our institutional advancement efforts.
Tuition for undergraduate and MFA students will remain at $41,344 for the 2021-22 academic year. (The average for undergraduate scholarships and grant awards is approximately $24,688, which includes Federal Pell Grant, Minnesota State Grant, and all MCAD merit and need-based scholarships.) Tuition for MA students will remain at $855 per credit. Student activity fees and technology fees will not increase.
There is more tuition information for Undergraduate Students, MFA Students, and MA Students on our website. Please reach out to the Financial Aid or Student Accounts Departments should you have any questions.
As we round out a year under the difficulty of this pandemic, I want to remind you that through the generosity of our donor community we continue to offer support through our Student Emergency Fund, which has disbursed approximately $180,000 since its inception almost one year ago. If you or a peer are in need of immediate financial assistance, please apply to this fund.
I look forward to continuing to support you as you pursue your creative aspirations now and in the future. Stay safe, warm, and well.
All my best,
