  • 97% of MCAD students receive financial assistance

  • We award more than $9 million in aid every year

  • MCAD tuition is below the national average for art colleges


The idea of paying for college can sometimes seem overwhelming, but at MCAD the reality of it doesn't have to be. Students who are committed to studying art and design will find that we are just as committed to helping them afford an MCAD education.

We invite you to explore the various costs of attendance as well as the financial aid opportunities—including scholarships, grants, loans, and work-study—available to MCAD students. Should you have any questions, please contact

We look forward to helping you invest in your future!
