How do I submit my housing deposit payment?

  1. Electronic Check from your checking or savings account (no processing fee), or credit card (Mastercard, VISA or Discover, with a 2.55% processing fee) at: calarts.edu/housing-deposit
  2. Check/Money Order: mailed to: CalArts Residence Life and made payable to California Institute of the Arts. Do NOT send cash.
  3. Bank Wire: Wire transfer instructions can be found at: calarts.edu/tuition-and-financial-aid/payment-and-student- accounts/payment-options. If paying by wire transfer, please be sure to check with your bank for the cost of the wire. The bank usually deducts the cost of the wire from the amount of money that you send, which in some instances may cause your payment to be short. Wire transfers may take up to 10 business days to arrive in the CalArts account. Please reference the student name and I.D. number in the wire. 

 The $350 housing deposit payment must be received to the Institute by the May 3, 2019, at 4 pm PST as the Accounting office closes at 4 pm.
