Forms may be submitted via e-mail, fax or mail. Please note, a 2.55 percent processing fee will apply for credit/debit card payments; there is no fee for e-check payments. You may also mail a check or money order directly to the Residence Life Office

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. Payments must be received by the application deadline to be considered on-time. Please use the following information:
