Understanding College Costs and Budgeting

We understand that college costs are always an important consideration for students and their families and we’re committed to assisting you with information and resources to help you make an informed decision. We encourage you to contact our office to speak with a Financial Aid Counselor one on one to discuss your plans for funding your education at CalArts.
