Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Tuition
In-State Tuition In-state tuition is the tuition charged by institutions to those students who meet the state's or institution's residency requirements. In-district tuition is the tuition charged by the institution to those students residing in the locality in which they attend school and may be a lower rate than in-state tuition if offered by the institution.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.12 Average Rating
The school is a bit pricey, at times you may find yourself wondering why you're paying that much. I look back on my personal growth over my past three semesters and I know I am certainly getting my money's worth.
Robyn from Yuma, AZ
The dorms in NY are not the best I will say that, but again you are studying in NYC.
Amanda from Bennington, VT
At times I feel that this school is a lot of money but for only being in my first semester, I have learned so much about what it takes but also about myself. The knowledge of these teachers is phenomenal so soak as much as possible.
Richard from Everett, WA
As a student if you put your best foot forward in this program your money will be worth all of that and more. As a student at AMDA you have to make up in your mind to how serious you are about this art, in order to receive all that you need to gain at this institution. The instructors will only push you so much, it's up to you to take the torch and run with it. One thing that we were always asked was Is this craft your hobby, or your career?. When you think of that question and exactly what it means this will drive you insane to put your best foot forward for your money.
Simeon from Rock Hill, SC
College is a serious investment regardless of where you're studying, and even though AMDA is private, and the price is up there a bit, I believe it is completely worth it. With the faculty they hire, the connections you can make and the resources they offer The price is justified.
