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.

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

3.62 Average Rating
The quality of everything here is insane for the price. The faculty here are experienced artists, writers, scientists, and historians that have had a lot of good things to pull from their personal careers outside of MIAD.
Rebeckah from Wauwatosa, WI
Even though this is a $32,000 school without room and board, most of MIAD's facilities are top notch. They are well maintained and abundant. MIAD allows you to use it's facilites almost all hours of the day. The computer labs are open until 11, the 3D lab is open until 11, and the scultpure lab is open until 9. The school itself stays open until midnight, and during finals it's open until 2. For the availability and use of all the facilities, if you use your time wisely, and apply yourself, then this school is well worth the money.

The vicinity is amazing! The amount of studio space given to each student is worth it!
And of course, the high quality of education you're receiving is well worth it!

Over all, if you're looking for an Art school that is well rounded, offers many option within art, and is under $30,000, MIAD is PERFECT!

It is quite pricey, but you can get one on one with your teachers instead of sitting in a huge lecture hall at public colleges. Also MIAD has quite a great facility so you definitely get your moneys worth.
