Students who have enrolled but not paid tuition could lose their spot in a class. Once the payment deadline has passed, all students who are unpaid in a course will be moved to waitlist status. Remaining space in the class is based on a first come, first served basis after the deadline, and those students who pay their tuition will get priority and confirm their seat.
Tuition is $425 per credit hour. Students registering for studio courses are required to pay studio fees of $34 per credit hour as well as any additional materials fee for their specific studio. Students who wish to audit a class must register through the Continuing and Professional Studies office and pay tuition of $500 plus any materials fees. Tuition and fees for summer intersession classes are due in full in the business office by Friday, May 10, for the June session and Friday, June 21 for the July session. Your enrollment will be cancelled the day after this payment deadline if payment has not been received.
Students seeking financial aid for a summer session/study-abroad trip must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form at www.fafsa.gov and the KCAI Summer Financial Assistance Data Application form. Students are encouraged to look for outside scholarships, as only loans are available through financial aid.
Computer access will be provided in the Jannes Library computer lab during summer intersession. Check the door for posted hours, or view library hours.
Course refunds are calculated based on the date a student officially withdraws in the registrar's office. Refunds requested by mail will be calculated based on the postmark date. Students withdrawing from courses will be charged a $35 administrative fee per course. The last day to withdraw from a course without grade penalty is Wednesday, June 12, for Session I and Wednesday, July 17, for Session II.
