California College of the Arts (CCA) is one of the top art and design colleges in the nation. Studying at CCA prepares you to succeed in today’s complex world -- to work collaboratively, think critically, and creatively address the challenges of today and tomorrow.
Investing in a CCA Education
We understand attending CCA requires a significant investment, which is why the college is committed to assisting students in meeting their educational goals.
Fostering A Diverse Student Body
We believe enrolling a culturally, economically, and artistically diverse student body is integral to academic excellence. Our financial aid program is designed to help make CCA affordable so all students reach their creative potential.
Scholarship & Financial Aid Opportunities
CCA awards more than $19 million in college-funded scholarships and over $34 million in combined scholarships, grants, loans, and employment to students. Over 85 percent of our students receive some form of scholarships or other type of financial aid.
Prospective students can receive an estimate of their scholarship and financial aid eligibility by using CCA's Net-Price Calculators.
