Payment

Applicants may either pay in full at the time of registration or submit an initial payment ($500) with their application and the balance on or before Monday, May 12, 2014, or one week after your enrollment notification, whichever is later. Payment may be made by check, payable to California College of the Arts, or by MasterCard, Visa, Discover, or American Express.

Late Fee

Failure to pay your tuition in full by the deadline could lead to forfeiture of your place in the program. A late fee of $100 will be charged if the balance is not received by May 12, 2014.

Returned Check Fee

If for any reason a check does not clear for payment, a $25 processing fee will be charged to the student's account.

Scholarships

Scholarships are available in a limited number for applicants who have significant financial need.

Because we anticipate that the Summer Atelier will fill and only limited scholarship money is available, we strongly recommend that only applicants from families who could not otherwise afford to attend the program apply for a scholarship. Spaces are reserved in the program for scholarship recipients.

Applicants should check the appropriate box on the registration form that indicates a desire for scholarship consideration. Be sure to send the following materials with the application form and high school transcript:

  • a copy of the household's 2013 federal income tax return filed by a parent(s) or guardian(s)
  • a statement by the parent(s) or guardian(s) that describes the family's financial need for the scholarship, including the applicant's interest in the program
  • name and phone number of a current teacher or counselor

Scholarship Deadline

All of the above must be received by Monday, April 7. Scholarship applicants will be notified by April 14.

Attendance Policy

Summer Atelier participants are expected to be present for the entire program, barring illness. This means that participants will be in class for the full duration of the program. If another activity (e.g., soccer practice) or planned family vacation conflicts with a full-time commitment, please do not register for the program.

The Summer Atelier is an intensive immersion in art, with daily six-hour instruction. Students are expected to arrive to all classes on time. Late arrivals and early departures are disruptive to the program and are not acceptable.

Conduct Policy

California College of the Arts is committed to offering a high-quality Summer Atelier. In the event that a participant's behavior is deemed disruptive to the experience of other participants, by either one or more of the participant's instructors or by the Dean of Special Programs, the college reserves the right to withdraw the participant from the program. No refund will be issued.

Refund Policy

Withdrawal/refund requests must be made in writing and delivered either by email, postal mail or faxed to the Office of Special Programs. The timestamp or postmark on the request will be honored as the withdrawal date.
