Financial aid

Imagine what you could create with a focused education. But first, you need to think about financial aid. Begin here.

Financial aid options

At The Art Institutes we don’t want a lack of funding to stop you from professional growth. We want you to succeed, so we offer a number of financial aid options to meet your financial needs.

To those who qualify, here are the types of U.S. federal financial aid that may be available:

  • Federal Grant Programs
  • Federal Loan Programs
  • Federal Work-Study

In addition to the options above some Art Institutes locations offer institutional aid or operate in states where you may apply for state grants. Please select the location you are interested in from the dropdown below to download a Financial Aid Guide for specific information on possible awards, requirements and application processes.

It is important to note that Canadian residents attending The Art Institute of Vancouver have financial aid options that differ from U.S. financial aid options. To view those options please select The Art Institute of Vancouver/Canadian residents from the dropdown below and note that the Financial aid process and free application for federal student aid (FAFSA) sections do not apply to you.

Financial aid process
