Program Costs & Refunds

Tuition is $7,000 for the 2024-2025 program year. Textbooks and other supplies required are specific to each course and may cost up to $500.  


Tuition must be paid in full by the designated date which is prior to the program start date.
When an applicant is accepted a non-refundable deposit and letter of intent to enroll is due in order to hold the applicant's place in the program. The balance of the tuition must be paid by the defined due date as outlined in the acceptance documents as well as the 2024-2025 Program Admission Dates and Costs. Payments are accepted via credit card or via check or money order. ARC candidates are not eligible for Free Application for Federal candidate Aid (FAFSA) related financial assistance or federal Stafford Loans.
