Scholarships & Financial Aid

Since 1826, MICA has offered an outstanding private education in the visual arts, earning its reputation and ranking as one of the top ten visual art colleges in the nation. MICA has a commitment to make our programs available to talented students regardless of their economic backgrounds.

We believe that an education at MICA is an investment that yields a lifetime of personal, intellectual, and professional growth and accomplishment. We realize that the cost of this investment will require careful financial planning. We are committed to helping you find ways to make this education affordable throughout your program of study. Each year approximately 65 percent of our full-time students receive financial assistance from many different programs. The College awards more than $32 million annually in financial assistance to undergraduate students from all sources. The MICA-funded scholarships and grant programs alone provide more than $14.5 million.

Our financial aid staff counsels families about financial planning and assistance, makes available applications for many aid sources, and administers a variety of aid programs described below. For those students who wish to work while attending MICA, the staff of the Joseph Meyerhoff Center for Career Development provides assistance in finding appropriate part-time jobs. Financial aid programs are available to students from all income levels—from Federal Pell Grants, reserved for the neediest of families, to low-interest nonneed- based student loans for students from higher-income families. To ensure that you are aware of all the resources available to your family, we encourage all students to complete the financial aid application process and to consider the full range of options to financing your education.

Note : You must be accepted to the College in the BFA program and file the required financial aid forms to be considered for need-based financial aid, grants, or scholarships.
