Financial Aid

Undergraduate Financial Aid

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 in this section.

Each year approximately 65 percent of our full-time students receive financial assistance from many different programs. The College administers more than $60 million annually in financial assistance to undergraduate students from all sources. The MICA-funded scholarships and grant programs alone provide more than $31 million.

To ensure that you're 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 finance 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.
