In addition to tuition, estimated costs for the students who complete the entire Multimedia Arts degree average $3,250 per term. Costs include photographic supplies, portable storage drives, books, printing, presentation supplies, sketchbooks, and digital media. Class, universal, and differential fees for the Multimedia Arts degree total $19,500 for required courses. All Visual Communications students are required to purchase their own personal computer and software. This includes owning a Mac or Windows computer that is capable of running the Adobe Creative Cloud software taught in the program (Photoshop, InDesign, Premier Pro, and others). You will qualify for a discounted student subscription to Adobe Creative Cloud. It is OK to wait to purchase this equipment until after classes begin in September, as your instructors may have additional advice and requirements to share with you. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 503.399.5018 to find out if you qualify for help with these costs.
You may earn an associate of applied science degree by maintaining a grade point average of 2.00 and successfully completing the required 96 credits.
