Tuition + Fees + Housing Costs
The following is the direct cost of education for one academic year (two semesters). Each year's price depends on the semester in which the student begins taking courses. Housing costs are subject to change each year. These housing costs are for students living in AMDA's Student Housing.

An additional Student Tuition Recovery Fund fee is required for students attending the Los Angeles campus.

STRF fees are $0.50 per $1,000 of tuition.

Please remember that this is an estimated average cost, and individual student expenses may be more or less than this amount depending on personal needs and living habits. Students are encouraged to make a budget for their living expenses. Students who would like additional assistance and budgeting resource materials may contact the Financial Aid Office.
