Financial Policy


Tuition agreement: 

I enclose $30 as a non-refundable application fee, with the understanding that it is not for less than one full academic year, for which the tuition is $13,350 (International Students: $17,000).
I understand that registration and tuition is for a specific curriculum and for a specific term (as indicated on this form) and that it is not refundable. 

I agree to pay this tuition (if I am accepted for enrollment and within ten days will declare my continued intention to study at SFD) by submitting a tuition payment in the amount of $1,335 (the equivalent of one course).

Monthly tuition payments of $1,335 each are due on the first of September, October, November, December, January, February, March, April, and May for the academic year.

Supplies and textbooks must be purchased before the start of classes in September and January. Class fees, books, kits, lab fees, fabrics and supplies vary according to the academic year and must be paid in full before September 1 (or January 1, or June 1 as applicable). 


International Students:

The full amount of tuition and fees for the academic year is due by September 1, January 1, or June 1 as applicable.

All tuition payments not received according to the above due dates are subject to a $25 late payment fee. In consideration of the acceptance of this application and enrollment conditions as described above I subscribe to all regulations, conditions and policies of the School of Fashion Design.

Part-Time/Continuing Education Students: Tuition is pro-rated at $1,335 per course and is due and payable in full by the semester of study (September 1st, January 1st, or June 1st).

Tuition refunds are governed by Massachusetts regulations. See our policy for deadlines and refund amounts.

All tuition prepaid is for a specific course(s) and for a specific term. Tuition cannot be credited toward other courses or other terms. Prior to the first day of classes, SFD reserves the right to cancel courses for which there are insufficient enrollments, or to reschedule courses because of time conflicts.
