Fees & Deposits

A non-refundable $55 application fee and a $300 per workshop tuition deposit are required at the time of registration.  If you are requesting Workshops housing an additional $100 deposit is required. For those choosing one of our destination workshops, the tuition deposit is $600 per workshop. Summer residencies require a $1500 deposit.  Deposits can be made via check, approved company purchase order, Discover, MasterCard, or Visa.  If your selected workshop begins less than 30 days from application date, full payment should be made at time of registration.

 Your formal acceptance is contingent on receiving your resume or portfolio (if required), even if you have been here before.

Withdrawal and Refund Policy
Enrollment is limited in our workshops, so once you have been accepted your participation is important to us - we are counting on you to attend. If you must withdraw from a course, we provide the following refund policy:

* Withdraw more than 45 days before the start of class (60 days for workshops held outside of Rockport) and we will refund all monies paid, less the $55 application fee.

  • * Withdraw 45 days or less before the start of class and we will refund all monies paid, less the application fee and the $300 deposit ($600 deposit for workshops held outside of Rockport).
  • * Housing on campus is at a premium here in the summer months. Thus, we may charge a $100 cancellation fee for lodging cancellations made less than ten days before the start of a class.

No cancellation fee will be charged for a change in class dates to occur within 12 months from the date of cancellation (mod 4/23/13).
