    + Assumes completion in 15 terms. Maximum cost of program is $28,525 (records fees of $200 for each additional term up to 4 years from date of matriculation).

    * The residential fee does not include housing, meals or transportation; costs vary depending on the originating location of the student and the chosen accommodations. Anaheim University endeavors to find housing at a reasonable cost for students. For MFA students attending the residential, it is the students’ responsibility to ensure that they have taken care of proper visa procedures, if required.

    **The thesis course requires an additional one-time payment of $450. A thesis student will pay the $200 records fee for each term s/he is working on the thesis until it is submitted for examination (the above table includes the average thesis completion time of two terms).

    NOTE: The list of program fees does not include textbook fees. Textbooks average approximately $100 - $200 per course. Some courses require the submission of an original film project; production expenses are the responsibility of the student and are not included in the MFA program fees.

    Note: Anaheim University makes certain provisions in order to provide access to library resources and library services for all students enrolled directly through Anaheim University. However, students enrolled in Anaheim University’s online graduate degree programs are required to have an additional reserve fund to be used for the purchase of journals and research - materials that will aid them in their studies by providing information specific to their unique areas of interest and research - and to provide access to software and other resources that may help them in the completion of their studies. The research reserve fund is $1,500 for masters students to be used over the duration of their program. Students are not required to spend the entire research fund - only that amount necessary in order to carry out their research.

    The above itemizes all of the fees and charges for which the student is responsible. Our refund policy can be found in the Policies and Procedures section.

    Tuition may be paid on a course-by-course basis. Students who pay all program fees at one time are eligible for a 10% discount on tuition. Students may make payment by check, credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover), money order or bank transfer (the student is responsible for any transactions fees imposed by the institution). Payment is to be made in US dollars. To maintain active status, the records fee must be paid even if skipping a term.

    An extension may be granted by the Dean to students requiring more time to complete the program. Students will be required to pay the records fee for each term enrolled.

    Diplomatic and Military Service Discount: From January 1, 2006, those who have served their government through either diplomatic or military service may be eligible for a 10% discount.

    US Military:  Anaheim University's programs are approved for VA benefits.
