Otis College of Art and Design is pleased to offer the following discounts to Summer of Art students. Each discount is worth $100 and there is a two discount maximum.
- Early Enrollment (Must be received by Friday, April 26th, 2013)
- Otis Alumni (Includes graduates and current students of all Continuing Education and Pre-College Programs, BFA, and MFA programs, and extends to immediate family members only.)
- Ryman Arts (Extends to immediate family members only; must present confirmation from Ryman Arts.)

Students who send tuition deposits on or BEFORE April 26th will be billed for the balance. Balance must be paid in full by May 28th. AFTER May 28th, students must pay in full.
Payment may be made by check or credit card (Visa, or MasterCard only; Otis College of Art and Design does not accept American Express.) Make checks payable to Otis College of Art and Design. Be sure to write the registrant’s name and social security number on the check to ensure proper credit.
Insufficient Funds or Declined Credit Cards
Applicants whose checks are returned for insufficient funds will be charged a $50 penalty. The College cannot assume a student has withdrawn from the program because a check has not cleared or has been stopped; payment and penalty remain due. If sufficient payment is not made within 48 hours of notification, students whose checks have been returned may no longer attend classes. The same policy applies to students with declined credit cards.
If a student’s account accrues a balance due (payment due, returned check, and/or dishonored credit cards, etc.) that remains unpaid for more than fifteen (15) days, the account will be assigned to a collection agency. All such accounts will be charged collection costs, including but not limited to collection agency fees, legal fees, and court costs. This information will be disclosed to credit reporting organizations.
