Financial Aid

While participating in a semester or summer term at New York City Fashion, you have the benefit of paying Kent State University tuition rates, based on your in-state (Ohio resident),  out-of-state (all others), or international status. As a full-time student, you will also have the same financial aid and extensive scholarship opportunities offered to main campus students while enrolled here. 

If you are a guest student, you will need to secure financial aid and scholarships through your home institution, which you will then be able to apply to your New York City Fashion experience. Living costs can be high in New York City so we recommend that you take full advantage of any financial aid or scholarship opportunities that may be available to you.
