Early Application Discount

If we receive all parts of your application by 15 March, we will discount your tuition by 5%. Remember that we must receive 1) your online application, 2) your creative work, 3) a letter of recommendation, and 4) your application fee by the due date in order to qualify for this discount.


Space in the program is determined on a first-come, first-served basis. Once accepted, a $200 non-refundable deposit is due by 15 May. After we have received your deposit, and you receive a confirmation email from us, your spot in the program is guaranteed until tuition is due. Your deposit will be subtracted from your tuition. 


Tuition for BLUR 2017 is $2,980.00.
