    Tuition costs vs. quality

    Ok, narrowed down my search to the top five following:

    Academy of Arts, San Francisco
    Art Center
    Gnomon
    Savannah College of Art and Design
    Ringling

    I dont remember the tuiton costs for each of them, but I remember the Maya Fast-Track costs $9.000, and the full certificate program is $36.500 (each subject like Introduction to Maya is about $1620 or something like that) (All of this in Gnomon)
    Academy of Arts is also expensive if I remember correctly.

    Can anyone please post the tuitions fee for the other schools? And please compare with overall quality.

    From what I heard these are the top of the crop, especially Gnomon when it comes to 3d. I wish to become part of the gaming/film industry as a concept artist/ilustrator, but I also want to learn how to work in the 3d world, with tools like Maya and 3D Studio Max.

    I dont think I will be able to go to any of these colleges, though, for economical reasons. Could you please recomend more economic schools but that also give a good education/formation?
    Any feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
    BTW I'm from Argentina.

    Ringling is almost $20,000 a year for tuition (not including books, materials, fees or room & board).

    I'm sorry, but I don't know how exactly it compares to those other schools or what cheaper options there could be. Why don't you go to the website of each school and look around, see what their curriculum is like, check out the cost, and look at the galleries? You can get a good idea which school would suit you best that way. Then go visit other schools that are cheaper and close to where you live (Like state/community colleges, or art insts.)

    Hey thanks, yeah I went to their sites but I couldn't find the tuition costs (only one I found was Gnomon). I think I should be doing more searches. Thanks for the feedback!

    artcenter is 11k per term, with tuition going up about 500 bux per term.

    so about 22ish per term if you do 2 terms,

    33ish if you work year round.

    afaik most of the traditional private art schools (risd, calarts, artcenter, etc) are priced the same or about the same.

    quality of instruction should be your #1 concern as long as you can afford it (your own $, loans, scholarships)
