Financial Aid will mostly be given by the government. It's based on your FAFSA efc. The lower your efc is, the more money you receive. In terms of Ringling scholarships, I believe it's based on merit. The better your portfolio is, the more money you receive. The highest I've seen without being a presidential award was $5000 a year.
As for math classes, I know that the CA dept. totally got rid of the requirement. Don't know about the other majors. It's not your typical math class either. I doubt you'll have to learn any kind of higher level maths like Calculus or Linear Algebra. I think it's more art based, along with every other liberal arts course here.
