Tuition + Fees

    • PIE 010

Tuition in the Professional Institute for Educators at the University of the Arts is listed next to each course on this website. Specialized intensive courses, partnership courses and those with fewer credits are at customized rates per course. Courses in the PIE program are offered for credit only; non-credit options are not available.


Course fees vary by class and are applied to specific operational costs incurred in certain classes, studios or labs. Payment of fees mentioned in course descriptions is required at the time of registration and is nonrefundable. Students are responsible for their course materials and supplies.

Refund Policy

All refunds are less nonrefundable deposits and fees, and are calculated as follows:

  • 100% refund less the $50 nonrefundable application fee for withdrawal five business days prior to the first class
  • 0% refund for withdrawal within fewer than five business days

Course fees are also nonrefundable. All withdrawals must be submitted in writing sent via email to . The date the request is received in writing is the date used to calculate the refund amount. Please allow up to 10 business days for review.

Note: It is not our policy to transfer registration from one course to another. Requests of this nature will be processed as a withdrawal, subject to the refund policy above. 

Note: The Professional Institute for Educators strongly encourages students to seek pre-approval from their school district before registering for courses. Refunds will not be granted to students who request withdrawal because their school district denies approval for tuition reimbursement.


Supplies are the responsibility of the student. Supply lists will be available online one week prior to the start of classes and can be accessed by selecting the Syllabus link on the individual course page.
