Admissions Process

Application

Step 1:

  • Choose which type of learner you wish to be: 
    1. Regular Student I am interested in pursuing a degree or graduate certificate, and therefore I am interested in taking courses for credit. A regular student must have a BA or expect to receive a BA in the immediate future. 
    2. Auditor: I am interested in registering for classes but I am not pursuing a degree or certificate, and therefore I am not interested in receiving credit or a grade for any course. I do however wish to participate, be counted as a student on the roster and receive a certificate of attendance

    3. Digital Observer: I am only interested in listening in on an ongoing live class. I do not want credit. I will not participate in the course, and will not be referred to as a student on the roster.

Rolling admissions: completed applications are processed as we receive them. Applicants are encouraged to apply early. (Expect about 3-4 weeks to hear back). After the first form of the application is complete, you should receive an email confirming your submission and allowing you to continue your application.

Tuition

Step 2:

  • Regular Student: $1,500 for a 3-hour course ($500 a credit hour)
  • Auditor: $350 per course
  • Digital Observer: $150 per course

Tuition is due before classes begin unless an installment plan is agreed upon.

Financial Aid

Step 3:

  • TISA has a policy to never turn down a regular student for financial reasons. If you feel you need financial aid, please answer the question at the end of the application indicating that you desire financial aid.
  • A separate financial aid application will be sent to you. Expect a response to a completed financial aid application within 3 weeks. 

 

  • Digital observers are not eligible for financial aid
Course Registration

Step 4:

  • After receiving an acceptance letter, learners register for classes.
  • The Fall 2020 course schedule is available on our website.
