The school is very straight-forward, all of your tuition includes supplies for the classes. They also don't really skip out on the supplies (prisma-color pens for fashion sketching, etc.). However, to keep from hiking up tuition costs, they cut supplies fro some classes they don't believe needed them (like any colored pencils, paint or colored markers for some classes). So instead we had to by our own supplies. I'm also in the Fashion design program and you have to supply yourself with your own cloth and muslin. In some of the classes they will supply muslin but not for others (confusing and a bit frustrating). In all though they are really updated on your finances (everything they have you can also access online) and will lead you through the process of getting all of your loans and financial aid figured out.
