ArtCenter College of Design has created an Economic Response Team (ERT)  designed to assist students who are experiencing severe economic hardship, on a case-by-case basis.


The Economic Response Team includes leadership from Financial Aid; the Center for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion; and the Center for the Student Experience (CSE). As part of the ERT process, the Financial Aid Office will review the situation and reach out for additional information in order to help explore all opportunities available to students in need.


Any ArtCenter student experiencing severe economic hardship should confidentially contact the Economic Response Team at
