Financing Your Education at MUD

Students enrolling at MUD are responsible for meeting the financial commitments required in order to attend school. At MUD, the enrollment process is not complete until a student can confirm that he or she is financially capable of covering the costs of school registration, tuition, lab fees, and supplies. Payment for any course is due in full no later than the first day of class. Payment for the Fashion, Film & Television, Multimedia, or Master Program can be made in one or two payments: the first payment is due in full no later than the first day of class; the second payment is due at the midpoint of the program. Although the first payment is not due until the first day of class for all courses and programs, MUD asks that payment be made two weeks prior to the first day of class to ease the transition into school. Students who require financial assistance are encouraged to contact their bank or credit union for a personal loan before looking into a private loan or school loan as they may be able to secure a better interest rate.

I did a lot of research looking for the right makeup school for me and my interests. MUD was the best place for me. Teachers go above and beyond for their students and they have a great career placement program.

I took their master course and I don't regret taking it! This school really breaks that glass ceiling and gives you opportunities to meet and be around professionals in the industry. I graduated a little over a year ago, and I already have my dream job. Working for a recognized professional artist making feature films!
