Tuition, Fees, & Financial Aid


The Department of Film & Media Arts uses general University of Utah undergraduate and graduate tuition rates


In order to improve the student experience and allow for better student financial planning, the Department of Film & Media Arts has eliminated course fees and implemented a $200/per semester program fee beginning in the 21-22 academic year. This fee is assessed each semester to undergraduate and graduate students and provides equipment checkout and facilities services as well as instructional enhancement and support. Historically, the Department of Film & Media Arts charged course fees to cover expenses in support of instruction. Course fees ranged from $90 to $250 for film and media production courses, and $40 to $75 for film and media history and studies courses. Students could pay as little as $120 or as much as $1000, each semester, depending on which courses they were enrolled in. The Department has determined that a program fee is a more equitable and transparent fee structure.

Financial Aid

The Department of Film & Media Arts solicits applications for departmental scholarships each February for the following academic year through the Academic Works website. Students may also find and apply for a variety of other scholarships through the Academic Works portal.
