LACM’s Office of Student Financial Services is here to assist all incoming and current students with their billing, invoicing, and student employment needs. Student Financial Services regularly works with other departments across campus to guide students through the enrollment and matriculation process.

Tuition and Fees

For Diploma, Associate of Arts Degree, and Bachelor of Music Degree Students

LACM Student’s tuition for full-time students taking classes between 12-19 hours is $8,150.00. If a student elects to take below 12 credit hours (which is not considered full-time), the student will be billed $679.17 per credit hour taken. If a student elects to take more than 19 credit hours, the student will also be billed $679.17 credit hour above the 19 credit hours (this excludes elective classes). Tuition includes all required classes, LACM classroom books, and materials. Note that electives are subject to additional fees; any applicable fees will be listed on the Quarterly Registration Form for the quarter in which the elective is being offered.

**General Education course books are not included in the LACM’s tuition price; therefore the student is responsible for purchasing their text books (i.e. Amazon, Half Price Books, etc). For additional information on LACM Tuition & Fees and Cost of Attendance, see the LACM Policies section in our Catalog.
  • Total estimate of fees, curriculum and additional course materials will vary according to quarter and department. All materials may be purchased directly from the student store.
