PERSONAL CHECKS are NOT accepted for tuition payment (as of September 1, 2015). 

    1) Pay in full 10 days before start date of class and receive 10% off of one class.

    2) Pay at least a $50.00 deposit, and the balance is due at your first class. These are the only options open to new students other than work- study, mentioned later. 


    3) Elect a payment schedule WHICH MUST BE APPROVED IN ADVANCE, and which may require you to sign an agreement stating the specific terms. Should student drop class after the second class, payment in full is due immediately.

If you are seriously money-impaired, ATC has a work-study program which can help you to offset part of your tuition. Talk to one of the directors for details.

20% Off Classes!


You can get 20% off a class when you take another class (or two) of equal or greater value in the same semester! For instance, register for Scene Study ($300.00) and take Intro to TV/Film for only $180!

Remember, this offer is only good on classes you take concurrently, so don’t wait to take advantage of this terrific deal! To make it even easier, you can still take advantage of the deferred payment plan on one or both of the classes (see “Payment Policy” above).

This discount is not available to work-study students.

Please Note: Summer workshops/NYC Showcase programs feature their own specials and built in discounts: the 20% discount does NOT apply.

Refund Policy

If you cancel at least 7 days before the start of your class, you will be given a complete refund.

If you cancel less than a week before the beginning of the class, you will be subject to a refund less a $50.00 administration fee. 

If you drop the class after the first session meets, we will refund you the balance of your payment less the $50.00 administration fee and the cost of the first class.


In extraordinary circumstances, credit may be arranged towards another class during the same academic year. If a student has arranged a payment plan and drops class after the second class meets, payment in full is due immediately. 

PLEASE NOTE: In rare circumstances, it may be necessary to release a student for disciplinary reasons. In such a case, the student is not entitled to ANY refund or credit.
