Step 1: Interview and Enrollment To reserve a place at the Creative Center, you must visit the campus. When you visit the campus: 1. You will have a one-time personal interview with an Admissions Coordinator to determine your eligibility for enrollment. 2. You will tour the campus. NOTE: All applicants under the age of 24 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for the interview and tour. 3. You must complete an enrollment agreement and application form, and provide a $200 enrollment fee and $100 application fee. (The full $300 is refunded if for any reason you are not accepted.) NOTE: If accepted, the Application Fee is non-refundable, and the $200 Enrollment Fee will be applied to your tuition. 4. You and your parent(s)/guardian will meet with a Financial Aid Officer to provide preliminary information regarding your eligibility for federal financial aid.
