Columbia MFA Visual Arts students demand tuition refund

51 of the 54 students in Columbia University’s Masters of Fine Arts Visual Arts Program have demanded a full tuition refund for the 2017-18 academic year, stating that they have not received the education that they were promised.

According to Columbia University’s Spectator,

Tuition for the 2017-18 academic year at Columbia was $63,961, compared to $36,359 for the Visual Arts programs at Yale. Columbia provides a limited amount of financial aid for students in the visual arts program, meaning that some students are more than $100,000 in debt by the end of the two-year program.
