Art Materials, Books, and Other Supplies
Students purchase the supplies needed for class work. This expense, while highly variable depending on personal preference, is estimated per student as:

Books(first-year students): $300

Art Kit (first-year students): $675

3-D supplies per semester: $140


Foundations year: Students purchase the preassembled DCAD Art Kit which will supply students with most of their needs. Based on students’ personal use, some items may need to be replenished and can be found at the DCAD Bookstore.

Second year: Each major has unique art material requirements and/or laptop recommendations for each specific course. Instructors make these needs known the first day of their classes.
