TEACHER TUITION WAIVER POLICY


Otis College of Art and Design is committed to supporting the continuing education needs of our teachers. Full-time K-12 teachers from Culver City Unified School District, Los Angeles Unified School District and other LA County districts and schools, as well as Career Technical Education (CTE) Arts, Media, and Entertainment (AME) teachers throughout California are eligible to waive tuition on most Extension courses that meet for at least 30 contact hours. 

Acceptance is subject to approval and is contingent upon available space on a first come first served basis. Priority enrollment goes to full paying students before students applying for a tuition waiver can be considered. Alternatively, qualified students may elect to enroll in a course for a reduced tuition (approximately equal to 50% discount) to be guaranteed a space in the class.


Please note that teachers are responsible for a $30 fee that covers registration and student accident insurance, as well as lab fees (as applicable) as well as their materials/supplies.
