The FCAA is committed to a policy of non-discrimination in its admissions. The FCAA reviews and processes applications from prospective students of all ages, nationalities, races, sexual orientations and religious denominations. However, the Academy reserves the right to not accept applications which in the absolute judgement of its management are exceeding the appropriate number of attendees to the course. The FCAA reserves the right to make changes in faculty staff when necessary, modify the current hourly structure or schedule of class when necessary.
The tuition fees for long-term programs must be paid entirely according to the official deadlines (early or standard) published every year on the official website of the FCAA: https://www.artac.org.
The student is required to pay a registration fee of 150 euro to secure their place in the course. This must be done within 15 days from the day of the official email confirming one’s acceptance to the program. Registration fee is not a separate cost but it is included in the full tuition amount.
The tuition fees are non-refundable. Personal situations, health issues or change of plans cannot be the valid reason for the refund request according to the policy. For students who are unable to start their studies for any reason, a two-year voucher will be opened for the same amount paid and valid for any course.
Discounts and aid
The FCAA reserves the right to provide merit-based tuition discounts or grants to a limited number of students per year according to the results of occasional portfolio competitions held by the Academy or external sponsorship associations.
Policies and conduct
The student joining the programs of the FCAA agrees to abide by the rules and policies that are established by the administration in regard to general conduct and behavior in class and outside of class while at the facility of the Academy. The student is obligated to refund the FCAA for any damage, which is caused to its premises, goods or material.
The student, by accepting these terms and conditions, declares to exempt the FCAA and its personnel from any responsibility pertaining to his/her safety, within the activity of courses and outside of class hours while at the facilities of the Academy. The student declares to exempt the FCAA and its personnel from any responsibility of the loss or damage of any personal belongings or artworks.
The Academy reserves the right to terminate (by expression of Law) the present contract, in order to protect its own good name and honor, safety and/or best interest of the students in particular of the following circumstances:
⮚ In case if the student, by his or her behavior, jeopardizes the normal activity of class or acts in such a manner that is harmful, offensive or disruptive to the Academy, its personnel and/or to other students;
⮚ In case if the student does not meet the obligations regarding tuition payments.
The termination of the contract in the circumstances above mentioned, brings no right for a refund to the expelled student.
The Academy has the right, after two official written communications of expulsion warning, to terminate the contract upon its non-debatable decision.
Contract’s nature and continuity
This contract is non-transferable. No student is permitted to transfer his or her contract to a third party, either for free or for a payment. This contract is only valid for the academic period determined by the contract itself and cannot be transferred or postponed to a later validity phase. This agreement implies yearly tuition payment according to the official deadlines.
This agreement is signed in the first year of the Three-Year program and is tacitly renewed for the next academic year, unless interrupted by an official written notice from a student to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 90 days prior to the beginning of the following academic year.
