Reduced Term Course Packages (RTCP)

Update, June 2021:

At this time, we are unable to offer Reduced Term Course Packages (RTCP).



Going away for a few weeks? Can’t commit to a full term course? TSA offers reduced term course packages to meet your needs. This is a special service we offer for selected courses. *Please note: Not all courses are eligible.

To inquire or register for a Reduced Term Course Package, please contact the office.


8-week courses can be reduced to 6 CLASSES: $305 (Summer term only)

10-week courses can be reduced to 7 CLASSES: $349

12-week courses can be reduced to 7 ($349) or 9 CLASSES: $422                                                          


Base tuition per above, plus a pro-rated model fee (in some cases) and a $20 non-refundable registration fee.

To register, call or drop by the office to learn if this service is a good fit for you.


A RTCP must be arranged before the start of the first class and is only available by contacting the office.

Reduced Term Course Packages (RTCP) reflect one course registration each, and exclude 6-week courses, 3-day workshops, and 1-week intensives.

Not all courses are eligible.  Please note that it is not the teacher's responsibility to catch you up on material missed.

A RTCP does not provide a comprehensive learning experience; beginner level/new students are strongly encouraged to register for the full duration of a course.

TSA reserves the right to limit the number of RTCPs allotted for specific courses. Please inquire early as some spaces fill up quickly.

Promotional discounts and programs are not valid with this service.

A course switch must be requested before the second class within the same term and may be subject to an administration fee.

RTCP registration is based on availability and subject to minimum enrollment to run as scheduled. In the case a course is cancelled due to low enrollment, students may switch into another course within the same term or receive a full refund. RTCPs are non-transferable to future terms. 

RTCP tuition costs are subject to change with changes in tuition and program. 

*Courses relying on sequential knowledge, i.e. Digital Sculpting with ZBrush, Photoshop Illustrator, Introduction to Drawing, are not suited for RTCP.  Please inquire at the office for those courses that are not eligible.

Withdrawal and Refund Policy:

All withdrawal requests must be submitted to the office in writing.

  • A full refund of tuition and other fees (minus the non-refundable $25 admin and a $40 withdrawal fee) with a minimum of 5 business days written notice prior to the start of the course.
  • From 4 business days up until after the first class, a 75% refund of tuition and other fees (minus the non-refundable $25 admin and a $40 cancellation fee).
  • After the second class, a 50% refund of tuition and other fees (minus the non-refundable $25 admin and a $40 cancellation fee).

No refunds will be issued after the third week of the course.
