  • Alex Israel

    Feb 10| Lectures
    More
    The work of Alex Israel is deeply entwined with his hometown of Los Angeles. The artist creates art that riffs on Hollywood culture and the cult of celebrity. His first major body of work consisted of rented studio props, transformed into readymades by their placement in the gallery—some blatantly obvious in their artificiality. He gave celebrities the same treatment in the video series “As It Lays”, video portraits based on campy TV talk shows.

Types of Aid

Before accepting your aid award offer, you should consider the various types of aid that are available to you, and what this can mean for you and your family.

Scholarships & Grants

Scholarships and Grants are aid that do not need to be repaid. This is the best type of aid to receive, and it’s often referred to as “free money.” You’ll definitely want to accept any scholarships and grants that are offered.  Sources of scholarships and grants are the federal government, state government, Otis College of Art and Design and Private Origanizations.

Subsidized & Unsubsidized Loans

Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized loans do need to be repaid and have different terms depending on the loan. For example, most subsidized loans do not accrue interest while you’re in school but unsubsidized loans do. For unsubsidized loans, the principal that you borrowed will increase over time as the interest accrues. This means you’ll owe more than you borrowed once you begin to repay.

PLUS Loans

Federal PLUS loan is available to parents of undergraduate students and to students enrolling in a graduate degree program.  The applicant cannot have adverse credit.  PLUS loans have a higher interest rate than subsidized and unsubsidized loans, and you must request a deferment if you’d like to begin repayment after graduation. Please note that interest will keep accruing on a PLUS loan while you’re not making payments, and the interest begins as soon as the funds are disbursed to the College. Applicants can borrow up to cost of attendance minus other aid.

Private Educational
Loans

Private educational loans are also available but are not listed on your award offer. These loans are based on credit. If your credit is not good enough, you'll need a co-signer. Various banks offer private educational loans, and their terms vary. You can set up a private loan to pay for your tuition balance and receive additional funds for other education-related expenses such as housing, books & supplies, etc.

Work-Study

If you are offered Federal work-study, understand that these funds will not lower your tuition cost. You earn these funds as you work, and receive payment when you submit your hours like in any other job. Work-study jobs are not guaranteed. They are first-come, first-served.
