OIART is an investment that can start paying dividends after just 11 months.

The ROI is immediate and lasting. The tuition cost for attending OIART for the coming year is $32,450 and is fully tax deductible. Enroll and 11 months later you’re launching your career in the audio industry with arguably the most respected and recognized credentials you can get. You’ll have the skills, knowledge and applied experience that industry employers want right now, as well as the insight and versatility needed to adapt to changes in the industry as they happen.

The more you know, the better we sound.

We do one thing and we do it exceptionally well. There’s no other 1-year audio engineering program available – anywhere - that covers as much ground as OIART does in 11 months. In fact, other programs require 2, 3 or even 4 years of your time to equal the curriculum we’ve designed.

Everything we do focuses on getting you working as a highly qualified audio professional as soon as possible, so we’ve eliminated the filler, fluff and redundancies found in other programs. With an unprecedented 5:1 student/teacher ratio, the 11-month OIART experience is immersive and succinct, combining 650+ hours of lab time with 650+ hours of in-studio class time in eight real world, state-of-the-art studio environments. And we provide unrivalled career counseling and placement support to help you land that all-important first job.

So while you’re comparing tuition costs be sure to take into account the additional living expenses and income lost while remaining in school, when you could be working after just 11 months at OIART. Do the math, and you’ll realize that even just based on a typical 2-year program elsewhere, attending OIART might actually save you upwards of $15,000.

There are no extra fees, hidden costs or unexpected charges.

You pay $32,450 and that’s it. There are no extra costs for lab fees, textbooks, parking passes or student activity fees.
