Becoming a Subscriber: Independent Art Schools
Classification & Fees
There are five levels of classification for independent art colleges and universities: Very Large, Large, Medium, Small, and Very Small. The classifications are based on full-time student enrollment (FTE).
|Full–Time Enrollment||ARTstor Classification|
|2000 and above||Very Large|
In cases where a school's FTE falls between classes we may use the library's materials budget and number of active serials to determine a more specific ARTstor class.
