Post-Baccalaureate Program

PB Application

Admission to our post-baccalaureate program is based on a holistic appraisal of your entire application packet (see below for application packet requirements.)  Since post-baccalaureate students are at different points in their professional and artistic development, the various application components will be considered in total.  The most important elements of your application are your portfolio and your artist’s statement, since these give us the best understanding of your artistic practice, so please take the time to thoughtfully assemble these materials. 

All application materials must be received within the deadline stated for each program: 
Deadlines are May 15 for the Fall 2021 semester and Nov 1 for the Spring 2022 semester.
