Undergraduate Study
Abroad Program


For undergraduate students to apply for either the Fall or the Spring semester you must be in good academic standing (no less than 2.5 GPA or equivalent). Admission to our program is based on a holistic appraisal of your entire application packet. (See below for details on the application materials.) 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. (Please note: although it is best to apply early, it may be possible to apply after these deadlines. Please CONTACT US for more information if you are interested to apply with a late application.)
