Schedule an Admissions Appointment

ArtCenter’s Admissions Department is excited to talk to you about your creative future and we strongly encourage prospective students to schedule an appointment to meet with one of our admissions counselors. These appointments are great opportunities to learn more about ArtCenter, get feedback on your admissions portfolio, or receive guidance throughout your application process. Appointments are also available for students who have received an admissions decision. We love connecting with aspiring artists and designers and look forward to answering your questions.

Virtual and On Campus Appointment Scheduling

Virtual appointments are held on Zoom or over the phone. On campus appointments are held at the Hillside Campus and require COVID-19 vaccination with advanced registration.

Schedule an appointment for Undergraduate (BFA, BS programs) programs here. Schedule an appointment for Graduate (MFA, MS, MDes programs) programs here.

These are not formal admissions interviews, but instead are supportive advisory sessions.

COVID-19 Policies for On Campus Appointments:

Please note that our campus tours require that all guests have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and boosted when eligible. Starting June 8th, all guests will be required to wear a medical grade mask on campus regardless of your vaccination status. Proof of vaccination will be required when checking-in, so please bring your COVID-19 vaccination record and photo ID with you to campus. The College will accept records of Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccines as authorized by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or any vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) for anyone currently residing outside the U.S. If you are not vaccinated, please consider registering for a virtual tour or appointment. Please contact admissions@artcenter.edu for options. Tour and appointment pre-registration is required; do not book travel prior to registering.

We are currently accepting and reviewing applications for our upcoming Fall, Spring, and Summer terms and look forward to welcoming the next generation of burgeoning artists and designers into our community.
