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 Vaccination Requirement for On Campus Appointments: Please note that our on campus appointments require that you have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19, wear a face covering on campus and practice physical distancing. Proof of vaccination will be required via a link after you have registered and you will be required to bring your vaccination record 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. You can view our COVID-19 page on our website here. Students are allowed to bring one registered, vaccinated guest and must pre-register for their appointment at least 2 days in advance.

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.
