Art Center College of Design | Pasadena, California | Learn to Create. Influence Change.

Dates + Deadlines

Art Center reviews and accepts application on an ongoing basis for most undergraduate majors. We accept applications for the fall, spring and summer for most majors. However, currently we do not accept summer applications for Fine Art, Interaction Design, Entertainment Design, Film, or Photography + Imaging.

The ongoing nature of the reviews makes it difficult to determine at what point a class will become full. You can contact the Admissions Office for the status of room for any given term and we will inform you whether applications are still being accepted.

We will consider applications and accept tuition deposits to hold spaces up until the time of registration if space is available. However, we strongly encourage students to plan ahead and apply early to avoid disappointment.

Advertising, Entertainment Design, Interaction Design, and Fine Art consider applications for the Fall and Spring terms only. Entertainment Design has a priority deadline of February 1 for fall, and October 1 for spring. In addition, once enrolled, Entertainment Design students take studio classes in the Fall and Spring terms only. They may take Humanities and Design Sciences classes in Summer Term.

If room is unavailable in the term for which a student is applying, the Admissions Committee will consider the application for the next consecutive available term, with the exception of Entertainment Design.
