Upon notification of acceptance, graduate applicants must submit a nonrefundable deposit to hold a place in the program

Application Decisions

Notification for master's degree applicants takes place throughout the spring, usually by early April.

A health certificate, mailed on acceptance, must be returned to the Admissions Office before orientation with a negative Tuberculosis test.

Upon receiving a letter of acceptance from the College, any person with a disability who might require special accommodation by the College should discuss their needs with the Center for the Student Experience staff.

Students may request a copy of ArtCenter's Student Handbook, which contains additional policy information. A copy will be provided to all students at Orientation.

ArtCenter reserves the right to rescind an offer of admission at its discretion and if any information contained in the application is found to be incomplete, inaccurate or misleading, or if additional information leads to serious concerns.

Tuition Deposit

On acceptance, an enrollment agreement form and further instructions will be issued. The completed agreement, along with a nonrefundable and nontransferable tuition deposit, is required to hold your place in the class. The graduate deposit is $400.

Tuition deposits will be accepted until classes are full for each term; acceptance does not guarantee a place in the class. A student's place in the class cannot be assured until the College has sent the student a written confirmation of acceptance of the agreement and deposit. These are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis until the classes are filled.

The availability of space can change rapidly. 


Deferrals are not possible except by special permission of the department; financial aid and scholarships cannot be deferred.
