NYFA Admissions Requirements
NYFA provides a supportive, welcoming community for students of all backgrounds and experience levels to pursue higher education in the arts. Students with ambitious creative goals are invited to apply year round for our Fall, Spring, and Summer graduate and undergraduate programs through our rolling admissions process. All applicants to our programs and workshops must have a high school diploma or acceptable equivalent by the time of the course start date.
NYFA strives to make education in the visual arts accessible to the most diverse, international, and broadest spectrum of students. Applicants must express a serious desire to explore the art and craft of visual storytelling in their application materials. Please note that our classes are taught in English and students must be fluent. Students can find the required application materials for each program in the resources listed below.
Applicants and accepted students who have not yet enrolled may request to change their requested Start Date, Program, or Location up to three times, before incurring a new application fee. Upon a 4th request and any subsequent request to change Start Date, Program, or Location, a new application fee will be charged each time of such request in the amount of the published application fee at the time of the request.
