Workshops Admission Requirements

Applying to Short-Term Workshops at NYFA

NYFA’s short-term workshops are designed to provide practical experience in the film, media, and performing arts. As our workshops are hands-on and intensive, prospective students should have enthusiasm and curiosity for visual storytelling within their chosen discipline. To apply and enroll in a short-term workshop at NYFA, prospective students must submit a completed program application.

Submitting Applications

To begin the process, prospective candidates must submit an application. We recommend that students allow 20-40 minutes to fill out the application. Please note that students must submit a non-refundable $50 application fee. This is payable as part of the online application.

Required Application Materials

Applicants must submit the following materials for admission:

  • Completed Program Application
  • Application Fee ($50)
  • Proof of High School Completion
  • Proof of English Proficiency

The following sections provide detailed information regarding each required application material.

Admission Stipulation

Please note that admission to any NYFA program is based upon applicant information received during the admissions process. If, however, a student, after having been admitted but before starting classes, demonstrates that they are not fully prepared to commence studies at the Academy, NYFA will meet with the student to determine a proper course of action. This may include additional testing or instruction, deferring enrollment to a later semester, or enrollment in a different program of study better suited to the student.
