Due to the limited space in MICA’s Pre-College Studio Residency Program, placement is competitive, and most spaces in the program fill prior to the final deadline. Early application is strongly recommended. Course placement is assigned based on a student’s indicated preference as well as the strength of the student’s portfolio. We cannot guarantee that a student will be placed in his/her first-choice core studio or workshop. If all three requested classes are full, the student is notified as quickly as possible and is given the opportunity to select alternate courses. Applications are not considered complete until all required materials are received by the Pre-College Studio Residency Program; incomplete applications will not be considered.
Within two weeks of receiving your application packet, MICA will mail a confirmation notice, which will indicate that either:
- All application materials have been received and your application is being processed, or
- Information/application materials are missing and your application will not be processed until all required materials have been received
Priority Application Deadline: March 24
Application materials must be postmarked by March 24, 2017
Students who submit their application materials by the priority deadline will receive notification by MID APRIL of either full admission to the program status or waitlist status. Full admission status indicates that a student has been enrolled in the Pre-College program and has been scheduled for classes and workshops. Financial aid awards will also be sent with full admission. Waitlist status indicates that a student is being seriously considered, but MICA has not yet been able to place the student in the program.
Final Application Deadline: April 14
Application materials must be postmarked by April 14, 2017
Applications will be accepted until the final deadline. If applicants meet the final deadline, notification will be sent by MID MAY of final decisions about placement in the program and scholarship awards.
Payment Deadline: May 26
After students receive notification of admission to the program, full payment is required. Checks, money orders, or credit card information for the full balance of tuition and fees must be received by June 1. If full payment is not received by this date, students forfeit their space in the program.
A payment plan option is available, information on payment plan options will be mailed with acceptance notification.
