First Year & Transfer Spring Information

Welcome to MICA!

Congratulations on your admission to MICA!  Our goal is to help you make a smooth transition through one of our orientation programs. We are still in the middle of planning New Student Orientation, but please stay tuned. We'll provide updates as soon as we have them. Please explore this orientation page to learn more about the programs and what to expect when you arrive at MICA.


We have worked to tailor an experience that reflects your experience as a new or transfer student to MICA. Throughout the orientation program, your Orientation Leader will be there to help answer any questions you may have and to help ensure a smooth transition to MICA.

New Student Orientation will take place:
Saturday, January 14, 2023

Figuring out your housing situation is a critical step in your successful transition to MICA. We know that many of our transfer students will live off campus, so to provide some helpful resources before you arrive at Orientation, please visit our Off-Campus Housing Listing. For those of you living on campus, please plan to move in on Friday, January 13th between 10 am - 4 pm. 

All new and Transfer students should arrive for Orientation check-in on Saturday, January 14th, between 8:30 am - 9 am in Main Building. At check-in, you will receive the  Orientation schedule and other information to help you in your transition. 

It is important to remember that as a new MICA student you are responsible for knowing and abiding by all of the policies and procedures at MICA, some of which may be different from your previous institution. 

Finally, we hope you are looking forward to beginning your time at MICA. No matter where you are joining us from and what experiences you will bring with you, we have high hopes that you will find MICA to be a welcoming and inspiring community of artists!



We know your transition to MICA marks an important milestone. We are proud to celebrate this exciting new chapter with you, and are here to support you every step of the way. You can always get in touch via email at
