Watch as Drake Heptig talks about his experience as a transfer student at MICA.
Apply to live on Campus
Transfer students are not required to live on campus, but you can apply to live in a residence hall.
We guarantee an on-campus housing assignment for the first 30 transfer students who pay their housing deposit along with their tuition deposit. Residence Life will contact these 30 students with the next steps in the housing and roommate matching process. Please note that single/double room-type requests are considered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Off-Campus Housing? Investigate Your Options
For Housing Search tips, and information about rooms/apartments for rent and local apartment complexes go to our Off-Campus Housing page.
Let MICA know your decision: make your tuition and housing deposits
As soon as you know you have decided to attend MICA, make it official!
Fill out and return the Declaration of Intent form (found in your digital admission packet and hard copy admission folder). Your tuition deposit ($450) and if living on campus, your housing deposit ($550) are due on or before your Candidate Reply Deadline: May 1, 2020.
Scholarship offers and financial aid awards must also be accepted, and forms signed and postmarked no later than your candidate reply deadline.
