Undergraduate / Deadlines
Applying for Fall 2016
MassArt has a priority deadline of February 1 for admission for the fall 2016 semester. Applications completed by February 1 are given priority consideration for admission, scholarships, and housing. International applicants are strongly encouraged to apply by this deadline to allow ample time to process paperwork in support of the visa application.
The admissions committee begins reviewing completed applications in January. Applications received after February 1 are considered on an ongoing, space-available basis. Complete your application early to receive your decision in a timely fashion.
If MassArt is your first-choice college, you may want to consider early action. This option is intended for students who have a propensity for art and strong academic credentials. Admissions decisions for early action applicants are mailed in early January. To be considered for early action, you must:
- Submit all application requirements by December 1, 2015.
- Indicate your interest in early action on your application.
- Be a first-time freshman; transfer students should apply by February 1.
Please note that if you are not accepted for early action, you will not be automatically reviewed for the regular deadline. Furthermore, if you are not accepted under early action you must wait a year to reapply.
