    Our online application system allows students to manage their application process. For a complete program listing, please visit our Graduate Studies website. Review the steps below for a quick overview of the process:

    1. Prepare Admission Checklist Items

    • To expedite your application submission, be prepared to provide contact information for academic references. Students are able to upload select checklist items during the application process, or upload everything after submitting their application in their application portal. 
      • Which checklist items can I upload during the application process?

        • Required: Passport (international students only)
        • Optional Uploads: Unofficial Transcripts, Evidence of NYS Teaching Certification or MTBC credential, TAGA Application Documents (e.g., letter of interest, resume, TA grading sample), MFA requirements (Artist Statement, Digital Portfolio, TAGA Documents)
    • International applicants:  be prepared to upload a copy of your passport. You will be asked to upload additional documentation within your applicant portal if you are seeking an I-20.
