How do I choose an Art College?

Sarasota Portfolio Day
Sarasota Portfolio Day

Art making is a special kind of learning experience. Of particular concern to art students should be a college's faculty, facilities, and equipment. You should also consider the school's proximity to museums, galleries, and other cultural resources, in addition to its academic standards, extracurricular activities, housing, costs, and financial aid offerings. We urge you to gather enough information so that you may choose a supportive and stimulating art college environment that meets your individual needs. Try your best to visit the colleges that interest you, to get a feel for each school before you make your final decision. Investigate the colleges' accreditations and the transferability of their credits, and be sure you understand each school's degree offerings and majors.
