It's Go Time.

Kick off your college career in four easy steps.

Applying for admission is easier than you think. Just complete these four simple steps and launch your future in art and design today.


The first step in joining our art and design community is to meet with an Admissions Counselor, who will introduce you to our campus culture, listen closely to what you want from a college, and help you determine if RMCAD is the right fit for you. For U.S. Citizens, we require an interview either in-person or by telephone; international applicants may also qualify for an interview via email.


Apply online today, or request a paper application from your Admissions Counselor. If you’re accepted, your Admissions Counselor will walk you through the process of applying for financial aid, submitting your required health forms, locating student housing, enrolling for classes, and attending orientation.

There is a non-refundable $50 (USD) application fee, however you choose to apply.

Begin Your Application


A strong portfolio is incredibly beneficial for anyone starting art school. Beyond being an admissions requirement for the majority of our programs, RMCAD may choose to grant you college credit for outstanding work. A solid portfolio may even open the doors to certain scholarships, so submit yours today.

Your portfolio should include a one or two paragraph artist statement and 10 -15 pieces of your best work. Don't have a portfolio? Talk to an admissions counselor about your options.

Submit Your Work


Official high school transcripts or GED test scores should be sent directly to the Admission Department. Transfer students should submit any previous college transcripts, and may be asked to submit a high school transcript as well, pending review of completed credits and GPA.

Even if you’re still in high school, you must submit an unofficial transcript at the time you complete your application. We will use unofficial transcripts to evaluate your admission file for acceptance. Official transcripts must be received before you can enroll in classes.
