Transferring to the School of Art

Whether you are transferring from another university or from one of Carnegie Mellon’s other colleges, you’ll be classified as a freshman in the School of Art. Transfer students should expect to have freshmen status for at least the first semester at the School of Art. Transfer credit is evaluated after the applicant has studied at the School of Art for a period of time.

We only accept transfers to begin classes the fall semester (not for spring or summer semesters), so all transfer applicants to the School of Art need to apply by January 1

Portfolio guidelines

Transfer applicants to the School of Art must complete all admission requirements, including a portfolio review. Transfer applicants must submit a portfolio online, but are also encouraged to register for an on-campus review after submitting their portfolio online.
