Admission to Moore is based on both the quality of your portfolio and your overall academic record. Your desire and motivation to make art and your creative potential is also a key factor in the admissions process. Careful consideration is given to each applicant to evaluate her potential for success as a student.



The Admissions Committee reviews applications on a continual basis. After completing the application process, you will be notified of an admissions decision within two to three weeks.



If accepted, you may defer your enrollment for up to one year. You must submit written notification of the decision to defer to the Admissions Office, indicating the semester during which you would like to attend. Tuition deposits may only be deferred for one year.
