PreCollege Application deadline May 1, 2017
For more information about selecting work for your portfolio and acceptable letters of recommendation, please visit the FAQ section.
Due to our small program and course sizes, acceptance into the program and course selection is competitive. We highly recommend applying early, or by the priority application deadline of April 3, 2017.
Acceptance to SFAI PreCollege does not automatically enroll you in courses. In addition to applying early, we recommend submitting your tuition deposit promptly in order to have the best chance of getting into your first-choice courses. You will be notified by phone and e-mail of an admissions decision within one week of receiving your completed application and materials.

“Art has always been a passion of mine but it was not until I attended SFAI PreCollege that I felt my art had a voice and I could change the world with it. I have never been in such a caring and open-minded environment where everyone accepts each other and their work. This program has truly opened my eyes to a bigger and better world.”
