PreCollege Application Deadline: May 1, 2019
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 1, 2019.
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.

“SFAI has pushed me into getting more personal and meaningful with my work, trying out things that I was terrified of doing, thinking out of the box, and stepping out of my boundaries. Really, art is a lifestyle—and life itself—which it what makes it so captivating.”
