International Students

International students must follow the full admission procedure and provide an official high school transcript evaluation from an accredited evaluation service (e.g. World Education Service, International Research Foundation, or Educational Credential Evaluators) indicating successful high school completion.

Additionally, a TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is required if English is not a student's first language. A TOEFL score of at least 550 (paper based), 213 (computer based). or 80 (internet based) must be achieved.

International students living/studying in the United States may have the TOEFL waived after meeting with an Admissions representative.

After being accepted to the Art Academy, an international student must submit the $300 tuition deposit and a $200 fee to cover processing and international postage. The student must provide notarized bank documentation of funds in US Dollars to support one year of study/living expenses at the Art Academy before an I-20 Form will be issued. Please consult the Admissions Office for these amounts- as they change annually.

Additionally, all international students must provide proof of full health insurance coverage for any medical procedures or emergencies that may arise during their course of study at the Art Academy.
