College and Adult Level

College and adult students who are 18 years of age and have completed at least one year of college or who are 19 years of age or older by June 1, 2015, for Session I or July 6, 2015, for Session II, enroll in this summer program as a complement to a full-time degree program and to gain intensive exposure to design disciplines that help them achieve their academic and professional goals. Students also enroll in this program to build the skills and portfolio necessary for acceptance to graduate programs.

Session I is for college and adult participants only. During Session II, pre-college students are also on campus and a limited number of courses combine levels.
