How to Apply: For Kent State University Students


Design and merchandising majors should complete required 20000 level FDM courses prior to attending the NYC Studio Program. Participants must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA by the commitment contract date.

Application Procedures

1. Intent to Participate form:

Complete and submit the online Intent to Participate form to hold a spot in the program for a given term. Submitting the Intent to Participate form does not commit you to the program, it simply holds your place in a given term until the Commitment Contract and Program Fee deadline.  

Once your application is processed, you will receive an email confirmation indicating if you were accepted or placed on a wait list and further details.   

Students will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.


2. Commitment Contract:

After you have received your email confirmation you must submit the Commitment Contract in order to secure your place in the program.  The original Commitment Contract must be mailed to the address on the form and postmarked by the due date. Keep a copy for your records.

Once we have received your Commitment Contract, you will receive a confirmation email verifying that you have met the GPA requirement and may make the Program Fee payment.

DO NOT make the Program Fee payment until you have submitted your Commitment Contract and have received an email from the NYC Studio verifying you have met the requirements.


3. Program Fee:

After we receive your Commitment Contract and verify your eligibility, you will receive instructions for paying the Program Fee.  The Program Fee must be paid online with a credit card.
