Admission Process

Our students at Tyler School of Art benefit from an uncommon vantage point. Tyler is a window onto a global network of artists of every kind at the forefront of their disciplines.

At the same time, Tyler is also an intensely personal place—focused intently on the individual creative growth and exploration of every student. We encourage you to explore this guide through Tyler and take advantage of the links to our new website where you can explore student work and the Tyler experience in a dynamic new forum.

On this page you will find links to our undergraduate and graduate admissions process as well as deadlines, scholarship opportunities and events on campus. The entire Tyler site is filled with student work, profiles of the people on campus, virtual tours and information on our presence in the world. We encourage you to explore, contact us with any questions and, most importantly, come visit.
