Late Entry Accelerated Program (LEAP)
This summer intensive program allows qualified students to complete first-year studio courses during the summer by taking a core set of undergraduate art courses (ADS 101, 102; AFA 101, 202) over a ten-week period. Students who complete the core during the summer submit the LEAP application and portfolio of ten examples of artwork on the last day of second summer session. The number of students admitted is competitive. Learn more about how to get a jump start on a major in art with LEAP (PDF).
The college academic records of a currently enrolled student is given greater consideration by the Admissions Committee than previous high school academic record or the SAT or ACT composite scores. A student's portfolio, course grades and GPA will be evaluated based upon the level of commitment and achievement beyond the minimum course or grade requirements.
