Admission to Cornish is selective. We look for students with passion for their art form and interest in developing both their creative and technical skills. Space in each program is limited and students are encouraged to meet our application deadline of February 1.
Cornish practices rolling admission; you can apply at any time up to February 1. After February 1, students should contact the Office of Admission to inquire about space availability.
