Reciprocity

Art schools around the USA who are members of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) may allow you to access their career services office and job listings. In exchange, we will allow one of their students or graduates to use our services. This arrangement is referred to as reciprocity.

  • To apply for reciprocity, please send the following information to careerdevelopment@massart.edu: Your full name, Address, Phone number, Major, Degree earned, Graduation date
  • Choose from the list of AICAD institutions on: AICAD.org. Please know that the institutions located in NYC are not accepting reciprocity requests. An NYC resource that may be helpful to you is nyfa.org
  • Please do not select multiple institutions. You may be required to visit the selected office in person to access their services
  • We will send an email requesting reciprocity for you to the college you have selected. You will receive a copy of the email as well
  • We will notify you if the request is denied. This may occur if the career services office at the college you have chosen has been overwhelmed with requests for reciprocity
  • If accepted, reciprocity is generally valid for 3-12 months, depending on the institution
