If you are currently enrolled in classes, you must submit an updated official college transcript with your final semester grades, course descriptions and updated artwork (if you're seeking studio credits) to the Office of Admissions (

      Please note that additional transfer credit is not likely to change your entrance level; however, you may be awarded additional liberal arts, history of art, or studio elective credit.


      If you have taken any Advanced Placement (AP) tests, please submit official scores to the Admissions Office as soon as possible. AP courses in which a student earned a score of a 3, 4, or 5, transfer to MassArt as studio electives, liberal arts electives, or History of Art electives. The only AP course equivalent to a specific, required MassArt course is AP Art History which is equivalent to HART-100 Intro to Western Art; an exam score of 4 or 5 may be required to receive credit for this course.

      International Baccalaureate (IB) scores of a 6 or 7 at the higher level are eligible for transfer elective credit. Please submit official scores to the Admissions Office as soon as possible.

    • MassArt is committed to making college a successful experience for all students, including those with documented disabilities. If you have an accessibility need, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) is available to assist you.

      In compliance with all regulations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA-AA), MassArt assures the protection of your right for equal access to educational opportunities. Student Accessibility Services within the ARC works with students to determine reasonable and necessary accommodations that can be made within the classroom and the studio. These accommodations may include additional time on examinations, rest breaks, note taking assistance, mobility assistance, or access to digital texts.

      In order to secure accommodations at MassArt, you must submit documentation of your disability along with the Request for Accommodations Form (in your Application Portal) for you to use to describe your accessibility needs at MassArt. Any information you choose to share with us, on this form or in person, is kept confidential.

    • All new incoming students have their class schedule built and registered for them by the Registrar's Office. Schedules are built based on placement level, required coursework, as well as seat and course availability. Schedule building for those who have paid their tuition deposit begins in late November. You will receive an email to your MassArt email address from the Registrar's Office when your schedule has been built. It will include a link to view your schedule online. Please note that schedules are not considered final until January 14th, the Friday before the semester begins. If any changes are made to your schedule, you will be notified via your MassArt email address.

      Will my classes be remote or hybrid? Can I choose?
      Some classes will be remote, while others will be hybrid. This will be indicated on your schedule under "Location", where it will list a classroom address or "Remote". Students are not able to choose their classes the first semester, but will do so their remaining semesters at MassArt. Unfortunately we are not able to tailor schedules to your individual requests, such as all morning classes or, all evening classes, etc. We are only able to tailor schedules for students who have registered and been approved for accomodations by the Academic Resource Center (ARC). After viewing your schedule and you still have questions, please contact the Registrar's Office at
