Previous experience is not required for most classes. Unless otherwise noted,
students may enroll in the selected class without submitting a portfolio. Students
may request guidance in the selection of courses by contacting the School Office Services.


New York Institute of Fine Arts is not an accredited institution and therefore does
not offer degree credit for its classes. However, classes taken at the Institute may be accepted for credit by other institutions. Students should contact their receiving institutions to determine whether they can receive credit for classes completed at the institute.

University Placement Service

What are the benefits?
Applying to an institution of higher learning is stressful in any context, but can be especially complicated when applying to a higher institution in art or related field, whose standards  you might not be familiar with. Our services eliminates a lot of the guesswork and makes the process a more relaxed, comfortable, and exciting process.

We can provide support as required throughout the entire application process including

  • Selecting the qualification and institution that best suits your needs
  • Academic advice on an appropriate study plan to ensure you meet the admissions entry requirements for your selected program
  • Organizing a campus visit where you can meet staff, explore the campus, and see the facilities
  • Tracking your application to provide you with a quicker decision
  • Prepare you in advance to eliminate colleges rejection.

Ask your advisor for further information on the range of options available to you.


Students must provide their own materials. Each instructor provides a list
of suggested materials for each course. All class materials lists can be found on our
advising office. The Institute is not responsible for lost or stolen materials


The computers and printer in the New Media Room are available for use by
