International Applicants

The International Student Admissions/Services Department helps and guides international students with any questions or concerns they may have. The advisors assist each student with the application and admissions process, student visa and immigration procedures, academic advising and class registration. Every semester, the department hosts an international student orientation to help new students get acquainted with the Academy of Art University and San Francisco. Additionally, the Academy has its own English as a Second Language (ESL) program. Students may enroll in art and design classes while taking ESL classes at the same time.
