Common Application

You may submit your application via the Undergraduate Common Application. The Common Application allows you to apply to any of its 456 member schools by inputting your general information only once so you can focus your time on the individual requirements for each school application.

In addition to the Common Application’s general questions, you MUST submit SAIC's supplement to be considered for admission to SAIC.

Submitting the Common Application provides you access to an ePortfolio link within 48 hours of completing the entire application (including supplement and fee).

Transfer Application

You may submit your application by filling out our online Transfer Application along with the application fee of $65 (check or money order only, made payable to SAIC). Submitting the Transfer Application provides you access to an ePortfolio link within 48 hours of receiving the application.

You may also mail in your application by filling out the Transfer Application [PDF].
