Early College Program Online Summer Institute

Online classes take place Monday through Friday in Central Time. Times will be adjusted for international students outside of the US to ensure meeting times work for your time zone. On average, students will join their peers in a virtual classroom and will navigate the virtual resource library and work on studio projects on a schedule that works best for them. Faculty will work with each student to determine a one-on-one advising schedule and assist students as they work in a more self-driven way on their projects. Virtual classroom meetings and critiques will be complemented by visiting artist lectures, workshops, admissions presentations, and portfolio reviews. Note that faculty will have office hours and will be available to assist students during designated independent studio work time and will help students make meaningful connections with peers.
