    Eileen Cowin is an artist who sees living as a means to break boundaries, and psychology as a way to confront us with strange attitudes or to implicate us in seemingly self-imposed spatial confinements. –Art Papers April 2007 by Eve Wood

Decisions For Transfer Students

When will I know if I got in?
All of your application materials must be received by the Admissioms Office in order for your application to be considered complete. Once your application is complete, the Admissions Committee will notify you of a decision in about three weeks.
   
After acceptance, how do I secure a spot?

Accepted students who plan to enroll are required to make a nonrefundable $250 tuition deposit to confirm attendance and reserve a place in the entering class. The Intent to Register Form and tuition deposit are due within two weeks of notification of acceptance or by May 1, whichever is later. The full amount of the deposit is credited to your first semester's tuition.

After the deposit is received, you will receive information about registration, orientation, housing, and tuition payment. Prior to enrolling, you must submit final high school or college transcripts. Acceptance is final only upon receipt of these documents.

Choosing a Major

Some major programs may have limited space available and may require a portfolio review and minimum GPA for acceptance.

   
   

AP
Admitted students may submit scores from Advanced Placement Examinations for credit. A score of 3, 4, or 5 is required in History, Math and Science, and a score of 4 or 5 is required in Art History or English. With these required scores, AP credit will count for up to three semester credits each toward the first-semester requirements in these areas. Because of the specialized nature of Otis' studio programs, AP credit for studio art is not accepted.

International Baccalaureate
Students who have completed the IB Upper Level exams with a score of 5 or more in any of the following subject areas are eligible to receive credit toward the College's graduation requirements: Language (English), Individuals and Societies (Social Sciences), Experimental Sciences (Natural Science), and Mathematics. No credit will be given for Standard Level exams regardless of the score. Final acceptance of IB exams for credit will be made by the Admissions Office in conjunction with the Liberal Studies Faculty and the Registrar.

Re-Activation
Admission is only valid for entry to the semester when it is offered. If you choose not to enroll that semester, you may request that the application be “reactivated” for a future semester. Applications and supporting materials are held for one year after submittal. New materials will be required if you request reactivation after one year. Contact admissions@otis.edu for further information.

Re-Admission
Former Otis students who officially withdrew in good standing before completing the BFA may apply for re-admission. Contact the Office of Registration and Records at (310) 665 6950, otisreg@otis.edu.
