Applications for admission to the Full-Time program at CHAVÓN may be submitted throughout the year. However, early application is encouraged, as admission is on a space-available basis. Admissions decisions will generally be made within two weeks after completion of the requirements listed below.
First-year applicants to the full-time program must begin their studies during the fall term (September to December).
Graduates of the Two-Year Program at CHAVÓN have the option of continuing their studies through the 2+2 Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree program with Parsons School of Design. The principal requirement for admission is the maintenance of a B (3.0) average at CHAVÓN and meeting The New School’s admissions and English language fluency requirements.
1Applicants who have completed less than one year of college or university study must submit official transcripts from both their high school and college or university. Those with a full year or more of study at an accredited college or university are only required to submit their post-secondary transcripts.
2The full-time, two-year program at CHAVÓN is the equivalent of a US associate degree. Parsons School of Design accepts CHAVÓN credits towards its BFA degree on a 2 + 2 basis and qualified CHAVÓN graduates who successfully meet Parsons admissions requirements are admitted to the BFA curriculum at the 3rd year (junior) level. Many other colleges, universities and art schools, in the US and internationally, also accept CHAVÓN credits, although the acceptance of transfer credit by any educational institution is always at its discretion. Applicants should also note that Parsons does not offer a major in film.
3Film applicants can only apply by submitting a portafolio.
