The College of Motion Picture Arts will accept Freshmen on-line applications for consideration of admission for Fall 2013 starting August 1, 2012.
The application package for the Animation and Digital Arts Program consists of the following items. If any of these items are not received, your application will be incomplete and will not be reviewed by the Admissions Committee:
BFA applicants may not submit portfolio items as part of the application.
Admission into the film major as a transfer student requires that no less than 30 hours of FSU’s liberal studies requirements be completed at FSU or through transferable credit from another institution prior to Fall admission into the College of Motion Picture Arts. A student may apply as a transfer to the College of Motion Picture Arts during the fall semester of his/her freshman or sophomore year in college but not during the junior or senior years in college.
Freshman and transfer applicants who are being considered for admission into the program will be invited for mandatory interviews with the Motion Picture Arts Admissions Committee. Those selected to interview for Fall 2013 admission will be notified as far in advance as possible, but not less than 10 days prior to the interview session. We anticipate that interviews will take place during February and March 2013; specific dates have not yet been determined.
All students must maintain a “B” average in all major requirements. Continuation as a major in Motion Picture Arts will depend on the development of each student’s talents, skills, professional discipline and academic record. A student’s work and commitment are under continuous review, and any candidate who fails to maintain high standards will be dismissed from the program.
