You must complete the Admissions application process and the program requirements to be considered for admission. After the regular deadline has passed, the School of Critical Studies continues to accept applications on a rolling basis until the programs are filled.

After completing CalArts’ general application, applicants to the School of Critical Studies submit the required writing portfolio online via SlideRoom. 

You will receive the SlideRoom portfolio submission link after you select your program in the online application.
