Modeled on the tradition of artists’ studio visits, MFAW students meet one-on-one with faculty advisors who offer intensive, focused insight and feedback on independently driven projects.
Students may work with advisors from both within the Writing Program and across the School to expand the critical vocabularies that are pertinent to their practice.
If you are currently a student or are a recent graduate, we recommend you request letters of recommendation from current or former instructors.
Letters of recommendation should be submitted electronically via the References section of the application form.
Official transcripts can be sent both in digital and hard-copy format.
Digital transcripts can be sent from the degree- or credit-granting institution to [email protected]
You are strongly encouraged to schedule a language proficiency test appointment as early as possible in order to receive official test scores prior to the application deadline.
SAIC accepts official scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing System (IELTS), and Duolingo. Please upload an unofficial copy of your test score results to the International Requirements section of the application form.
Transcripts are records of your studies that list the courses you completed, the grades received, and provide evidence of degree conferral.
They may include grade sheets, exam results, final diplomas, degrees, or graduation certificates.
