    Hi Kevin,
    I have some question about the CURRICULUM SUGGESTIONS.
    Is it up to date? How long is a semester? Will the recommended classes in one semester be available at the same time? Will I be able to take the classes on the list during a relatively compacted time period? how long it would the break between each semester be?

    Thank you in advance!

    Hi Flatlux,

    Thanks for your interested in our classes

    The suggested curriculum page is current as the foundation classes don't change much.

    Each semester is 10 weeks in length and the class date and time slot might shift a little from semester to semester depending on the instructor's schedule.

    In general, we don't recommend taking more than 5 classes per semester. 1 class is plenty if you are working and 3~4 classes are good if you are starting out. With 5 classes, you have to be very good with time management as each class requires 8~12 hours of homework per week. For the storyboard classes, the homework hours can be even more at 20+ hours per week for each class.

    Each semester break is about 6 weeks.

    A lot of the answers to your questions are currently on the website and you can find them on the FAQ page:
    http://conceptdesignacad.com/new-page-1/

    Hope this will help~!!

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hi Shemorthman,

    Yes, you can learn how to draw starting with foundation classes. Start with classes such as "Intro to Perspective" & "Vis Com 1: Dynamic Sketching" to help you get started.

    For your reference, you can check out our Curriculum Suggestion page to understand which order of classes to take first:
    http://conceptdesignacad.com/curriculum/

    Hope this will help

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hi Shernorthman,

    We run 3 semesters a year and for the prices of the classes, you can find them here on our website.

    http://conceptdesignacad.com/class-schedule/

    Tuition rice semester depends on which and how many classes you take each semester and we usually make a price adjustment in the Summer to reflect inflation. So you might need to prepare a little extra budget cushion if you plan to study for multiple years.

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hello people!

    I've read at the school's FAQ that Concept Design Academy is NOT accredited. So how exactly do they handle visas? Or they don't accept international students? Or you have to attend with a tourist visa (in that case there's a stay limit, right?)

    Last post regarding that matter was back from 2007.

    Hi Technokill,

    Thanks for your interest

    Since CDA is not an accredited college, we do not offer any student visa to international students. However, we do have many international students studying at CDA studying under their 90 days visitor's visa. According to regulations, a visitor is able to take take classes without student visa as long as it is under 18 hours of class per week.

    We have many students traveling over each semester to study this way and several files for visa extension so they can stay for 2 semesters. This set up work very well for students who is interested in coming over for an intensive study of 1~2 semesters. Afterwards, they return home to continue their practice and portfolio building. We often also get many returning international students coming back again after their initial study with us.

    Hope this will help and please feel free to e-mail us at contact@conceptdesignacad.com for more details questions.

    Best,
    Kevin

    Hey KChen, thanks for the reply!

    Got 2 more concerns though:

    1- Do you offer portfolio prep for art colleges, like art center or otis?

    2- Would you say the PCC route for international students (for a 2 years associate degree) along with training at CDA (at the same time, for those 2 years) would be a valid option for someone wanting to work in the entertainment art field and live in the US?

    Let me know if it's best to discuss this via email!

    Best!
