    Sure. Get any GE's out of the way that you can so you can focus on just your studio classes. It doesn't have to be PCC, but it is close.

    If I recall, you could also take some classes at CalTech too if you were going to ACCD, but I never did.

    it is one of the best out there, the teachers are great top-notch, it is better if you check it out yourself, talk to the counselors and the chair and check the curriculum.

    got accepted for fall 2010 illustration. this 35k tuition price tag suddenly got a lot more real.

    don't know if i'm gonna go. really torn between art center, which seems like such a good school, or trying to learn as much as I can on my own and go the cheaper route with a local art school. :/

    not that i'm expecting any, but does anyone know when they get back to you on scholarships and stuff like that?

    i think is like a month or two after you receive your acceptance letter.

    Art Center's offering me tons of Financial Aid and Scholarships. I'm planning on getting my MFA there in Fine Art after I'm done with BFA @ UC Irvine. Really stoked

    Talent and Creativity are yours to use and keep

    grades

    i want to apply for Fall 2011 to the Illustration (Illustration design) department, ive been wanting to goto ACCD for the past.. 4years but ive been putting it off and kind of scared of not being able to get in.

    at one time i remember it used to say that a 3.0 is required to apply, but ive noticed it now says that 3.0 is the reccomended GPA

    my teachers and peers tell me my work is strong enough to get in (i still dont think it is but im working on it) but i used to do terrible in all my academic classes (ive been doing better). i have A's and B's in all my art classes though. and so, i have a 2.8GPA right now.

    i was wondering what your guys' experiences or friends' experiences were on grades when you/they applied and how harsh ACCD is about it on applications.

    Hey guys, I have a question for all the entertainment design majors. If you excluded all the non entertainment classes like general education, how many terms does the 8 terms actually come out to? Is there a full course list for the entire 8 terms of entertainment design on the web?

    There isn't much info on the website so I'm gonna ask here instead (though I kinda got some ideas) :
    1. Is there a study abroad program offered?
    2. Can you double major or minor something?
    3. How hard is it to get a reasonably priced housing around the campus? (I'm from east coast)
    I'm torn between illustration and GD major (transfer student). Help please~

    1. yes there is, they have different programs available.
    2. yes, in fact some of the majors are referred as bachelors in arts and science, as well as different tracks offered for each major.
    3. no campus housing, you have to look for something around the area.

    _________________________________
    Actually...
    1. No there isn't really a study abroad program.. They may have some for other majors such as product/ad but not for illustration. I've asked Ann (chair of illustration) and there isn't a study abroad program for us. She says she is possibly setting one up for London in the future but it is all very tentative.
    2. No you can't double major. You can't be a graphics/illustration you have to choose one. Yes we sort of have minors. In each major there are several emphasis/focuses. A specific track in a major, but it is within the major. For example, illustration tracks are: motion, fine arts, entertainment arts, illust. design but you can't minor outside of that. That does not limit you from learning other things though. If you are interested in something else too you should try taking electives in it. You can mold the schedule a bit to conform to what you wanna do so just don't constrict yourself just because you are in a particular major. it's your money you should learn what you want to learn!
    3. housing is a bit pricy around the area but shouldnt be too hard to find.. look on craigslist and postings around school.

    It's kind of important to be sure about which major you want to do. I mean you could change after a while but it's a hassle and more costly. You can sometimes tell by the kind of work you like to do (post your stuff!) or what you like to look at, what/who inspires you, what you get really excited about, what kind of job you want etc etc.

    Thanks chil3 and pipermints. I'm gonna consider applying for illustration. What I wanna do is like design and commercial work, and emphasis on illustration design and motion looks like the way to go. But can I focus on more than one emphasis? Thanks again

    Design is a really broad term.. haha did you mean graphic design? Illustration design is more editorial (magazine, comics) kind of stuff I think. If you looked at the gallery and that work interests you then by all means. Definitely look at the type of work. No you can't do more than one emphasis but like I said try taking electives and classes that you want. You don't have to choose an emphasis til 3rd termish so i wouldnt worry about that yet. you should bring your work to a counselor/teacher and talk to them about it if you aren't sure about major

    i was told by a former Art Center Illustration student to take some liberal arts and writing classes at the local community college while i'm still in high school, allowing me to focus more on the actual drawing/painting. what classes should i take exactly?

    (sorry if this has been discussed before it's a big thread & idk how i'd search for this specific topic)

    doesn't really matter, you still need to take the writing test if you go to art center to see which writing studio class you need: regular or intensive, the only way to waive writing studio class is if you have a bachelor and take a university writing class.

    Hey does anyone know if entertainment design for fall 2011 is still open?? I know it's early but I don't know how fast those spots fill up but I imagine tons of applicants to be extremely prepared.. I haven't completed my portfolio so I'm getting nervous. Due to my time difference, I can't make a call over to ACCD myself so I'm hoping someone here can let me know.

    Alright thanks man. Ok and I know this might seem like a silly question but Ent D is also on the rolling app system right?? They said the "priority deadline is Feb 1 - Feb 15," but why the window? Does that mean apps will only be accepted, or considered, during that time period...so I have until February to complete my portfolio, or should I be looking to complete and submit by winter break? Thanks so much for the replies.

    the early the better, i received my acceptance letter 3 or 2 weeks before the deadline to turn in my portfolio and i send it to them a week before i got accepted.
