    Hi, I have a diploma in fine arts and would like to apply to US universities. Was wondering what is the process like? Do I apply as a transfer student and would I need to take SATs? I intend to major in studio fine arts.

    Thanks!

    Hello,

    I applied to the United States of America this year.

    It would depend largely on where you were looking to go and that would also be guided by whether or not you require financial aid.

    Where are you looking to go?

    Hi Jay,

    Thank you for your reply!

    I'm looking at universities such as Cooper Union, SVA or SAIC.

    Aid? As in financial aid? Well, yeah. It's too darn expensive, have already taken a gap year, and perhaps another one, just to save up for uni fees. Planning to take a loan from banks and my parents on top of everything. Since I'm already working so hard for uni, I just figured that I might as well aim for an experience that might be extremely intense. Figured NY unis would be the best place.

    But, currently questioning whether my qualifications are acceptable....

    Okay well you will need to check that international students are awarded aid of some description at these places. Also, email or call them directly to ask about your diploma.
