1) Do you need a one year art foundation to go to Parsons?

2) Dont take this the wrong way but these kids in my class were talking about Parsons and one person was like "did you know that 80% of the students there are asians?" i just wanted to know if thats true

2nd one seems like a total exaggeration ... there are asians there, but not 80%, or at least when I went to visit I didn't have that impression.

If you are transfering, they want to make sure you are profficient in the basics. You should have credits equivalent to their foundations progra, basically life drawing, color theory and all that jazz. Just to let you know, they're more critical of transfer students. it's pretty hard to transfer in, while going through their foundations into the bfa fashion program its pretty easy.

As for asians, I would say 80%, I would say something like 50%..it seems a lot of students are from korea. The school is, however, about 76% female. At least that's what they told us during transfer student orientation (and just to give you a number, they said 5500 students applied for transfers into parsons and they only accepted 161, this is for all of degrees. I believe fashion accounted for about 50 or so students)

Does anyone on the boards here go to Parsons? I need to know if they have a magazine or any type of a student publication. I want to submit something. I couldn't find anything on the web.

The College Entrance Examination Board (CEE administers the TOEFL exam. International students should register for the exam at the earliest possible test date available. Visit the TOEFL WWW site for more information.
  2. Official Transcripts: Have original copies of your official high school and/or college transcripts sent directly to Parsons at the address above. Photocopies are not acceptable. International students must supply official English translations of all requested records. Untranslated documents will not be accepted.
  3. Read all requirements carefully. Only send the materials requested for the program to which you are applying.
You are not required to present any support documentation unless you are accepted into one of the degree programs. We request that you do not send such documentation prior to your acceptance.

Download the Application:

Curious how most of the students can afford to attend. financial aid is available but the thought of $40,000+ debt right out of school is not one I like...

I agree. I'm planning to apply and hopefully attend but I certainly don't have paper coming out my a**... so then as soon as I graduate... I'm in ****. Ironically.
