  • A dynamic portrait of the life of computer prodigy Aaron Swartz who championed free speech and data sharing, this must-see documentary premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah and was the opening night film at the 2014 Hot Docs International Film Festival in Toronto, Canada.

Special One Year Program For College Graduates

College graduates with a prior bachelor's degree who wish to gain further specialized education may apply to the One-Year Program.

Students may have majored in art or design or have a bachelor's degree in a different discipline, but must have considerable professional art or design experience. Most of the coursework is taken at the senior level, although some flexibility in class selection allows a program that suits individual backgrounds and needs. Fashion Design does not offer this program.

Students admitted to this nonmatriculating program are subject to the same rules and regulations as matriculated students, and must meet the same admissions requirements as BFA applicants. They will receive an official transcript of credit earned at Otis but are not eligible to receive the BFA degree. They are also ineligible for financial aid.

You can apply online, it's fast and easy, simply create an account and fill in the blanks. It's a secure form, and it helps the environment. Apply Now

For further questions, please contact admissions@otis.edu

Applicants are usually notified of the Admissions Committee decision within three weeks of receipt of all required materials.
