Special Requirements for Music and Art Students
In addition to acceptance to Anna Maria College, Music and Art students must be accepted into their chosen program by completing a music audition or art portfolio review. Please contact Professor Luke Buffenmyer at firstname.lastname@example.org for art and Professor Roger Greene at email@example.com for music. You can also call (508) 849-3450 for further information or to schedule your audition or portfolio review.
Anna Maria College adheres to a rolling admission policy. There is no absolute deadline. Applications are reviewed throughout the year. However, interested students are strongly encouraged to complete their application by March of their senior year if applying for fall admission or by April if applying as a transfer student. This is particularly important for those who intend to apply for financial aid as there are firm deadlines for certain types of assistance. If applying for admission to the spring semester, all students are encouraged to complete their applications at least one month prior to the beginning of the semester.
Students may be granted advanced standing for credits earned in a variety of ways beyond those earned at other accredited postsecondary institutions.
· Advanced Placement: Students who have taken an Advanced Placement course or courses in high school and earned a grade of 3 or better on the examination may apply for college credit. The number of credits will be determined by the specific course(s). The submission of official test scores is the responsibility of the student. The College will evaluate and notify the student of credit granted once scores are received. Refer to www.apcentral.collegeboard.com for further information about Advanced Placement.
· CLEP (College Level Examination Program): CLEP is a national examination program that measures knowledge learned in specific subject areas through life and/or work experiences. A minimum score of 50 is required. Credit will be granted upon receipt of an official score report. Refer to www.collegeboard.org/clep for further information about CLEP.
Secondary School Preparation
In reviewing applicants for admission, the secondary school record is typically the most important credential in the evaluation. AMC recommends a traditional college preparatory program of study as the most appropriate preparation for admission.
