Parsons Paris ~ School Of Art + Design

Fall Entry
Secondary school students or transfer students who have not completed a foundation year should apply for the first-year Foundation Program. The academic year routinely starts at the beginning of September.

Spring Entry
The Accelerated Foundation program that commences in the spring semester is a full foundation program: the first semester runs from January to mid-May and the second semester starts one week later and runs to the end of July. The curriculum is the same as fall entry Foundation but is more intense as it is completed in a shorter period of time. Upon successful completion of the Accelerated Foundation program students commence the sophomore year in the subsequent fall semester.

Students may apply to transfer into the second semester of the Foundation sequence if they have taken equivalent coursework elsewhere. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to decide into which of the Foundation sequences the student may enter based on a student's portfolio and transcripts.
