What is the Summer Hospitality Program?

In a nutshell, this is a great opportunity for prospective students to get an actual feel of what it’s like to live in campus. Think of it as a much more expanded open house program—only this time, you actually get to stay in house.

There will be campus tours, sessions with an admissions advisor, and even time to go around the city for some sightseeing and dinner.

This weekend experience won’t be enough to answer all your questions about Academy of Art, though, and for sure, you’ll have more questions than when you first walk into the program. Then again, that’s precisely the beauty of it. Having all these questions—ready to be answered by your admissions advisor—will lead you a step closer to finding the answers you need. 

How to Join

Getting in the Summer Hospitality Program is easy! Just completely fill out the application form, indicate your preferred dates, and voila! You’ll soon receive a confirmation email (as in within 3 business days soon), which should include all the other additional arrival documents.

Important: make sure that you complete and return your arrival documents as instructed, otherwise your reservation may be cancelled. Reservations are also booked for a full two night-stay.
