What does the MFA Visual Narrative 2023 schedule look like?

We’ve been getting a lot of questions about the schedule for this coming summer’s new year. MFA Visual Narrative is a low-residency program so it can be challenging to see how things ramp up as the warm months approach. So we’ve made a calendar for those of you who want to see the dates in one place. You can also see details on the Program page.

1/15 | First Round application deadline for first consideration for scholarships. Application reviews will continue until seats are filled.

May | Some online training and onboarding meetings for new students.

6/2 | Orientation

6/5 | Classes begin

6/19 | Day off, Juneteeth holiday

6/30-7/4 | Holiday break

7/28 | Last day of classes.

Of course, if you have any questions just drop us an email at
