All Majors Other Than Computer Animation

 
Ringling College accepts applications throughout the year on Rolling Admission for all majors other than Computer Animation, meaning there is no specific application deadline.   
 

Some important dates to consider:

 

  • February 15 – President’s Scholarship Deadline.  Students who complete their application and submit all required admissions materials prior to this date will considered for the President’s Scholarship (one awarded per major).   Other merit-based scholarships are ongoing.
  • March 1 - Priority FAFSA filing deadline.  Students who fill out a FAFSA by this date will be given priority by the Office of Financial Aid when awarding financial aid
  • May 1 - Deadline to request a refund for a confirmation fee.  Students accepted for majors other than Computer Animation may still confirm intent to enroll after May 1; however, all confirmation fees are nonrefundable after this date. 
 
 

Computer Animation

 
Computer Animation is the only major at Ringling College with specific application deadlines.  Computer Animation applicants may choose from two options: Early Action and Regular Decision.  Early Action is non-binding, meaning applicants who choose this option will receive a decision earlier, but will still have until May 1 to confirm their intent to enroll.  Computer Animation applicants who do not specifically choose the Early Action option on their application will automatically be reviewed for Regular Decision.
 
 
 

Early Action (non-binding)

 
  • November 1 – Application deadline.  All admissions materials must be postmarked or electronically submitted.  (Applicants for Early Action who do not submit all required materials by November 1 will be automatically deferred to Regular Decision.)
  • Late December – Decisions sent.  Decisions will be mailed to all Early Action applicants by late December
  • May 1 - Deadline to submit intent to enroll/confirmation fee.  In order to hold a spot in the program, students accepted to Computer Animation must confirm their intent to enroll and submit the confirmation fee by May 1.  Please note that all confirmation fees for the Computer Animation major are nonrefundable. 
 

Regular Decision

 
  • January 15 – Application deadline.  All admissions materials must be postmarked or electronically submitted.
  • By April 1 – Decisions sent.  Decisions will be mailed to all Regular Decision applicants by April 1st.
  • May 1 - Deadline to submit intent to enroll/confirmation fee.  In order to hold a spot in the program, students accepted to Computer Animation must confirm their intent to enroll and submit the confirmation fee by May 1.  Please note that all confirmation fees for the Computer Animation major are nonrefundable.
