What to do next.
Welcome! You’ve been invited to join our eclectic, industrious group of artists and designers.
But you’re not done yet – please complete the steps and forms below.
Self-Service is the system used to create your Ringling College online account. It can be accessed via the Ringling portal at my.ringling.edu. The “New Account” link will provide the information required to create your new account.
Hold your spot! Once you have received your acceptance letter, you must submit your $500 confirmation fee in
order to attend in the Fall.
This step is critical to confirming you will attend.
Once we receive your payment, we will notify you to fill out your paperwork and request on-campus housing. We guarantee housing to all new students who request it by May 1 for the following fall semester. Please note that the confirmation fee is nonrefundable for the Computer Animation major. For all other majors, it is nonrefundable after May 1.
How to submit payment:
Online: Payments may be made through the online secure payment portal, accessible through your Self-Service account. All major credit cards and electronic checks accepted.
Mail: Payment may be made by checks payable to Ringling College of Art and Design and mailed to:

Get your high school diploma or GED
If you are still enrolled in high school or home-schooled, you must obtain your diploma or GED.
Maintain that GPA
Acceptance doesn’t mean your studies are over – whether you are in high school, home-school, or another college/university, you must maintain a 2.0 GPA or higher to enroll.
