<< Back to College of Critical & Professional Studies

Summer Institute 2020 on-campus programs are cancelled. Instead, we are excited to launch innovative online programs designed to introduce high school students to new artistic ideas, build skills and strengthen portfolios while they earn college credit. We hope you will join us online this summer!

As we make this transition, students enrolled in on-campus programs should monitor email for updates regarding next steps. Details about online programs, including format, schedules, tuition rates and how to register will be available by May 15. 

UArts staff is currently working remotely. Please direct all questions and inquiries to precollege@uarts.edu.
