As a transfer student at Moore College of Art and Design, the transition from my former community college was made very easy. They also accept transfer credits from many institutions which is very helpful. The community of students and faculty there is supportive and willing to help you with whatever you need. Moore also gives you free access to many of the museums in Philadelphia so that you have plenty of resources and inspiration.
Review Moore College of Art & Design
Moore College's on campus housing is fairly good. they offer resident halls in the same building where classes are held which is extremely convenient, especially during bad weather. Moore also has another residence hall in close proximity for people who want single rooms. There is generally good availability in either hall so you will likely always get the room choice you want. However, single rooms are small and there is no air conditioning in that hall.
It was actually very easy getting into my program. You just have to be diligent with your art, and have a strong portfolio! I'd say the most important criteria is having good grades from High School, and LOTS of life drawings in your portfolio; however, make sure to be yourself and include personal artworks, and things drawn from fantasy and from your head! The college loves to see diversity, and potential in each prospective student. I was accepted a few days after submitting my online portfolio actually, and I'd say my works were amateur at best. Just remember that they are looking for these things in your art : diversity, some skill, life drawings, and that you are able to challenge yourself!
