International Applicants

International applicants are encouraged, however the College cannot provide any I-20 or other forms to nonmatriculated students, so it is your responsibility to speak with your consulate to determine the proper means of traveling to the United States. SVA cannot provide you with a visa, nor assist you in obtaining one.

Refund Policy

To withdraw from a credit or noncredit Division of Continuing Education course you must notify the Registrar's Office, in writing, of your intention to withdraw. You may do so: by e-mailing your withdrawal to dropce@sva.edu; by sending written notification via mail or fax; or by completing a withdrawal form, in person, at the Registrar's Office. The office is located at 205 East 23rd Street. Failure to complete a course does not constitute official withdrawal, nor does notification to the instructor, nor does lack of attendance, nor does dissatisfaction with a course.

For further details on the refund policy, please click here.

Registration Requirements

The general requirements for registration are as follows:

  • Students must have a high school diploma or equivalency diploma.
  • Students under 18 years of age must have the signature of a parent or guardian on their registration form.

Some of the ¿Hablas Diseño? summer courses are bilingual and require fluency in the Spanish language in order to complete assignments.  In such cases, students should have a sufficient understanding of Spanish in order to create work that successfully communicates with its intended audience.
