Billing Process

Students attending the NYSRP will retain their affiliation, financial aid status, and registration with their home institutions, and will be on “independent study” or “mobility” during the NYSRP semester. Students are responsible for paying all tuition and fees to their home institution; tuition and registration fees will not be payable to SVA, except in cases where students register for additional courses at SVA of their own volition, or make use of SVA’ s specialized facilities. NYSRP students will be registered as “Visiting Students” (or similar designation) at SVA. Unofficial transcripts will be sent by SVA to the student’s home institution as a courtesy record of NYSRP activity. All credits, grades and official transcripts will be granted at the discretion of the home school in accordance with its own policies.

NYSRP students may register and pay separately for SVA courses which provide access to the specific facilities associated with those courses. In such cases they would be subject to the academic and grading policies of SVA, and those classes will be entirely separate from the NYSRP and should not conflict in scheduling with the NYSRP seminar and critique sessions.

NYSRP Students will be issued regular SVA student ID cards, and receive all discounts, reciprocal arrangements, and student services as may be available to other SVA students with IDs. SVA’s open laboratories and equipment will be available to NYSPR students, subject to any SVA policies. Individual students will be responsible for paying any studio or equipment use fees directly to SVA and will be responsible for SVA library book returns and late fees in order to receive NYSRP grades and credits.

    I love how much energy the city has and how densely packed it is with creativity and inspiration. There’s always so much going on it would be impossible to do it all, but I really like that amount of opportunity, even if it is overwhelming at times. I feel like I have a better idea of what it would be like to be an independent artist working in New York after having participated in the program, and I am interested in coming back to New York after I graduate.
