Exchange Students and Scholars | MICA

Welcome perspective exchange students! We are pleased that you are interested in the Maryland Institute College of Art. Please take some time to explore the various webpages, starting with the MICA homepage, to learn more about what makes our institution a wonderful place to live and study.

Does Your Institution have an Exchange Agreement with MICA?

Take a moment to consult with the study abroad and exchange office of your home institution to determine if the Maryland Institute College of Art is an exchange partner.  The Office of International Education at MICA is also a member of the Association of Independent Colleges of Art and Design (AICAD) consortium, which supports domestic exchange between member schools, and some overseas partner institutions.  For more information about AICAD, and to see if your institution is a member, please visit the AICAD website for further details.

At this time, MICA is not able to support applications for non-matriculating (visiting students) outside of our student exchange agreements.  If you wish to attend MICA to complete an accredited 4-year degree program, please consult the MICA Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
